OUR AIMS

Put simply, we want to produce a great line of high-quality miniatures which can be used for a variety of purposes.

These miniatures are going to be cast in lead-free metal for several reasons; metal miniatures are more durable, retain great detail during casting while costing less than resin and provide the best material for converting models.

Standard troops (e.g. the first two female models) will have interchangeable pieces; the heads, arms, torso and legs are printed separately with the same joints.

Special characters and leaders (e.g. the female death mage) will be more detailed and, while poseable, will be more focused towards being showcase pieces. Having said that, where possible, these models will come with multiple pieces (e.g. heads) which can also be interchanged with the other models.

Below are pictures of master-casts, held together unceremoniously with blu-tac. We specifically laid aside part of our starting budget to have the models printed with numerous different companies so that we could choose the best result for the project.

We're delighted that the tiniest details, like the knives on her left leg and the cross-stitching on the sides of her trousers, have come out perfectly. The model is shown here on a standard 25mm base. See the 3D renders below for comparison.

THE REWARDS

We have 54 models planned, and funding beyond our stretch target of £20,000 will be a huge bonus (including multiple free models for all pledges £19 and over) allowing us to pass considerable savings on to our initial backers. The list of planned models, along with unlock levels for the campaign, is shown below.

All models unlocked will also be available individually at the end of the campaign as an add-on for the same price (£6) as at the reward levels.

We wanted to keep the description short and sweet, so please find the 3D renders of the first three models below. Your support of this project means that we have money to not only master-print the other renders but also then cast these for distribution to the pledges.

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      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.

      Hey everyone, we've got a new Kickstarter for more Burrows & Badgers anthro minis starting a week from today. So I thought I'd start a placeholder thread now, so I could post a link to the 'Remind me' page.  This one's been a long time coming, thanks to Covid and Brexit messing things up, but we're finally back on track... 

      Anyway, proper pics and stuff once we actually launch!


       
      stay safe,

      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.
