Wyrd does Plastic

Wyrd does Plastic
Wyrd miniatures have been around for a while now. For the past few years, they’ve had a lot of success with Malifaux. Last year, they introduced a number of resin miniatures- larger minis that were made from resin to offset the rising costs of tin. This year, they feel that the prices of tin have ...

So, most of you probably already knew that Gencon was the pre-release for Privateer Press‘ new Level 7 board game, the new guargantuans, and the Iron Kingdoms RPG system. Once the hall opened, they had a line of about five hundred people to pick up things from their booth. That lasted until about three in ...

New Super Dungeon Expansion minis revealed

New Super Dungeon Expansion minis revealed
I think the guys at Sodapop never expected their stuff to get so big. Their current Kickstarter project is soon going to outstretch its second map of stretch goals, and their board game, Super Dungeon Explore! has been solidly selling out for a while now. I think they’re on their third printing, and they’ll probably ...

Pathfinder has all their fan bases covered

Pathfinder has all their fan bases covered
The Paizo booth at Gencon was buzzing along pretty solidly anytime I walked by. So much Pathfinder stuff for people to see. One interesting note was that Reaper wasn’t around this year. They decided to go to PAX Prime, and couldn’t make both venues (and keep up their Kickstarter at the same time). That meant ...

Gencon Painting Awards

Gencon Painting Awards
Well, I’m back from Gencon, and every year it takes me a little while to get through all of the blogging that I want to do. This year is no different, so expect me to talk about little else for about a week. First off- the Gencon Indy Miniatures Painting Competition. This year, the competition ...

Harlequin Titan

Harlequin Titan
Some of my favorite painting projects are the large resin miniatures- like the ones from Forge World, or the new ones coming out of Privateer Press. This is made all the more true by the addition of freehand and cool effects. For this one, I think my client’s concept was just priceless. Take an Eldar ...

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 ...
