I would like to send a picture of my tank, but I don't know when I'll get time to take a good shot!

 

I will be posting up the awards ceremony tonight, so keep an eye out for your new ranks then :D

That's what we like to hear Wulfgar, your sig is far too clean. What you need is some nice colour, perhaps some red and white from a shiny medal or two? ;)

 

All commanders should check their vox for a message from Regimental Command!

When we say the commissariat is relentless and never sleeps we're not joking msn-wink.gif We're still chasing that ever elusive 100% completion but everyone who finished for Big Guns did so to the fullest level which is quite an achievement by itself so everyone should be really pleased :)

 

I'm glad it was enjoyable, let's give the next challenge the same amount of effort :tu:

Indeed.
A great many thanks to the commissars.
It was most enjoyable, and I'm looking forward to the newly-announced next challenge!

I got one or two more images PMd to me today.
I'll put together the mosaic this weekend, which still gives people a few more days.

Missed out (just barely) on this challenge. That won't happen again. How many medals until I get to be Regimental Priest?

 

I had a few questions and no where to put them. If the Commissariat find need to chase me down, I'll be over there. Anyway, what is an ETL? Is it something you eat or is it like like this challenge?

Absolutely ashamed of myself, I got my Punisher finished in time, even painted all the extra weapons and made a good start on a ebayed valkyrie I bought, then ended up at work non-stop last week and totally forgot to take and post pics.

I have failed the Emperor.....


Addiction? Nah. Obsession? Probably.

12000 points of Dark Angels. 4000 points of Marines. 3000 points of Astra Squatarium. 1500 points of Genestealer Cult. 4000+ points of Tyranids.

The ranks are purely military ones, but maybe we can sort out some specialist ranks in the future somehow if there's interest?

 

The ETL is serious business, though our humble barracks doesn't have the numbers to threaten some other sections none can doubt our dedication and faith. Just look at the previous ETLs for proof of our valour ;)

 

Don't worry Pigs, you can redeem the honour of your regiment in future Regiments challenges :tu:
