Awesome, I will post up my LVO narrative army. Now I'm happy I lagged behind painting it.

Last year I was 1 point away from Gold, this year my goal will be different. I want to get a gold I will write my Fluff and get in a Display board!

I'm doing Admech this year it will be Epic and will be more than the HPC, lots of Bonus units! Glory for the Omnissiah!

I'm planning on working on 30K Ravenguard, Imperial Guard, and probably some AofS dwarves.

A quick question, are the Skitarii and Cult Mechanicus considered the same faction for the purposes of faction awards?

I'm debating entering this again, having bombed out of the 2014 challenge. I was wondering if there were any kind of restrictions this year. In 2014, you needed to do a 2000 point army, with the first 1000 points being for Zone Mortalis, and I'm curious if there was anything like that happening again this year (and that I've just missed it).

Question regarding "one army" for the challenge.

Do Skitarii and Cult Mech count as one given they're Adeptus Mechanicus? As well as the Imperial Knights. My intent is to build the war convocation in the HPC but need clarification.

Bit of a random one - my background fluff, I intend to do a narrative escalation as I get models painted - could I use a write up of this as my fluff background? Sort of add to it over the year and then put it up before challenge ends?

Loopy wrote:The following items count as a legal Commitment for credit:
  • 1 Warhammer 40,000 or Horus Heresy unit. Only 2 of these units may be an Independent Character. All other units must be either be a significant unit of infantry, vehicle(s), monstrous creature(s), bikes, or the like. What constitutes "significant", of course, is subjective, but try to keep them reasonable... 1 Rhino, 1 Daemon Prince, 3 Obliterators, 5 to 10 Tactical Marines, 3 to 6 bikes, etc. While 1 Attack Bike technically counts as a single Unit, it's not quite in the spirit of "significant".
So, I have a question about this part. I'm planning on doing Adepta Sororitas, but I'd want to do more than 2 Independent Characters (Saint Celestine, a Canoness, and at least 1 Ministorum Priest). Whilst I might have Saint Celestine or the Canoness as a single month's commitment, the Priest/s would be included alongside another unit which would be that month's commitment. Would that be okay?
