I vow 5 terminators and a 5 man vanguard in the indomitable green of the Subjugators. In this picture you will see the 5 terminators I still owe to the vow and the 5 man Vanguard that is completed.  Additionally, if I have time I will through in a 10 man tactical squad but I will not make that an official vow.....it will be as a bonus if I can get them done in time.

@ jannisary: Cheers, buddy! Tolbe Mendell is hereby added to the registry!

Anyone up to name the second flamer and last nameless marine in XIV Assault Squad?

I had a great day of painting: First half of the assault squad finished. More pics, of individual members, from multiple angles, here in my wipthumbsup.gif

Well I finished painting my Marshal yesterday even if I wasn't happy with how my attempts at indoor priming and greenstuffing went I still liked the learning experience and hope to begin honing my craft for my next set of models. Hopefully everyone else doesn't have my problems and brings greater glory to their chapters and themselves. Onwards Brothers!

I've just bought some mkiii from eBay and some shields from forge world as a first foray into the fists (not arrived yet so no pic) so:

I vow at least three breachers in heresy colours (more depending on how long the shields take to get here)

Which shields did you get? The seperate IF shields you can buy from FW are designed for the Cataphractii terminators - not for MkIII marines!

I've got a couple of the boarding shield set with 6 shields in - I've three left over from another project which is why that's my minimum vow!

Edit: tried to quote - sorry this was my first post.

1st vow complete!

And be he never so mighty, what marine could hope to prevail over the traitor and the alien without his battle brothers by his side?

 

 

med_gallery_96854_12937_840788.jpg

 

 

I, janissary, vow that these four marines will stand at their brother-sergeant's side.

May Rogal Dorn judge me harshly if I fail.

 

 

EDIT: I further vow that my next photo will be less rubbish.

Brother and sisters, apologies for my absence these past few days. Real life is relentless in its beating and unfortunately I have had to deal with other matters which take precedence over keeping an eye on the B&C and this event.

 

I have however found a bit of free time this morning so I'll make sure I update the participants list (we already have a couple of completions from what I have seen!).

 

In any case, it's great to see people motivated to participate in this! Keep up the good work! thumbsup.gif

Well you guys have finally motivated me. I joined this forum in 2006. The last time i painted a model was 2 years BEFORE that.

I have been building up a force and thought I would wait to paint until the ETL started up, but after seeing this going on in this wonderful sub, i went out and bought ~$200 in paint and supplies, and will be painting my first models in 13 years...

I, coldfyre, proud member of the Tormentors chapter of Astartes, 26th Founding sons of Dorn, vow to paint and deploy the five men of Tactical Terminator Squad Cyprus, later than the last day of March (gulp). Success shall aid in our efforts against the Black Crusade. In failure, I shall take the largest power sword available and jam it right in my eyeballs.

(Note: these were battle for vedros painted up as UM when i bought them on ebay, hence the blue. I shall finish my conversion work and paint them in the slate scheme of the Tormentors)
