ANNOUNCEMENT

 

A BnC event RETURNS July 1st

Like its first incarnation, Augustus' Arena is a Bolter & Chainsword event wherein Frater challenge each other in brotherly fashion. The only difference with the 2015 event is that August Arena II will see true 1vs1 challenges. A 'challenge' between two frater should be understood as a team-up of two frater, who promise each other to build and paint a similar unit or single miniature you they want to finish, and to be supportive of the other's process. Both challengers paint their miniatures to the best of their ability before a self-set deadline, with encouragement and positive, constructive feedback from their ‘rival’ challenger.

As such, the event is set up to create a positive experience for the challengers, and is meant to push frater to the best of their abilities, so that in the end of the event, they have a sublime miniature that reflects their utmost. 

 

The idea is to challenge fellow Frater to build, paint and base a single unit -be it a single miniature or a group of miniatures that together create a unit-, that is befitting their army, before one of two deadlines, and to stimulate and inspire your fellow Frater to build units they want to build. 

 

Challengers act as sponsors to the Frater with whom they share a challenge, offering encouragement, praise, and constructive feedback on their progress and completion. To stimulate Frater to really think about what their brother Frater would like to paint, there is no penalty to declining a challenge. In effect, the challenger-challenged relationship is a kind of buddy system. 

 

This thread

is an announcement thread to garner attention to the event.
is not a sign-up thread. However you can meet other interested frater here, and already gauge whom to challenge, or which units to build.

is not te event thread proper. The Event thread proper will be opened in the Forge's + Works In Progress + on July 1st, 2017. 

 

Challenges

Can only be made and accepted in the event thread proper, which, again, will be up July 1st. Patience! smile.png

 
Basic rules 
  • Frater can issue or accept only a single challenge per round.
  • There will be two ‘rounds’ in the Arena. Participants should find another frater to challenge in the second round.
  • The first round of the challenge runs from July 1st to July 31st. First Round Challenges can be issued until July 9th.
  • The second round of the challenge runs from August 1st to July 31st. Second Round Challenges can be issued until August 6th
  • Challenges issued and accepted should be posted in this thread using below-mentioned formats.
  • Challengers should agree on the unit category they wish their challenge to be about - see categories.
  • Each participant shall post at least three pictures: one pre build, one final WIP, and one picture of their completed entry.
  • If one of the challengers completes the challenge within the deadline, they are free to issue/accept further challenges
  • There is no penalty to declining a challenge
  • The event finishes on the date of the last deadline, namely midnight CET on August 31st 2017.

Categories

The units that challengers use should be of similar categories, and ideally (though this should not be applied too strictly) of the same points. Picture that the units you and your challenge buddy will complete during the event will duking it out when they’re finished. msn-wink.gif As such, a mutual challengers should pick a category from which to challenge. These are categories based on 7th edition rules, as I am as of yet not familiar enough with 8th's rules to make a clear categorization.

  • Character on foot 
  • Mounted Character (bike, jetbike, steeds, cavalry, etc…)
  • Unit of Infantry  (Infantry, Jump infantry, Jet pack infantry, minimum size 5)
  • Unit of bikes, jetbikes, cavalry, steeds, beasts (minimum unit size 3)
  • Monstrous Creatures (Flying Monstrous Creatures, Monstrous Creatures - but actual monsters, no mechanical constructs)
  • Walkers (including mechanical constructs that were ruled to be Monstrous Creatures in 7th)
  • Tanks
  • Flyers
  • Skimmers
  • Chariots

Interested?

If you're interested in joining this event and wish to display your willingness to challenge and be challenged, and portray the timezone (30K or 40K) you wish your challenge to be in, as well as your faction) you can put one of the following banners in your siggy. Please mind the 990x100 pixel size restrictions for signatures. 

 

Dark Imperium (Renegades and Imperials)

Full rules will be revealed in the actual event thread, which will start July 1st.

FAQ

 

Can xenos play too?

Of course! If anything, it'd be awesome to see two mortal enemies facing off!

 

 

So ... I understand challenges will be negotiated on or after July 1? Or is it acceptable to nut something out before that too? 

 

You're more than welcome to find a partner, and sort out the items you'll be doing, but you shouldn't start until the Official Thread is open and you've officially challenged/been challenged.

I couldn't have said it better myself. thumbsup.gif

I've been hoping I'd see this pop up again, it's nice to have a quality over quantity challenge every once in a while ;)

Can I challenge anybody? For example: I challenger Kurgan the Lurker to paint a mini of a Capt. In Gravis Armor.

Oft course he does not have to accept, but could a challenge look that way vor shot I communicate via pm first before issue a challenge?

Open for Comissions, just PM me. The Wardens of Light were like golden blades, cutting down their enemies scarring the darkness.

@ Sagentus: Cheers, buddy! Welcome aboard! If you're so inclined, please add the appropriate 'Bring it on!'-banner in our siggy!

 

@ Atia: Oooh I'd love to challegne you, but already have something going with LC Eidolon... If you're so inclined, please add the appropriate 'Bring it on!'-banner in our siggy!

 

@ BCK: YES! If you're so inclined, please add the appropriate 'Bring it on!'-banner in our siggy!

 

@ The Psycho: Indeed, buddy! If you're so inclined, please add the appropriate 'Bring it on!'-banner in our siggy!

@ lionofjudah: Yay! Cool that you're in too! If you're so inclined, please add the appropriate 'Bring it on!'-banner in our siggy!

@ MikhalLeNoir: You can challenge anybody, but we only start with actual challenges when the event proper starts, on July 1st. There's nothing stopping you from contacting people prior to that via PM to rearrange challenges, though :) Also, if you're so inclined, please add the appropriate 'Bring it on!'-banner in our siggy!

 

@ BCK3: exactly right :)

This sounds ace, I'm definitely in for this. 


Maybe you could model TWC-sized "were-templars" who's inner Templar took over in the fury of battle transforming them into a giant half man - half templar?

You carry the Emperor's will as your torch, with it destroy the shadows.

Accept all challenges, no matter the odds.

Suffer not the Heretic to live.

Abhor the Typo.

Sure, why not. I'm horrible at actually finishing these things, but maybe with the new edition at hand it'll kick start me a bit.

@ Grotsmasha: Indeed, where is that Assault Ram?? Good of you to bring it back up smile.png Also thanks for wearing the banner smile.png

 

@ Ashenwyte: Great! Welcome aboard!  If you're so inclined, please add the appropriate 'Bring it on!'-banner in our siggy!

 

@ BCK: INDEED! tongue.pngmsn-wink.gif

 

@ Dosjetka: Hurray! Xenos should be purged and have no business in any honor duel. msn-wink.gif Thanks for donning the banner!

 

@ rednekkboss! Cool! This time, you'll have to finish! msn-wink.gif Cheers for the banner. smile.png

 

EDIT: MAJOR REVELATION! I've just learned that the B&C now allows XENOS! This is awesome news IMO, and I'm super happy to see new armies on the boards (and start some myself). :)

As long as the challenge is reasonable, I will definitely put my best foot forward. Anything involving a large number of minis will probably be crippled by my 2 jobs and the summer "honey do " list. ;)

Well the challenge is determined by you and your challenger, so there's a lot of control on that. :)

Oi! I thought you and I were going at it?
