Ok, your army lists are in, so here is what everyone is painting! Note that I've checked the points and it all works out roughly right here. We're aiming for about 500 cos I know wargear and equipment can vary prices and thus how much you have to paint. As long as everything looks reasonable in the list, I will just say what models you are painting here. Do note however, that if you, for instance, claim that each guardsmen in your army has frags, kraks, meltabombs, pistols, close combat weapons, personal vox kits and re-breathers, a canteen, a tent, enough styrcine to kill a bull elephant, full campfire equipment, a bull elephant, camo netting sufficient to cover a baneblade and a flashlight (aka lasgun) and thus you only need to paint 4 infantry this month, I will make this contest WYSIWYG ;oP
So here we are, what needs to be painted in November (or by the 7th December for a reduced score)
5 man command squad including medic and power fist
5 man command squad including missile launcher
2 x 10 man squads including missile launcher
2 x 6 man heavy squads including 3 lascannons
1 Commander with 2 drones
2 Crisis suits with 2 drones
10 Fire Warriors
1 Winged Daemon Prince
10 Chosen, including Power Fist, 2 power weapons, and mark of slaanesh
2 x 12 Ork Boyz including Nob with Power Klaw
2 x Truk with red paint job and wrecking ball
So, as expected, the two horde armies face a much bigger task than the elite forces. Chris has gone for a good starting core to his army. Ken has also gone for a nice core start, with a bit of heavy support for shits and giggles. I have gone for a couple of core units complimented by more fast movers for what I plan to be a speed freaks army. And Rich has gone for an interesting addition to his Tzentch forces with a hard hitting Slaaneshi combat squad.
Good luck with the challenge, and gentlemen, start your brushes...
