+++ THE CALL TO ARMS HAS BEEN MADE...
WILL THE SONS OF CORAX ANSWER? +++
In the wake of the Storm of Chaos breaking across the breadth of the Imperium, Rouboute Guilliman has called the Indomitus Crusade to take the fight to the enemy wherever they rear their heads.
Guilliman's first request for aid has been sent out to all the first founding Chapters demanding they and their successors join the crusade at full chapter strength. With the Raven Guard heavily committed across the Damocles Warzone and the losses incurred during the fall of Cadia and during the Crusade to bring Guilliman to Holy Terra, the Raven Guard have called upon all the Sons of Corax to muster. Between them they can achieve a Chapter strength force and gift Guilliman's crusade the skills of the 'Hidden Hands of the Emperor'.
"Victorus aut Mortis"
As a temporary replacement for ETL, to continue the momentum of the 'Talons Reach' event and to celebrate the coming of 8th Edition, the Raven Guard Forum is Hosting the 'Hidden Hands of the Emperor' challenge.
The challenge is open to the Raven Guard (40K & 30K) and all successor chapters, both known and created by you and will run from the 15th of June through to the 15th of September.
The rules are simple: vow to paint any unit/units you'd like for your army. Unlike the ETL, as we are not competing against other forums, you can vow allies, as long as they are Imperial e.g. Inquisitor, Elysians etc.
Each vow should be for the same unit type, so, if I want to vow a tactical squad and a scout squad, then you make 1 vow but declare both troop types. There is no limit to the number of vows you can make during the challenge. A vow must be completed before making another vow.
Each Vow should be:
I, (name), for the (Chapter name), vow to complete (model/models) by 11:59 PM on September 15, 2017.
Each vow should be accompanied by a before photo, showing the model/models in their pre-painted state (under coated is fine) (with the exception of the Race Bannon bonus, see below). Upon completion, post a photo of the completed model(s). More than one angle would be nice, but not required.
It is preferred the quality be at least for table-top use with three different colors used (washes do not count).
The progress will be updated every few days and will also include a running total of our total forces, cheering milestones as we hit them e.g. Company strength.
All participants can use the 'Oath Marker' below in their signatures to let everyone know that they are taking part:
Upon completion of the event all participants will receive a personal banner with a 'pip' awarded for each troop type completed (this may be adjusted if different titles are used in 8th):
- Fast Attack
- Heavy Support
If a participant manages to complete a vow for each of the above, the Aquilla on the banner will also be 'lit'.
There will also be three bonus awards available during the challenge:
- Race Bannon Challenge - complete a model to represent our hard working Raven Guard moderator, it can be a character or a rank an file trooper. I know a few have done this already so rather than you making another one, you can post your completed Race. (easy win for those who have done one before).
If a participant completes the Race Bannon Challenge a Laurel Wreath will be added to the unit type 'pip' i.e. If a Sternguard Veteran Sergeant is modeled as Race, the Laurel will appear around the Elites 'pip' on the Banner.
- Flyer Challenge - A bonus 'Pip' will be awarded for those participants who vow and complete a Flyer choice, though this is not required to 'light' the Aquilla.
- Lord of War Challenge - A bonus 'Pip' will be awarded for those participants who vow and complete a Lord of War choice, though this is not required to 'light' the Aquilla.
So get your brushes ready......the Hidden Hands of the Emperor ready for WAR!
