Relic Knights has a new Kickstarter

Ok, this time of year must be Kickstarter season. Sodapop Miniatures has just started up a new Kickstarter to turn their Relic Knights line into a full game. The major cost their hoping to use this for is turning their existing resin and metal line into affordable plastics. It seems like everyone is turning to ...

It’s not always about the zombies

It's not always about the zombies
Most of my clients who want cake toppers look at the collection of zombies and zombie survivors and say “I’d like something like that.” Which is fine. I love zombies too. But here’s a cake topper that I finished fairly recently. Before sending it out to its permanent home, I showed it to a friend ...

Reaper Bones Kickstarter

Anyone who wasn’t convinced that Kickstarter and Indiegogo had changed miniatures gaming with Zombicide, OGRE and Sedition War, well… you’re about to see one that hits home for more people. Reaper Miniatures, the Texas based miniatures company, has started up a campaign to accelerate funding on their new Bones line. Reaper Bones miniatures are re-casts ...

Sodapop Posts up Steampunk Mario

Ok, they originally called him a Dwarven Spelunker, and now they’re calling him a Starguild Sapper. It doesn’t matter, since I’m either going to call him Mario, Luigi or Wario depending on what color I paint him. And I’ve been waiting to see a good pic of this mini for almost a year, so he’s ...

Couples vs. Zombies
You know, back when I first started making wedding cake toppers, I really had no idea how many people there were out there who, like me, think that fighting zombies off with your true love sounds like a great idea. Here are a few of the full dioramas of zombie fighters that I’ve created recently: ...

Alien Dungeon shows off their largest mini yet

Ok, Alien Dungeon right now is showing us some things they’re putting together for Fanticide (a game developed by several talented former Games Workshop developers including Andy Chambers and Rick Priestly).

Privateer Press has the extreme sculpt we’ve waited so long for

I’m personally quite a fan of Privateer Press’ Extreme line. They take some of the most iconic warbeasts and warjacks and hand them over to Jason Hendricks to create a larger and crazier version. They’ve released them pretty slowly- about one a year for the past six years or so. This year’s addition might be ...

For anyone whose interested, I did an interview with John Gordon of Praetorian 77th. I’ve painted quite a few Praetorians for John over the years, and I’m always a little amazed when he gets photos of them all together. Here is a link to the interview.
