Burrows & Badgers: Great and Small

Recommended Posts

EDIT: It's live! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/oathsworn-burrows-and-badgers-anthro-miniatures-mouse-dog-cat

We love miniatures. We love tabletop games. We love anthropomorphic animals, from Disney's Robin Hood through The Wind in the Willows to Brian Jaques' Redwall books. So we combined the things we love in our Burrows & Badgers tabletop skirmish game and the accompanying range of miniatures. And our Kickstarter backers have already helped us to grow the range to over 100 miniatures - but now it's time to add some more!

Some miniatures from previous projects...

 

Why are we making more miniatures?

Because we want more characters for our Burrows & Badgers games – my Freebeast warband needs reinforcements, for a start! 

And we know a lot of other people are looking for more anthropomorphic animal miniatures too. A lot of people are playing Burrows & Badgers now, and many of them have asked for Massive Hounds and a Massive Raptor, so we've sculpted them! Some will want to use them for other tabletop or roleplaying games, while others love painting miniatures, and our figures are perfect for that, full of character ready to be brought to life with your paintbrush....

And some people just love collecting miniatures; again, we've made this new set of Burrows & Badgers figures perfect for collectors. They are all single piece models, with integral bases, so there are no fiddly parts to be glued on.

We love making miniatures; we hope you'll love our miniatures too.

 

Why we need your help...

We've got 17 new miniatures sculpted, but they need to have moulds made before we can start producing the miniatures. And that's why we need funding; to get the production moulds made, and get the casting process started.

 

About the miniatures...

There are other ranges of anthropomorphic animal miniatures out there, but ours are a little different. We didn't want all the races of animals to be the same size. Instead, we've scaled them to each other; so a shrew or a mouse is a very small model, about 20mm tall, and a really big animal like a badger will stand about 50mm tall, for example.

Each sculpted figure shown below has a scale picture with it, showing its height in millimetres. All our models are supplied unpainted.

The Pledges

We’re keeping it as simple as possible; there’s an ‘All-in’ pledge, which gets you all the new miniatures in this Kickstarter, and any bonus bits that may come along… there’s also a ‘Pick’n’Mix’ Pledge, if you just want to get a few of the new miniatures. For the Pick'n'Mix, just total up the prices of all the miniatures you want, and pledge for that amount. There's a minimum pledge of £10. There's only six of the sculpts shown so far, but expect more to be added regularly... I'll probably add two or three a day!

Finally, I'll be able to get in when it's running, instead of a few months later!

It looks like there’ll be some more very cool sculpts in this one.

I really want to back it, but I may not be able to this time around.

 

And I still haven’t picked up their latest rulebook.:unsure:

eh eheh ehhh :bday: Desert of the dead, Bones 5, and now Badgers... bye bye year wages :zombie:

Pretty much, although for me it's BattleTech that's my main one, alongside Infinity, and, uhm... Yeah.  This one for sure.  Somewhere in all there will be shipping for CAV too...

Please tell me there's a Cleric or other healer called Herriot in that set...   

(Anyone not getting that reference have REALLY missed out on something great)

B&B is an insta-back for me, and there aren’t many of those (Reaper is probably the only other). These sculpts make painting easy (or as easy as it can be), and the folks running the company are lovely (and extremely punctual). 

 

Definitely have a soft spot for that toad.

@WhiteWulfe

You need to read a series of books; 'All Creatures Great and Small' by James Herriot.

(He was a veterinarian by the name of James Alfred Wight, and the books are based on his experiences in the English countryside. Back then is was 'not cpractice' for medical professionals to 'advertise' their services, and since the books could be construed that way, he used a pen name.  )

 

I have both the books and the complete set of DVDs in a shelf in my livingroom. 

(Most of my DVDs are stored in the attic... not these.) 

 

The James Herriot museum is on my list of places to visit if i go to England on vacation.

We'll be launching this one in a week's time, so I thought it was OK to start talking about it here...
I'll start adding pics over the next few days. There'll be 17 new minis in total (plus one or two extras! ;) )

Cheers,
Michael

Here's a couple of the new sculpts (one you've already seen above, but I didn't post it, so I reckon that doesn't count :poke:).

Guh.

 

I love oathsworn stuff... But I want to see another "sensible shoes" project...I have very little use for anthro minis.

 

Still, that toad is pretty incredible. And is that a Raven in a waistcoat? Might fail this will save yet.

Ignoring Infinity miniatures, I suspect my next several female minis will be from Oathsworn... 

 

Definitely can't wait to see this one launch ^_^

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

      Neat little Kickstarter to make a set of Plastic Toy Soldier Style Army Women.  
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bmctoys/plastic-army-women?ref=9u35x8&amp;token=9e662474
       
      The BMC Toys Plastic Army Women is a 24-piece set of plastic female soldier figures in 6 different poses:
      Pathfinder Captain Standing Rifleman Kneeling Rifleman Prone Sniper Grenadier Bazooka Operator November 16th Update: Stretch Goals #1, #2 and #3 are unlocked. All packs of Plastic Army Women are getting upgraded to 36 figures in 12 different poses.  Additional poses include:
      Running Rifleman Combat Medic Low-Crawl Rifleman Radio Operator Wounded Soldier ????????  Made from slightly flexible olive drab green color LDPE plastic, the figures will be approximately 1:32 scale, and stand up to 2.1 inches tall. Their uniforms and equipment are Cold War era, and the size and style are designed to allow these figures to fit in with a wide range of Plastic Army Men that already populate several generations of toy boxes.
