Followers of the Silent King hear this! It is our time to rule again, to rise beyond our former glory to claim dominance over the galaxy!
So begins the Royal Awakening! The next two weeks, being today July 25th to August 8th, will be allotted as a build time for us to reanimate or otherwise acquire our forces. Following that the main painting event will run for three months from August 8th to November 8th. Over the course of this time everyone involved will have 5 vows where they can pledge any amount of models at a time. A vow must be completely finished before a new one is made. Up to 2 of these vows can be made during the build time and will earn an additional Scarab added onto the achievement badge awarded at the end of the event, representing the member's fervent commitment to the Royal Awakening (or just schedules only kind of lining up ). These 2 vows count toward your total, so during the event time you will only have 3 more vows available.
EDIT: Any vows made during the build time must be completed during the build time in order to earn the Scarab badge addition. All completed vows will count toward your total so long as they are made and completed during the event (though I will only count vows made and completed during the painting period of the event for comparison to last year's ETL efforts, but that's just for fun).
The badges being awarded will be for the following categories:
- Royal Warden -- participation and completion of a vow.
- Lord -- completion of 1,000+ points.
- Overlord -- completion of 1,500+ points.
- Phaeron -- completion of 2,000+ points.
Here's a sneak peek at what you'll be able to proudly display in your signature upon completion in the event:
When making a vow include a "before" picture of the models no more than primed and include the current point value as equipped with your statement of intent. Units included in a vow must meet the minimum unit requirements on their datasheet.
Use this thread for showing off pictures of your freshly built models (though you are welcome to use/create project logs for chronicling your RA involvement) as well as to make pre-main event vows, bonus marks if you get in-character for your interactions. There will be another thread on the 8th for painting vows, completions, and WIP work. I'll be keeping track of overall points but keeping an eye on how much is done from the 8th on. I'm sure I'm not alone in wondering how much we can collectively paint in three months and maybe also comparing it to last year's ETL total
Please also feel free to post up any questions you have regarding the event. This is my first time doing something like this and I'm bound to miss a crossed "t" or dotted "i" somewhere.
