Registering gives you full access to take part in discussions, upload pictures, contact other members and search everything!
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 July
I'll go ahead and get this over with.
I've only got 2 models left for this project - a Forge World venerable dreadnought, and Sammael. Since they're both decent-sized, detailed, and important, I'm taking 2 months each to paint them. So this month will be a joker followed by the Dreadnought, followed by a joker and then Sammy. It'll be glorious.
So with that:
Here is my entry: Librarian with familiar and an attack bike. Also looks like I am gonna be burning my 'free joker' that I go by being a month ahead of schedule this coming month, as my new nid army is taking time away from finishing my next entry before the end of this month. So i'll have it done by the time it is actually due, at the end of july.
Attack Bike- 67pts
Army total- ~1500pts
Good luck to the rest of you.
OK- I've managed to get a veteran assault squad done. The insurance company has failed me and I won't be getting a new digi-cam until after the deadline so you'll all have to tolerate another batch of nasty, nasty photos. Sorry. I'll retake all the pictures when I do get my own new camera- it'll give me a reason to practice with it.
I'm also going to work out a proper points value for what's done so far. Watch this space.
Here we go! Still not best photos but the more-or-less finished termie sgt is in here too. Pretty much all these models need extra detail like unit badges and script work but that's something that can wait. Getting done on time and the army finished in time for the 40k release is the priority at the moment.
No army photo because.... well... because I'm the Earl of Forgetful.

Quite possibly my worst photos ever, i'll try and get better ones tomorrow, but, given that July 1st is Canada Day (think 4th of July 3 days early) i may or may not make the deadline unless i post up these photos.
Warlock is worth 33 points, the Warpspider Exarch is 49 and the wraithlord clocks in at 155, for a total of 247 for the month
Damn. i just noticed the photo doesn't show the scratchbuilt second weapon holder or the greenstuff flamer on the wraithlord. Definitely going to have to take more photos tomorrow.
Joker for me this month.
Couldn't get it together in time.

just a quick q but are we going to get a summary post this month? I'd be curious to see how many jokers i still have
