THE CHALLENGE

Brothers,

The Master of Recruits calls to you again. We’ve been silent for too long brothers. This time the Glory of the First Legion will shine across the Galaxy in an unprecedented event of gargantuan proportions!

In the name of the Lion and by the authority of the Inner Circle, the First Legion issues a Challenge to all other Chapters / factions here in B&C. So come brothers, show all what the First Legion is made of, show all what the measure of a true Space Marine is!

Nothing will stand in our way!

+++WE ARE THE EMPEROR’S WRATH! LET THE BLOOD OF THE UNCLEAN ACT AS AN OFFERING TO THE LION’S SHADE+++

Welcome to E TENEBRAE LUX, the Dark Angels Painting Challenge. This Challenge aims to cultivate faction loyalty and tighten the relations of members of the various forums while getting miniatures painted at the same time. E TENEBRAE LUX is structured quite differently compared to the LPC that many of you might be familiar with. It is designed to play down the inherent disadvantage of low vow-count (that some forums seem to suffer from), evening out as much as possible the chance of victory for all. It also allows for the development of strategies such as to who’s going to paint what, under the coordination of moderators or other active members of your sub-forum. Even a last minute hero might tip the balance!!!


THE RULES

1. ELIGIBLE FORUMS: This challenge involves all the sub-forums that are associated with a Codex officially released by GW. See eligible forums in the “Important Stuff” section below.

2. VOWS: Each participant MUST declare the sub-forum (and hence the Codex to be used) in his/her vow. That’s how his/her allegiance will be defined. You cannot pledge for the Blood Angels sub-forum for example and use Codex: Space Wolves units as your vow. One has to make a choice. This is different from the LPC where people can paint whatever they like and pledge it for whichever forum they like. Here it’s about faction loyalty! So make your choice and support your preferred faction to the bitter end!

3. LEGAL ENTRIES: Each vow should be a legal unit from the chosen Codex. It can be upgraded with any legal upgrades but WYSIWYG is required. An exception is made for dedicated transports that can be entered individually as if they were standalone entries in any Codex. Furthermore Special Characters that are used as squad upgrades can also be entered individually and are worth the “upgrade” points. If in doubt of whether your vow is legal or not, feel free to raise the question (publicly or through PMs) and you will receive the ruling of the Inner Circle before you commit.

4. THE TWIST: EXPANDING THE VOWS: Here is the twist: once the vow is complete, a new vow with additional units can be added but they should also be legal entries from chosen Codex as described above. This new vow must be clearly made according to the same format of the original vow. It should be stressed that the participant is liable for all the vows he makes. Failing one is failing all. So think carefully before stepping-up your commitment, if you fail on the second or subsequent vows all is lost!

5. THE WINNER: The sub-forum with the most points (as per relevant Codex) in the end of the event wins. As simple as that. Those that complete their vows successfully will get an amazing banner declaring their success in the Dark Angels Challenge while those that vowed for the winning forum will get the “Dark Angels Challenge Champions” banner that can wear with pride until the end of their days! Those that fail will be branded with the banner of shame until the year-end!


IMPORTANT STUFF


Timing of the event:

E TENEBRAE LUX opening: May 15th
Vow submission period: May 15th until June 15th at 22:00 GMT
E TENEBRAE LUX ending: August 15 at 22:00 GMT.

The format of the vow should be:

“I [insert name here] answer the challenge of the Unforgiven and vow to complete [insert unit name here] from Codex: [insert Codex name here] of total value [insert point value here] on or before August 15. Success will bring eternal glory to [insert Chapter/Legion/Warband] and failure will doom me to bear the sign of damnation until the year-end”


Eligible Forums:

• Black Templars – Codex: Black Templars
• Blood Angels – Codex: Blood Angels
• Dark Angels – Codex: Dark Angels
• Index Astartes – Codex: Space Marines
• Liber Astartes – Codex: Space Marines
• Space Wolves – Codex: Space Wolves
• Ultramarines – Codex: Space Marines
• ALL Chaos sub-forums – Codex: Chaos Space Marines OR Codex: Chaos Daemons
• Ordos Inquisition – Codex: Grey Knights OR SoBs PDF.
• Adeptus Mechanichus – IMPERIAL TITANS ONLY! (more on that in the Forgeworld section below)

Forgeworld: Forgeworld entries are legal provided it is clearly stated that the unit can be used in the chosen Codex in the 40k context. They worth the points as depicted in the relevant Forgeworld publication. The only exception here is Imperial Titans. For people that want to have a go with Imperial Titans they can legitimately do so if the vow is pledged for Adeptus Mechanicus. That’s the only non-Codex entries that are legal in this Challenge and the only vows that can be pledged on behalf of the Adeptus Mechanicus.

Only two pictures are required – one in the beginning (minis unpainted or primed or in very early stages of painting) and one for the finished vow. You are of course welcome to post as many pictures as you like in your WIP thread – but just two (one at the start and one at the finish) will suffice!

This thread is the “Chapter House” for this event. All vows of this sub-forum should be posted in this very thread in order to be valid. This is also the place to declare vow completions and/or vow renewals. Finally posting your WIP thread links in your vow post will be tremendously helpful! This is a big event guys, so making life easier for me, will help avoid confusion and backs ‘n forths…

You can also use this thread to gauge the progress of your forum (I’ll update often) and compare it with other forums in their respective threads. It will also be a good place to talk to each other as how to go about it, and organize your forum effort.

I am Captain Semper and the Inner Circle has given me command of this event. I’ll be glad to answer any questions as we go along and I will keep track of all forums’ efforts. So I’m the person you need to talk to for anything regarding the procedures of this competition but Moderators still have full control of the Meltas, Flamers and Blades of Reason. And they will gladly use all of them given half a chance...

May the best forum win!

Here we go again!So i am the first in here to take my vow in front of my brothers.

I brother Immolator answer the challenge of the Unforgiven and vow to complete a tactical squad of ten marine models a command squad of five models and company master from Codex: Dark angels of total value of 475 points, on or before August 15. Success will bring eternal glory to the Dark angels Legion and failure will doom me to bear the sign of damnation until the year-end”.

EDIT 2 and final:

Squad wargear and composition brake down:

10man tactical squad (including vet sergeant): Plasma Cannon / Flamer,Sergeant plasma pistol.
5 man Command squad: Apothecary upgrade,one power fist.
Company master: Power weapon,storm bolter.

I Brother Paul answer the challenge of the Unforgiven and vow to complete (1) Deathwing Squad from Codex: Dark Angels of total value 235pts on or before August 15. Success will bring eternal glory to The Unforgiven and failure will doom me to bear the sign of damnation until the year-end

My intention is to paint one Deathwing Squad with a CML.

Paul

My Remaining Intentions will be case by case:

3x Additional Deathwing Squads
1x Land Raider Crusader
1x Godhammer Land Raider
1x Librarian in Terminator Armor (Grand Librarian Beldonis)

Work load leads me to believe that a small vow that is added to is better than a large vow failed by one or two models.

Nothing. Go for it! Since every forum can do it, it's neither an advantage nor a disadvantage. In fact it will take some coordination to make sure the "proper" units will be chosen - which we want to encourage! Also there is the natural limitation of what people have, want or need to paint. So yes, nothing stops anyone from choosing expensive units. Actually this in combination with the second or subsequent vows evens the odds somewhat for forums that have lower vow-counts than others.

I know I could extend my vow later, but I do better under pressure! ;)

Okay, question: How does this:

4. THE TWIST: EXPANDING THE VOWS: Here is the twist: once the vow is complete, a new vow with additional units can be added but they should also be legal entries from chosen Codex as described above. This new vow must be clearly made according to the same format of the original vow. It should be stressed that the participant is liable for all the vows he makes. Failing one is failing all. So think carefully before stepping-up your commitment, if you fail on the second or subsequent vows all is lost!

interact with this:

E TENEBRAE LUX opening: May 15th
Vow submission period: May 15th until June 15th at 22:00 GMT
E TENEBRAE LUX ending: August 15 at 22:00 GMT.

Do all vows (initial and subsequent) have to be made prior to June 15th, or just the initial?


Also, since I'm here, I assume that upgrades that have no physical representation (for example, Veteran Skills for certain Black Templar units) can't be used to add points to those units that can take them. Is this correct?

I prefer to think that bolt weapons do, in fact, use cased ammunition - mostly for the reasons you state. It looks cool. They jingle when they hit hard ground. It's like the Emperor's wind chimes.

Forgeworld entries are legal provided it is clearly stated that the unit can be used in the chosen Codex in the 40k context.


Quick point of clarification: does this include experimental rules or just officially sanctioned models?

Hey Cap, 3 points of clarification,

1- Are Contemptors eligable for DAs?
2- Its just points costs, right? I ask because I dont game and want to use non-standard base sizes.
3- I have an Asmodai I wish to paint, but with no Codex entry, can I use the Interrogator-Chaplain points cost? I do not want to convert him to make him 'wysiwyg'.

Cheers,
Jono

I, Bringer of Redemption, answer the challenge of the Unforgiven and vow to complete:

2 Tactical Squads (10 marines, plasma pistol, plasma gun, ML) 410
1 Drop Pod 50
1 Land Raider Crusader (Pintle mounted Storm Bolter) 255
1 Scout Squad (1 ML) 100
1 Command Squad (Power Sword, Apoc, Company Champion, Sacred Standard, Plasma Pistol) 195
1 Company Master (Plasma Pistol, TLC, Jump Pack) 165
1 Dreadnought (Venerable, TLLC) 165

from Codex: Dark angels of total value 1340 points on or before August 15. Success will bring eternal glory to the Dark Angels Legion and failure will doom me to bear the sign of damnation until the year-end.

So, there goes all my free time (and spare cash) this summer. This is what happens when you buy the megaforce over Christmas break, but can't actually start painting until later. Just for completeness' sake, I'll paint the Land Speeder Storm that came with it, but obviously that can't be entered into this contest.

Hey Jono,

1- Contemptors are eligible - see the bit about FW in the "Important stuff section".
2- Point costs only. Don't worry about the base sizes. Worry about having a base :HQ:
3- Yes you can use the Interrogator Chaplain cost. However if you do not convert, he'll count as an plain Int. Chaplain. Zero points for the power sword as it is not an option in the current Codex AFAIK.

Just the initial. After the 15th there will be no new entrants to the Challenge. Old entrants however would be able to enter subsequent vows after the 15th PROVIDED they have completed the previous vow. But be careful: If you fail on a subsequent vow all previous vows are nullified! So you have to be extra confident when you raise the stakes! :P


Also, since I'm here, I assume that upgrades that have no physical representation (for example, Veteran Skills for certain Black Templar units) can't be used to add points to those units that can take them. Is this correct?


You are right. benefits fron items that have no physical represntation cannot be gained. However there are situations (like Terminator honors for example) that a simple purity seal will qualify as WYSIWYG. Or appropriate painting can depict a Mark of Chaos. Also a seperate entry is a seperate entry - So if someone enters a Master of Sanctity (as opposed to a Reclusiarch) he benefits from difference in points - i.e. there is no reason why you should go for cheaprer options if you can achieve better point count with the more expensive counterparts. Same for, say, power armoured Interrogator Chaplains vs. normal Chaplains for the DAs. If you say it's Interoggator then that's what he is.

We want people to paint what they want. However there also should be a level of comparability. So experimental rules are OK provided they clearly state the unit can be used in the 40k context and provide points for it.
