Paint The Target

In the spirit of going big or going home, August’s Target was centerpiece models. Suffice to say, some of  you have, in fact, gone big. A decent centerpiece has a few different roles on the tabletop. One is to be the unbreakable center of your line, the monstrous crux on which your battle plan pivots. The other is to draw every ounce of your opponent’s attention, while your smaller, less noticeable models get the real work done. Another is just to look freaking cool, and I will always endorse this third point, because it’s so damn cool to see!

Dieson kicks open the door this month with giant, armor-plated feet. Scrapjack has evolved, and is clearly the star of the show here, especially with the way real estate values have climbed in recent years. Oh yeah, and Old Witch is there too…

Wallorspin put aside his yellow paint for once, and poured some purple into his Death Archon

From Doppelbock, a Warlord OT-34/85 Soviet tank. The O variant replaces the hull machinegun with a flamethrower, so naturally, Menoth approves.

Lonelymonk is set to take to the skies, dripping necrotic ichor as he does so, with Deneghra

And from Lostie Ben, one of the more visually impressive models from Games Workshop’s revamp of the vampires (finally!), we have Lauka Vai, Mother of Nightmares.

AUGUST WINNER!

Wallorspin strolls in out of the void between realities, a signifier of the end that awaits us all. Huzzah! … we think? 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.

NEXT CHALLENGE!

TBD.

We know, we know, this doesn’t help you plan your next painting focus, and for that we apologize. We’ve run a Target every month since… (checks folders), well, at least as far back as June 2014, but there’s something pretty big going on in Gdaybloke’s life right now, and until the dust settles we don’t for sure know how long it’s going to last. Until it’s resolved, we can’t make any promises about what’s going to be happening here on LH. We plan to be back and posting and stuff, but we can’t set a timeline rightnow.

We’ll be back with you as soon as we can. I guess, in the interim, try to complete a project that’s been sitting idle for awhile. We’d love to see what you’re able to work on during our absence, and we’ll still be posting on social media when able.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
