Half Zombie cake topper

Well, here is an interested couple that I got to make recently.

 They wanted a traditional cake and a crazy zombie cake, but they didn't want to have a separate groom's cake. Instead, their cake was divided in half- one half was frosted in white, while the other half was frosted in chocolate. And they asked me to create a cake topper that looked traditional from one side, but from the other side revealed the bride and groom to both be zombies.

 Here it is:

Braveheart Barbarian (Super Dungeon Explore)

I decided that my party of Super Dungeon heroes really needed a barbarian with a sort of William Wallace theme to her. So, I got to painting


And to go with her, I have a few treasure chests finished:

A Fairy and her Dragon

I've gotten into the habit of taking statues that aren't meant to be painted or converted and giving them treatment as miniatures. I just posted the latest one onto Coolmini.

 I hadn't thought of this when I uploaded her, but she actually made the top 10 for CMON. Since it works off of the calender year, it really just means that she's among their top minis of the past ten days.

 This is a statue from the Fairy Society- they make lovely fairies in a variety of sizes, none of them standard miniatures scale. This fairy is far larger than most of the fairies that I've painted, but the Dragon is smaller than most of the dragons I've done.

 I'll have these photographs separately posted to my galleries later.

Some Dress Blues

One thing that I get to make fairly often are cake toppers in uniform.

 I'm not sure whether or not I should be surprised that so many of our military men would like to be armed when they're married, or that they choose brides who are cool with the idea of having zombies on their cake, but I enjoy them all the same.

They tend to be more specific than most about the types of guns they're using. I've done a few cake toppers in combat uniforms, but here are a few in various dress blue uniforms.

Eldrad Ultran

Here's something that I should have seen coming sooner. The ally rules for 40k have added a new dimension to painting. I now get orders here and there for minis to match different factions that they'll be fielded with. This is an Eldrad Ulthran who is allied to a Dark Eldar force painted up in black and neon colors. The Ulthwe color scheme was a good place to start, I simply had to add in some of the black lighting colors. Here he is:
