Zombies are weak against 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, it is totally silent and unlikely to attract more zombies.

 It surprises me that I haven't done more shovels on the zombie cake toppers before now.

 With silence in mind, this bride has also chosen a good weapon. The idea here must be to avoid the zombie

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 plastic puppet minis. They were larger than the original metal miniatures, and I really think they put the game more in line with other miniatures board games (Super Dungeon, Blood Bowl, Sedition Wars).

 This group here is of the original, tiny puppets. Because these puppets are all already represented in the set somewhere, I took this opportunity to paint them in different colors (matching the Teddies, they are represented by the Malifaux Faction colors). Well, here they are:

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 their former groomsmen and bridesmaids.

A few recent cake toppers

Well, I often like to post up the cake toppers when I have them. Here are a few of the more recent set: This girl wanted to be armed with a weapon from her favorite shooter.

  Gear-like Shotgun

 This couple seems to think that the 'Till death do us part' bit is optional.


And this couple wanted something a little darker. I usually imagine the couples winning against the zombies,

but I guess that's not always the case:


 And this last one is meant to go on top of a cake that is being climbed by zombies- hence they're both

 looking down.
