It’s a new month, it’s a new gallery of Target entries, and there’s even a brand new challenge at the end of the post. We’ve been doing this for a looooong time now, you think you’d be used to how this works, but just in case you’re a new visitor:
We’ve all got our “Piles of shame”, the models that we bought years ago and haven’t painted yet. It can be daunting, and knowing where to start is often the hardest part. Enter this post series. The first blog post of every month is Paint The Target. At the end of each post, a new Target is posted for the month: A thematic suggestion, a word or two, to give you some direction, maybe some inspiration. After that, the ball’s in your court: Paint a model that fits the theme.
How well it fits the theme is up to you. Your reasoning can be spurious as heck. The objective, more than anything else, is to get you painting.
When you’ve finished, send in an a pic of your model (instructions at the end of the post). Your model will appear in the gallery of the next Target post, and one participant – chosen at random – will receive a prize from the Lost Hemisphere Prize Pool. Yup, you paint a model, there’s a chance you’ll receive something new to paint.
July’s Target was “Swords to Ploughshares”. Models with swords, or models that have retired, gone back to the family farm or back to nature. Let’s wander through the gallery!
When we’re talking about farming being part of the Target this month, animal husbandry surely comes to mind. What the heck these Bayou Gremlins did to breed a monstrous, featherless rooster monster I have no idea, but that thing’s kinda horrifying. NotThatOne, you got some ‘splainin’ to do.
