[Paint the Target] March 2014 Results!

Month 3 is behind us and with it another Target down!

In march the target was to paint a model with a bladed implement of death.  Which pretty much meant anything that wasn’t a gun.

Let see what you all came up with!

[POLL] Help! I need painting competition model ideas! [UPDATE]

[UPDATE 3/26: I called an audible and picked up a Dark Eldar Raider!  More details to come!]

This year one of my painting resolutions was to enter a painting competition.  Like a full blown one.  This year’s goal is going to be entering in a model into my local convention, the Nova Open’s Capitol Palette.

[Paint the Target] February 2014 Results!

So this post is a little late.  March 1st happens to be on a Saturday and even though that’s the day I’m composing this results posts, it actually won’t post until March 3rd.  Why? Saturdays are historically the lowest traffic days and I want to make sure as many eyeballs see your guys amazing stuff!

This month, you actually had the option of three targets:

  • A female model
  • A model using some kind of archery
  • A model with a predominately red scheme

So away we go!  Again in no particular order…

[Paint the Target] January 2014 Results!

Welcome to the first results post of the 2014 Paint the Target season!

(I’m working on getting a better banner image…)

A number of you sent in your results this month (more than I was expecting in all honesty), with the target being painting a model you received over the past holidays.

Let’s get right into it shall we?

[Paint the Target] Now with prizes, courtesy of Secret Weapon Miniatures! [UPDATED]

Coming up on the heels of the first deadline for the January Paint the Target (tomorrow!), I’m working with Secret Weapon Miniatures to bring you guys some prize draws!

I’ll have more info when the January results posts goes up, but the tentative plan is to have prize draws every quarter (March, June, September, December).


So the tentative plan for the moment is that there will be four (4) drawings, one at the end of each quarter (March, June, September, December).  the drawings will be random, but each painted target during that quarter grants you an entry (so paint 3 monthly targets in a quarter, you’ll have 3 entries, miss a month and you’ll have 2 entries, etc).  Sorry my non-US brethren, but for the moment it’s only going to be for US folks until I get a handle on shipping and whatnot.

Plarzoid has also graciously donated some very useful widgets as prize support!

Introducing Paint the Target in 2014! Enter Now!

It’s officially 2014, and that means resolutions.

Many a hobbyist starts the year, bright eyed and eager to attack that backlog of projects that continuously seems to build and  build until it finally consumes them and their loved ones.

NAY I SAY TO THEE IN 2014!  We shall fight back against the  rising tide of metal and plastic!

For 2014, I’d like to bring back arguably one of my favorite monthly features of the (now defunct) Lost Hemisphere blog: PAINT THE TARGET!

Stop making those lofty New Year Resolutions and Paint pledges you can’t keep.  Let’s take it chunk by chunk!

RULES: At the beginning of each month, I give you a target (for instance, paint a model with a ranged attack), you paint said target.  Email me pics by the end of the month and I’ll make a big gallery for all to see.  Random prize draws may also be had every once in awhile.  I’ll have to check my coffers first though…

Although my readership is mostly Warmachine/Hordes related, I’m opening this up to any game.  Bring on those Infinity, Malifaux, or 40K models as well!


I do believe Cryx-mas has recently come and gone…For the first challenge, an easy one:

Paint a model you received as a gift over this past holiday.


(This last bit I’m cribbing from LH)
