Paint The Target

It’s December. The festive season descends upon us like an inevitable celestial wombat, cascading through the atmosphere with tidings of good will laced with anxiety as we try to figure out how to make all this work during a global pandemic. Still, there’s painting happening, and a bunch intrepid brush artists slapped paint on models and sent them in; it’s only fair that I show them to you, before we determine who’s won this month’s prize.

The Target for your November efforts was “Bullseye” – models that can hit one, models that are currently acting as one. Let’s see what slid off the painting tables…

It’s not easy being green. These gremlin bushwhackers are making the most of it though, thanks you a little help from NotThatOne.

Void Gates specialize in delivering assets to the battlefield with pinpoint accuracy. Or, if they’re PeteF’s, they manifest with bullseyes painted on them, and just constantly get shot off the table.

Prophaniti1979 has gone on crusade. Get it? Because it’s a Crusader? Pfft. I’m wasted here.

SeanM’s Weird Wendell is launching gremlins for Riot Quest. I mean, somebody’s got to, right?

In the far flung Cyriss galaxy, the Marcher Worlds have developed superior pink hair dye techniques, thanks to the alchemical hairstylist Horatio P Wallorspin.

Unsatisfied with a mere duffel bag, 49 added a trenchcoat to good ol’ Frank Castle in preparation for the cooler weather. So considerate.

Lostie Drew got himself a little too lost. Thankfully, there was a ranger on hand to guide him back to us.

When you’re a troupe of time-lost Frenchmen, it’s understandable if your kit isn’t immediately recognizable by other Konflikt 47 players. Plus side, if the beans you had for lunch are giving you trouble, your comrades have nothing to fear.

I was pretty excited to seen an entry from GM Bill, but now I’m wondering just what game he’s GM’ing with Big Nick here!

Not content to send in a single entry, Lonelymonk muscled through a whole bunch of Satyxis gunslingers

This is Sleepy Tom. Sleepy Tom doesn’t have time for this. Just let him shoot his bow, like KrrNiGit told him to, so he can get back to his nap.

Lostie Ben knows I love hats, but his Pathfinders may have taken it a bit too far. I man, the lower jaws too?

Nicia, conceptually, is one of my favorite Menites. I mean, she was, til she sold out and joined the Infernals. Moth2Paint made her pretty, but she’s still a traitor.

You’d think, what with his using the name MyEvilTwin, the painter would have given me some indication as to what I’m looking at here. I mean, we’re allegedly twins! Where’s the familial bond!?? Also, call mom. She misses you.

NOVEMBER WINNER!

All names were written carefully on pieces of pasta and then tossed into a soup tureen. Celery was added, along with onion, potato, couscous, and a selection of secret herbs and spices. The lettering bled right off the past, so while delicious, it didn’t help with determining a winner at all. Dice were employed, and this month’s winner is Moth2Paint!

Usual drill, email me your mailing address and we’ll get something on the way to you next time we’re at the post office.

DECEMBER CHALLENGE!

I thought about setting a festive challenge – winter themed, maybe red and green color schemes, things that fly as a reference to the reindeer/sleigh, industrial as a nod to the elves slaving away in the factory… er, I mean, workshop – but I couldn’t narrow it down to a favorite. As my gift to you, December’s theme is a nice, wide open Seasonal. Whatever aspect of the season inspires you, run with it. Personally I think I’ll try my hand at something that flies… we’ll see.

Send in your pics of newly painted shinies to submissions@losthemisphere.com by Noon EST, December28th. 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.
