Rogues and Vagabonds- A Burrows and Badgers kickstarter by Oathsworn miniatures

Recommended Posts

I'm in.  It's one of the few companies that I love to see grow and  I really want to keep Mike sculpting!  Besides, he does some of the best Redwall style minis I've seen.

 

Now if I only had time to paint more...

Oh yeah, I know this feeling all too well...


So, last day, everyone gets a little sleepy mole. Because I had spare putty lying around...

He's so cute!

 

 

Mayhaps I should beg Mr. Mouse a little more...or just put it on my credit card and pretend it was part of a previous kickstarter...hm...

Lovely and bigger than I expected.

Guess I should go look at the figs now....

 

I'm envious of you.

I really wanted that, it's a beautiful piece, but I just couldn't manage it.

 

I'm hoping Oathsworn find a way to produce something similar that isn't quite so labour intensive for them in the future.

Probably not, to be honest - it's been a freakin' nightmare so far, and I've only got 30 made...

But we've got more space to work in now, so the next 45 should be easier. I hope. After that? I've got a couple of ideas for an easier version, so maybe!

What if you offered it unassembled and unpainted?

 

I know I've got paint and glue...

I really wish I could have pledged for it as well...but I'm already really thankful that I was able to pick up my pledge at Salute! If I can, I will back every future project. Oathsworn really restored my faith in Kickstarter after projects i had backed that were poorly managed or I still haven't seen rewards for.

So after that post, I was relaxed and did not intend to be worried about delivery.  Thus, I was floored today when I found that I had a box with the my miniatures and cathedral wall.  I am reminded why I am habitually backing Oathsworn  projects at this point.  

 

Now to buy the rules and see about making two batches of figures into a couple of plausible war bands...

 

(So what's the next thing?)

You'll need lots of sandpaper and putty too... and a wide vocabulary of curse words seems to be required during the build as well! :poke:
To be fair, just making one might not be that annoying. Doing them in batches of ten at a time is though!

But we are looking at an alternative way to make them at the moment, so a kit version just might be happening in the future...

We'll try to keep justifying your faith! We've had a good run so far... fingers crossed we can continue to manage things well enough. But I'm sure there'll be something unexpected to bite us somewhere down the road! ::D:

Honestly not sure what the next thing is... we had a couple of new projects planned, but it looks like we need to do more Burrows & Badgers first, as we're getting a lot of requests! 
I just need a bit of spare time to pick up the putty again; I'm supposed to be a professional sculptor, but I haven't sculpted anything since January... let's hope I can remember how to do it! :unsure:

      Project description:
       
      About
       Hello Again Kickstarter backers new and loyal, longtime supporters and fans of Red Box games! We have returned again to kickstarter in the hopes to fund our newest selection of fantasy norse figures that we call the Njorn. 
        Our intention is to fund the production of a new set of heroes and their faithful follower rank and file troops. We also intend to fund the set up of our in house production capacity! This means buying a spin caster, a smelter, all the various periphery of safe casting, metal shelves to hold molds ( LOTS of molds ) having our molds shipped to us from the various contractors we currently partner with, and raw metal to do the casting with. Being set up for in house production will allow us to reinvest in the various aspects that will make your experience with Red Box Games more efficient and better presented, as well as allow us to manage our working capital MUCH more efficiently.
        We currently reinvest a disproportionate amount of our profits into maintaining reasonable stock levels across the entire breadth of the red box games line. This is a HUGE investment that grows every time we add new products to the line. It also means we have to rely on kickstarters much more because we simply cannot afford to just put new items in to the store without knowing that the funds are already there to pay for the production and stocking of said items.

        Once set up for casting we will be able to keep the funds of the business' success where it belongs, in the future of the business. It also has the added advantage of allowing us to afford lower prices across the board and able to take chances on items which are too risky to produce through out sourcing such as larger monsters and cavalry and Rank and File sets appropriately priced for army building. 

        To insure that the high level of quality you have come to expect from Red Box Games is faithfully maintained, I will be training in casting with a VERY talented and experienced mold maker and caster. I wont be handling the entire burden of casting right away so there is no need to worry that this development will slow down delivery of the Kickstarter or the regular course of business for RBG.

        My molds will continue to be made by one of the industry's best studios as well so there is no need to worry that the burden will overwhelm me or that the overall quality of the Red Box Games product will suffer.

        I cannot do any of this without your help so please consider backing this kickstarter! You will get some really cool stuff for a GREAT price in a reasonable amount of time and I will FINALLY be able to set up for my own production and make some real progress in this industry!

        AAAaaannndddd without further Adieu...... ON TO THE MINIATURES!!!
       We intend to fund as many figures as this kickstarter will allow and at the outset of the campaign we have 19 figures ready to go with a few slight details needing to be added before they are ready for production and I still have several more underway which will be shown as they are completed and added to the campaign as the funding allows.

      About
      Chibis are super deformed, yet adorable characters that have lately have made a splash in the boardgaming and miniature community with games such as Super Dungeon Explore, Arcadia Quest, Ninja All-Stars and many others. They're also featured in collectible figurines and in other geeky paraphernalia.
      This is the EIGHTH Chibi KickStarter run by Impact! Miniatures and Impact! is partnering with Chibi Capsule and Märchen to bring you some incredible, new Magical Girl chibi miniatures along with monsters for them to combat!
      The funding goal will pay for the sculpting & 3-D printing of the miniatures. And for some of them: The metal masters and resin production molds needed to create mass production of the miniatures.
      The Miniatures  
      ALL miniatures in this KickStarter are provided unpainted. Unless otherwise stated after the name of the miniature, all miniatures offered with this KickStarter will be high quality 3-D prints done on a top end 25 to 50 micron printer (you should not see print lines after priming and paint).   As stretch goals are reached we will unlock additional sculpts.  Stretch Goal may also pay for metal mastering and rubber molds for mass production spincast resin models which will allow the project to offer some of the Magical Girls at lower costs to our backers.  The miniatures will require light clean up, being primed before painted and might need some assembly (although we will do our best to keep the figures with as few pieces as possible).  
      You can use your reward dollars to get any of the miniatures in the listing below.
      Meet the girls!
      MARIYA and the FIGHTING GIRLFRIEND - (70mm tall overall - spincast resin) - $10
