About this project

We love miniatures. We love tabletop games. We love anthropomorphic animals, from Disney's Robin Hood through The Wind in the Willows to Brian Jaques' Redwall books. So we combined the things we love in our Burrows & Badgers range of metal miniatures.

Why are we making them?

Because we want them! And we know a lot of other people are looking for more anthropomorphic animal miniatures too. Some will want to use them for wargaming or roleplaying. That's what we do with ours - and there's a link below to a free .pdf copy of the Burrows & Badgers Skirmish Game rules for you to download, if you feel like trying it out.

Other people love painting miniatures, and our figures are perfect for that, full of character ready to be brought to life with your paintbrush....

And some people just love collecting miniatures; again, we've made this new set of Burrows & Badgers figures perfect for collectors. They are all single piece models, with integral bases, so there are no fiddly parts to be glued on.

We love making miniatures; we hope you'll love our miniatures too.

Why we need your help...

We've got 13 new miniatures sculpted, but they need to have moulds made before we can start producing the miniatures. And that's why we need funding; to get the moulds made, and get the casting process started.

About the miniatures...

There are other ranges of anthropomorphic animal miniatures out there, but ours are a little different. We didn't want all the races of animals to be the same size. Instead, we've scaled them to each other; so a shrew or a mouse is a very small model, about 20mm tall, and a really big animal like a badger will stand about 50mm tall, for example.

Each sculpted figure shown below has a scale picture with it, showing its height in millimetres. All our models are supplied unpainted.

And if you are interested in doing some anthro skirmish gaming, here's the link to the Burrows & Badgers website, where you can download .pdf files of the rules, warband rosters, FAQs and more:

The Pledges

Below you'll see pictures of the different Pledge levels available. Each picture shows you what's included in the Pledge, then below them you can see close-up pictures of the individual miniatures, which also include the prices if you want to add extra miniatures to any Pledge. Shipping costs vary depending on where you are; there's a graphic at the bottom of this page that lists all the shipping costs. All Pledges are set for an estimated delivery of December 2017, but we're hoping to deliver sooner than that.

Pictures of the miniature sculpts

Below you can see pictures of each of the miniatures, and there's a scale image at the bottom right of each picture to show the height of the model in millimetres. There's also a price at the bottom of each picture, for the Pick'n'Mix pledge, or to add extra models to any pledge.

I was about to say they gave us plenty of notice that time, but it looks like it was only about a week. But even then, I think if it was a one-day thing they'd have a date picked out already. Some of us will be camping in the wilds of Maine this weekend...

It's looking more like Saturday, Sunday or maybe Monday now... everything takes soooo long! <_<

It'll probably be 7 days I think - any longer doesn't seem to work for little companies like us...  but we'll probably save the 24 hour projects for special occasions. I'm thinking maybe a bunch of Norse Gods on a 24 hour KS for December 21st - for Yule! Could be fun.

For this project, we've got 14 minis, and a resin house to choose from... little stuff like mice and shrews, up to a big (45mm) raven. The raven's a pretty simple design, but was a bloomin' nightmare to sculpt, as some step-by-step Updates will show, so you can share my pain! ::D:

I haven't taken the final, good quality pics of the raven yet, but here's a dodgy pic to give you the idea:

There's also a really, amazingly, awesomely cool mini, (IMHO, anyway!) but I can't say anything about it yet, as it's a bit of a complicated shape, so I have to check with Pete first to make sure it's moulding / casting friendly... fingers crossed!

 

cheers

Michael

I met Dave and Jo at Salute back in April, lovely people. It was very noticeable however that the one doing all the work was Jo.

She enjoys it, and it would be wrong of me to stop her doing something she enjoys! :poke:


Incidentally, here's a painted pic of the resin mouse-house...

Is, is the mouse house going to be in this project? I didn't miss it, did I? I need one! 

 

Excuse me, I need to go rob a bank too.

      Do yourself a favour and take a look at what's on offer even if you've not backed one of Stonehavens projects before.
      Lots of unique and fun concepts scattered throughout,
       
      Plus they've done things a bit differently and have everything already sculpted and shown.
       
      Love the cloaked mysterious strangers.

      Hi there fellow gamer's and painters!
       
      I would like to take this opportunity to introduce the Purgatory kickstarter that goes live on the 10th October 2016. You can preview the project here: https://goo.gl/g73jPiwhich will give you a flavour of what is to come.
       
      In April we went to Salute and we took with us this artbook:
      https://goo.gl/5lT8Lc
       
      You can find pictures of at least 5 of the starting factions alongside information on the background and the history of some of the characters themselves.
       
      If you like what you see you can follow us on twitter @purgatoryminis or you can follow our facebook page: www.facebook.com/purgatoryminiatures along with the other 1600+ followers we are lucky to have. We have a website: www.purgatory-miniatures.co.uk that gives you more information on the game and the world as well as having a shop where you can pick up models like Erishkigal below.
       
      You can see that we have some 'pedigree' in delivering highly detailed multi part resin models that are at 32mm scale. We have 7 models now released and the kickstarter bring the possibility of another 30 or more models that are all interchangeable to give you a dynamic and long lasting game.
       
      The pledges feature a number of different levels, where the more you spend the greater the value. The £90 set for example, includes 15 models, all coming with a unique insert for their base. 15 stat cards, 15 San Ban cards, unique art, dice, hard copy rulebook and 60 Gift of the Gods cards. It really is packed with value.
       
      So if you like the look of Purgatory, come on over and support the project as we ramp up for the War in Heaven!
       
      Thanks
       
      Team Purgatory

      A smart holder system for painting and sculpting tabletop and board game miniatures - touchless, comfortable and much more precise.

      About
                                          Halfling Borderlands
      Welcome to my latest Kickstarter. Firstly I'll confess my love for OldSchool Miniatures & Tabletop Games. I always wanted a Halfling Army to play with in Warhammer 2nd & 3rd. I never forgave Games Workshop for removing all my favourite Armies, especially Gnomes, Halflings and Hobgoblins. That was one of the main reasons I stuck with 3rd edition Warhammer. Halflings are great for Skirmish games too. I envisioned this Kickstarter to provide some rural Farming Halfling types and the animals that they rear and protect.
      I worked in conjunction with Langley Miniatures on this Kickstarter. Like the last one, I'm working towards a quick turnaround. Everyone should have their orders by the end of January.
      I would also like to take the time to personally thank everyone who has supported my sculpting endeavors. Much appreciated.
      Andy T.
