"Then you're not making the right plans."

Welcome to the 7th iteration of the Sons of Dorn Expansion (formerly known as the Imperial Fists Expansion), an event designed to motivate you to get your unpainted models out of their dusty boxes and to slap enough paint onto them to call them "finished"!
If you want to join in, follow these four easy steps:
- Gather your unassembled and/or unpainted models that represent one of the many Chapters of Rogal Dorn's bloodline (or even the mighty VIIth Legion itself);
- Take a picture of them in their current state and post it in this thread along with a vow to paint them before the end of the event (Sunday 14th March 2021 at 23:59 in your timezone);
- Once the models are painted to a level that you are happy with, take a picture of them and post in this thread to mark your vow as complete;
- If you've managed to complete your vow before 14th March and feel like painting some more, go back to step 1 and do it all again!
If you lack the inspiration and/or time to come up with an inspiring vow, consider using the following example as a foundation:
I, (insert forum name), vow in the name of Rogal Dorn and the (insert Chapter name) to complete (insert unit/model name and quantity) by 14th March 2021.
For Dorn, Terra, and the Emperor!
If you have any questions, check out the Q&A section below. If you can't find an answer to your question below, feel free to ask in this thread or contact Dosjetka via personal message (PM).
Now get building and painting in the name of our Primarch and the Emperor!
Q: Can I vow models that already have paint on them?
A: Yes! You can vow any model as long as you consider it to be unfinished.
Q: Can I paint up my models in the colours of a custom Chapter of my own design?
A: As long as you claim them to be from Dorn's gene-line, you can!
Q: Can I paint models that are currently in service of the Deathwatch or the Legio?
A: Of course, as long as they're from a Dornian Chapter; they still wear their Chapter colours with pride on their right pauldron after all!
Q: Can I vow models that are vowed in other events?
Q: Can I post ongoing progress pictures or just when the final ones?
A: The more in-progress pictures, the merrier!
Q: Is there an event banner for my signature space?
A: I'm glad you asked! It's tradition on the B&C to have signature banners for events and this is no exception! I've already got the banner in my signature, what's your excuse?
