+++ASTRA MILITARUM OUTPOST+++

 

ETL_6_Poster_02_Forum_IMPERIUM_Militarum

 

Welcome to the Astra Militarum Outpost. Astra Militarum belongs to the “Forces of the Imperium (IFOR)” Faction.

 

HERE IS WHERE YOU MUST POST YOUR VOWS

 

Here you must also post your “before” and “after” pics of your vows as well as any WIP you may want to share. You may also use this thread to discuss the progress of the event with your fellow participants, exchange ideas, offer and receive modelling/painting advice and generally have some ETL–related fun!

Here you’ll be able to submit vows that include the following units: 

 

- Codex Astra Militarum: all units

   

Index Imperium 2:

  • All units from the Questor Imperialis list
  • All units from the Fortifications list

- Imperial Armour Index – Forces of the Astra Militarum:

  • All units with the Astra Militarum keyword
  • All units from the Questor Imperialis list
  • All units from the Adeptus Titanicus list

IMPORTANT NOTE: THE MIGHT OF THE IMPERIUM
As mentioned in the main rules, participants who pledge for Astra Militarum will also have the option to pledge units that correspond to any other IFOR Forum as well! However, the units pledged from other IFOR Forums may never be more than the units selected from the list above. 

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: ALWAYS USE THE LATEST PUBLICATION TO SELECT AND PRICE YOUR UNITS
This means that the Index lists are good until the Codex is released (in which case the Index list becomes obsolete and cannot be used by anyone). Also, FAQs that come in the wake of a particular Codex (or other publication) take precedence over the Codex (or other publication). Also, any PDF releases by either Games Workshop or Forge World are also admissible (even if experimental) until an official publication that contains them is released. 

Before you post you vow make sure you familiarise yourself with the ETL VI rules. You can find a link to the ETL VI rules below:

For my first ever vow I MrZakalwe rise to the challenge of E TENEBRAE LUX on the side of the Imperial Guard and vow to complete a contingent of His warriors (see below) of total value 552 points on or before August 1st, 2018. Success will bring me eternal glory and failure will doom me to wear the Badge of the Oathbreaker until the year-end and be forever cast from His favour. Glory to the Emperor and Glory to the Octarch.
 
 
1 x Company commander
5 x Bullgryns with mauls+slab  = 210
2 x Astropath conversions with laspistols (hooded dude on the left is the first) = 60
2 x Infantry squads with heavy bolter team and bolter/chainsword sergeant = 98 
1 x Leman Russ with battlecannon and hull mounted heavy bolter + stormbolter = 154
 
May He bless this enterprise.
 
I beg your forgiveness, fellow generals for the potato quality of the pictures. Updates should be of superior quality.

Welcome Mr. Zakalwe to the Guard Outpost. Good luck with your model-rich vow!

But guys, seriously? where is the might of the Guard - it used to carry the entire IFOR upon its shoulders and now? Just two brave generals have stepped forward... Oh, how the mighty have fallen...

Trooping the Colours probably burnt people out for a few months. That's my guess. I'm sure it's going to pick-up.

Honestly I'm trying to get my army to a playable state and the way I'm forcing myself to paint is that I'm not allowing myself to play at all until I have a painted army. In retrospect this was a mistake as a returning Guard player but I'm committed now.

On the bright side painting a high elf army I found some techniques to really speed things along with line infantry, it's the tank and Ogryns I'm worried about!

Also thanks for the welcome!

I will give this a go - I'll do a count up tomorrow and see what I feel like I can get done in time.

My backlog at the moment is a Sentinel, a Chimera, a Wyvern, 6 heavy weapons teams and a couple of squads of infantry...
