Seeing as this is attracting some interest, here are the rules we're working to, as I understand them.
750 points, fully painted by 10 August, one month after WFB8 launches.
Then 250 points fully painted by each successive month. The dates for marking will be 14 September, 12 October, 16 November and 14 December. We play games on each date, with penalties for using unpainted toys. -1 to armour saves for any unpainted unit was the old skool Muppet way of doing this. Does this work for everyone?
Only 1,750 to aim for by Xmas, although if you're planning on bringing this army to Regarding Retribution in November, you may want to get ahead of yourself.
Dan, if this wasn't what you had in mind, feel free to change stuff.

- Unpainted minis give 25% more VPs (unless VP's are no longer used), further more they cannot claim objectives or count as scoring in any way shape or form. Depending on what the victory conditions are I may have to add to this list.
- A single photo of each army will be taken at each date. These photos will be added to a separate thread, which I will be creating nearer the time, this is to keep a single record of the armies as they grow.
- At least one mini battle summary is required each month based on a battle when the army is used. It does not need to be much more than a reflection on how the army operates and what your impressions were of the battle. I intent to write a full battle report each month and hope to be blogging regularly though I will not hold anyone else to this.
