*A time of war*
The bio-mechanical serpents slithered around him, consuming the armours, bodies and very souls of the fallen lying strewn around on the ground. They had once been his mechadendrites, but that was ages ago and now they acted with a daemonic intelligence and purpose both with and without his command. Back in the eye he had dabbled in abominable intelligence to rebuild them, a mystic and secretive science with an abundance in danger. He remembered well the warnings in the texts about the Men of Iron, and the danger they possessed. He had been very careful when it came to designing them, and in the end the daemonic possession to them was a boon if anything, since it meant he could construct pacts and sorcery to keep them under his control.
The mechanical beast let out a low growl as the serpents began to repair it under his guidance. It had suffered greatly under the assault but was still alive...if you could truly call what it had "life". His own mechanical mount was grazing a short distance away, like a tamed dairy beast of old but instead of grass, it consumed the very essence of the reality around it.
A binary chant on his inter-vox notified him of a gathering of daemon engines that needed direction, and he called over his mount to move out and take charge of them. The Masters of Possession were very good at creating these monstrosities, but to control them they had less...authority...
The damaged machine was repaired enough and would recover in due time, and it happily skittered after him when he moved toward the other machines and towards battle...
At long last, reinforcement has arrived for our beleaguered chaos forces. New models are inbound and the chaos warlords are eagerly awaiting their arrival! What better time to stage a modelling contest amongst the frater? None, I'd say especially with all the goodies that are coming out.
This will be a modelling challenge for all you chaos-lovers out there, and even those only dabbling a bit in chaos, dipping their toes in the warp and will forever be tainted hereafter we hope...
The challenge involves you, frater, pledging to complete building one of the following detachments. After you have finished one, you are free to pledge another one. For the insane of you, you are welcome to collect all of the badges...
Your pledge will start with you posting in this thread with your vow to complete one of the detachments above (ie. "I, Excessus, pledge to complete a Brigade detachment before the first of may, 2019, for the glory of the chaos gods"...or something like that). You can then collect your participation badge:
Then you will need to post a picture of sprues or bits, proving that you are starting your pledge. And finally, you need to post a picture of your finished detachment before the time limit.
Q: Can I pledge partially built models?
A: Yes, if there will be improvement enough on them. If you are unsure, send me a PM.
Q: Can my finished models be magnetised or purposefully not put together because of painting styles etc?
A: Yes, magnets or glue doesn't matter. If you paint your marines unassembled I would suggest you prop them up with blue-tac or similar products to not just have a picture of a pile of bits. Nothing can be still on a sprue though...
Q: Can I mix my detachments between the different chaos armies? R&H, Daemons, Knights and so on.
A: Yes, chaos forever!
Q: I have a model that has been built a little, would that be ok?
A: It depends. If it is fully built or very near completition (just an arm missing or such) then no, but if there will be a lot of improvement (conversion, GS and such) then it would be fine. If you're unsure send me a PM.
That should do it! Go ahead and make your vows and collect the badges! If you have any questions or are unsure about anything, just go ahead and ask.
Let the building begin!
