Mouse Guard Miniatures?

Recommended Posts

Howdy all!

 

I'm going to start a Mouse Guard group for kids (around 5 to 7-ish years old) soon. I have the mouseling minis for the mice themselves, but I need minis for a wide variety of NPCs and enemies. This is the tentative list I've come up with, based on the core book and the size chart that I attached. I'd like to stay within Bones, but I'm totally okay with spreading out into different Reaper brands. If you folks have any suggestions, it would be much appreciated. I'm mostly looking for miniatures that fit the size categories and look similar to the creature intended (i.e., the Dragon Tortoise for a snapping turtle). If the animal has (Int) in front of this, it has its own society in the world of Mouse Guard, and thus would be wearing clothes, wielding weapons, etc. Thanks for the help!

For the intelligent creatures, Dark Sword Miniatures has tons of anthropomorphic animal adventurers.

Really beautiful stuff and look good next to Mouselings.

 As mentioned, although they're all metal, between Darksword and Oathsworn you'll find everything you were looking for as far as the intelligent animal races. Oathsworn's figures are all appropriately sized relative to each other - the rats are bigger than the mice and the otters are much bigger than the rats, etc., but Darksword's don't have nearly as much size variation relative to each other. And neither company's mice are exactly the same size as the Reaper mouslings.

 

Reaper also has a companion animals set, 77216, but these wouldn't exactly be to exact scale with the mouslings...

Thanks for all the suggestions! Oathsworn is down at the moment, but Darksword had a lot of good ones for the Weasel relatives (apparently their on the 28 mm scale). I've updated my list based on what I found on their websites.

Sorry about that! We've taken the webstore down at the moment, as we've been working flat-out on Kickstarter fulfillment. It should be back up sometime this week though...

Some of the plastic animal toys they sell at toys r us, michael's, or target might work well for the giant animals. You might just have to use your imagination for making them "to scale" though.

 

And Oathsworn makes top notch minis :;):

I integrated the new suggestions into the list. For those miniatures that don't have a base, I'm probably going to end up buying bulk round bases from Games Workshop and gluing them there so they can fit the grid. Woo boy, Oathsworn and Darksword are absolutely gorgeous now that I can see both. Now I just have to hope that somebody in the NYC-Metro Area sells them.

Welcome to our Asylum away from Home!

 

You can check the "Complete Strategist" at 11 East 33rd street to see if they can order them for you...

(Great game store by the way.... very nice and knowledgeable folks)

 

Just a heads up: When you see someone posting in PURPLE, they are being sarcastic and or teasing....

 

There is also a New England Miniatures Painting Association that meets in Groton CT (usually) once a month or so....

Info thread Here

 

Hope you enjoy your stay!

Also bulk bases can be gotten from a wide variety of sellers, including Reaper

      Brought some painting models for vacation.  Finished the Hell Hound last night, didn’t WIP it.
       
      Had Yephima on my shelf of shame for a long time.  If it ends up 1/100 as good as the studio version I’ll be happy.  Plan on light blue skin and silvery hair, like the Bestiaries suggest.  Other than that, not sure...

       
      Here she is primed with Brown Liner.  That’s gonna take some work to get the skin tones brighter.

      Story
      Corvus Corax Miniatures is a small hobby project created in 2013. Since then, four projects have successfully funded on Kickstarter and all have been fully delivered on time without any delays. The feedback from the backers have only been positive!
      The goal of this project is to raise funds for the production a total of four (4) miniatures for the Sons of Yetl Black. The miniatures will be cast in high quality, non-toxic resin. The scale of the miniatures is 35mm (measuring to the eyes in a standing, straight pose, although some characters may be slightly larger because they are supposed to be large characters).

      Gonna start another WIP.
      This figure is bent, her hair is weird, and her features are MICROSCOPIC!
       
      So, I’m gonna kind of rush her.
       

       
      Trimmed, washed, primed in brown liner.  No attempt to straighten her bend.  The sword forms an S shape.
       
      Face was Terran Khaki, Faded Khaki, Amber Gold, then Splintered Bone mixed in.  Then I did a half-assed lining and shading with a dilute mix of Dragon Black/Ruddy Flesh.  Eyes were then done with Splintered Bone/Dragon White, and a Dragon Black/trace Ruddy Flesh dot.
       
      Had some nearly dry ?Red on the palette I slapped on her lower lip, then glinted it with the lightest mixed skin tone.
       
      The hair seems like it’s supposed to be actively blown by wind.  It was painted Dragon Black, Cloudy Grey, and Cloudy Grey/Dragon White.  I then Re shaded and altered things with black again.  Honestly, her head could be Kitsune or Cosplay Cat ears, or a crown.  But there is hair texture, so I painted it like black hair. 
       
      Planning for blue dragon head since I’m due to paint another 1/5 of my Kobolds, and blue is in line.
       
      Plan on a red/orange cloak for contrast with the dragon.

       
      Earth Brown leggings.  Woodstain Brown boot leather, belt, gauntlets.
