Video Game Inspired Cake Toppers

Video Game Inspired Cake Toppers
While Zombie survivors have still made up the majority of the cake toppers that I do, there have definitely been a nice rise in the number of cake toppers that express the bride and groom’s love of videogames. Here are a few examples. We’ll start out with the Steampunk Halo Spartans, and move from there:

Super Spy Cake Topper

Super Spy Cake Topper
I’ve been doing custom cake toppers for a long time for lots of couples that want something less traditional, but I have always been surprised that I haven’t had very many same gender couples. It just seemed that is a fairly large group that has been ignored by more traditional cake toppers for a long ...

Darklands Meloda

Darklands Meloda
Here is Meloda, from the Darklands range of minis. I generally think of Mierce as a manufacturer of big crazy monsters (and that is definitely a thing that they are- stay tuned, I’ve got another to show off soon). But here is one of their human characters. From their line, she is probably the least ...

Wedding Cake Topper survivors and zombies in combat

Wedding Cake Topper survivors and zombies in combat
The zombie survivor brides and grooms are definitely the most popular of the cake toppers that I make, and I really love it when I get a chance to do a whole set together for combat. They really feel complete to me when the whole zombie battling scene plays out on the top tier of ...

Reaper Miniatures enters the Chibi market

Chibi miniatures have been making a big splash in the gaming world ever since Soda Pop first showed off their Super Dungeon minis at Gencon. Since then, they’ve grown into a whole style of miniatures that strongly contradicts the Grim and/or Dark traditions that so many miniature lines follow. I mean, they’re just so dang ...

Nocturne

Nocturne
Here is my take on Super Dungeon’s Vampiric boss fight. I painted him as a practice for doing really harsh top down lighting- but I realized a little too late that I had basically decided to blend all of his areas from black to white. I worked on him for quite some time, before giving ...

Kissing Gamers

Kissing Gamers
The kissing gamers seems to have become one of the most popular poses I’ve done for our brides and grooms. It figures, I guess. They’re so cute, and they fit in well with even the most traditional of wedding cakes while still adding that extra personality. Here are a few I’ve done recently. Of late, ...

Austrican the Ogre

Austrican the Ogre
Here is my Austrican from Relic Knights. The largest of the Shattered Sword Paladins, this mini was definitely one of my favorites from the Kickstarter. I had a lot of fun with his face- the harsh lines gave me plenty of room to make high contrast areas that really pop. He really has the same ...

MMO Cake Topper

MMO Cake Topper
Here is a cake topper that I made to match some MMO characters. These make some of the more complex characters I’ve created, as video games tend to have lots of detail on their clothing and weaponry. And I love making the elf ears. Here is a picture.

Nethyrmaul the Undying

Nethyrmaul the Undying
This might be my favorite mini to come out of the first of Reaper’s Kickstarters (he does have to compete with the likes of Wyrmgear and a few other beauties). I decided to color him in green to help emphasize the red portions on him. I don’t think it shows in the pictures, but the ...
