UPCOMING EVENT: SEPT - DEC 2019 "THE LIBER ASTARTES SWAP CHALLENGE"


 
Greetings Brothers and Sisters of the LIBER!
 
So for those of the Adeptus Astartes persuasion, it has been a very busy month with the release of a new Codex and Supplements, including the return of Chapter Tactics to really allow us Liberites to really go and have fun creating our unique Chapters of Space Marines.
 
As a result and to help drum up further activity here and display some comradely fun, I am resurrecting an old event first championed in my old days by "Captain_Shrike" before "Ferrus Manus" took up the responsibility of the DIY Chapter Swap.
 
Now this event will be a little bit different from that event of old if you are venerable enough to remember. This event will champion new writing of fresh Chapters of Space Marines, or alternatively, updating Chapter articles you have made here on the B&C (for older hands like myself I will likely follow this route.
 
Jimmy: So, Brother Cambrius, how will this work?
 
I am so glad that you asked me, Jimmy!
 
So here is the planned breakdown of what will happen in 2 phases:
 
PHASE 1 (September 3rd - October 31st)
 
Participants must submit a complete DIY Chapter article by November 1st.
 
By complete, I want to see an article that covers the basics on your Chapter to define who they are, what they do and what are they like to really help the person who will be creating a miniature from your Chapter in Phase 2.
 
If you want to get a scope on what is needed at the bare minimum, you could look up some examples from Forge World entries on Chapters, which aren't a full codex or article entry, but really define the Chapter succinctly. Another good example are the mini IAs I have constructed over the years like the Avenging Fists and Demolishers. More detailed articles are most certainly encouraged as Phase 1 is all about creating and improving your Chapter with input from everyone else.
 
Jimmy: But, Brother Cambrius, what about those Liberites who have submitted articles or have made an army of one of their numerous Chapters over the years and may not want to start afresh with a new Chapter?
 
Jimmy you really are asking so many pertinent questions, aren't you? 
 
Well fret not Liberites! With the release of the new Codex and the whole Primaris addition and progression of the 40k Universe a while back, this opens up a fantastic opportunity for older hands to revive older articles if they desire and update them to the current timeline. Are they destroyed, reborn with a large amount of Primaris, still the same but with newer responsibilities or moments of triumph/despair that have defined the Chapter's psyche and doctrines? All of this is fresh meat and fluff to chew and play around with. I'll be doing this myself with some of my older Chapter(s), depending on participation.
 
Jimmy: What about those who make Index Traitoris articles on Chaos Marines and Renegades? Can they take part?
 
Well Jimmy, yes they can! But numbers will be vital in ensuring they will have a partner who we can swap their Warband/Chapter with and can produce an appropriate model. If numbers are insufficient, the Moderati team will look into a work around. Now then Jimmy, it is clear you have been influenced by the foul notions of the Warp to even ask such a question, so off to Servitor indoctrination for you...

Jimmy: Wait, what?! Moderati, no! Nooooo!
 
-Ahem- Now, where were we?

 

HQ.gif Articles must include an image of the chapter's heraldry and symbol (this can be done by including an image or images using a miniature you have painted, or the Space Marine Painters here on the B&C, or the GW Primaris variant). HQ.gif 

 
Participants must also include which Space Marine models they are willing and able to build and construct in the Vow they will submit when the event begins on September 3rd, as not everyone has Primaris marines yet, which would be a little awkward if they got an Ultima Founding Chapter.

PHASE 2 (November 1st)
 
It is at this point Chapter IA/Articles/IT submissions for this events are cut off and each participant is randomly assigned a chapter through a PM to build and paint a model of.You will have up to January 1st 2020 to complete their model(s).
 
Participants will need to submit an image of their WIPs and Completed miniatures in the respective threads created at the start of Phase 2 in WIPs and the Hall of Honour, with direct links in the LIBER to these in the opening post of the Chapter Swap event thread.
 
Further details on this phase will emerge as we get closer to the date when I construct the Phase 2 Master Post for participants.
 
+++++
 
And that is it as an introduction! Plenty of details there for you to chew over and start planning possibly. But if you are making a fresh IA for this event, remember this does not start until September 3rd when the post to make your vows is uploaded to the Liber.
 
For now, review your creations and armies and plastic, and see what you can possibly submit for this fine event.
 
Oh, and there will be Banners for this event as well, and possibly some unique titles for specifically active participants as well.
 
That's all for now! See you soon.
 
Cambrius

Why not? I'm in.

 

The White Hawks were already next on my 'to write' list anyway, might as well give myself some more motivation.

...Also they're the only Chapter I have with a symbol I can actually paint, so it'll have to be the boys from Talhon since a Chapter symbol is required. laugh.png

Well you could ask nicely for me to try and make a sumbol for your other projects, Ace. Gotta help out my other silly hat wearing Liber Heraldry Dept colleague.

But it'll be great to see a Primaris update to those nutters from Talhon. 😁

Those other projects can wait a little longer*; the White Hawks will fly once more for The Emperor! biggrin.png
 
* Possibly indefinitely, depending on how long it takes me to be happy with the Warminds and the White Hawks. sweat.gif

In any case, I look forward to seeing who else answers the call.
I can (probably) do either Firstborn or Primaris marines for this challenge, and in either case have it in mind to make a sergeant/lieutenant level character so I can tag them in for games of Space Crusade on special (read: extra difficult) missions.

Heck, I'm already coming up with some reasons why a single marine from another Chapter is hanging around the Glastheim Rifts. laugh.png

So up for this.  If I submit multiple Chapters/Warbands and do multiple models in return?

 

I still have Captain Coenwahl of Grey Hunter Ydlair's Blazing Sons lying around here somewhere.  Was great to push myself for a fellow frater.

 

I have so many Chapters to update/actually create proper articles for though, so if multiple are allowed that would be awesome.  And if we have uneven numbers or need some to make up the numbers, this unofficial reclusiarch of the Liber is happy to lend some zeal to see everyone gets a model done.

Sounds like a blast. I'll have to see if I can fit some marines into the budget to be able to participate. Just to add to the media choices for showing off heraldry and such; alongside the new codex they also put out an updated Primaris Marine template with a space for including Chapter Tactics: https://www.warhamme...ard_Aug2019.pdf

The Liber; it's like a Biscopea for DIYs!

Brother Argent! How nice it is to see you once more! :D I still have my 3 minis form the old swaps stored away safely as well. I always enjoyed this event so it is a privilege to bring it back as part of my new Moderati duties.

 

Yes, you can submit more than 1 Chapter, only change then is, as mentioned, you must make as many models from other Chapters as you submitted. I'll likely be doing similar depending on participation. :)

Thanks Messor! I wasn't sure if that was the one I had linked earlier. I'll add that into the big opening post of Phase 1 on the 3rd of September.

Hey mate.  I'm still around.  I just lurk.  In the air vents and other seeming impossible places.  Watching... waiting... ph34r.png  I am always here...

 

I watch you while you are all sleeping....

 

So I am likely to go two loyalist and two traitor.

 

Loyalist:

Star Leopards - 13th founding white marines (the re-incarnation of the guys I submitted last time)

Iron Heralds - The boys in red and black are back.   And hate you and everything you believe...

 

Traitor:

White Talons - Halved scheme traitors sworn to the God of Good Times

Angels of Decay - What happens if you get white Ultramarines and then sneeze on them... a lot...

 

Two of these need IAs and the other two need desperate work.  So off to the Schemetorium.

 

I'm back lads and lasses.  Lets do this...

How does one determine that an IA is "complete enough" for this challenge?

You carry the Emperor's will as your torch, with it destroy the shadows.

Accept all challenges, no matter the odds.

Suffer not the Heretic to live.

Abhor the Typo.

Well, Cambrius'  article on the Demolishers is a little under 300 words long, so I daresay it doesn't have to be an enormous amount of writing.

 

I'd say you just need something that summarizes who your Chapter are, and what makes them stand out a little from the crowd.

Like Cambrius says, though, if you want to write more, you're more than welcome to. (Good news for me since I tend to average a word count of about a thousand on a first draft laugh.png )

 

 

I'd also add "If in doubt, ask your fellow Challengers to see if they think anything needs expanding or adjusting", but since I'm not running the show I should probably let Cambrius answer the questions from this point on. sweat.gif tongue.png

Ace answered for me pretty nicely. :tu:

The 300 word Demolishers article is a bare minimum standard for the event. Thankfully with Phase 1 in making and/or updating the IA, you can grow it out further with input from your fellow Liberite Fraters. :) The more detail, the better it is for your swapped partner to make a model that befits your Chapter.

Phase 1 will begin tomorrow with sign ups and further details.
