When do we post our lists? I will make a decision by then.

Also, wanted to get everyone's opinion on something, I thought this up while laying bed last night. What if every month we had a theme to it. Like January is the starting, lists, army built etc. February is hero's for 40K and Fantasy and FoW can be commanders. March is troop, you paint a unit of troops and so on.... Would this help people more or be a pain? No rules saying you have to follow it.

This is what you think about in bed at night? :D

I think it would be fun, but may be too constricting for people just getting started or like me, finishing an army. If I knew up front what all the months would be I could adjust to meet the topics as best i could.

Now that I think about it, if it went along the lines of what you need to compete it might be good for folks just starting an army to get the right units (or most likely to use units) done first...so, more I think about it I like it.

The one problem I see with your themed months is from what you wrote, January would be an automatic joker month... Other than that, I like it. From a 40k perspective, I definitely support the month 1: commander, month 2: troops idea to start the army. Also, month 10 should be that one unit you think looks really cool and want as a center piece for your army, mine being my hellhound "Flame of Fury" that I want to build with a fire patter along the sides :) Hope it works out for everyone, though.

yeah i like that idea, i find a schedule helps, eg i can paint up my artillery in a certain month.

Just a note ill be aiming for 3000 point of germans but for fow its a bit excessive so ill be filling out with unpainted brits.

It's not to late for me to sign up for 3000 points of Dark Eldar, right?
