Easter Gremlins from Wyrd

Ok, the guys over at Wyrd miniatures have been smoking something strong this time, and what they’ve come up with is some special minis just in time for Easter: It turns out that Easter minis can be pretty awesome. And why let Scibor have all the fun?

Cake toppers that go together

Cake toppers that go together
Here’s one of the latest cake toppers that I’ve created.  This set is meant to go on different levels of a tiered cake, hence the bride and groom are looking down (and aiming) at the zombies.    

Privateer Press posts first Colossal 360

Privateer Press has just posted the first 360 for one of their Colossals, along with their gallery photo and the price they’re projecting for it. I’m a little surprised to see that a colossal comes with some little mechanikal solos.  I suspect that they’ll arc lightning back and forth to the stormwall. The price is ...

Caverns of Roxor

Ok, my last two posts were Super Dungeon related, so I kind of thought that maybe I should write about something else. Then, Sodapop unveiled their SDE expansion at GAMA. Well, we don’t actually know what any of this means (all we have is photos of the boxes, and the minis they were showing off ...

Fur Effect

Fur Effect
A fur effect essentially means adding texture to a flat surface. There are plenty of minis of animals that use non-textured surfaces to depict areas where fur or hair would be short (horses, for example). Adding texture to these surfaces can make a mini quite a bit more dynamic. For example: To attain this effect, ...

Angry Bear! (it must be exclaimed) 1

Angry Bear!  (it must be exclaimed)
Ok, I knew I had to get a copy of Super Dungeon Explore when I saw the Angry Bear mini. One thing about Super Dungeon Explore minis is that they’re not as detailed as many lines. It is actually kind of like having a blank pallet in front of me, and I could do anything ...

Brass Scorpion- with as much freehand as I could cram onto it.
Here’s a Brass Scorpion that I did for a commission a little while ago. I really enjoyed doing all kinds of crazy freehand and filling those panels. Filling them with grotesque images that would please Khorne was really quite a bit of fun, and worked well with the theme that the mini already has going ...

Mud Splatter

Mud Splatter
An important part of making your miniatures look unique is to apply wear and tear. With a lot of minis, this includes things like battle damage scratches and such. With some minis, especially tanks, I find there is a lot of depth that can be added by simply adding a little mud splattering. Here is ...

Loads of new Cake Toppers

Loads of new Cake Toppers
For those of you who follow this blog, you’ll know about the geek wedding cake toppers that I make. You’ll also know that most of them heavily feature zombies and couples fighting off the horde. Well, it has been a while since I’ve had some to post up here, so here are quite a few ...

TGN Reader’s Choice Awards up for voting today

TGN Reader's Choice Awards up for voting today
Tabletop Gaming News will be starting the voting today on their annual Reader’s Choice awards for 2011. This  award is rather great.  Honestly, I think that every miniatures enthusiast should peruse their yearly nominations as it usually contains a short list of the best minis/games released in the past year.  The TGN nominations usually include ...
