@Lovejoy do you take firstborn as currency? She’s a very good baby, sweet smile, adorable laugh, tendency to poop on everything... :lol: 

 

One of these days i’m gonna be able order all the stuff I’ve missed out on.

Take it from me - once you've had a kid, you'll never be able to afford all the stuff you want ever again. :down:

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

 

It's a difficult one; being a tiny business, we have to focus on what sells, and the Sensible Shoes stuff does well at Kickstarter, but then only sells one or two miniatures per week from the entire range... whereas Burrows & Badgers pays the rent. So, until that changes, most of my sculpting and writing time has to go to B&B, unfortunately.

Sadly not... the four we've got are enough trouble, to be honest! Thankfully they're all older now, but weirdly, still just as messy. :huh:

There is one squirrel, hopefully that's enough to tempt you! ::):

That’s what I thought, until I started painting some of them.  I find them to be very relaxing to paint.

The problem with the HISS minis is that most never need more than one or two, for their PCs or possibly a 'Named NPC' now and then. 

That, and you may not be all that well-known yet. 

 

The B&B minis have a direct use in a custom game. They're also quirky and fun to paint. 

Yeah, they sell a bit better...   ;-)

 

I'm working on a small...  ... ish order of B&B minis, but there won't be any HISS minis added to it. Not because they're not cool or that I don't have a use for them, only because I already have them all...   

 

I wonder how many of your backers know about the Stoatbart family and the wagon you released for the B&B, or the starter warbands...

 

Maybe some painting guides for the HISS minis would help a bit?

Or a game written specifically with Female minis in mind. Not that I can imagine what it would look like.

I don't fancy writing a game specifically for female minis, TBH - I can just imagine the internet flame wars that would result! ;)
Still, I guess that would be publicity, at least, which rarely hurts...

Anyway, here's a couple more of the sculpts... one very large bird, and one smaller, but probably more devious!

Incidentally, if you like Burrows & Badgers (the miniatures or the game), and you use Facebook, then make sure you've joined the Facebook Group! It's a weirdly nice place, especially compared to some of the other Groups I've been in...

Yeah, the game would be ... difficult...   

 

Would I be very wrong if I guess that Grarrk Bloodclaw will end up as Resin?   

(90mm is pretty huge compared to the rest of the minis... )

 

I'm not joining the book of tarnish, bu if I ever manage to paint up enough minis for a couple of warbands, I will bring them to a local minicon sometime. don't sit up and wait...

It's hard to find anything that screams evil more than a top hat used outside of formal events. 

Not even a goatee is worse, and there's not all that many animals with deliberate goatees...

He's a well dressed, dapper merchant.  And he's even smiling!  That's not evil at all! 

 

...Just don't show off the shiny thing hiding in your pocket...

Oh, I understand! Not mad about it, just sad that my needs don't align with yours. I love your sculpts, that magpie is fantastic!...I just can't quite justify the spending when it won't see use in a game and doesn't fit the paradigms for the various minis-related gifts I give.

 

Of course, that magpie could be a kenku merchant in Eberron...hmm...

Yep, the Red Kite will be resin, along with the Bulldog and the Border Collie. It's the wingspan that makes the birdy so big; stood upright, with wings folded, the mini would be shorter than a badger!

Anyway, here's the full list of new sculpts for the Kickstarter. Plus, here's a couple more of the sculpts... a Bulldog, who's a proper chunky boi, and a tiny Shrew, much, much smaller, but still deadly!

      Archon Studio (LOAD, Vanguard of War, Chronicle X) are branching into modular terrain. The project is now Live:

      Apparently it is "full plastic injection" so not the same as their minis. The concept seems interesting, but the preview page is far from finished, so it's hard to get a good grasp on prices (one "Starter Pledge" for $49 is all they currently have listed, along with a $20 add on). The whole magnetized modular wall system looks like it could have potential.

      About
      Digital render of the finished sculpts. In the last six or so years I have played a lot of tabletop games, ranging from Warhammer and Dungeons & Dragons to smaller games like Frostgrave and Relicblade. I have fallen in love with the hobby of painting miniatures and everything surrounding it. A year ago I made plans to give something back and to add something to this hobby community I love so dearly.
      My background in digital game art helped me a lot since I was already familiar with the software to sculpt digitally. So I started working on a few miniatures I would like to produce. Most of them were abandoned in favor of better ideas, but eventually I created this set of three goblins. These goblins are each embodiments of the archetypes found in many of the games I love: the wizard, the fighter and the thief/ranger. 
      I spent the last year figuring out how to cast resin to the standards I saw in the products I enjoy and how to make sure digitally sculpted details translated well to the tabletop scale.
      These three figures are the end result of that progress, but hopefully the start of a lot more.
      I made this Kickstarter to cover the costs of the materials used and shipping, but mostly so I can bring these little goblins to your tabletop :)
      All miniatures will be multiple parts cast in resin and supplied unpainted, with a 25mm gaming base.
      The final resin casts.

      They drag their feet one in front the other, deliberately, slowly. They  crawl out of their resting grounds. Out of the tombs to the fresh air,  slowly, unrestained. 
      Scylla Models is back presenting you a new range of Villains and Undead monsters for your collection. The models we present you are master casts  white metal (primed white for better result in the pictures), with the only exception of Zuula. She on her Night Terror is our first large monster and we decided to go resin. The results are quite impressive as you might see in the picture. If you want to know more about  us visit our website.
