Paint The Target

Ah, a new month, a new Target gallery… I wasn’t sure how much participation we’d see this month, but I’m glad to see we didn’t come up empty handed.

GET IT? EMPTY HANDED? Because this month’s challenge was to showcase models with not holding any weapons! HAH! I slay me…


Alright, on with the show…

I encourage creative interpretation of the monthly targets, but Lord Bubonicus just skipped the empty hands thing entirely by painting models that had no hands at all. I’m sure Cyriss would be pleased with his Servitors and Objective Marker.

ShadowSword751′ Succubus is technically holding intangible magic. Blue light forming – by is light a particle or a wave? Quick, bring in the physicists!

Treville2001’s shiny new Devastator is empty handed, with its clamshell steel shields strapped to the back of its arms.

Yes, yes, 49’s painted a bunch of gun toting lunatics here, but Joker’s just holding his walking stick, prescribed by a physician – possibly Dr Zsasz – to help with his mobility after that incident with the dachshund and the roto-rooter.

Corporate Security Units are the very best at concealing high definition cameras in their briefcases. I’m told it’s definitely not a hidden submachine gun. Carl said so.

DarkLegacy is leaving a rusty legacy of bashed warjacks in his wake. I mean, granted, that’s what the Ghordson Basher is for, but still…

Do ghosts technically have hands, or just ectoplasmic  extrusions? I checked… there’s at least one ghost on each of these bases that has empty hands, so Dicewraith’s entry is allowed.

Diseon’s Gorax don’t need to no weapons! Wait, that’s a double negative… so he does need a weapon? I’m not convinced.

We end with Dr Q’s Nocturne, who clearly ramped up the wattage on his flashlight medallion. Dare you face the creatures of the night?


When shoving weasels down your trousers with little numbered vests on them so that you can choose a winner based on which escapes first, it’s important to remember to wear a cup. Ouch. This month’s winner is: 49! Send me an address at and I’ll get something in the mail for you!



April showers bring May flowers, but I’m pretty sure most of you don’t actually have floral prints on your armour. Nevertheless, Spring is a thing in the Northern Hemisphere, and Mother Nature is doing her thing. April’s challenge is GREEN THUMBS. We either want models with greens somewhere in the scheme or models with a ‘natural’ feel. Heck, paint me some treemen and satisfy the criteria from all angles!

Send in your pics of newly painted shinies to by Noon EST, April 28th. Deadline is deadline, people. Once more, one random participant will receive a little somethin’ somethin’ in the mail. You want somethin’? You gotta submit! Don’t forget to include your online handle! Oh, and if you can make the pics attachments to the emails rather than inline, that’d help me on the formatting end.

    You’ve got two entries listed as belonging to 49 – but one of them is my Cyriss!

      Fixed, sorry about that. The Joker models were the actual winners, but toss me your address and I’ll send you a consolation prize 😛

        Hah! It’s alright, don’t worry about it 🙂 Actually managing to get something painted is enough of a prize for me.
