Oh damn I missed that difference despite reading it a few times word for word lol


Disclaimer:

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.

 

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

ETL VI is conveniently starting right when I'm starting to paint my first army in 12 years. We'll see how much I can finish painting before May 1st but as of today I've got all these models ready for painting:

 

3 Riptides

6 XV15 Stealth Battlesuits

3 XV25 Stealth Battlesuits

9 XV8 Crisis Battlesuits

1 XV88 Broadside Battlesuit

40 Fire Warriors

10 Pathfinders

20 Kroot

5 Vespid

30 Drones

3 Devilfish

1 Hammerhead

1 Ethereal

1 Kroot Shaper

 

The painting's gone pretty slow so far (I'm roughly 30 Fire Warriors in), but I think I'm starting to get the hang of it. I'm looking forward to ETL giving me an actual deadline to get this army finished and not just assembled/primed.

 

Even if we are stuck working together with the flithy Greenskins dry.png

Go for it - just make sure you complete any models you vow or you will forfeit any you completed...

Yep. Staying conservative on my vows when I'm in high gear towards the end of summer will be the tricky part here!

Thank you for making it May 1st, only 8 more days!

Also, I hope you got my Horus Heresy reference Elmo, I’ve been on a HH binge as of late.

Well, there is word of difference, namely Faction vs. Forum. biggrin.png
 
The Faction is Xenos. That means that the performance of all Xenos Forums will be added together to work out the performance of the Xenos Faction which will be compared to the other 4 Factions of the ETL (Adeptus Astartes, IFOR, Realm of Chaos and AoD). The winning Faction will be ETL VI Magister.
 
However, the Forum that beats ALL other individual Forums (20 in total) will become Exercitus Dominus!

 
 

Exactly! And here's the deal:
 
All Xenos are in the same Factions so you need all of them to do well in order for Xenos to become ETL VI Magister, and in that sense you are all allies.


So what you're saying is that all of the Xenos factions will be working together for the *ahem* greater good? msn-wink.gif

I prefer to think that bolt weapons do, in fact, use cased ammunition - mostly for the reasons you state. It looks cool. They jingle when they hit hard ground. It's like the Emperor's wind chimes.

Yeah, in a way... :D

Yet each Xenos Forum will have to compete with every other Xenos Forum for supremacy within the Xenos Faction! :) And of course all Forouns compete against all other Forums across the board! :)

I'll pledge when it officially starts, but I gotta finish up this semester at college first. SO I probably wont start on this stuff until a week after the official start

The legs turned up today so the bits are all here for the vows ;)

I still haven’t ordered my Kroot yet but I have my Commander built and ready.
I’ll probably paint some Drones before ETL starts just to maintain the momentum on my T’au.

Only a couple of days to go before the start... Prep your engines ;)

 

I will be initially vowing 2 units of 3 old style XV8s and will be working out points later (they are magnetised so I can use expensive weapon choices ;) )

I expect them to take 2-3 weeks as there are loads of bank holidays coming up in the next few weeks and that means that the wife will have things planned for me to do :(
