I, Harleqvin, answer the challenge of the Unforgiven and vow to complete a 5-man Assault Squad with a Rhino (Power fist, 3 Plasma pistols, Combat shield, Meltabomb, Pintle-mounted Storm bolter and Hunter-killer missile,) and a Contemptor Pattern Dreadnought (Heavy Conversion Beamer, Graviton Gun, Extra Armor, Searchlight, Carapace-mounted Cyclone Missile Launcher and Targeting Augury, from IA: Apocalypse 2nd Edition pages 24-25,) from Codex: Dark Angels of total value 526 points on or before August 15. Success will bring eternal glory to The First Legion, The Dark Angels and failure will doom me to bear the sign of damnation until the year-end!

Tomorrow I will make a thread in the DA section that will have the pics and will link it to this in an edit. I may end up adding a second vow to this after I finish these.


edit - Here is the link to the thread for my ETL pics. My ETL thread

Doh. I started on some new stuff last week, but already completed a few models. I'll figure out tonight what I expect I can accomplish before August 15, and make a vow shortly.

Edit: I'm assuming I cannot use those models that I do before I make my vow, even if it's during the competition timeframe. That way it can't be seen as "cheating" in any way.

Correct. You have to start work on your models after you place your vow. Now if you want to pledge a 10-strong squad and you have only painted one mini, then we can work something out (like excluding the points associated with it) but the general rule is that work has to start afte you make your vow.

Success will bring eternal glory to the Dark Angels and failure will doom me to bear the sign of damnation until the year-end”

So in a little more detail:

Tactical squad w/power weapon/plasma pistol/plasmagun/ plasma cannon
Ravenwing Landspeeder w/typhoon missile launcher/multi-melta
Deathwing squad w/3 THSS/1 LCs/ cyclone missile launcher

This will be linked to my current WIP thread here.

Hmm dang i was wondering if i could use a full DW squad which i dug out, assembled, no basing/painting so far on them??^...Cmon they got FW shoulderpads!!! <_<

Been making a inventory of my GW stuff, many things in any stage of WiP you can imagine^^

But i guess i should start relearning painting on less expensive models...my problem is, im too much of a perfectionist. at least too much for my skills :huh:

Of course you can. This is a painting competition. When I say: work should start after the you place a vow, I mean: painting should start after you place your vow. Your DW squad sounds like a good candidate for the ETL - go ahead and vow for it! ;)

@ Captain Semper: Yeah i really want to start with anything...but still digging for my old colours/tools and i need to make some purchases, which wont happen until monday i guess(im a proud but broke brother ;))!

When im ready i will paint some easy stuff for starters, like imperial assassins, a BB humans teams...simply to regain some of my long unused painting skills!

Also i got some hints what new colours i might need, then ill make some DA test models, and if i like it i may place a vow ;)...since im finacially VERY tight, i hope you can understand that i want esp all those FW stuff on the best possible quality im able to deliver:lol:

But at least im not on my own here, got a friend who will help me go on and esp teach me on painting...got this guy to the hobby he worked for GW some time too^^

Well i could show some of my old models if i could find my data cable, so you guys can see what to expect from me at least ;)

Edit: As i understand the rules i need to choose units from one codex...so i can mix DA and successor chapter units?

The unit has to be chosen from a given Codex and have some reasonable level of WYSIWYG. How you paint it is up to you. There is no paint police here :) You wanna do DAs? Fine. You wanna do known Successors? Also fine. You wanna do your own DIY Successor? Super fine! All these provided that are chosen and costed from the DAs Codex.

All in all, be as creative as you like and have fun! ;)

Okay, the fanatical support of my brothers has awakened my spirit for battle....

I EPK answer the challenge of the Unforgiven and vow to complete a Land Speeder Typhoon from Codex: Dark Angels of total value 75 points on or before August 15. Success will bring eternal glory to the Dark Angels and failure will doom me to bear the sign of damnation until the year-end

Nothing big, I know - but I wanted to show my support. Perhaps if I have time, I will expand to a second (but I will be on vacation from June 26-July 8 so don't count on it). I already have this baby primed and ready to go.

I'll toss a picture of the primed mini in my Unforgiven thread when I get home today.

“I, Shadow Guard, Kepper of the Fortress and Chapter Master of the Angels Revenant Chapter answer the challenge of the Unforgiven and vow to complete two complete Ravenwing Attack Squadrons from Codex: Dark Angels of total value 850 points on or before August 15. Success will bring eternal glory to the Lion and the Legio Unforgiven and failure will doom me to bear the sign of damnation until the year-end”

Well, took the plunge after a lot of thought. I had thought of continuing my failed LPC 2011 Deathwing Army project which has remained stalled but thought it would cause issues as it was half painted already. Then I thought of continuing my successful vow for the LPC 2012, the Scout Army project but realised that though they wore DA colours the army was based on C:SM. Anyway, since i had two half done projects why not make it three? A project that was conceived enarly ten years ago is finally taking shape in the form of the Ravenwing. I did think of pledging a single bike squad and then building up or pledging a single attack squadron and then adding the next, then I thought, why not pledge the whole hog upfront? :) Ialso thought that unlike the DW and Scout projects I will keep this entire project in plastic and no greenstuff as it would only delay my painting.

Wish me luck ..... hre they are ready for priming....

I will maintain a blog on the Fortress website with details Project Company of Ravens

POINTS:

Ravenwing Attack Squadron 1 = 430 points
Ravenwing Bikes x 6 = 220
Sergeant with Powerfist, Meltabomb & Plasmapistol = 45
Biker with Meltagun
Biker with Flamer
Attack bike with multimelta
Landspeeder Tornado

Ravenwing Attack Squadron 2 = 420 points
Ravenwing Bikes x 6 = 220
Sergeant with Powerweapon, Meltabomb & Plasmapistol = 35
Biker with Meltagun
Biker with Flamer
Attack bike with multimelta
Landspeeder Tornado

Total pledge = 850 points

One sergeant will be armed with a powerfist and the plasmapistol stored on the bike. Second sergeant will be armed with the plasma pistol and the power weapon stored on the bike. As I read it the sergeant can replace his boltpistol with the plasma pistol and take the PW or PF as an additional choice. If this is wrong someone please let me know and I will adjust the points. At the moment I can't find any plasmapistols that do not have a hand attached to it. Anyone know where there might be one?

Captain Semper, please confirm the total points and add my vow to the list pelase.
