I don't remember the specifics, but there is a benefit to a Jump pack.

  • Jump packs give a +1 to initiative rolls to see who goes first.
  • If one model has 2 different CC weapons, the attacks will be split evenly between both or at user's discretion upon submitting entry.
The Fight
All normal 40k rules apply. Contestants start 18" from each other.  To see who goes first a D6 and added the characters Initiative. The model going first will get to move, shoot and assault. The model being assaulted can overwatch as normal.

However if assault fails the model that overwatched can't shoot on his shooting phase. Combats will be resolved just as a normal 40K combat until one model is left with 0 wounds.

So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

gallery_58096_14830_1879.jpg

 

Diabocca grunted a subvocal command to his vox pick up that crackled into life.

 

"My Lord, they are here...".

 

The shadowy figure lingered in the deepest darkness of the antechamber as the contestants gathered with their entourages, invisible to all, save for the occasional glint of reflected torchlight on his polished deathmask, the rasping of metallic feathers reacting to his micro movements the only sound he made. He studied their movements, reading each warrior as they interacted. Some with swagger, more reserved. He saw the gene-wrought features of his father in each of their faces, each expressed in different ways. Some, the noble features of Azkellon, others had mouths seemingly twisted in perpetual snarls echoing that savage Seth, scion of Amit. It was not long since they had been on Baal at the defence. They had been there when the bloodline of Sanguinius was almost extinguished, and they had been there at the triumph. Now, one hundred years later, they returned for glory, and to reignite their sense of kinship.

 

Diaboccia looked at the Champions in front of him, counting the Adeptus Primaris that made up their number, reflecting on the dwindling numbers of Adeptus Astartes that remained. Like it or not, they were the future. Guilliman's Future. Diabocca reopened the vox channel:

 

 "...and they look taller than the last lot"

 

His remark was met with a throaty chortle, and the channel clicked into silence...

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Two spots left folks. Are any of the accursed ETL oath breakers part of the Feast and have not finished their champion yet? Git 'er done!

 

All entrants that have completed their vows, please can you upload a photo of your completed, painted champion into the original entry post (linked in the OP) so I can start preparing their avatars for the bracket table. 

 

In the meantime, Curios, Silas, please feel free to enter a model - I'll add them to the reserve list as long as it's vowed and painted as part of Rage to Salvation (Coming soon, I think?). 

 

The final entrants to the feat will be confirmed in the wake of the paint fest. In the meantime, as the contestants size one another up in the antechamber, feel free to trash talk.

 

Cheers!

 

Xen

It had been a century since Calen last stood upon the home world of the Winged Father. His chapter had done so begrudgingly, though he was one of the youth that voted for the chapter to send aid to the summons of Dante. He was but a sergeant then, and so much had changed in the years that followed the horrors witnessed on Baal. So few of his brothers still lived; many like Calen himself did not compromise the ideals or savagery that Haldroth once held dear. In one sense it was a double edged sword. The Priests were gaining a stronger hold over the excess of violence amongst those of Haldroth's womb. The many Primaris Marines that bolstered their forces were from Baal. A time before the madness of the present. Some assimilated, some distanced themselves, it was a thin line walked by many. Though over the past years, the battle brothers had bonded, and the light that shown through was one of harmony and fraternity. Both Primaris and the originals were still in production on Haldroth, and her surrounding moons.

Still the price paid was dire. There was a need of soldiers, and the production of both fitted Haldroth, for the time being. These were the thoughts of the Third Captain. He was handsome in his features, his crown was covered with the brightest of blonde strands of hair. His eyes were that same cerulean gray as his Reclusiarch, a possible mutation from the gene seed. Calen's face was a wash of pale complexion, filled with the stature of heroes. That same fierce rage held at bay that earned him the name "Blood Hammer" left an aura of awe and greatness with each step he took forward.


His entourage consisted of five battle brothers. These were Calen's inner circle. Each was a partial piece to his War council that also came from his home world, Morandus.

First was his company champion Uriel, a fierce warrior, who wielded the sword Foebane. His loyalty to his chapter and to that of his captain was renowned. He was bitter only in the sense that Hazriel denied him the chance at glory against his fellow blood line. This was due in part to some mysterious objective Hazriel had given to his captain, for it must be Calen to complete this task.

The next two that came out were veterans from the Shield of Baal as well. Arus and Seraphim, both were just as fierce warriors as Uriel. Each made the stand upon the walls of Baal defending Calen as he raised 'Gravus' in what they thought to be their last battle. The horrors that spilled forth from the endless tides of the Leviathan menace, brought anxious memories back. Though they never showed such emotions, these were merely thoughts held privately.

Behind them came Favian, Calen's banner bearer. Though he did not fly the colors of the Third Company, he was its guardian and a part of Calen's war council. His demeanor showed he had seen thousands of battles. The studs in his forehead proved he may very well be the oldest of this group, and a paramount asset to Calen's tactical decisions.

Finally came Queran, the Sanguinary Priest and confidant to Calen. His was the spiritual guidance for ceremony and ritual that so many of the other chapters held in the highest regard. He showed the wherewithal to preach the teachings of Baal, and was instrumental in keeping the Rites of Blood. He was born on Haldroth and remembered the tasks of bringing grips to the savagery and barbarism once showed by the Swords of Haldroth.


Calen felt the nostalgia creep into his thoughts, as whispers from Battle-Brothers and menials of other chapters alike had heard tales of "The Blood Hammer" and his deeds. -Why did you ask me my lord?- thought Calen to himself. He knew the reason was to show continued fraternity, honor, and the like to both the line of Sanguinius and to the Carmine Blades, but it still tugged at his mind. He would rather be where he was needed in the war efforts, it just so happened that fate had brought him back to the home of the Winged Father.

As each of his men moved into place he saw the colors and banners of his lineage were already accommodated or were arriving just as he had.

If i had any painted during ETL, I would have entered a Plasma interceptor Sargent. 

 

That's the Sargent I think would have the most luck.

Brother sergeant Radek 1st Aggressor squad 3rd company

 

Wargear: Auto boltstorm Gauntlets, Fragstorm grenade launcher

 

Points = 37

8 re-rolls = 120

 

Total= 157 pts

 

Link to my ETL Vow:

http://www.bolterand...44#entry5135235

 

Brother Sgt Radek is fairly new to his command but has distinguished himself to be a steadfast leader. His most recent notable action was on the Forgeworld Zaprilia II against the endless Tyranids. Where he lead his squad into a vital choke point that was in danger of being overrun and held the breach for four days, Radek himself killing a Carnifex in close combat on the third day. Both of Radek's battle brothers died on the fourth day mere minutes before the contingent of Death Korps, that were dispatched to reinforce the PDF weeks before, arrived to dig in and take over the fight.

 

After hearing of the Feast of Blades, Radek joins to honor his fallen brothers

The avatar image and the white helmets point to the Carmine Blades.

 

"The Carmine Blades were not recognised as successors of the Blood Angels until late M41. Indeed, the Chapter were originally named the Swords of Haldroth after their feral recruiting world. They had long suffered from what they called the blood-curse, but had hidden their Flaw from prying eyes for fear of Inquisitorial sanction. Officially they were recorded as successors of the Ultramarines. It is unclear whether this came about as a result of an error within the Administratum, or an intentional ruse put in place by the Chapter’s leaders in ages past. Whatever the truth, the Chapter’s real heritage was revealed when High Chaplain Astorath was drawn instinctively to where the ‘cursed brothers’ were interred. On that day the fate of the Chapter was irrevocably changed, their true identity revealed to all.
Renamed the Carmine Blades, these successors have accepted the Blood Angels’ traditions only grudgingly. Their newly formed order of Sanguinary Priests still struggles to curb the worst excesses of the Chapter’s inherited warrior culture. Ritual scarification and the flaying of captured foes are still widespread problems. Still, the Carmine Blades have proved resilient and resourceful successors."

It occurs to me, looking at the current roster. We have 2 captains of the Blood Angels 1st Company. 

 

They even have almost identical loadouts.

 

They have to be put against each other.
