One more day on Miral, One more day for Rogal Dorn
The Imperial Fists are known for fighting on when they might be better served by retreat. Never has this been more apparent than when the Hive Fleet Leviathan attacked from below the galactic plane and posed a threat to Holy Terra itself.
Captain Lysander's battle group intercepted a splinter fleet of Leviathan on the verdant world of Miral. The Imperial Fists set up a fire base in time to meet the Tyranid onslaught and for six days, fighting fearlessly from their defences, they held firm against constant attack by overwhelming numbers.
By this time, tactical analysis indicated that another day on Miral would see the Imperial Fists over run but despite this their Chaplains walked amongst them, demanding one more day for the honour of Rogal Dorn. Inspired by the memory of their Primarch, the Imperial Fists fought on. Many fell, but by the end of the seventh day their banner still flew over the base and the Tyranids were gone.

Welcome to the latest painting challenge for the B&C sons of Dorn!
Want to know what it's all about? Follow the 4 easy steps below!
- Gather your unassembled and/or unpainted models that represent one of the many Chapters of Rogal Dorn's bloodline (or even the mighty VIIth Legion itself);
- Take a picture of them in their current state and post it in this thread along with a vow to paint them before the end of the event (2nd March 2019 at 23:59 in your timezone);
- Once the models are painted to a level that you are happy with, take a picture of them and post in this thread to mark your vow as complete;
- If you've managed to complete your vow before 2nd March and feel like painting some more, go back to step 1 and make another vow!
If you lack the inspiration and/or time to come up with an inspiring vow, consider using the following example as a foundation:
I, (insert forum name), vow in the name of Rogal Dorn and the (insert Chapter name) to complete (insert unit/model name and quantity) by 2nd March 2019.
For Dorn, Terra, and the Emperor!
If you have any questions, check out the Q&A section below. If you can't find an answer to your question, feel free to ask in this thread or to contact Chaplain Dosjetka via personal message (PM).
Now get building and painting in the name of our Primarch and the Emperor!
Q: Can I vow models that already have paint on them?
A: Yes! You can vow any model as long as you consider it to be unfinished.
Q: Can I paint up my models in the colours of a custom Chapter of my own design?
A: As long as you claim them to be from Dorn's gene-line, you can!
Q: Can I paint models that aren't from Codex: Space Marines (i.e. Deathwatch)?
A: Of course; they still wear their Chapter colours with pride on their right pauldron after all!
Q: That is an epic piece of artwork. Who's the artist?
A: Yes, it is and it's from Russian artist Dimitriy Mayorov who goes by the name of Slimdimanus on deviantArt (link).
Q: Is Chaplain Dosjetka really as cool as people make him out to be?
A: I can't say much but I've heard he actually is.
Q: Is there an event banner for my signature space?
A: I'm glad you asked! It's tradition on the B&C to have signature banners for events and this is no exception!
