Sons of Dorn,

The Eye of Terror has opened yet again. Tzeentch's daemonic legions, the treacherous Thousand Sons, and even their twisted Daemon-Primarch Magnus, have emerged from the Warp and are causing untold destruction to the worlds around Cadia. The Imperial Fists and their successors, stalwart defenders of the Imperium and its people, the Emperor's Praetorians, must push back this tide of horrors and liberate as many Imperial worlds as they can.

Round up your neophytes, fire up your forges, arm your battle-brothers!

The time of ending is near and the sons of Dorn shall not be found wanting...

 
 

Start: Wednesday 1st March
End: Friday 31st March @ 23:59 GMT/UTC

How it works:

1) You look at your collection and pick at least one model to paint. The selected models can be assembled, undercoated and/or basecoated with their main colour. No more. If unsure, ask me. I reserve the right to disqualify models which do not stick to this rule.

2) Take a picture of these models, upload it to an online gallery (preferably B&C), and post it in this thread along with a vow stating the number of models to complete by the 31st March and any other details you deem to be relevant (be creative). Once you've made your vow, no changes to it can be made unless I approve those changes (so send me a PM if you need to change something).

3) Paint the models to at least a basic, three-colour standard within the given timeframe (no obligation to base the models but highly encouraged). The colour scheme must be either from the Imperial Fists Chapter/Legion, an official successor, a DIY successor, or the Deathwatch Chapter (but with one shoulder pad painted in the colours of a son of Dorn). No other Chapters shall be allowed.

4) Once finished, take the best pictures you possibly can, upload them, and post them here for all to see.
 
5) If you have completed your vow, make a second/third/fourth/fifth/sixth/seventh/eighth/ninth/etc vow and continue to bring glory to yourself!
 
6) Patiently wait the end of the event and the publication of the end results.

7) During the whole while, have fun!

Last but not least, if you have any questions, feel free to ask them here or to PM me!

Now, let us prepare for war and give Chaos a good kick in the teeth. devil.gif

Just on the bases, I've painted a set of sector imperialis bases a while ago so I'd have them all done and out of the way. Can I use them for this challenge or will they need to be at the same painting stage as the model?

My vow has 4 components, Templar Brethren Squad (6 marines), Sternguard Squad (7 marines), Vanguard Squad (6 marines) and Sigismund, so 1 part per week with a little extra at the end! All primed grey and ready to go.

 

Unfortunately my Vanguard Squad is already short 1 marine  and is down to 6 due to a foul xenos plot involving a superglue spill!

And there would be a picture of said paint-less techmarine uploaded if I wasn't still without power after last night's storm. Will post as soon as the power company works their way up my mountain.

Nope. It is up to people to come up with whatever wording they think is suitable for their vow. Makes a nice (though not permanent) change , I think. thumbsup.gif

Alright, I'm in! 

 

I, Augustus b'Raass, vow on the honour of the Emperor, Dorn and my humble self to paint one ten-man squad of Assault Marines with two flamers and a veteran sergeant armed with an eviscerator and meltabombs, and a ten-man squad of Devastators with four Grav-Cannons and grav amps, for a total of 460 points during this event. Should I fail, I swear to wear a hair shirt for at least 30 minutes on April Fools. 

 

Here's a collection of WiP shots taken of each marine in both squads:

Hidden Content

 

As you see, except for two, these guys have all been named by fellow frater. My entire Imperial Fists army in fact has been named by frater from the B&C, which to me is an inspiration and motivation, and a way to show thanks for that to everyone in the B&C that shares their thoughts and ideas here on the forum.

 

Now, two of the assault squad (a flamer weapon specialist and a sword brother) and eight of the devastator squad (all except the sergeant and vexilarius) remain unnamed. And where better to get names for Imperial Fists than in an event dedicated to our favourite chapter/legion?

So please, if anyone wants to claim a brother, all you have to do is comment in this thread or in my WiP with a claim on a specific marine, and a name, and I'll induct it in this list (and in this master list).

 

As for naming conventions, here's my thoughts on that:

Hidden Content

 

Here's the open slots:

 

XIV Assault Squad 

Weapon Specialist (Flamer) - 

 

XII Devastator Squad 

Vexillarius -

Heavy Weapon Specialist (Grav Cannon) -
Heavy Weapon Specialist (Grav Cannon) -
Battle Brother -

Vexillarius -

Thanks!

 

And good luck to all participating frater thumbsup.gifbiggrin.png

(I'll edit the pictures for the devastators in when I complete them.)

That is such a cool idea.

 

The sword brother of XIV Assault Squad is hereby named Tolbe Mendell.

 

In the spirit of brotherhood, I'd be honoured if you'd name my marine. (he is in MkII armour in my photo upthread)

 

He is the sergeant of I squad, VII Company, Imperial Fists.
