Last month had until the 14th so probably until around then before you need to have posted pics so you have just under a week going by that so paint paint paint! :)

I should be posting my 2nd update tomorrow for my dark Angels, putting the finishing touches on a model and he's coming out pretty well, needs some more detail work however.

Good news! I've got nearly 400 points of 'Crons finished... just need to base them, and install blue rods. Once that's done, I'll have this month completed plus a joker back on that army :)

I might go nuts painting my Tau this week... there's a 40K tourney coming up this week I may field them in, since I don't have a large enough Ork army, and just don't really want to play Necrons right now.

Ok, Here is my Dark Angels update for this month.

Half Points on Belial (65 points) Thunder Hammer/Stormshield
Conversions: Forgeworld Dark Angels Right Shoulderpad, and a *few* purity seals. I am only doing half points since there is a lot more work I want to put into him to get a quality paint job so I will be finishing him up next month along with either full points on a Chappy or half points since I want my HQ choices to really stand out.

With Last month's points, I am now at 320 points for my army out of 1500 so I am on track to get them done in time with no Jokers used.

On to the pics!

Still to do, lots... The skin needs a lot of work as does the respirator on his head, the skulls need some work, the sword and shield as well as the robes and rock on the back pole needs some work, basing, the scrolls hanging from the belt and the skull on the base.

I need to also practice a ton and eventually do the script on the scrolls, but I know if I do it now it would end in abject failure.

I have to say, I do like the army painter bone colored primer that is color matched to bleached bone, it makes deathwing a lot easier to get started.

Man...disappointment here as I'm playing my 2nd joker. It's good to be busy with work but it kills my desire to break out the paints when I get home late. I've been trying to schedule a little time at our LGS so maybe I can pull off this next month and get on a bit of a roll. Especially with the weather turning, at least there's less reason to be playing outside.

I'll do better!

I just completed painting and Basing Shas'o R'Myr's Battlesuit, at 160 points. Adding in the Tau Ethereal at 60 points, I'm now at 220 points of Tau. I'll get photos up soon (we're reorganizing the office right now, so the photo studio is unavailable).

That means I got my 100 points for September done, and earned back one Joker for my Tau :D

For Necrons, I've now got 7 Immortals about 95% done - they just need Rods in the Gauss Blasters, and basing. That's 196 points, which means I'm done my September chunk of my Necrons - no Jokers back there though. I've got basecoats done on another 6 Immortals, so I'm on my way for October.

I'll post photos as soon as I can (in my own thread, of course).

Running Totals:
Tau: 220 / 1000 (22%)
Necrons: 196 / 2000 (10%)

I'm aware it's now October, but I did the majority of the painting in September... plus I'm already out of Jokers, so if I didn't post them as September models, I'd have played Jokers 3 months in a row and would have just had to cancel out completely.
