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.
Just a quick reminder, everyone - If you paint more than 200 points in a month, Kudos to ya. However, for the purposes of this project, please limit your monthly entries to as close to 200 points as you can muster, going a bit over in favor of being a bit under of course.
The following members have chosen to do a 40k army:
The Paint Monkey
Space Marine Bikes
Chaos - Black Legion
Cyric the Mad
The Lamenters, Cursed Chapter of the 13th Founding
Best of luck to you all! First deadline is.... 1st April
Right well this month I refuse to leave it to the last minute which this time would be April Fools Day....for the purpose of Tale of Painters I have not included the points cost of venerable dreadnought and tank hunter just so I could include the last few neophytes and get them out of the way, but if that is a problem Cyric let me know and I will retake the photos and leave a couple out.
this month's entry
Dreadnought (twin linked lascannon + missle launcher)
army so far
I'm going to have to do the same as Mr. Dee here. As I have said earlier, when I jokered out in January for the Feb 1st deadline, I pushed forward my schedule to have my chaplain and 2 bikers done in Feb while I finished my Feb 1 deadline. Well I finished my chaplain a bit faster than I expected, and the 2 bikers that go along with him were done with the bikes I submitted last month, so I'm just gonna post my stuff now. This way I have technically nulled that joker I had to play in January. (Please don't hate us for breaking the rules and painting more than 200 pts in one month).
So this month is-
1 Chaplain on bike- 132pts
2 Normal Sm bikers- 68pts
For a total of exactly 200pts, which brings my army up to 776pts with the attack bikes kitted with multimeltas.
Don't worry about that being so much under 800, which I think it should be, because from now on I think all of my entries are going to be over 200, as my total army comes out to more like 2100-2200 because of my large devastator squad being split in two.
So with out further ado I present my entry:
And the whole are my shot:
In a move that surprises even me, I'm a full two weeks early on this month's entry. Without further ado:
Ravenwing support squadron (1 assault cannon, 1 typhoon missile launcher):
And here's the army so far:
This puts me at 175 for the month, but I'm still a bit ahead (1035 for the project). The next couple of months will probably show me coming in just under 200.
OK- I've finished my model for the month- one vindicator of doom!
Unfortunately my flat got burgled last week and I'm now a bit short a digi-cam. Photos will follow when I can borrow one (which will hopefully be before the 1st). Please don't joker me! Please! I sat up all night to get it done!
Edit: Photos! Here's the vindicator- I've used the sensor array to represent the Power of the Machine Spirit. In the first two it has the PotMS upgrade and in the last it doesn't. The two marines were painted months ago but are really only there to check that the colours are good.
No whole army photo at this stage- I had to take the tank to a friend's house to take the photos and I wasn't up to transporting the whole army!

No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
Here we go...the squad this month is an assualt squad. Its not exactly 200pts but it has been the most detailed squad i've painted so far. Onto pictures.....
And some closer shots.
And here is the shot of the whole army to date for the end of March 2008.
So points wise....
Librarian - 170pts
Scout Squad- 108pts
Scout Assualt Squad- 130pts
Veteran Squad- 340pts
So after five months its not exactly 1000pts but I promise from here on it the other squads are going to be well over the 200pt mark to make up for it.
C&C much appreciated!
