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 fantasy army:
Vampire Counts (Lahmia)
Beasts of Chaos
Best of luck to you all! First deadline is.... 1st September
And here we are, finishing a painted 2000 point Bretonnian army (one that I actually run, as well). This project has been nothing short of amazing, and I want to give massive kudos to Cyric for running it and Kuffy for starting it. Cyric especially has put in a ton of work on this thing, and I think a lot of us owe a bit of our painted armies to this project and his effort.
So this month we have five Grail Knights:
And here we have the full army (+friends):
It's fantastic to have to stand way back and stand on a chair just to get a decent picture of your army.
I don't know if I'm going to do some more (icing) work on my army and post it next month, or just be satisfied with some movement tray and transfer work. We'll see what time and energy allow.
I also thought I'd put up the 2000 point list that I run (in a few varied forms, but more or less). There are a few things to point out. First, I run four of my Questing Knights with my five Grail Knights to make one nine man Grail Knight Unit. Secondly, I sometimes use a former member of a Knights of the Realm unit to make the ninth man in the Knight Errant unit. Finally, I don't use the Men at Arms very often in 2000 points, but they do make it into some other lists, just not often yet, as I don't have a lot to complement them.
So enough jibba jabba, here is the list:
Lords and Heroes
Lord (Attached to Knights of the Realm)
/w Horse, Shield, Audacity, Sword of Heroes, Gromril Great Helm
Paladin (BSB, Attached to Knights of the Realm with Damsel)
/w Horse, Shield, Virtue of Duty, Lance, Damsel of Mantel Elena
Paladin (Attached to Knights Errant)
/w Horse, Shield, Lance, Virtue of the Joust
Damsel (Attached to BSB Knights of the Realm)
/w Horse, Dispel Scroll x2
Damsel (Attached to Peasant Bowmen)
/w Dispel Scroll, Chalice of Malfleur
8 Knights Errant
/w FC, Errantry Banner
7 Knights of the Realm
/w FC, War Banner
8 Knights of the Realm
16 Peasant Bowmen
/w Skirmish, Braziers
3 Pegasus Knights
9 Grail Knights
Total: 1999 Points
It's been a blast, see you guys next month with some movement trays in hand.
Edit: You can't see him in the picture quite, but just off the edge of the full army shot, a certain Black Ark Corsair Hero sits unpainted. Things to come, things to come.

i have a question id it to late to join this200 pts a month? if not plz sign me up to wood elfs.
@ Lynta; yes, probably a bit late. I think this challenge finishes next month. There's a 1000 point Tale of Painters challenge on the way though, if you can wait a month.
Anyway, on to the business at hand.
For this month, I managed to finally finish the 10 Grave Guard I've had on the go for what seems an eternity, but is more likely to be two months. I actually based these guys as well, thinking it would be easier to base them before putting the shields on.
Grave Guard; 10 with full command (150 points)
Again, no army shot, because I'm slack. I promise I'll post one for next month, even if I don't get anything else painted!
(Note: I've attached the image below as well, in case the picture above disappears. My pictures seem to do that.)
I managed to paint ten dogs for sixty points, not a lot and I haven't got any pictures...
Up, up and away!
well i havent managed to do much this month, im not going to submit my waywatchers as they not completed to the standard i would like.
anyways, good luck to the rest of you
