Paint the Target: September Results, October Challenge

Ah, September… the first of the -ber months, it’s when those of us in the Northern Hemisphere start contemplating packing away our shorts in favour of jeans, and the pumpkin spice everything seems to suddenly appear, much to my consternation. Who the heck decided pumpkin was a dessert, or something to be added to beverages? Seriously, what’s wrong with you people??
Bah. September’s challenge was to think small…

Dicewraith painted not one, not two, but six little Razor Boars. That’s how he rolls, now with extra bacon.

From NotThatOne, the duo Muggs and Krump, doughty little sidekicks of Grim Angus.

Lonelymonk tried to channel his inner Dicewraith and knock out a bunch of models. Two Scarab Packs? He so Skorney…

From Valrus we trip over Scratch, Cypher for the Relic Knight Kisa!

KevBryant, meanwhile, gets his Guild Ball on with the Brewer’s Guild mascot Scum.

Tonio’s beautiful work is always a delight to share. His Sebastian Cross (SDE Version) is adorbs.

Continuing to spread across game lines, a Skink Priest made its way to my inbox from Placid Platypus


I myself painted Shadow Mode Candy… and yes, that pink splodge next to her eye has been cleaned up now that I know it exists…

Not even belonging to any particular game, the “Warfare Wombat”, who’s definitely not Rocket Raccoon because that would be copyright infringement, came from Gaspy’s painting desk.


From Ninja Steve, SDE’s Princess Emerald is ready to pop some caps. She likes cream soda, what can I say.

Finally, you can call it a “Mocking Beast” all you want, but you know as well as I do that ChrisCryx sent in a Mimic.


I do love this bit… names in a hat, dice bouncing off the table, the wheel spinning, morse code and semaphore echoing around the Gdaycave until we come up with a winner… and this month’s participation prize goes to: Holy Crap, it’s KevBryant! Who let him in on this business? Madness, I swear!  You know what to do, buddy! Send me that address!


September’s challenge is be a SHIELDBEARER. In honour of the new season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., I want to see models with shields or shield-like effects. A force field, a carapace rule, whatever – Show Me Your Shield.

Send in your pics of new shinies to by Noon, October 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 ;)
