Our people are under threat of annihilation from all fronts; the Webway is assailed, Commorragh is under siege and even those in Realspace are hounded. Even with the creation of a new God we still decline but never have we fought harder than with now, with our backs against the wall we shall continue to push on.
 
 
With 9th edition upon us, this would make a good opportunity to get an event going for the Aeldari. Whether you have an army you’re working on, a backlog to get through or just want to paint one model, we’d love to have you.
 
 
The Rules are nice and simple;
 

 

  • Make a pledge to paint one model/unit between 12th September and 14th November. 
  • You may make a vow that is one model from a unit that would otherwise be more than one, ie: One Kabalite warrior. You may make multiple vows as long as you have completed the last vow
  • A starting picture is required. Any model/unit that is anywhere from: New in box to sprayed/undercoated is absolutely fine.
  • A finished picture is also required, this MUST be completed to your declared standards

An example vow would be:
 
I, Trawlingcleaner, vow to complete 1 unit of 5 Howling Banshees before November 14th
{picture of models}
 
There’s no specific narrative to this event but if you’re in a Crusade or just want to include it, fluff is more than welcome alongside finished/ in progress models.
 
You can take whichever faction completion badge you make a vow for:
 
Craftworld:

Drukhari:

Harlequins:

Good to have you aboard Dwango! Any idea what you'll pledge?

You can do it Ax! 1 model is all you need to pledge and it might be enough to get the ball rolling! biggrin.png

Come and join in the fun ax. Be good to see more quins!

Ooh, not sure as yet. I'm ploughing through an army from the masque of the soaring spite as well as a Mymeara craftworld army. I think I'll do a squad of something whatever I pick.

I’ll have to get some Drukhari I think if I do this. Sold all my unbuilt quins as they were getting in the way. Fancy starting a drukhari kill team so a perfect excuse I reckon.

I might be up for this; I haven’t painted any elder since about 6th edition (or maybe 7th, I can’t remember).

Not sure what I have around to paint, but I’ll find something. With the new Brass spray I have been contemplating redoing my Wraithconstructs as animated statues, so this might be a good test run to see if can a scheme to work.

Unfortunate that my Quins are basically done.

I might see if I can find any of my craftworlds models from a few years back - I started an army but never finished - and then might vow something.

Appreciate the thought in any case. Go Aeldari!

But I have a fair amount of Eldar corsairs to finish!

I'm actually in an Eldar mood at the moment, just kitbashed a farseer from a bonesinger, and started building my crimson hunter, so this comes at the perfect time :)

I would love to make a vow for this (I have many unpainted and unbuilt Eldar models in the backlog) but I am due to move in November, my second child is due in the next two weeks and my ultramarine project is currently moving at full steam. 

 

Don't count me out, but chances are low!

So I saw this in the News section and I have a plan.

 

While I'm not going to start on this until after Oct 1st (I have other commitments) I will do this. To make sure I remember I'm going to declare my vow now and I'll add pictures later. Just need to keep it on my radar.

 

I, Focslain, vow to complete 5 Wraithguard, a Spiritseer, a Wraithlord, and a warwalker by Nov 14th.

 

[picts incoming]

 

Might as well get on the first of two SCs I have.

The greater the challenge the greater the victory, so I challenge the impossible.

I've got a small Harlequin squad on standby for Kill Team goodness, but I should have some unpainted clowns hiding somewhere. Will vow once I have plunged the depths of my backlog and discovered where they're hiding.

I, WarriorFish, vow to complete 9 Kabalite Warriors before November 14th:

 

 

They've been primed since but I don't have a picture of that tongue.png Hopefully I can paint these up fairly quickly, all my projects are having to fight my nids for attention currently... I'd like to move on to another unit afterwards like a Succubus or Lelith perhaps but we'll see, got a couple of months right? smile.png

 

2 months is ages right? I haven't felt like the last 6 months have skated by without me even noticing teehee.gif

 

The 1st True Kin Vow! Good to have you on board yes.gif
