I'll be continuing both my Sons of Horus and Necron armies, probably with more emphasis on the SoH. Let's get this shit started!

What are the rules on repainting models, in the same colour scheme, but better? And do allied forces count as separate army?

Might enter it this year, but might not be able to.

Great shout on the new rules Humakt!

The ability to switch between armies will help me stay motivated! Now just need to limit myself to 2

I'll see what others are painting before making my final shout but guessing one of mine will be a marine army.

I look forward to the start of the challenge!

I'll definitely join, i do really need to get my IG:Helghast done, rather than 'oh i've got a game, well i've got 6 days to convert and paint just over 100 models, lets do this!' and never get it done.

I'm in. I just have to decide which two armies between my SWs, Flames of War Germans, or, depending on the new codex, some shiney new Tau.

I second the shout about allies? DO they count as a seperate army even if clearly modelled to be allies, eg: imperial guard made up from Gorkamorka Digga models to ally with my orks?
Also in a similar veign where do counts as units stand? For example i have a unit planned for my orks of tinboys, i planned to use the rules for thousand sons squads to represent them in apocalyse games, likewise i was plannign a "Giant squig and babies" using the tervigon rules.
I probably won;t get these units ready in time but it's good to know one way or another.

I'm in again this year, Probably still orks and i'll use either my inquisitor warband or space marines as my second army.

Maybe we should say that each 40k army can have 1 (and only 1) ally codex, but you need to have a ratio of at least 2 to 1 army to ally?

That way if you choose space marines you could paint a terminator squad, a tactical squad then a Guardsman squad?

May require self management so may be best to just say that you need more units in your primary army than allies?

I am in. High Elves and Bretonnians for me. I can do the Elves for the whole challenge, but I might want to mix it up a couple times to keep motivated.

Thanks for starting this up Humakt!
