Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3

Recommended Posts

Edit - project is now live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/heroines-in-sensible-shoes-3-miniatures-for-rpgs

Starting on Monday, for probably 14 days, Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3 - Not every heroine is human.

Teaser pic, as there's only five minis sculpted so far! I'll be sculpting at least 7 more throughout the project, taking input and suggestions from the backers...

So far, there's a firbolg druid, tabaxi and kenku rogues, a minotaur barbarian, and a hobgoblin eldritch knight.

 

After consulting with our previous backers, the the most popular suggestions are - another tabaxi, probably either a monk or wizard; a tiefling wizard, and a tiefling paladin or cleric; another kenku (probably a magic user of some sort); a dragonborn paladin; a tortle (no ideas on class or equipment yet!); and finally a human barbarian, heavy, powerful build, but not lean.

 

I'm open to suggestions though, so if you have any, please let me know!

cheers

Michael

Hate to admit it but I don't think this one is going to be for me, mostly because of the strange races.

 

Best of luck with the kickstarter though. Hoping to take part in future ones.

It's a worry for me, to be honest. People are always telling me they can't get minis for these races, but then I wonder if that's because nobody wants them?

By Tuesday I'll probably be scrapping it and replacing them all with humans! :poke:

I think bringing in uncommon races is a brilliant choice!  I've had trouble finding decent kitsune minis.  Several of the guys I play PFS with have expressed the challenge of finding grippli or tengu minis as well.  Of course, quality female dwarf, gnome, or Halfling minis are also non-human characters that might appeal to those who don't want to go quite as monstrous?

Well there is that, but for me I think it's more that I'm simply old school and don't identify with these newer races.

 

Not to say I wouldn't be intrigued by an amazing sculpt. I think it's just in my brain I want to compartmentalize my minis and while I have accepted and collected animorphic characters such as yours, Darkswords, and Reapers Mouslings, I mentally place them in their own separate little gameworld, like that in your ruleset, and I'm good with that.

 

With this though, I'm more likely to wait and see and then afterwards perhaps place an order through your online store for any I fancy as well as those I've been wanting and missed from your earlier kickstarters.

 

We'll see. ::):

I'm super excited by the non-human races. need a female of any job so long as it's human elf or dwarf and you could literally drown in the options. tiefling or tabaxi and well you might have 1 to choose from, so long as you're only playing exactly the stereotypical kind.

 

ETA. tiefling paladin has me tingly.

I'm quite curious about these, human, non-human normal humanoid, and very non-human races.

The first two were great projects. 

good coms, great figures.  

I don't really need the non-human figures offered this time around, and my fiances are kind of strapped anyway.  

but ill keep an eye on future projects. 

 

and two of my favs were changed or sculpted completely during the previous campaigns.  (1/2 orc and Pregnant villager)

.. tiefling girls with cute hoofies? .. .. *hopeful*

I might be tempted if there were tiefling girls with hooves; those are absurdly hard to find; like tiefling guys with hooves. :/

I'll give a pass on nobody getting cloven hooves quite right, if only there were some!

 

Catfolk wearing clothing are also difficult to find..

Kickstarter is the perfect platform for it, however, because if the Kickstarter doesn't meet its goals, you don't waste time and money on production molds and product no one will buy.

 

I'm hoping for some Earthdawn/Shadowrun style Trolls: big hulking PCs with horns.

Might be that I'm a boring person or play with boring people, but personally I don't have any use for the crazy rare PC races.

Personally I would love to see some female elves in sensible shoes, the wood elf you already got in your store has nice facial features. While there are many female elves out there (as a humans), they seem to suffer from the whole, eh, barbie-fication more often than others.

      Hi all, 
       
      I feel a bit bad that this is my first post here on Reaper Forum advertising a kickstarter. I used to go by the Moniker Kaybee or Kaybee81 (can't remember) but as I'm known as beefcake on other fora I thought it best to go by the same name everywhere. Anyway here is a link to some STL files for purchase.


      The Wizard's Tower contains stackable tower sections to create your own unique Wizard's Tower. 
      Files have been scaled for 28mm miniatures but, as with all 3d printable files, you have the ability to scale them up or down to suit your gaming needs.
      The initial reward consists of 7 different modular tower pieces and a ladder. All of which have been created on Blender, run through a repair tool, to check for any non-manifold parts and other errors, and printed.

      [li]Tower roof[/li]
      [li]Single window tower section[/li]
      [li]Tower section with door[/li]
      [li]Tower bridge (2 bridge sections link together)[/li]
      [li]Double window tower section[/li]
      [li]Windowless tower section[/li]
      [li]Tower base[/li]
      [li]and a ladder[/li]

      [/li]
      [/list] All for NZD $10 (roughly USD $6.80)
       
      The tower pieces can be oriented in almost any direction to provide a different look each time you game.

      I have had a little time to do some painting this week.  While my main ongoing project has to do with filling out the orders of battle for my five-country fantasy campaign, my brother has been after me to get a Burrows and badgers war band ready by Christmas, when I next expect to see him again. As it happens, the Muse has been receptive to his entreaties, and the inspiration available to me this week was for Burrows and Badgers.  I find that disrespecting the Muse is usually a bad idea, so here we are.  These two are the otter ranger and the mole mercenary; I recently was working on some 40mm historical landsknechts, so he was in my comfort zone.
       

       
      I know that Michael Lovejoy reads these forums, and he has commented that he likes to sculpt everything in one piece because he doesn't like assembling things.  This is a position which I am 100% in agreement with, and that contributes to these figures being a real pleasure to paint.  they also are fast to do.  The mole mercenary turned out to be about a 45 minute job, so I could have done him as a speed painting contest (minus some paint mixing time I'd have needed for contest conditions.)
       

       
      As soon as I finished these, I pulled out the next three I'd already primed and started on of them, and then rooted through the boxes from the two Kickstarters I'd backed.  So, more to come...

      Fun Dark Sword mage that I finished recently. I painted her fairly quickly so I did not do a WIP thread. I am really happy with how her skin turned out, I think skin is finally clicking with me. Also tried NMM gold for the first time and actually really enjoyed it. Defintely will do more NMM in the future as it made painting the fiddly bits easier. TMM was a pain when I previously painted Dark Sword Miniatures with similar ornaments, it’s good for large areas not so much for tiny ones. One last thing is a slight conversion, she was sculpted with a bottle in her hand that I made into a mushroom to tie her to the base more.

      Hmm, search function claims there's no hits on this forum for 'war', so I may be simply missing it, but I don't seem to see anyone mention this has relaunched:
       
      Z War One - Damnation "episodic, comic book miniature board game"
       
      Only difference as far as I can tell is more stretch goals. Might've made sense for them to try to have a third episode ready, but doesn't look like it so far.
