ETL_2016_Poster_06_Imperium.jpg

 
Welcome to ETL V and the Astra Militarum Strategium! Here is the home for those who want to participate in the ETL putting their weight behind the Codex: Astra Militarum and Militarum Tempestus! And keep in mind that the Imperial Guard do not fight alone! They have the full backing of other Imperial Forces, so expect the support of the devout Adepta Sororitas, the purest of soul Grey Knights, the mighty Mechanicum of Mars and of course the Inquisition. All those forums will stand as one to face their rivals, Loyalists and Traitors alike!
 
Please note that, apart from the two Codices mentioned above, you can also use units from the following lists:

  • Elysian Drop Troops Army List from Imperial Armour Volume 3 – The Taros Campaign (2nd Ed.)
  • Detachment D-99 Elysian Drop troop Veterans from Imperial Armour Volume 4 – The Amphelion Project
  • DKoK Siege Regiment from Imperial Armour – The Siege of Vraks
  • Elysian Drop Troop Army List from Imperial Armour Volume 8 – Raid on Kastorel Novem
  • DKoK Assault Brigade Army from Imperial Armour Volume 12 – The Fall of Orpheus

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 will start slow due to a hectic real life. 

I, Sviar, rise to the challenge of E TENEBRAE LUX and vow to complete 2 priests on or before August 15th, 2016. Success will bring eternal glory to the Sviars worlds and failure will doom me to bear the Badge of the Oathbreaker until the year-end 

Sicne there are no official GW minis, I choose these two because the look like priests to me. So I´m waiting for the good Captains approval before I start to paint. Points cost 50.

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

Jump Infantry
Beast/Cavalry

We will stride forth victorious through the shattered gates of their fortress, holding high aloft the defiled corpse of their rotting god as our prize.

Indeed! 

 

It's the first completion of this year's ETL, so first blood goes to the Guard! Congratulations HLVW - you are a true Hero of the Imperium!!! 

 

Now will your comrades follow on, on your breakthrough? What we need here is numbers - you Guard people should understand that better than anybody!

 

So let's see participation levels rise and follow HLVW's example of early completions! 

 

So HLVW, refill?

 

 

UPDATED TO THIS POINT!
