THE CHALLENGE

Here we are again... The Lion and the Wolf!

Our paths have crossed countless times in the past, each time a challenge. Will you honor the tradition this time, Sons of Russ? Will you stand where the ones before you did? Or will you cower away pretending it’s not your fight? Will you dare face the full might of the First Legion? We are here. We are ready. The Unforgiven will not turn away. Will you?

+++FOR THE FINAL BATTLE. FOR THE WOLFTIME+++

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!

Wont this drive people to painting characters over units?? If I paint Logan, he's what 270? (no codex on hand). Thats well over a unit of Grey hunters.. hummm paint one mini or 10+ for the same points? I think the challenge is great in itself... but I think the scoring of the challenge is a little lopsided...
maybe break it down
power armored mini 5 pts.
termi armored mini 10 pts
rino based 35pts (razorback/vindi/pred)
landraider 50pts
something like that I would think.

Well, we think it's a lot less lopsided than the standard LPC where a single miniature or an entire army counts as a sigle vow. The LPC that the B+C runs is essentially a motivator for hobbyists to do some painting. We've taken it a little further as an inter-forum challenge... and you are certainly right in that there may be a profusion of characters being painted but every forum can do that so it should even out across the boards...


.... besides, none of us will complain about seeing a large number of character models being painted... :P

Well, think of it this way: In the LPC SWs, the most active forum, only came up with 20-odd vows. Now against a forum with double the amount of committed people it would by almost impossible to win. So this way, forums with low vow counts can choose to paint point-rich models to make it up. By all means paint Logan.


do we PM vows?


No. Vows should be there for all to see. You have to post them in this thread (if you vowing for the wolves that is :HQ:). However if you have questions regarding the rules or the legality of ther vow you send me a PM or indeed ask here again - no prob.

If i did a vow for Codex: Space wolves and then My own chapter. Would that negatively impact the space wolves?

Do i have to complete the paint job in space wolves colours in order for the space wolves to get the credit?

Your own chapter, does it use SW Codex? If so, paint them anyway you like. As long as you choose a unit from SWs codex and it's reasonably WYSIWYG you can vow for SW, no problem.

if i do this it will probably be my terminators. there arms are magnetized though. do i get the points for the extra arms?
Conan: "Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing." (The Tower of the Elephant)
Conan: "Did you deem yourself strong, because you were able to twist the heads off civilized folk, poor weaklings with muscles like rotten string? Hell! Break the neck of a wild Cimmerian bull before you call yourself strong. I did that, before I was a full-grown man...!" (Shadows in Zamboula)
Conan: "He grunted with satisfaction. The feel of the hilt cheered him and gave him a glow of confidence. Whatever webs of conspiracy were drawn about him, whatever trickery and treachery ensnared him, this knife was real. The great muscles of his right arm swelled in anticipation of murderous blows."

“I Kassill answer the challenge of the Unforgiven and vow to complete 1 Grey Hunter Squad (9x man with Wolf Standard, Melta Gun, Mark of the Wulfen) and 1 Wolf Guard Battle Leader (Power Fist and Combi Melta) from Codex: Space Wolves of total value of 270pts on or before August 15. Success will bring eternal glory to the Vlka Fenryka and failure will doom me to bear the sign of damnation until the year-end”

I'll start small for now, and depending on how quickly and efficiently I get them down will determine any more vows.


Come Son's of Russ! Let's show these lads how we do it! -_-

Edited by Kassill, 17 May 2012 - 12:42 PM.

Lo, there do I see my fallen kinsmen, Threads cut by the foe I now seek. In bloody battle I will engage him, And carve my vengeance from his flesh. No ale shall pass my lips, At no feast will I indulge. No foe shall stay my wrath, Until my brothers are avenged. Ever shall I hunt my quarry, Across the Sea of Stars. Whilst I yet breathe, I will not falter, Until Morkai claims his due.--Bjorn's Oath of the Lone Wolf

Damn,
ive literally just finished painting up about 3000 points worth of space wolves over the last 2-3 months.

All I have left is some fenrisian wolves (which are old goblin rider models without goblins) and an old ragnar model.

Have my eye on a couple things though so might take a vow next week :P

“I Bjorn Stormfang answer the challenge of the Unforgiven and vow to complete a Wolf Lord on Thunderwolf and a 3 man pack of Thunderwolf Cavalry from Codex: Space Wolves of total value of 500 points on or before August 15. Success will bring eternal glory to Vlka Fenryka and failure will doom me to bear the sign of damnation until the year-end”

Wolf Lord will have a frost weapon, storm shield, runic armor, thunderwolf and 2 fen wolves. Saga and WTN not included since they aren't shown on model.
TWC is 3 guys all with storm shields, one with a thunder hammer and one with melta bombs.

I'm afraid not... You have to stick to one faction - this is about faction loyalty! :( So paint Chaos till you drop - I'm sure the Wolves will wake up and catch up! ;) Off course you can withdraw the your vow from Chaos if you want and commit with the Wolves... But I'd avoid dark alleys at night if I were you!

I shall have a wee nosey at my collection and put up a vow - it shall be as follows (likely so not actual vow) 5-10 scouts (2 HB's) totalling 160pts and 10-20 GHs (2 Plasmas + 2 Standards) totalling 340pts - overall around 500pts.

also - where project shown is concerned, is it okay if the models are already in 1 colour? - it's not their final colour, just base coat equivi. and do we need to put up pictures through the whole process akin to the LPC doodah?

either way, thanks chaps.

Simple. The Iron Warriors are a battered and dented vintage AK-47. Iron Hands are a modern factory fresh FN SCAR, with every piece of tech possible hooked to it. Both will kill you stone-dead, but one's a lot prettier while it's killin'.

Yes, if they are in early stages of painting it's fine! Re:photos as it is mentioned above, we only require two - one in the beginning and one in the end!!! Look fwd for your vow!



ALSO now there is now a table in the bottom of the first post that includes all the vows of the brothers of the furry kind! :P Check them out - let me know if there is a prob. There are similar such tables in all sub-forums that participate - so you can check out your progress relative to the others.

Names are in alphabetical order. I intend to update regularly (initial intention is daily). Am I good or what? :) Keep your vows coming guys, although you have some serious points already, weight of numbers also has a part to play.

Link to my thread with progress so far. ;)
Lo, there do I see my fallen kinsmen, Threads cut by the foe I now seek. In bloody battle I will engage him, And carve my vengeance from his flesh. No ale shall pass my lips, At no feast will I indulge. No foe shall stay my wrath, Until my brothers are avenged. Ever shall I hunt my quarry, Across the Sea of Stars. Whilst I yet breathe, I will not falter, Until Morkai claims his due.--Bjorn's Oath of the Lone Wolf
