Dressed Down grooms

Dressed Down grooms
The tuxedo is definitely wonderful apparel, but it isn’t always suited to every situation. As an example, here are some cake toppers I’ve done with less formal wear for the grooms:

Ar Finel

Ar Finel
This Studio McVey mini was quite intimidating to paint. I am always in awe of the sculpting talent of Jacques Alexandre Gillois, but sometimes the details he’s able to pull off are so very tiny. And the casting was so crisp. Honestly, she’s a wonderful example for the superiority of resin for detailed miniature casting. ...

Super Dungeon Pumpkin Patch

Super Dungeon Pumpkin Patch
Well, I’ve been spending quite a bit of my hobby time with Super Dungeon Explore minis, and I’ve got a few more to show off. My wife painted up her coven witch and skull bats first, so I felt that I needed to come up with something different for them. I decided that I preferred ...

Pulp City new edition on Kickstarter

Pulp City new edition on Kickstarter
For those of you who haven’t seen them before, Pulp City has a pretty groovy range of super hero minis. They’ve been around for quite a while, and really have some of the best range of supers out there. They also fit in well with the super heroes from Reaper’s Chronoscope range- for example: And ...

Gamers make great spouses

Gamers make great spouses
I’ve had quite a few cake toppers over time that express a couple’s interests in videogames. And I’d like to share a few with you. We’ll start out with one where she’s got the upper hand against a zombie horde: And there’s a design that I’ve started calling kissing gamers. We have quite a bit ...

Fairy Riding a Turtle

Fairy Riding a Turtle
This is a mini that started life as a resin statue. I’ve done a few of these, and I find that they can turn out pretty nice. For the record, the original simply has a bronze colored drybrush on it to create a sort of patina look. I also had to do a little re-sculpting ...

Charsaug, Colossal Magma Dragon

A few years ago, I decided to run an Iron Kingdoms D20 campaign in which our characters were all epic giants (from Bemoth) who were fighting against the godlike dragons that the world features. It took me a while to find dragon minis that were big enough to be IK dragons- they’re all larger than ...

Mega Man Miniatures Board Game on Kickstarter

Ok, I’m a huge fan of the Chibi miniatures that we’ve been seeing from Soda Pop and Impact! I really love painting them up- the style is so new and refreshing. So, I’ve been excited every time I’ve seen a preview of the Mega Man miniatures from Jasco. Well, they’re done with those previews, and ...

Blood Bowl Minotaur Conversion

Blood Bowl Minotaur Conversion
Here is a Games Workshop Minotaur mini that I converted to play Blood Bowl. The colors match the rest of the Chaos team he plays with. Here he is:

Swords at weddings/in the Zombie Apocalyspe

Swords at weddings/in the Zombie Apocalyspe
The theme today seems to be swords. I have a few friends who had swords at their weddings (it is traditional to arm the best man, to warn off would be kidnappers). Unfortunately, they were all married before I started making cake toppers. There are so many different kinds of swords one could bring (either ...
