T
he Blood Angels and their Successors are known throughout the Imperium as master artisans, be it our ability to craft anything from our exquisitely displayed banners, unique Mk IV armour or our iconic Glaive Encarmines made from the finest Angel's steel. Our Techmarines have the temerity to tinker with STC constructs permitting them to modify what they see fit, with the most famous being the reverse engineering of the Lucifer pattern engines on to not only the humble Rhino chassis-based vehicles but the mighty Land Raider itself. And yet, my brothers, I am troubled.

 
Despite our numbers holding strong, our rivals attempt to usurp our rightful place at the pinnacle of model and painting design. As the Time of Ending approaches, it is now, more than ever before, that we must hold strong and prepare for the oncoming storm. With that in mind, show me what you can do. Prove to me that anyone from our perspicacious veterans through to the greenest aspirant has the knack for the art of kitbashing. 
 
You have one month to get your bits ready for as many BA IC kitbashes* as you wish. Just make sure that your completions participate in your ETL pledge(s) when the time comes.
 
 

6th February 2017

Painted pieces are eligible to be used, however, that doesn't mean your model will be legal for the event because it may not meet the criteria.

I think I speak for all of us that we look forward to what you come up with.

I would rather they were new but if you already have something that meets the event's criteria and is predominantly unpainted then I don't see why it can't be entered.

The event will last two months and you can enter as often as you wish.

They will be posted up when the event goes live on the 6th February. However, they won't be too dissimilar to the classic Grotsmasha Conversion Challenges over in The Forge sub-forum.

For example, here's the Librarian event:

Alright so ...for Aphael, only the head is painted (see my avatar).  Here is the rest of him - I also have 2 "DC Chaplains" that are just kitbashes that I suppose I could paint next if I can't enter Aphael. :

God dammit you. I was planning on a 100% kitbashed Knight of Blood army before Traitor Legions got released. I still plan to do them but not this year anymore. xD

Doesn't mean you can't knock something together for the event should you wish. Think of the pretty signature badges and the eternal glory should you win!

Interesting. Can these guys be made from a legal choice in our Codex?

In an ideal world, the Frater would use this event to build a model/models and then use the ETL to paint it (thus it must be a legal Codex choice...)

Hmmm... So the idea is no more than 25% of the model can come from the same plastic kit or single model blister? Do I have that right?

Just thinking I got so many metal miniatures, but which ones do I want to take the hobby saw to.

Pretty much, with bikes likely being an exception for obvious reasons. I recall people using metal for GM's events and it's not for the faint of heart...

With the plethora of plastic and resin parts at our disposal these days (and that's just GW), we should all be able to knock together something decent :)

Indeed! Basically since I only play them at home I houserule special rules in for narrative gameplay, but otherwise they are standard captain stats or count as Dante stats. For the most part the house rule special rules would be picking a warlord trait based on their table top gameplay in the past (so a character who was previously not a warlord may get Red Rampage if promoted to a warlord position after having charged in single handedly and slaughtered a whole squad). For official gameplay I would play them as pure count as or as the rules say.

Like Corvo would be a captain with whatever loadouts the rules allow.

Hmm I may put off making my Captain until this shows up then! Or alternatively I'm sure I can throw something together!

Looking forward to it :) I expect Captains will be a popular choice given their versatility.

Jolemai- On reflection my currently planned Captain may not fit the brief as a large chunk of it will be based off the legion preator model. Oh well, I'll just have to raid my bits box and make another one!
