Well, I have been in this forums for a few years. First, silently as a mere lurker, then slowly becoming more active (and mostly still in the subforums of my own chapter of preference). In all this time, I have never, ever, participated in any kind of challenge.
You know what? It's about time that changes!
And this challenge in particular looks right up my alley. Plenty of time for a very small and controlled paint challenge, preluded by my favourite part of the hobby: Writting lore!
So, let's do this, and swear to not break this vow before the year is out.
"I, Berzul, vow upon the honour of my chapter, the Wings of Dawn, to write about a DIY chapter in the Liber Astartes by November 1st to a complete standard. I vow to also complete 1 miniature of a chapter randomly assigned to me before January 1st 2020.
Should I fail, I shall wear the signature of shame until I have redeemed myself in the eyes of the Liber."
I own no chaos space marines, nor any ultima founding marines, but I do have plenty of bits for making old school marines. Assault, Tactical, Devastators and the like.
So, consider me devoted to this vow, with the ability to paint one of these types of marines, per the requirements of the challenge.
I shall write and further develop my own Successor Chapter, the Wings of Dawn, for this vow, starting a thread in the Liber for them. I hope that, throughout this challenge, I will find the motivation I need to actually finish their lore, as I have been stuck halfway through with them for quite a while.
