Lostrael that is some lovely painting. Hope they work as well as they look in battle - you're sure to win if they do!

Dark Angel player for just over a year (this time - played in 2nd Ed too!)

Developing, mixed 4000 or so points, still nothing that I call "a finished Army" yet.

Always looking for a game in my local area - let me know if you are near Andover, Hants, UK and fancy playing someone easy to beat!

Of cause I will do a second vow. For the Lion and the Honor of the First!

 :lol:

 

Truth is, the longer we remain with a low completion rate, the more we deprive ourselves from a substantial re-vowing rate - something we need desperately. Last year for example our completion rate was ok, but people sprang into action the last couple of weeks - so yes, they made their first vow in, but the absolute amount of points was not benefitted by re-vowings...

My arsenal of unpainted models is as good as depleted. After vow 5, I'll have absolutely nothing left to paint. I'll use all my vows, and make sure my completion is 100%. The 'pièce de résistance' will be for the last vow.

But since my impact pointwise will be pretty small, I'm counting on the rest of our brothers of the Chapter/Legion to put up a fight with the other factions.

 

We only have 11 brothers with completed vows, that's a very low number in comparison to the number of participants. 

 

EDIT: Wrong chapter, but relevant to the cause:

Well... At least we've doubled our completion date from last week...

Question for an upcoming vow. If I vow a half assault squad (sergeant and 4 brothers), can I vow the other half of the squad in a subsequent vow? Or do all 10 have to be at the same time for it to be a legal squad?

5 marines is a legal squad, so you could vow them as 2 separate squads.

I checked again, just to be sure I'm not contradicting the Captain. Every unit you can legally take from the codex is viable as vow. So since you can choose squads with 5 dudes (without combatsquading them), you're good to go. 

 

 

Units

Each vow should contain one or more legal units from your chosen Codex or associated army list. Units may be upgraded with any legal upgrades but WYSIWYG is required. Also note that upgrades that cannot be physically represented on the miniatures are not worth any points for the purposes of ETL. If in doubt of whether your vow is legal or not, feel free to raise the question (publicly or through PM) and you will receive my ruling before you commit (also see “FAQs” section below).

Q: Can my second vow be an expansion of my first vow? For example if I vowed and completed a 5-strong tactical squad can I then vow for another 3 to bring it to a total of 8?

A: No. Each entry should be a standalone legal unit from the list of your choice. No add-ons on previous vows.

How you are going to play them doesn't matter, vow them as their own squad even though you're not going to play them that way.
