This could be a rough month, friends. A fair amount of us have played both jokers already, and with the holidays coming up there probably won't be a lot of time to paint. Good luck!
In this thread members who signed up for the 'event' will be required to post each month - on the 1st of the month the following items:
* A picture of 200pts worth of miniatures that they have painted for the month's challenge
* A picture of the entire army that they have painted thus far.
In addition, members are allowed to post any fluff or list that they have selected to use or comments which they decide to post. They are also allowed to have their own WIP blogs, but still must post the images in this thread.
The following members have chosen to do a 40k army:
The Paint Monkey
Black Templar (Renegade-ish) Crusade
Space Marine Bikes
Custom-chapter Space Marines with DH allies
Imperial Fist (with DH Allies perhaps!)
Chaos - Black Legion
tau (Farsight enclave based)
all 4 marks
Cyric the Mad
The Lamenters, Cursed Chapter of the 13th Founding
Salamanders Space Marines
Imperial Fists 5th company "Siegebreakers"
Best of luck to you all! First deadline is.... 1st January
Here's my painting for this month. It's two tactical squads. It'll take me a little way over my points balance but I'm saving a month for basing so I'm looking at it as a work 'credit'.
Next month looks like Termies.
This includes a squad from last month (I posted too late and ended up jokering- still had the figures done so I'll have an extra squad at the end!).
Edit: My total points so far is 470pts. This doesn't include the Jokered squad, nor the veteran sergeants. I've left them out because I'll probably paint a couple of 'normal' squad leaders and have the vets around if I can squeeze an extra powerfist out of the points.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
Here are my entries for the month. One Scout Squad and one Land Speeder Tornado comes in at exactly 200pts. I was planning on entering a full tac squad with transport, but I figured better safe than sorry. I'm still gunning to have that tac squad done.And here's the army so far, including the Dred, which wasn't done for this project, but is part of my army nonetheless (which is to say I forgot to get a photo without it).
This puts me at a total of 655 points for the project so far. On a personal note, I'm amazed that I haven't used a Joker yet. I hope this keeps up ;Y

Heya! joker for me - too busy travelling! But I have to paint up about 1000 points in the next month for an upcoming tounament, so expect more from me then!

Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.
Despite the fact that you have stated that December is a "Free" month, I have lost all motivation in getting this project completed on time. So to that extent, consider me out of the TOP. I'll continue my work when I'm done with my everyday dramas. I need a new job, I'm getting married soon, and I'm moving house, so life's a bit "meh" for me at the moment.
Looking sweet everyone. I'm taking a joker this month, i've got a bunch of units about 75% done that will be done for next month, probably end up well over 200 points, but i've been having too much fun painting non eldar this month (the week trip to the dominican republic didn't help painting much either )
I hope it is ok to join Tale of Painters at such a late date, Cyric said it was cool, I have been painting this Templar army since around the same time that ToP started give or take a couple of days as shown by my project thread *LINK* (Black Templars WIP) But if anyone has a problem with me joining just say and I will just carry on as I was, just wanted the added motivation of a deadline 8X
Here's what I got done for Jan, I tried posting last night but the site was down all night for me
models all come to 370 points worth
Army so far
total so far 1614points
