Paint The Target

It’s April! Some of you got some good painting in throughout March, and it warms the cockles of my heart to share this month’s gallery. Like, seriously. The theme was warmth, after all, be it actual flame, stuff that’s hot or keeps someone warm, or even just warm colours. Some like it hot! Let’s take a peek…

Horgle Ironstrike remains one of my favourite blacksmiths ever. Sorry, smithing peeps I know in the SCA, but a noseless smith with flaming weapons and goggles? Dang! PeteF lay down some hot brush strokes on this one.

In the chill of the Gotham night, BigD’s Gotham Knight keeps warm under his coat.

Chadi – the loudest man in Warmachine – painted a unit of 7 models, but I cropped two out because they said mean things about his mom. As for the theme, dwarves work the forges to keep themselves warm, and it’s clearly melting the snow around their feet.

ChadS brings three Flesh Hounds. Does their mythos still include fire, or is it just blood? Either way, they’re red hot!

ChrisS believes in the cleaning power of long-barrel flamethrowers.

DrQ’s been visiting Crystalia and the Mistmourn Coast. The local trolls live in a semi-tropical climate, as evidenced by their attire.

Vroom! Vroom! Fiendil’s playing 7TV Apocalypse, with everyone being warm in their coats, one guy with a flamethrower, and I’m told the hear in the car works fine.

NotThatOne’s miners spend their time working underground when not playing Guild Ball. With all that machinery and such poor ventilation, they work up a heck of a sweat in the heat.

SimonS assures me he wasn’t drunk when he painted Stoker. Stoker himself makes no such promises.

Tim Simpson is a legend in our community. Even if you’ve never heard of him. I said so. His Greylord Adjunct is also super sweet.

Wallorspin’s Houseguard Thane may not be “warm” per his rules, but he’s actually wearing thermal underwear, and he’s painted in a nice warm yellow, so…

Last up, 49’s Morkanaught has a flame paintjob. What more do you want?!?


April showers may bring May flowers, but March brings… um… April tax returns? I dunno. Anyway, this month’s winner is WALLORSPIN!!!! Gratz, you win something from the LH Prize Pool! Send me an address at and I’ll get something in the mail for you!


Spring is sprung, the grass is risen; I wonder where the birdies is’n? It’s a time for rebirth in the natural world (in the Northern Hemisphere at least), so we’re going along those lines. Feathers, fur or fin works. Plant life? Why, there’s some really angry tree models out there. Animals models or models wearing animal parts, or even mechanical monstrosities themed after animalia (I’m looking at you, Clockatrice). Get painting!

Send in your pics of newly painted shinies to by Noon EST, April 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.
