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?

 

As GreyRavenC correctly pointed out, you cannot have a vow that is an add-on to a previous vow. Each unit that is part of your vow must be a standalone legal entry from your preferred list (in our case DAs).

 

However, since you're opting for a 10-strong squad, why not break it down to two five-strong perfectly legal squads? It's also a bit more points efficient - although not enough to really matter! :D

 

 

 

I Lostrael vow to complete 
one Rhino and a Devastator Squad before August 15th, 2016. 
 
 1 Rhino
 5 Devastator
  2x missile launcher
  2x grav-cannons
  Sgt. with power fist and combi-grav
  armorium cherub
  -> 245 Points

gallery_86236_11073_19351.jpg

 

 

Lostrael FTW! Let's see this baby enter the fray! And grav-cannons! :evil:

 

 

OK guys, we need to get some completions done this week.The 12% completion rate keeps us back on both the total points and the ability to re-vow! So no multiplied effect for us. Even if we manage to get a good completion rate at the end, if we're denied the multiplier effect, we will be greatly handicapped! So no more procrastination, let's see those vows completed!

 

UPDATED TO THIS POINT!

Still a ways to go, but with only the assault squads, leviathan and deredeo requiring major work, and the others inking and touchups, i should have my vow completed by this weekend.

I have not yet located my Cataphractaii models, but I did find my paints, so I'll stick to new models for Vow 2,

 

I, Grotsmasha, rise to the challenge of E TENEBRAE LUX and vow to complete;

 

1x Dark Angel Company Master

=> Terminator Armour

=> Monster Slayer of Caliban

 

gallery_48988_11612_10935.jpg

 

for 160pts,

 

and

 

1x 5 Man Scout Squad

=> Heavy Bolter

=> Power Fist

 

gallery_48988_11612_121776.jpg

 

for 88pts,

 

for a total of 248pts

 

from Codex: Dark Angels on or before August 15th, 2016. Success will bring eternal glory to Lion El Jonson and the Unforgiven Legion and failure will doom me to bear the Badge of the Oathbreaker until the year-end.

 

EDIT: The sergeant WILL have his Chainswoed replaced, just have to find one....

Cheers Capt.  yeah the aim is to have the 2 Razorbacks as the 3rd vow ... I have also just made a Grav Cmd. Squad with banner, an Assault Squad and another Company Master ... but these will only be contemplated after i do the RB's.  At the very least i hope to get the Company Master done in the ETL.

 

Keep it up folks, some great work going on here!

The first week of a new vow always seems to be very slow progress...

 

I have got the main colours done on 2 assault squads and the tactical Sgt along with some shading and highlighting. More to follow with the beginning of detailing next week and I hope to have them all done in 2 weeks. They don't look like much now but they will get better ;)

Master Ramiel looked up his face grave, "Brothers the inner circle has called, though we have been engaged on all fronts by the ruinous powers the call has been sounded and we must answer."  Around him were Codicier Zadikial, Chaplain Trentus and the Veteran Brother Sargent who had delivered the stunning news the Rock had called and they were late. Zadikal shifted uncomfortably in his war plate his eyes flickering with the lambent power of the warp harnessed by his transhuman will and iron hard discipline "many go now to the rock but as yet only a few have arrived there is yet time to honour our duties to the legion" . "True borther but we follow the spoor of the fallen how do we balance these sacred duties?" interjected Sargent Tokugawa. "There is no conflict in our duties. We must prosecute both courses of action even if it be unto our deaths, there can only be victory no matter the cost" Chaplain Trentus used his quiet, gravelly tone the one he usually reserved for those of his charges who needed coxing back to the path Ramiel noticed, Tokugawa noticed it too judging by the way he a full brother of the Arch Angellis briefly looked like a lost novitiate before accepting the rebuke. "You're counsel is well timed as ever my friend, take a vexillation go to the rock. We shall follow with the full strength of 3rd company. Know that the chapter mobilizes even now once again the angels shall unite and our foes shall know that their efforts are in vain" Ramiel had spoken 3rd company's path was set the vows had been made long ago and would be renewed by action.

 

Or in other words I punk possum vow:

1 jump pack company Chaplain 105pts

1 Dreadnought with twin linked las cannon 115pts

1 Drop pod with Deathwind launcher 50pt

For a total of 220pts

So let's see more completions everybody! The completion rate is still just south of 13% whereas other factions are approaching 40%! If we do not see some of those fist vows completed soon we'll be at a significant disadvantage in the closing stages of the event!

Well done farfromsam, lovely work there! The B@C models versatility is just too good for words! Now let's see that Cerastus making an appearance! 

 

Please edit the completion and the new vow in your completion post above - there is no need to update your initial vow as I never go back to search. The only pic that is required in your initial vow is the "before" pic of said vow. I have linked your post above to the first page. ;)

A 3,000pts completion! :tu: Fantastic work there - you are officially a hero of the Chapter sir! You also boosted our completion rate to almost 20%! 

 

 

Now let's see, our completion rate is still among the lowest despite Tanyr's impressive completion. Our average vow is not that impressive at a bit south of 600pts but is not that bad either. All we need is to boost out completion rate especially among the first vows! I'm sure that at least some smaller vows must be close to completion... Will we have some more points under our belt when the Weekly update hits? Let's try to get at the high 20s in completion rate in the next 24 hrs!
