Since the days of the 2nd Founding, bonds of brotherhood have linked the Chapters of the Adeptus Astartes, eventually leading to the establishment of the Legio Bolter & Chainsword. In the thousands of years of the Legio's existence, many battle-brothers have earned their place in the Liber Honorum. Alongside these heroes, many other servants of the Imperium have stood shoulder to shoulder with the Adeptus Astartes in service to Mankind. Countless are the foes that these heroes of the Imperium have fought, most hated of which have been the renegades and traitors who have turned their backs upon the Emperor's Will and fallen to the Fell Powers.
The Legio Bolter & Chainsword needs you!
Hero of the Legio Bolter & Chainsword - This is a Space Marine that serves with the Legio Bolter & Chainsword at some point. The model might be painted as if prior to serving (i.e., pure Space Marine from his parent Chapter - no Legio B&C markings), currently serving with the Legio or a veteran of the Legio that has returned to his parent Chapter (i.e., normal parent Chapter livery, but with Legio B&C markings somewhere), or as a permanent member on the Mentor cadres (i.e., in Legio B&C colors with their parent Chapter markings). These distinctions can be found here and here. Bonus points will be awarded if an honour shield is submitted.
Ally of the Legio Bolter & Chainsword - This is some other model from a Forces of the Imperium faction. The model should be portrayed as it was at a time when the ally fought alongside battle-brothers of the Legio Bolter & Chainsword.
Enemy of the Legio Bolter & Chainsword - This is some model from a Chaos faction (Chaos Space Marines, Chaos Daemons, Lost and the Damned). There is no "anti-Legio" or similar Chaos equivalent, but the Red Corsairs of Huron Blackheart are a comparable force that the Legio has confronted on multiple occasions.
The intent is that your model should be a character type of model, whether a character for standard Warhammer 40,000 (e.g., an HQ character, a squad leader, or similar) or a kill team Leader (either Shadow War: Armageddon or Kill Team games). Dreadnoughts are acceptable, but not other vehicles such as Imperial Knights. If in doubt, ask.
Dumb questions get a power finger poke in the eye (Kurgan is hogging the power mackerel).
At least one image of your finished miniature in a file type that can be posted here at the Bolter & Chainsword (preferably .png or .jpg). Image should be no larger than 1 MB in size. Miniature should fill 75% of the vertical space (please crop your image(s) to reduce file size).
Name of character, as well as their parent organization.
A brief description of the character and their actions with the Legio Bolter & Chainsword (at least 300 words, but no more than 3,000 words). A Space Marine's background should focus on their service with the Legio; an ally's background should focus on the event(s) during which they fought alongside battle-brothers of the Legio; an enemy's background should focus on the event(s) during which they fought against the Legio.
Amplifying guidance/advice can be found here.
One entry per member (so make it a good one).
Completed submissions should be e-mailed to Brother Tyler at:

Once the results are announced, you can post full information, WIPs, etc. about your minis for everyone to comment on.
The winners will have eternal glory. And maybe some special prizes that will be announced later.
