Paint The Target

DID YOU GET ALL THE CANDY?!?!? Halloween has come and gone, and the restless spirits have moved back beyond the veil, but a few of you valiantly applied brush to model this month, marking the season with models that scared you, scared your opponents, or maybe even just required painting techniques that gave you the willies. The gallery is short this month, but there’s some definite spook.

Lost pal Ben’s been working on his Malifaux, and the Pale Rider wants to know if you have any spare apples. His horse is feeling peckish…

The Cygnaran Stormhost is normally a welcome sight through the Mortal Realms, but when you think about it – an army at the command of a distant deity keen to wipe out a lot of the beings in the realms, where every one of them you defeat is “reforged” and just comes back to swing a hammer at you again, it’s disconcerting as heck. Plus side, Gramut has mounted these guys on some super schmexy Dragon Forge bases.

Every the prolific painter, Lonelymonk decided to just knock out the entirety of the Necromancer expansion for Widower’s Wood. You know, no big deal, just 20 odd undead gribblies.

Luke Skywalker terrifies poor, defenseless Stormtrooper. Sure, they’ve got armour, but a lightsaber doesn’t care about that! Miggy Sawdust embraced the hobby aspect of this month’s challenge, dipping his toes into OSL with the lightsaber blade and trying to up his face painting game. Good show, old chap!

Legendary Canadian teen icon Robin Sparkles sang “Let’s go to the mall”. I’m pretty certain the mall didn’t have an enormous,tooth-filled maw surrounded by tentacles, lashing out and grabbing victims that, really, just wanted to go to Old Navy and get an affordable pair of jeans. As the painter, Sean may be responsible for the slump in sales at the local mall.

I knew we could rely on Lostie Drew to give us a Kingdom Death model… and let’s face it, coming across the rhino/baby/anglerfish that is the Gorm is enough to make anyone soil their underoos while simultaneously tossing their cookies.


With only a handful of entries, each participant has a solid chance of taking home this month’s prize! As the last of the Halloween spirits slide back into the void, I call out “Pick a number from 1 to 6!” and a very spooky voice whispers into my subconscious “Twooooooo”. This month’s winner is Gramut! Send me a mailing address, sir!


We’re past October and not yet into the end of year holiday season. That doesn’t mean that November has to go quietly though. I say thee nay! November deserves to make an impact too! Your theme for November is BOOM! Stuff that explodes! Stuff that can cause detonations! Models with hair that looks like they shoved a knife in a power socket! (Don’t do that at home, kids). Grenades! Missiles! Fireballs! Heck, even Chromatic Orb can explode!

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