Greetings brothers and sisters,

 

you might have heard or read that the majority of the Broterhood of the Lost project, which covered an entire alternate universe, left the group including some well known legions like the Wardens of Light or the Berserkers of Uran. Just yesterday did I post a related declaration of severance, which you can read within the BotL section.

 

Due to creative differences, etc. we no longer felt that we could remain in this project. I don't want to dive into that too much as this is our past and not our future.

 

Instead we want to move on and create something entirely new with the factions and storylines we spent the last four years creating.

As such, a new project is assuming a form apart from the bolterandchainsword. Nonetheless do we feel deeply connected with this board, which is still our home and birthplace of manifold ideas, concepts and discussions. Because of that, we decided that we don't want to severe our ties with this board and further, you, the community.

 

This thread shall act as a first contact point between us to get into contact with each other.

 

So what's the current status?

 

- We are revising ideas for both, legions and the overall setting in order to start something completely new. That means, if you are interested in joining, don't hesitate to drop a note. Even if the legion set up might be done, there are still numerous ways of participating.

- We are restructuring the group and project on a seperate discord server. Already do we have several "newcomers" joining the fray, adding to the great discussions we alread have over there.

- The term "Alternate Legions" is just a placeholder until we've decided upon setting, legions, etc. Most of the time, finishing those automatically give birth to project names.

- If you've never heard of the idea of an alternate universe / alternate Horus Heresy scenarios, then you might want to browse through the related "Alternate Legions - XY" threads I moved over here. They might give you a good insight of what this is all about.

- Nothing's written in stone yet. Even said legions might be revised and changed. Maybe the Wardens of Light become the new archtraitor? Maybe the Gravestalkers (a legion of hideous pariah marines) change sides, as well?

 

Long speech short:

A new project with an experienced team working in the background, will be announced sooner than later. The Dornian Heresy is the most prominent one out there. We want to follow in its footsteps and go even beyond.

 

Let's do this together, shall we? msn-wink.gif

 

Cheers,

Kelborn

So, out of curiosity, what kind of work are you looking for? More just a show of interest or stuff we might have already in the works for this? I will admit, I am interested in taking part and working in a bigger project. It just seems a bit vague on what is available to write about for this new project.

We're currently in a phase to gather ideas, thoughts, concepts, etc.
Then, we'll have a look on what we want to go with, what legions might fit, etc.

We don't want to force legions into a finished setting and the other way around.

So we're open minded for any creative thought. :)

I am interested, though I have a question as to how much familiarity with the number crunching of the tabletop, itself.  I know some other alternate heresy projects attempt to propose hypothetical army lists and assign points and stat lines to the things they come up with, but while I follow the 30K and 40K lore, I haven't delved into Tabletop.  Will that be an issue?

Not at all, because neither did I.
Never played or painted miniatures and I've come up with a Legion and with support managed to work out rules, etc.

I would like to put forward my interest in joining the group. While I have done some smaller story-pieces I feel like contributing to a larger narrative with my own work would be very rewarding for both myself and your group. Is there any space or are you full for now?

Greetings,

There's always a chance to join. :)

Though we got all Legion slots covered, there are numerous factions and such to write upon. Knights, mortal regiments and so on.

Any preferences? Do you have discord?

We'll announcing our official start and transition unto BnC in the next couple of days.

Personally I enjoy writing smaller stories rather than more sweeping elements and a lot of mechanicus branches such as titan leigons, but I could easily expand my scope to accommodate whatever's necessary. I do have discord as well, though I don't use it very often if I'm honest. Hopefully I can join before the big announcement then! :)

We could, but I'd suggest creating an actual intro summary thread as well in that case.
