Lo! Monster May(hem) 2024 Doth Approach!

Venom Troll from Monster May(hem) 2022

It’s only a few more days to the start of my sixth annual Monster May(hem) Painting Challenge! Do you have your monsters picked out yet?

Does the Alien Queen count as a monster? You bet!

What is Monster May(hem)? Why, it’s the month you paint monsters, of course. Any monster will do, although it should be a proper MONSTER, something big and mean. I mean something truly beastly; like a cockatrice or a byakhee or a giant, mutated zombie bear. Your monster(s) doesn’t have to be strictly a fantasy miniature, and it may be any scale and from any manufacturer. I will link to your stuff throughout the month, and (if it’s not there already) add your blog/website/social media to the blogroll on the side! If you don’t have a site of your own and still want to participate, I’ll happily host your pictures here and ensure you get proper attribution!

How many monsters you paint is up to you. The minimum is one, of course; but feel free to do as many as you like. The only caveat is that they get painted sometime in May.

But wait! There’s more! 2024 is also the Year of the Dragon, and in celebration of my nonexistent Chinese heritage I am hosting yet ANOTHER painting challenge all year long. You guessed it! It involves painting at least one dragon over the course of the year. Dragons are monsters, so if you paint a dragon miniature in May, it counts for BOTH challenges!!

So, who is down for some Monster May(hem)???

    Of course I’m in Keith, and have already been drumming up more participants for you as well. As for getting a Dragon done in the month as well, we’ll have to see how far I get ! LOL

    I’ll definitely join again! Got a Brutgoth from Shieldwolf Miniatures already assembled and primed, it’s been sitting on my shelf for a few years now, haha 😀

    I was going to paint up my colossal skeleton last year, but it didn’t make the cut. I’ll have to look through my pile of opportunity to see what else I can paint up.

    Would be delighted to take a break from Napoleonics and Space Marines for a month, so please count me in if I may join in the monstrous machinations..?
