Paint The Target

January’s target was to unleash the beast, to tap into your wilder side, to get feral. Be it literal monsters, or monsters masquerading as something more civilized. It never even occurred to me when I set the target that it’d line up beautifully with GW’s update to the Gloomspite Gitz and all their Squiggs… Let’s brush our fangs and see what other entries we got!

Fiendil’s Squig herd are a timely reminder to attend a dental checkup. Also, for that one guy in the front row, a good moisturizer goes a long way…

49 dials back to a classic with Frazetta’s Death Dealer, an iconic, brutal fantasy figure.

Dr Q frankenstein’d his own catman! Mr Whiskers wants to know why his food bowl is half empty…

MarkS  is ready to burn rubber… or at least, since bacon… with his Road Hogs!

NotThatOne continues to not be that one. His squigs, however, are in all certainty.

Dead yet not, skin sloughs off the soul slave as Lonelymonk swears loyalty to the Blindwater Congregation

Dreadball may not have taken off locally, but at least that means I don’t have to worry about Patches’ orcs punching my nuts!

PeteF howls your name to the wind! Or his War Wolf does, at least. Aroooo!

Prophaniti1978 sent in a Leopard. Tank. A Leopard tank.

Yeah, okay, a leopard is an animal, I’ll allow it…

What is best in life? Warm shoup, Good Dentishtry,Shoft lavatory paper. Wait, that’s Cohen the Barbarian… Seth’s Conan the Barbarian is a little more spry than Terry Pratchett’s octagenarian hero.


Rawr… the Nothing approaches, the Gmork launches from its cave and sinks its teeth into… LONELYMONK!!!!! Gratz, you win something from the LH Prize Pool! Send me an address at and I’ll get something in the mail for you!


Traditionally around these parts February’s hallmark is Valentines Day. I mean, there’s also the Superbowl, Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk Day, Stuffed Mushroom Day, and here in Canada we have Family Day too, but Valentines is probably the best known. Valentines is about all that schmoopsy romance stuff, but can also be construed about partnerships. Your challenge for February is to paint partners. Duos, trios, models that work together. Lovers, friends, conjoined twins, symbiotic abominations or co-workers. Metaphorically joined at the hip or forced to work together as an artillery team, whatever. Pair up, painters!

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.

    I’ll see what I can crank out for Feb. Sorry to have to resort to a terrible pun to get this months challenge done!

    I had Brighid & Caul on the table… didn’t get enough done to finish them. Though MiniCrate Alexia & the Risen got finished in time for the PDX Open this weekend.
