Welcome to ETL V and the Adeptus Mechanicus Strategium! Here is the home for those who want to participate in the ETL putting their weight behind the mighty engines of the Mechanicum of Mars! Participants may use Codex Skitarii and Codex Cult Mechanicus as well as any Mechanicum entry from any Forge World book (Horus Heresy or otherwise).
On top of that the Mechanicum will have the full backing of the Imperial armies and agencies, so expect the support of the mighty Astra Militarum, the Adepta Sororitas, the Inquisition and its agents and of course the purest of soul, the Grey Knights. All those forums will stand as one to face their rivals, and win the day!
 
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 a link to the update of the entire event 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:

So with no further ado, let’s begin!

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!
 

Power Armour (including artificer variants) Infantry
Terminator Infantry
Human Infantry
Other Infantry
 
Jump Infantry
Beast/Cavalry
Bike
 
Monstrous Creature
Gargantuan Creature
 
Tank
Superheavy Tank
Walker

Progress report.

 

Thanks to very favorable humidity, Da Boyz were able to get out for a nice gloss coat before they start taking their war paint.

Oh, and they tried to be sneaky and distract me from a non-ETL thing they're working on, but to no avail...

Currently not taking decal commissions. Decal sheet design service available via PM or Carlson's College of Arms and Graffiti. Self-print decal sheet questions? See Ye Olde Decal Project for more information. Also, see Winterdyne's Applying Waterslide Decals tutorial - it's essential! Need special models, bits, or terrain? See +++The Forges of Mars+++.
