Sort of.

 

I'm preparing the presentation of the submissions. It was an idea that occurred to me after the challenge ended. I should have them ready this weekend or early next week.

No progress unfortunately. I sent an e-mail to all of the entrants with an explanation (of sorts) and a request.

Back in June we asked members to submit images and background for their Legio characters. We received a number of submissions from members, so now it's time for you to pick your favorite.
 
The Legio battle-brothers shown in the images were part of a detachment deployed to Demaras Tertius. Each was assigned a code name and the images below are labeled with those code names (code names are above images).
 
ACHILLES

Please pick your favorite, by whatever criteria you decide to use.
 
Polling will last through 31 October, after which the members' favorite will be announced (along with some other things related to this challenge).

I agree with Thørn some bloody good work there. I was tied between Jason and Achillies but Achillies has to take it as I am a sucker for battle damage and weathering.

Excellent submissions guys and gals! An interesting variety of loadouts and poses too, which sums up the diversity of this place perfectly. I just wish there were some more entrants, maybe next time. smile.png
 

<EDIT>

 

Gah, I missed out on this. :l

 

 
No harm in making one anyway to add to the ranks of Legio personas people have submitted over the years. msn-wink.gif Maybe do one as a new IFE V vow.

By the throne, some of those are amazing. blink.png

That sword on Perseus, in particular, is incredible.

Oh, and Jason's honour shield - very nice indeed!

 

Can't decide where to cast my vote - this will take some serious deliberation!

 

 

They'd all make one heck of a squad though! thumbsup.gif

 

I'm loving the codenames, as an aside.

Well, providing submissions is an ongoing effort. I suppose I need to get the Legio B&C entry spruced up a little to provide a place for everyone.
 

I'm loving the codenames, as an aside.

Well, some of the submissions made it fairly obvious who the member was; and I didn't want anyone to vote for or against a model based on the member, so I had to come up with some codenames. My original plan was to use the names of Trojans killed by Achilles in the Iliad, but I figured no one wanted to be named for the red shirts. msn-wink.gif

First, congratulations and appreciation to all of the members that submitted miniatures for the challenge. The reward for submitting a miniature is the inclusion of that character's parent Chapter in the semi-official Legio Bolter & Chainsword kill team for the Shadow War: Zombie Apocalypse campaign pack.

There can be only one winner, though, and by popular acclaim, that honor goes to...

Brother Kaizer, code name "Achilles," submitted by Kizzdougs. Congratulations to Kizzdougs.

The reward for being the winner is the honor of the Shadow War: Zombie Apocalypse kill team being led by a sergeant from his character's parent Chapter (which, given the fact that he's a Black Shield, makes things interesting). He will also be receiving a Bolter & Chainsword patch and a custom deck of cards.
 

gallery_26_548_93419.jpg


An honorable mention goes to Brother Adlai, code name "Jason," submitted by NovemberIX for the inclusion of an honour shield.

The reward for this is that his character will be the second-in-command of the Shadow War: Zombie Apocalypse kill team, leading elements of the kill team in certain scenarios. He will also be receiving a Bolter & Chainsword patch.

Dossiers on each of the entries will be posted soon (once I have each entrant's go-ahead).

I was going to post the images and information on all of the submissions, but I don't deserve the likes (the entrants deserve those). So I'm going to let each of the members that submitted a mini post the images and background for their Legio B&C battle-brothers (you can give those post likes).
 

gallery_26_6416_686.png


The Chronicles of the Legio Bolter & Chainsword is an ongoing challenge, however. We'd love to see members submit images and background for their Adeptus Astartes battle-brothers that have fought under the banner of the Legio Bolter & Chainsword. All you have to do is reply here with the images/information about your Legio battle-brother.

A worthy winner Kizzdougs out of some great entries! Big well done! Love the knee pad especially and he has that weathered look I love :tu:

As for me, I am really happy with 2nd as I have been (and will be for a bit longer, unfortunately!) out of the hobby for a while. Really enjoyable challenge, thanks Brother Tyler for organising.

A well deserved congratulations to Kizzdougs for his winning entry, the battle damage and kitbashing was superb on that one. As I said in my earlier post, the sheer variety and high quality of the modelling and painting in the submissions really did help to display the diversity of the board and our styles.

 

Might as well claim which one was mine as we wait for the dossiers, the given codename of my model was "Theseus":

 

med_gallery_26154_13893_140935.jpg

 

med_gallery_26154_13893_163772.jpg

 

med_gallery_26154_13893_179715.jpg

 

I decided to go down the classical route of using a Bolter and Chainsword loadout, using the Deathwatch kit I have (and intend to use to make a 10-man Legio squad in the future) I hadn't painted properly either for around a year so it was nice doing this challenge to restart my hobby a little and challenge with the art of edge highlighting black and painting red. I'd say it's a good improvement over my last Legio miniature I did 5 years ago... And for those of the Liber persuasion and have been there for many a year, I decided to finally make the Liber Heraldry Department emblem exist in painted form on my Legio mini's leg. ;)

 

Once again, congrats Kizzdougs and to my fellow entrants on a job well done. I look forwards to seeing more Legio minis in the future from everyone else, hopefully. smile.png

First off, Congrats to Kizzdougs on his superb entry! Again, kudos to everyone on the wide range of entries! Like brother Tyler said, Jason was my entry, the image below links to a more in depth post about where I sourced all the various parts since Adlai is just one giant kitbash. I look forward to the profiles and to see what inspired everyone's design choices

Congrats to Kizzdougs, a well-earned victory there brother! biggrin.png

My entrant was codenamed "Heracles", a codename which I can guarantee is going to make it into his personal history as soon as I figure out how to make it fit. laugh.png

Perhaps appropriately, he's from my DIY Chapter the White Hawks, who love a good test of skill. happy.png
Here's another shot of the chap himself, who was modelled in the middle of calling out a challenge to single combat:

I'm hyped for the dossiers, for certain.
I need to know if these marines could have been a squad in the Legio, for one thing - maybe that can be where these codenames come from.ph34r.png
