April showers may bring May flowers, but before that we get a new gallery of painted models and – as with every month – someone’s gonna get a prize mailed to them. For the month of March, participants were instructed to paint something big. No snotlings and gobbers here, I wanted to see titans of the battlefield, centerpiece models, things that dominate the landscape with their mere presence. Let’s see what we got!
From the desk of Wallorspin, which I’m sure is perpetually dappled in golden sunlight, Aeternae!
Okay, so 49’s models aren’t big, but they’re a clear reference to one of the biggest shows to stream in 2020.
Dicewraith decided to create his own Nurgle daemon, with plenty of bonus teeth and buboes.
Like a bat out of hell, Lonelymonk will be gone when the morning comes.
Like a turtle out of Wisconsin, Lostie Ben will be gone when the tide comes in.
Lostie Drew’s still on a Kingdom Death trip, with the Dragon Tyrant lording it over the lantern bearers.
One of the more amusing things about getting entries from Fiendil is the history lesson on the model, like this Char B1
Miggy Sawdust is on an MCP trip, with MODOK ready to go antiquing – Mental Organism Designed Only for Kitsch.
When it comes to big momma’s, NotThatOne has broken out the troglodytes with the Swamp Mother
5″ tall, the 54mm scale Chaos Knight was given to Prophaniti1978 in 2003. Glad it’s finally done!
Sean’s dragging a Rackham Wagon into the Iron Kingdoms.
Why does Tavis’ Megaladron think it’s okay to trample all that beautiful foliage?!?
When I was wondering what sort of decor TwoCopperJack had in his rec room, betentacled baboon monsters weren’t on the list. Demogorgon is a strange thing indeed.
KRAKATHOOM! Lighting splits the sky as thunder shakes the mountains themselves. Bunch o’ rocks tumble down revealing a vein of ore that twists and curls, not entirely unlike cursive writing. If you squint just right, it says Miggy!
Usual drill, email me your mailing address and we’ll get something on the way to you next time we’re at the post office.
As I sit here, my beloved is watching a medical drama behind me. Doctors saving lives under bright lights with all sorts of bleeping machines. Your April challenge is to lift those brushes and paint something that strikes with surgical Precision. Fine blades, sniper rifles, models that embody accuracy and skill. Bonus points if you completely ignore that and paint a medic or an apothecary.
Send in your pics of newly painted shinies to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
