The 49th Markovian regiment, long thought lost in the wake of the disastrous 13th Black Crusade, resurfaces in the Chalnath system. Though the 'Mad Dogs' sneer at the dictates of the departmento munitorum, the vengeful Colonel Phibes cannot ignore an opportunity to prey on old foes, be they the servants of the Emperor or the woefully naive xenos of the Tau.

My vow: 1 patrol detachment, led by a fallen psyker, Legatus. Seconded to him are the shotgun surgeons, a unit of veterans experienced in close-range firefights and their battered Antikythera class transport. These are accompanied by the dregs of Hive Megiddo, a band of mutants, twisted demi-humans and suspected but unproven psykers.

In game terms,
HQ: 1 Primaris Psyker
Troops: 1 unit of 10 veterans with shotguns + Chimera dedicated transport, 1 unit of 10  infantry 'men'

I have updated the participants! 

  • Cap'm Heckus
  • WarriorFish
  • Azekai
And the Munitorum is awaiting pledges from the following commanders:
  • Mordian Glory
  • Lord Marshal
  • Arkaniss
  • lionofjudah

 

I my self need to take some pictures of my pledge shortly too.

 

 

Soooo....very intrigued as I pulled my guardsdoodsmen out of the box for a lil "pew-pew" sound effects and reminiscing... and then i blew the dust off the box of grey shame and started to glue some olde primed doods onto bases and gazed longingly at all the stuffs' needing to be assembled.

I have no idea on this 8th edition battalion/command points/ 3 lists in a list,etc etc Al... Is like y'all are speaking a foreign language as I am exiting the warp from 30k and showing back up in the present time.

 

(...)

✓I have a command squad, several psykers, 20 dudes, 3 meltas, 2 grenade launchers, 2 sniper rifles, a hydra, a storm chimera, 2 centaurs and 3 mortar teams already painted and a bombard, a Minotaur, a laser destroyer and 2 russe's primed.

Also... I got a resizer app for my phone (lit photo) to shrink pics to load and I need help figuring out what size is best as the ones I loaded came out TINY?!?!

 

Lion for reference here are the current 40k FoC options:

Spoiler

 

Any one of those will be acceptable, you can always make the size larger if you are feeling up to the challenge msn-wink.gif

 

Resizing app will be great! Normally I resize my pics between 800 - 1200 pixels on the long edge which is plenty enough for most screens

 

Based what you proposed you could definitely pledge a Battalion if you think you can get them completed in time! (minimum 2x HQ's and 3 Troops)

If I knew of this last week I would have declared a spearhead detachment first, but I finished painting my last russ sunday.

 

Might still be able to, just have to side line a Wyvern and add a lord commissar to the list.

Just a quick hobby reminder if anyone is building GW Scion kits, build your hot-shot arm/gun/backpacks combos first and the special weapons that you clip the power cords off the backpacks second. You can always clip the cords of any of the packs but trying to align a mismatched pack+gun/arms is a lot more hassle.

So I stupidly painted my Inquisitor before vowing or taking pictures of him :( I just got excited and before I knew it he was finished!

Fortunately I have plenty more I can vow and with me working from home at the moment I should be able to do a decent sized vow :)

5 tanks without checking to see if there was an event. Still got some more to paint.

 

Are fully painted models I plan on repainting legal?

Great work all! The Nurgle actively sabotaging normal operations across the sector we expect to see more detachments raised and in quick succession!
Some pictures of progress are always a great way to keep the Commissariat pleased too ;)

I've updated the participants to include

  • Mordian Glory
  • longjohnsilver

Air Wing Detachment: 

  • Focslain

 

 Closet Skeleton, I expect to see your Spearhead detachment pledged shortly ;)

But I have finished the shotgun vets and the muties are half-done. Will post pictures when I get back home. Do the finalized entries need to be based?

Vanguard detachment consisting of 1 Primaris Psyker, 1 Platoon Commander, 1 Veteran Squad, 1 Special Weapon Squad, 1 Taurox and 3 Chimera.

 

Actually its 2 veteran squads but some of the men have details I'm not sure I'm going to paint over so they aren't in the vow.

Yes, I should base them. I just don't like messing with flock and/or gravel :P

Here are my half-finished muties and my scaborous vets. I am pretty happy with the results so far.

Picked up a few more paints and brushes right before the shelter-in-place order went into effect.

Good job on the Tempestus Scions.

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.
