I Can Has Halo Wedding? With Cats?

The wedding cake toppers are all custom made for a particular couple. Sometimes, after I've posted one, another couple might want something similar, and just want a few changes.

 In this case, the happy couple loved this Master Chief, but wanted to change his bride to match their wedding colors, and add in their cats. They sent me quite a few photos of their cats for the cake topper.

Tzeentch Demons and Charoit

Tzeentch has always been my favorite of the Chaos gods. It might have been how the Lord of Change reminded me of a Skeksi.

 Since then, Tzeentch has gone through many incarnations- with the rise and fall of M'Kachen, and the introduction of Fateweaver and Ahriman. Horrors went from funny little chibis to wild messes of tentacles and back again, flamers went from headless fungoids, to bird skull monsters and later to a jumble of gibbering firey mouths.

 Here is the current Tzeentch chariot for a Chaos Demon force:


Now, I had previously painted up quite a few blue and pink horrors for this force, so he had me paint his Brimstone Horrors. They're pretty fun little guys, and very numerous (here's just a sample of the many brimestone horrors that are part of this force).

Post Apocalypse Alpaca Wedding Cake Topper

I make a lot of cake toppers for some very different people. It is great to see all of the varied ideas people have for them.

 So I think it goes without saying that I never expected to be making an Alpaca for anyone's wedding.

Yep, that's an alpaca with goggles joining these two in the post apocalyptic wasteland. And I'm not sure exactly why, but I'm now convinced that alpacas are just great at weddings.

Stormcasts and Stardrakes

Just a little while ago, I got to paint up a full force of Stormcast Eternals riding various drakes. I was a little surprised by just how many Stardrakes fit into the force, and there were quite a number of Dracothian Guard as well (I only got a couple of them photographed).

 Here they are in their glory.

Fantasy Adventurer Wedding Cake Topper

I met my wife at the game store at a weekly role playing game. I had just moved into town, and the first thing I did was check out the local comic shops- and the 'manager' invited me to game on Thursday. That group is still close, and we still play every Thursday (although a few players have moved away). Her wedding dress had dragons embroidered onto it.

 It is reasons like these that I wish I had started making cake toppers before I got married. I'd have had quite a lot to work with.

 Here's a couple that were a little like us- they met through gaming and had me match some of the gear and costumes of their characters.

Super Kingdom Death Explore- Kingsman and Messenger of Humanity

It has been a little while since I've posted one of these. These are Kingdom Death characters re-imagined as Chibis. The concept came about because of the crossover Kingdom Death did with Super Dungeon Explore, and it has kind of just gone from there.  I really love mixing the very dark setting of Kingdom Death with the cuteness of chibis.

 Here is the Kingsman Nemesis:


And here is the Messenger of Humanity. The role of this mini in the game is a little odd. He was part of a set of scenarios that Adam Poots decided weren't working after a beta run. During the 1.5 Kickstarter, one of the promises made is that new rules will be made for all of the messengers. Until then, he's being used to represent a survivor.

Chaos of all Marks in Blue

I often get to paint up forces in some pretty interesting color schemes, and here's a nice example.

This force was going with an all blue theme- the core color for Tzeentch.  The part that made it really shine was the fact that most of the minis were affiliated with other chaos factions.  So, if you ever wondered what Khorne or Nurgle characters would look like if the Changer of Ways got to them, here they are.

The other thing that made this force special is the fact that many of these chaos warriors are converted from Stormcast eternals.  My client did the conversions, but I really think they turned out great and go to show just how easy it is to corrupt Sigmar's elite.
