Burrows and Badgers by Oathsworn Miniatures


Recommended Posts

Anyone else think Jo is giving Michael a wicked hard time because her terrain is getting so much praise, and the critters are getting a "yeah the minis are great too" afterthought?   ::D:

 

Lol! I was just typing a big THANK YOU for all the kind comments on my terrain when your comment popped up  ::D: ...

 

...I'm just so relieved that you all like it. I was so nervous as it was my first go at sculpting so Michael can now say 'I told you so', and I can stop worrying.

 

As long as everyone's happy, that's all that matters...and at the end of the day...Michael is the Master, I'm his apprentice  ::D:

I like September for Burrows and Badgers II....

It may well be September; it depends on 3 things - how quickly I get the sculpting done, when Pete can fit us in for moulding and casting, and how quickly I run out of money and have to take commission jobs instead... :blush:

 

 

Mine aren't here yet, but they may have been one of the late orders, due to extra hares.....

Yours should be on the way - we didn't hold back any overseas ones. The six delayed ones were all UK, as that way we could send them first class and they'd still get delivered quickly. So expect yours any day now! ^_^

 

...Am I weird, since I am really exited about the tents?

Yes. Yes, you are.

No, I loved the tents as well.  It's a great piece of scenery.  I wish I had a few more.

Hang on, I said yes! :rock:

Those tents are very nice.

Ok, ok I suppose they were alright-ish.

... Man, I LURVE this terrain...

Seriously, stop banging on about the terrain!  :grr:

The terrain is just amazing. I agree about the tents, what a brilliant idea! 

Et tu, Sara, et tu?

ooh that terrain! Hoody Hoo!

Ok, that's it! I'm giving up sculpting forever!  :grr:

Well, until tomorrow, anyway.

Or maybe later today.

 

I'm an addict.  :down:

 

But I must say I am just a teensy bit miffed at not getting another one of those most excellent plastic boxes oathsworn used to come in. They are so great to store stuff in, and I can't get anything even remotely like them around here.

Yeah, the plastic boxes... sorry! I miss them too. They've become a casualty of the postal cost increases. The boxes themselves were about 50p each for the bigger ones, but the main problem was the weight; they were about 140g, and that usually tips us into a higher cost posting bracket. 

So the plastic boxes were costing us about £3 to £4 extra per backer. 

 

Because we went with the cardboard boxes this time, we only lost about £300 overall on the postage, which is much better than usual!

 

cheers

Michael

lol, I just wanted to make sure you knew what an awesome job you'd done on it. We're both really impressed with the terrain, and it really is a great idea to have tents (I bet you could sell bazillions of those to the war gamer crowd, for realz).

 

The minis themselves are just gorgeous as always. I can't wait for the next one, so I can have more foxes, maybe a lady badger to keep her man in line  :;): and more rats. The rats are just begging to have a swarm!  ::o:

 

 

:lol: @ Michael: you posted while I was typing  ::P:

Hey, I'm interested in the rules!!

I might actually be able to get my wife to play this one.  ::D:

 

 

So when should we expect the spin-offs?  "B&B 1888: Steampunk Anthro London", and of course "B&B 40k: In the grim darkness of the far future burrows, there is only war...and Badgers"

 

You know they'd sell  ::D:

 

I'd say never. Never ever ever. Because I don't like the idea at all. But... I'm fickle, and I'm already thinking of how I'd sculpt them, and how cool they'd look, so...  :blush:

 

Actually Dave, when you get around to a third wave I think a range of all-evil creatures is needed. The first 20 all have a noble demeanor, I think we need some baddies.

 

Interesting... I thought the baddies were evil enough... so I guess the question has to be, What are you looking for in an Evil Anthro? What would make them look wicked enough?

My .02 Lupins:

 

Have them wearing really ratty (no pun intended) clothing, with rips, tears, mismatched, beat up arms & equipment, etc.

 

Not that Bad Guys couldn't afford the good stuff, or otherwise acquire it. Hard to get the scruffy unshaven look with critters, but maybe some visible scars and torn tufts of fur here and there could add some surliness...

 

Meanwhile, checking mail box daily.

Canada Post hates me, still not no awesome scenery (oh, and some figs... ::P: ).

 

Funny, since robinh got his yesterday, and lives about a 20 minute drive from me.

Maybe he didn't actually order any, and just slipped the mailman a $20  :poke:

QFT. I've never even thought about campsite terrain, but when it became avaliable there was suddenly a tiny 30mm-scale tent-shaped hole in my soul.

 

The Hare Warrior is by far my favorite thing in this KS, though, and may have just become my new "when I'm good enough" mini.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
