I activate my no bases for 1st time ETL entry this year card then.whistling.gif  Its just bases and transfers are low priority for me when I got 100+ guys sitting on my desk needing to be painted. I got just the thing in mind to pledge in addition to the 6 rotor havocs for an out of vow HH entry.

@ Semper: Re: your point about Havocs:

Hidden Content


So... considering the rotor/reaper cannon (many ppl using the FW rotor cannons as reaper cannons) is legit, considering 2x5=10, considering a big shooty thing is more points and more paint work than a small shooty thing and thus would be allowed as counts-as, would my suggestion:

Hidden Content

be considered ETL legal - provided one of the five guys in both squads looks more elaborate and could be considered an officer/aspiring champion?

The man had only 6 rotor cannons... Not enough for two squads. Otherwise something like what you suggest might have worked.

Just as a general reminder, the “count-as” is not to be used to allow everybody to do everything. As such, every ruling is on a case-by-case basis - not for creating a specific lists of what count-as what. Generally speaking people should make every effort to go for wysiwyg and the “count-as” should only be invoked as a last resort.

It could also be a 5 man havoc squad with flashy sergeant, and a single OOC rotor cannon man?

no because havocs may only take 4 heavy weapons.... could be two squads of three though. But then there's the problem of what to do with the other two guys in those two squads...

I meant something along the lines of:
Havoc squad
4 havocs with rotor cannon
1 havoc champion with ?counts as twin linked bolter?

then out of competition one havoc

I have a feeling that I'd be supporting the Chaos Space Marines this event after a difficult decision against two other factions. Got a bit of a backlog going on the new releases anyway.

 

Just a question, I've got a named character who should be the colours of a specific legion, however what I've made so far is of another legion. I want this named character to be painted like the legion I'm currently collecting so he matches and I'm not too comfortable with cutting bits off of him for other bits. For the purposes of the ETL would it be ok to pledge him as the named character or would he have to be a normal Chaos Lord?

How you paint your miniatures is your own decision - who knows, maybe Abaddon has a yellow suit of armour somewhere... tongue.png

Seriously though, the ETL is not policing your choice of colours. What were interested in, is for people to pledge game-legal units with WYSIWG equipment and priced according to the most recent official source that is compatible with your Forum of choice (Codex, Chapter Approved, Erratas, etc.).

So you want to make a black Khârn? be my guest! A pink Abaddon with little ciel elephants dotted all over him? fine by me! You are the one who will have to live with them! biggrin.png

If you go to last year's ETL FAQ's and you check out "special characters and count-as special characters"section, I think it'll help you see where we're going from on this.

In short, a special character is a special character no matter the colour you choose to paint him.

Thank you for the replies Iron Father Ferrum and Captain Semper.

 

That's good for me, I was planning on turning Khârn into a fluffy bunny and Abbadon into a pink and white sun worshipping elephant! I'm fine with living with that, slannesh is in fashion at the moment anyway.

I kid, nothing that drastic.

 

I'm glad that's okay-ed and the result should appear in the event.

 

 

 

 

 

 

(I didn't know that Khârn auto corrects to have the accent)

I think Abaddon would look fine in pink. Takes a strong person to be confident in pink. Black however is the clothing colour of people who want to hide something or going for a formal event. How dull 😉

Black is good as well when you are a bit "bloated", makes you look thinner. msn-wink.gif

Well, a Black Crusade is sort of a formal event... :lol:

I've been looking forward to this... and I'm looking at the 3 converted Masters of Executions, as Flawless Host, on my desk ready for primer once the humidity dries out a bit.

I am currently thinking how I should split up my vows and need some help.

 

ATM I have the following:

Built (partly primed):
Daemon Prince with wings, and a Warp Bolter (if flamming skulls count as Warp Bolter)

Dark Apostle with Plasma pistol (if I'm right this would be legit due to the Index, otherwise I need to cut of his arm or demote him to a Chaos Lord)

Master of Execution

Master of Possession

2 Greater Possessed

2x5 Possessed

2 Obliterators

Malignant Plaguecaster

Typhus (a converted LoC)

9 Plague Marines

Biologus Putrifier

Helbrute with Twin Lascannon

Noxious Blightbringer

Foetid Bloat-drone with 2 Plaguespitters

Chaos Rhino

 

WIP:

2x5 Chaos Space Marines

5 Warp Talons

1 Obliterator

3 Deathshroud conversions

Myphitic Blight Hauler

 

Planned:

10 Fallen

Cypher

Sorcerer

5 Terminators

5 Plague Marines

 

If we exclude the planned stuff, how would you splitt the vows? I think that the Death Guard Part is not the problem with the painting scheme I have in mind (dirty white with green trims and a lot of washes). I will start on a test model for the Word Bearer part this weekend.
