Y'all know the drill. Two days to vote on next month's theme. Your options for August are:


Mastermind: Intellect is a deadly weapon, whether put to work forging a masterful strategy, developing peerless technology or bent towards the study of supernatural and magical forces. Your entry should feature models famed for their mental prowess.

Upgrade: From a questing hero picking up a magic blade to a kitted-out specialist toting the very beast gear to a creature fearsomely enhanced by technology or arcane science, your entry should feature models whose equipment or nature gives them greater capability than their peers.

Unlikely Hero. From diminutive halflings destroying rings of power to farmboys taking down a devastatibg superweapon, the greatest heroes often come from the most humble origins. Whether written in fiction or in their own exploits on the tabletop, your entry should feature models with a similar tale of success in the face of impossible odds. ,

Death From Above: Dragons or dogfighters, jetpacks or wings, many individuals and creatures do their most deadly work from on high. Your entry should feature such airborne models.

I’d have to dig for an unlikely hero. The rest are easy.

These are all good themes, but I have something in the queue which fits "mastermind", so I went with that.

Ditto, but with "Death From Above". Kind of wish I hadn't painted storm guardians this month, or they could be my 'unlikely heroes' for next month - they are much maligned as being useless, after all.

I went for death from above just for something different. Not because I recently picked up an Egrimm Van Horstmann on eBay. That had nothing to do with it.

Death from Above is feeling too specific, but I could find something for any of the others... going with Mastermind for my vote.

Choosing Death from Above. It is an excellent excuse to paint my Suppressors from Shadowspear.

If you needed to stretch death from above, you could probably work in something that delivers death onto people’s heads. Archers shooting hails of arrows, artillery, orbital bombardment, that sort of thing. Less with the wings and jet packs, but still stuff you want a solid roof above you for.

I think if it goes this route, I'll order another box of Bullgryns: quick to build, easy to paint, and fun to shove out of Valkyries!

It's neck and neck. I have Daemon Magnus primed and ready so I guess he's relevant to both..

The correct response is “Challenge Accepted”

(Not that some of us pose much of a challenge, but we all do the best we can. One of the points to this whole thing)

Indeed! Honestly if I can even just inspire a few people to chase those painting goals and ideals a little further than they might otherwise, then I'm happy.

Mastermind edges it with a single vote! Can't remember the last poll that close across three entries!

Nevelon will kindly be running this round, though I will still be around to answer any rules queries ect,

I think I might do something completely different for a change. I've had reaper's Mr Grimm sat in a blister for years doing nothing. He looks like he's masterminding some scheme or other.

Holy crap, more daemon primarchs... Well, I think I'll do the only (living) mortal mind who can possibly challenge them, then. Eldrad it is, this month.

Now I've said that, I'll likely have a new born this month, so I might have to choose a smaller project
