The Inner Circle presents:gallery_48988_16308_680723.png

 

 

 

 

With the Venerable Captain Semper making the hard decision to postpone the gargantuan task that is the E Tenebrae Lux Inter-forum Painting Challenge this year due to the extended effects of the Coronavirus, we the Inner Circle shall not leave you high and dry.

 

Think of the Lock-down Painting Challenge as an ETL Lite, for those of you who remember the Librarium Painting Challenges of years past, this format will be familiar to you, with a few adjustments.

 

WHAT: The Challenge is simple, complete one model in three months. The model must be fully painted and based to your own standard. Feel free to pledge and complete more, but once you have completed the Challenge's single model, it is secure and cannot be lost. Your starting model may be assembled, and may have amaximum of a single base colour applied.

 

WHEN: The event will run May 15th through August 15th 2020.

 

Where: The Event will be run from the WIP Forum in The Forge, and will have one central thread for all Forums to declare their Vows and Completions.

 

HOW: Make your vow in the format (or any creative variant) provided below.

 

 

"I, {Insert name here}, vow to complete {at least 1 model of your choice here} for the Glory of the {Insert your Forum of Choice} on or by the 15th of August 2020, or bare the Badge of Shame until year's end"

 

 

 

You will also need to provide a minimum of a starting picture with your Vow post, and a completion picture with your Completion post.

 

 

 

*IMPORTANT* The Forum / Faction you choose DOES NOT limit which model/s you can paint. You may paint any model you wish and allocate your Pearl to whichever Forum / Faction you wish.

 

 

 

Completing the Challenge will earn one pearl for your Forum. Unlike the ETL where points play a big role in the Event, points have no role here, the only thing that counts here is Participants and Completions.

 

There are three Tiers of Completion Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Gold will be awarded for completing the Challenge on of before the 15th of June, Silver for the 15th of July, and Bronze for anytime before the last day of the Event. These tiers will only affect the Completion Badge you earn, and not the outcome of the evenr.

 

The Forums and Factions will be divided along the same lines of the ETL, with the addition of the Other Games Faction

Am I reading this right, the difference between this event and ETL is that faction completion will not be tracked and there won't be a winning faction? What about pledging models for different factions?

Faction and Forums will be tracked, it's just the Event IS NOT multi-vow, points based. It is one point/pearl maximum to each participant. I did forget to mention you are not limited to a model from your Faction / Forum, you may paint whatever you wish, and allocate your Completion to whichever Forum you choose.

I think the difference is that points aren't tracked but models are. My question is, are Participants only able to score x1 Pearl for their Faction overall regardless of however many entries they complete, or is it based off models completed? (Steve Completes 100 models before June 15th and earns 100 Gold pearls OR does he only earn 1 Gold pearl for the whole event regardless of how many vows he finishes)?

It is a maximum of one Pearl per participant, no matter what, so having the numbers is the game here :tu:

If the winning faction isn't Adeptus Astartes do we get real gold plaques?

I was looking forward to the ETL, and this will be a great opportunity to do up a little model! Basing might be a problem if shops don't open before June but no worries yet. :) 


Maybe you could model TWC-sized "were-templars" who's inner Templar took over in the fury of battle transforming them into a giant half man - half templar?

Alright, I'll join. Thanks for planning this, Grotsmasha! Will definitely go for the Agents again, even though I'm painting my Ultramarines Primaris right now, because my Custodes look at me accusingly in their unfinished state. :)

I'll wait til the official opening, then decide. I have a lot on the docket just due to the 12 month challenge.


A challenge is a challenge till it is beaten, then it is a victory.
The greater the challenge the greater the victory, so I challenge the impossible.
