Alright guys, lets see if we can't kickstart this thing again. What do you say to the following 'battleplan' (just humble suggestions :wink:):

- New colourschemes can be send in/posted up until januari 26th. Giving everybody plenty of time to get some quality time on the mini during the holidays and the few weeks after that.

- The 4 weeks after that can be used to determine if a single scheme is 'the chosen one' or if not we have 4 weeks to make small changes/additions to get it just right.

- And then finally by the end of februari the decision can be made.


Goals:

- Make a decision on the Dark Talons'colourscheme by march 1st.
- Iron out the last few fluff details.
- Work out the armysymbols, we already have a few great ones in the other thread so that shouldn't be to big a problem.

So if this schedule would work out we could have all the info, background and artwork together by end februari. Giving us a good 6 months worth of experimenting, converting and building to get the army done for the UK grand tournament beginning october :eek:k:


So far we have the following (click on the underlined section for a direct link to the thread):

- the fluff, part 1
Warning - it is pretty long, we' d very much appreciate everybody's thoughts on it so far
There are still some inconsistancies in there, as can be expected since its WIP.
Any thoughts or suggestions on the battlecry would be most helpful.

- Kilm Vanshal
Small segment on one of the legion's most important characters.

- Dark Talon special weapon
Ideas for an army unique weapon useable by only a few models and with permission for
your opponent.

- testminis for various colourschemes
More need to be done and we need to decide on a colourscheme. By the looks of it
the black/white right shoulderpad will most likely stay in there. Both because it looks
good and as a reminder of the stages the fluff has gone through..and as a hidden link
to an old chaos power :wink:

- legion symbol and icon design
Still very wip as this is rather linked to the colourscheme.


So far the following people are back on the project:
- the Wraithlord
- Elchimpster
- Jacobite
- Hephesto
- Warpath

Other willing to help out
- Frostbite
- Blackhiker
- RedApostle
- CATzeentch (?)

I'd be willing to help out where I can, though I'm not entirely sure what I can do.

It is a forum wide project to make up the Dark Talons, a Heresy Online chapter of Chaos Marines, complete with fluff, colour scheme, everything.

Have you already made the fluff yet?
I'm pretty sure the fluff is stickied at the top of this forum

And this sounds like a fun project - i didnt try to get involved when i joined cause it looked like there was no activity in it - i still have time to paint my Chaos doods whatever scheme this forum comes up with,
I'd really like a Dark Talon army

[[AKA: I'd really like an excuse for not painting for a few months]]

As Wraith said, this is a project that hopes to make a forum unique army. Complete with background, colourscheme, symbols, the lott. All this to make the actual army and take it to the UK Grand Tournament.....hopefully somewhere this decade :wink:

Hope that clarifies things a bit,

I'll be more than happy to help, especially from a fluff perspective. I've had a couple of ideas with regards to the involvement of Fabius Bile, I'll mull them over and post them later. When I do that should I stick it in a new thread or use the fluff thread linked above?

Great to hear it mate, given your artistic skills any help/suggestion on the colourscheme and symbolics of the legion would be brilliant!

Yeah our biggest two things right now are choosing the colour scheme and the design on the legion logos/banners.

Very true, I also think we need somebody to really take charge of this project and keep it on track. Normally I'd volunteer right away, but I'm in the middle of running an apocalypse sized project on another site (more on that in a week or two:wink:). This project will most likely take 1-2 months before it is completely done. However, I'll do whatever I can to keep things moving forward here as well!

So let's see:
- by the looks of it we're up to 8-9 people again
- priority is on working out the colourscheme and the icons
- after that the few problems of the fluff can be hammered out (Vanshal)
- check the colourscheme thread for my suggestions for the next step :wink: link

I know it wasn't on the list as high priority but I did it anyway as a quick job. The Kilm Vanshaal fluff has been changed to be more in keeping with current fluff.

Its not exactly the same i.e. he's still a Night Lord etc but some major stuff has been changed (like his allegiance and his current human/not human status). Personally I'd like to keep him the way he is for the reasons I say in the thread but as always its open to discusion and rewrites. Not a high priority though so put your time into the proper stuff.

Great work Jac, like how he is right now as well!

Alright guys, looks like this has gotten away from us yet again. And yes I am to blame as well, I have a tendency to keep a thousand balls in the air and then loose interest. I suspect we are to late to get this on track in time to reach the UK Grand Tournament. So I'm going to set a new goal (mostly personal), as soon as I finish another project for Astronomican I'll put in some major effort. UK Grand Tournament 2009 had better beware!
