Paint The Target

Have you snuggled up under a blanket on the couch yet? It’s Fall in the Northern Hemisphere, and your Target for September was to paint something with open hands or arms to welcome the new season, or maybe to harvest pumpkins, or maybe to start warmup exercises for NaNoWriMo. Whatever your motivation, you had your mission, and now it’s time to look at the end results, mailed in by those who stepped up to the plate and threw their hats into the ring to maybe – just maybe – win a prize.

PeteF’s Wold just wants to hug you all. He’s very affectionate.

TACpainting’s Intercessor Kreoss has his lance and shield in his hands, but his arms are cast wide open to showcase his chest Menofix. I don’t know if that’s more likely to intimidate, or to end up with his being harpooned.

Treville2001 is ready to take on Ironhead Fortress with his J.A.I.M.S.

Wallorspinis supplementing his J.A.I.M.S. with Balthazar Bamfist!

BenB has taken a break from his Grymkin, with the Ten Thunders’ Ohaguro Bettari

Night Goblins aren’t generally huggers, if only because they can rarely reach high enough. Fiendil doesn’t care.

Lonelymonk’s basement flooded, but a new tenant moved in with the floodwater. How exactly does one collect the rent from a Dracodile?

Miggy cracked open his Rail Raiders. My hair never did that. You know, back when I had hair. Le sigh.



With arms wide open, under the paint light, welcome to your desk, your paints are wai-ai-ting, your brush ain’t broken… September’s winner is Lonelymonk! Gratz, sir! Drop me an email your mailing address so I can send you a thing!


Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens are not our favorite seasonal things (as much as we like them). No, it’s time to get our spook on. Creepy stares, skull motifs, looming menace – everyone’s got their own idea of what it takes to strike fear into the hearts of their opponents. Maybe you’ve got a nasty undead monstrosity in your pile of unpainted models. Maybe you’re arachnophobic so you’ve been dodging painting that Arachnorok Spider. Maybe you’ve just been scared to take on non-metallic metals as a painting technique. Your challenge for October is to either face your fear, or get your scare on.

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