Nurgle Chaos Lord on Daemonic Mount

Here's a mini that I got to paint up for Warhammer Fantasy (or Age of Sigmar as it is now).

 I must say, I really like painting up rotting flesh and pustules. The biggest challenge for Nurgle minis is finding a strong composition that doesn't end up with everything just being brown. I feel I pulled this off on this mini:

Dame Standard Bearer

This is a miniature that a friend of mine gave me- he owned it for a number of years before that, and just wasn't about to learn how to paint minis.

 I'm not completely sure where it comes from. He had a few other minis that looked like they might portray characters from Lord of the Rings, but I haven't seen her in the Mithril catalogue.

 Looking over her, she looked like she might portray Joan of Arc or something along those lines.

 She originally held a sword in her hand, but since I could not find that piece, I made her into a standard bearer with a flag from GW's Lord of the Rings range.

 Anyway, here she is:

Sepia Fairy

Over the years, I've done a few re-paints of figures that I've gotten from gift shops or other non-gaming minis.

 Here is a fairy statue that I found at a thrift-shop. She wasn't in great shape when I picked her up, but all she really needed was a loving paintjob to bring out the good things in the sculpt.

 For this one, I went with a limited color scheme with only browns (and orange is light brown). I feel she turned out pretty nice:

Video Gamer Cake Toppers

I'm really fond of couples that play videogames together. I personally like to have my wife watching my back in Borderlands or Halo.

 The couples here each chose how they'd like to express it- most picked a kissing gamers pose, and one couple were more PC than console gamers and needed mouses to express that.

 Here they all are:
