Welcome to ETL V and the Adeptus Sorortitas Strategium! Here is the home for those who want to participate in the ETL putting their weight behind the Codex: Adepta Sororitas! However Sisters of Battle do not fight alone! They have the full backing of the Imperial armies and agencies, so expect the support of the mighty Imperial Guard, the purest of soul Grey Knights and the limitless resources of the Mechanicum and of course the Inquisition! All those forums will stand as one to face their rivals, Loyalists and Traitors alike!
 
The rules of ETL V can be found below:
 

E TENEBRAE LUX V RULES

 
So what purpose does the Strategium serve? Well, its official function includes the following:

  • Post vows & declare completions. This is very important as placing the vows elsewhere will create unnecessary confusion and lead to mistakes. Also if you do not report the completion here, your status will not be updated.
  • Participation tables. Here I will be updating the rosters of participation so make sure you see your name is listed and that your status is correct - and if not, notify me.
  • Post your pictures. Remember, we need at least two – one “before” and one “after” but feel free to post as many WIP pictures as you like!
  • Weekly updates. This is where I’ll be posting every week an update of the event in general so the frater can keep track of what is going on in the wider picture.
  • You are also welcome to use this thread to encourage each other, devise strategies, discuss the developments of the ETL and of course ask questions. For the latter you can also PM me.

 

ALL WHO MAKE A VOW AND ARE LISTED BELOW HAVE EARNED THE RIGHT TO WEAR THE OATH OF MOMENT:
 
ETL_2016_Banner_01_Oath_of_Moment.jpg

 

So with no further ado, let’s begin!

I AQUILANUS, of the LIBER ASTARTES and of the Sisterhood, answer the call of E TENEBRAE LUX V and vow to complete ONE Canoness (Chainsword and Inferno pistol), ONE Cypher (using a Canoness painted and modelled wysiwyg) TWO Penitent Engines, ONE Battle Sister Squad (BSS) (my LotD Squad which is costed as per the Sisters Codex rather than the LotD one, consisting of a Sister Superior with Combi-Flamer and Power Maul [the =][= Icon she carries], FOUR Bolter Sisters, ONE Melta and ONE Multimelta), ONE Priest (the Necromunda "Mad Donna" Ulanti model which has one Plasma pistol and one Chainsword, again wysiwyg), THREE Immolators (stock load out), TWO Exorcists (stock loadout) and ONE Retributor squad (Sister Superior with Plasma pistol and Chainsword, FOUR Battle Sisters, TWO heavy Bolters, ONE Multi Melta and ONE heavy Flamer) at a total cost of 1,192 points, failure will doom me to bear the Badge of Shame until the year-end!

Also: I mistakenly put a Flamer in my (counts as for ETL purposes) LotD squad. It should have been a Melta.

Once, a Novice Cantus came to me, troubled and uncertain. A slip of a girl, only a few strides down the eternal path leading her to the Golden Throne. She asked me a question. She asked me how we can ever truly understand what faith is. I told her that there is no coin to measure what we feel in our hearts. There are no scales upon which we might weigh the faith of one woman against another. There is only duty and blood. There are only deeds and words. There is only the service to the God-Emperor, and the price that demands from each Sister can only be known by Him. But know that whatever fears must be faced, whatever hardships endured, that price is forever worth its full cost.

EDIT: Thanks Miko! No more assistance needed.

 

Hiya folks, this is your not so resident crazy Teetengee looking for a small spot of assistance. I am going to try to track the models painted/vowed for this years ETL (rather than the points) again, as I did last year. However, these days there are far too many new things out for me to really keep track of. Hence the assistance I mentioned.

If someone could pm me a list of all the different units that your forum can legally vow grouped into the following categories, I would be eternally grateful. Please include the minimum size (since many people vow msu without giving model counts) and any relevant details on units that mix these types. Thank you so much!

Pic of my two converted Repressors, project of six is currently ongoing but I had no idea the challenge was coming and didn't wait to start the first two.
 
Two five dominion squads, one is currently painted but will be getting stripped and redone.  My Repentia Living Saint as well.
 
Vow 1
 
My mock up of a Repentia themed Living Saint.  Was just fiddling around with it to see if the cloak would fit to her back.  Looking to lift her up to proper height with a bit of shrine rubble, then add some chains, perhaps a martyred repentia on the ground beneath her.

What the heck!  Lets give it a go... Emperor knows I need to get some painting done, so this is probably just the excuse I need...

 

I, KiwiBen, rise to the challenge of E TENEBRAE LUX and vow to complete:

  • 1x Canoness, with Combi Flamer & Rosarius (90 points)
  • 2x Ministorum Priests, both with Eviscerators (55 points each)
  • 2x Dominion Squads, each of 4x Sisters with  Meltaguns and 1x Veteran Sister Superior with Combi-melta (125 points each)

all chosen from Codex: Adepta Sororitas of total value of 450 points on or before August 15th, 2016. Success will bring eternal glory to The Order of the Gilded Chalice and to the God-Emperor of Mankind, and failure will doom me to bear the Badge of the Oathbreaker until the year-end.

Dom201_zps0jkiefov.jpg

 

Obviously some of these will require some conversion work etc - which, in hind sight, I probably should have gotten done before I vowed them...  I've got a third unit of 5 Dominions to make up as well, which might become a second vow... but I didn't want to bite off more than I could chew...
