I'm confused. What does "Joker" mean? And is this like the weekly painting pledge?

Nah, its about painting an army over a year. This way you'll probably get an army done ^^
you use a 'joker' when you didn't finish your pledge (10% of total army every month). You only have 2 jokers so bleh^^

Norse, when will you update? ^^

Still doesn't make a lot of sense to me. :|

So do you just post at the end of a month saying "this is what I painted" or do I make a pledge to paint X amount of models?

As I mentioned in my own painting blog for this year, I didn't paint anything for the month of September. Fortunately I had time to assemble all of the models that I had still in boxes and I am going to paint enough stuff this month. 1 joker used.
Also, Norsehawk, are you going to change the points that each one has painted? They look the same as the did the previous month?
So far:

Ogre Kingdoms: planning

Orks: about 7000 points

@Nikolas: He will update the list, the list is the same as last month. But I dunno when he'll update it.

@Canihazgauss: I think you're also too late to sign up. everyone at the start says "i am going to paint X amount of points in models for an army". Every month you have to do 10% of it and if you can't you use a joker = 1 month free off, but next month you need it done + the amount needed for the current month.

Sorry for not getting everything updated yet, I will get to it in the morning. I am going to college for an education degree, and as of now I am going to college full time and spending any weekdays that I have off in classrooms observing as well.

As to people who want to sign up now, yes you can, but you are going to have to paint like a daemon to catch up. You are already down 2 jokers, remember, you can earn a joker back by painting 20% of your army points for that month.

I painted up 11 Gun Drones, and 1 Marker Drone. 2 of the Gun Drones completed a Piranha. That's 85 points for the Piranha, and 96 for a Squad of 8 Gun Drones. The last two drones - 1 Gun and 1 Marker - are going to be Wargear for something, likely a Stealth Team.

That's a grand total of 401 Points to date. I've got my last Tau Joker back :D
