Paint The Target

In like a lion, out like a slightly older lion! January’s done and we’ve had a whole month to paint shiny things and get our painter on.  January’s challenge was to paint models that were either new to your collection or for a new project that you were embarking on for 2017. People sent in pics, I wanna show you, and someone’s going to win something from the Lost Hemisphere Prize Pool! Let’s see who it is…

When you turn off the lights it’s less bright. When you sit around you get older. It’s a Dark Age! Oh, I’m hilarious… Pierce9 sent in his Air Caste. Do they smell like frangipani?

When you’re the Mother of Dragons, you have to wonder who’d have the audacity to sever and remove your lower torso and replace them with a plinth. Yaum, you have some ‘splainin’ to do!

The Dark Avengers beliefe in bare thighs, oversized weaponry and the skulls of your defeated foes. So does CarlP.

When your life is lacking in zoom zoom pew pew, sometimes you need to call in the fleet… Dropfleet Commander models from Shadowsword751, who I imagine is actually a 40K supertank with arms.

From zoom zoom pew pew to stomp stomp pew pew, NinjaSteve is feeling the might of the Empire with an AT-ST

Imagine being so messed up that you join the French Foreign Legion so that you can forget literally everything about you… at least, that’s what Warner Bros cartoons had me thinking the Foreign Legion was all about! Fiendil might have more input.

WEARING AN OCTOPUS FOR A HAT!!!!! That phrase has special meaning for me… DrQ’s Ika Clan Madoushi make me smile.

Lock up  your warjacks, hide your toasters – WesleyR’s Machine Wraith’s are about to drop some sick beats.

Hanzo! I see you! The Blind Swordsman doesn’t because… um… well, you see… he’s blind.. Dammit, Ranny128!

So you like Blood Bowl, you have a bunch of Trollkin models, and there’s no official Ogre team from GW yet… Big_D had an idea.

Dicewraith’s Broken Wing Painting apparently fixed these wings… the Storm Raptor is an enormous model!

MiguelF showed us his Superior Spidey last month, this month and now he’s bumped up the ranks! Spidey, Punisher and Daredevil may be able to keep Superior Spidey’s goons in line…

And finally, some Arena Rex! Sven and Hagal are ready to gladiate, thanks to the brushwork of AndrewM!


Okay, there are thirteen of you and I don’t have a d13, but Google has a random number generator, so I pusha da buttoon and… this month’s winner is Big_D! You know the drill, sir! Send me an address at and I’ll get something in the mail for you!


I’ve got two hands… We’re going to double-fist it for February. I want to see models wielding weapons in each hand! Gunslingers, sword-and-dagger fighters, wizards with a staff AND and bizarre magical trinket, armoured spacemans with guns and moar guns – take up arms, my friends, it’s time to DUAL WIELD!

Send in your pics of newly painted shinies to by Noon EST, February 26th. 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.

  1. I did know something about the Foreign Legion, but… I… um… forgot.

    (I’m going to have to do some bloody tenuous wordplay to get a dual wielding model out of the Legion project for next month…)

  2. Two-handers, eh? Shame I altered my Thyron, but there is that Banshee kit gathering dust…
