Families that slay together…

Families that slay together...
So, I work with a lot of couples preparing for their wedding day. Unlike most wedding based businesses, I also get to see how well they’re preparing for the zombie apocalypse. This couple, for example, sent me a photo of them in torn clothing holding these weapons (and there were even some zombies in the ...

Rex from Gencon

Rex from Gencon
Here is Rex the Ogre from Super Dungeon Explore. I painted him for the Gencon Painting competition this year, and he took third place in the large figure category. I felt that was a pretty respectable award for him. Painting him was loads of fun, although it is rough to paint Super Dungeon minis for ...

Romantic Ninja Cake Topper

Romantic Ninja Cake Topper
Most of the cake toppers that I do are similar to ones that I’ve made before. And by far the most popular are the zombie survivors. However, sometimes someone comes to me with a really original idea, and something like this emerges. No zombies, not even combatants standing back to back. Just a romantic Ninja ...

More cake toppers to battle the zombie horde

More cake toppers to battle the zombie horde
I don’t know that I have a whole lot to say here, so here are a couple more couples to fend off the zombie horde:    

Maelok the Dreadbound

Maelok the Dreadbound
Sometimes a mini is very challenging to paint. There are a number of reasons this can be the case. Sometimes the mini is poorly sculpted, and the challenge is to keep the badness of the sculpt to a minimum. Sometimes the mini is extremely well sculpted, and you want to do it justice. Sometimes the ...

A Black Dragon from Wizards of the Coast

A Black Dragon from Wizards of the Coast
I thought I would share this here- it is an older miniature from Wizards of the Coast that is no longer in production. Although some of you may recognize it as Wizard’s black dragon, it is not the iconic one from the pre-painted D&D miniatures range. Rather, it is made of pewter (and is very ...

Zombies don’t like shovels cake topper

Zombies don't like shovels cake topper
If there is anything I have learned from the many hours of videogames, movies, books, RPGs and other zombie related ‘research’ that I do, it is that zombies are particularly weak against shovels. Sometimes it is the shovel or the crowbar that deals the best damage to them. And unlike the chainsaw or any firearms, ...

Polishing off Puppet Wars

Polishing off Puppet Wars
Here is the latest group that I’ve painted up for Puppet Wars. From what I can gather, there aren’t going to be any new puppets at this scale now- the game itself is getting a re-shaping in plastic. At Gencon, they didn’t have an official announcement, but at the Paint and Take, Wyrd was offering ...

The whole wedding party is here.

The whole wedding party is here.
So, people who follow this blog will know that I make a lot of wedding cake toppers, and that most of them involve killing zombies. Sometimes, there is a party that includes quite a few zombies, and in this instance, they are the wedding party. Here you can see the bride and groom fighting off ...

Undead Menites

Undead Menites
I recently got a chance to paint up a Cryx force.  Before I started, I discussed color scheme ideas with my client, and we came up with a Menite theme (use a Menite color scheme on the Cryx minis). At first, I was just thinking about color, composition and originality.  It certainly looks different from ...
