Burrows & Badgers: Great and Small

Recommended Posts

So, please accept this question understanding that I am already all-in, but as an old-schooler I am not very familiar with resin. I am particularly curious about what happens if you drop it. Chipping is one thing; shattering another. 

A structural engineer I'm not but I do have experience with dropping things ::D:.  if I drop my badger warrior from the tabletop to a concrete floor there is some bending of the limbs and I get an unfortunate amount of paint chipping on the limb that hit the floor as well as where the bend in the metal occurred.  My love for metal it purely a textural thing.  I feel like I am getting a better value with a metal mini, it just has more substance!

 

on the badger mage, when I dropped him the staff hit first and didn't break and the only paint that was scuffed was where the mini actually made contact with the concrete.  This is not to say you cant break them but the fact that they are lighter than the metal and somewhat springier tends to keep massive damage at bay.  That said, if you throw a Warhammer resin miniature at a wall in fury it will shatter all over the place (a fellow player did not like the results of his psycher attack!)

 

Basically:  resin tends to be more resilient until you hit the breaking point, but when you hit that point the damage tends to be much more catastrophic than with a metal mini

"Resin" isn't just one thing, so the answer is, "It depends". First there's the type of resin, which can vary quite a bit in shock resistance ( @Lovejoy will I'm sure jump in with more on this). Second there's the issue that size can be very important in fragility.

 

Yes, that wasn't a particularly well formed question. The implied question, given that Oathsworn is using some presumably consistent resin formulation for figures of a certain size, is whether my badger likely to shatter when it gets knocked off my three foot tall wargaming table onto my hardwood floor.  Unfortunately, that points out several more variables that would need definition...

 

As an engineer by training, I'd just do an experiment, but I only have two right now, and don't want to have to replace one. ::o:

Just assume it will break and play in a padded room :winkthumbs:

The only 'issue' with this KS as I see it is that it ends a couple of days after Bones V.  

There's a danger of some backers overextending themselves on that, and not have the funds available when this one ends. 

These days you're always running against one big project or another though... you just have to launch, and give it your best shot!

We use polyurethane resin and the miniatures are pretty chunky; in my experience, they just bounce!
I can say that a metal badger would almost certainly suffer damage in that fall, getting flat spots at the least, due to the weight. I've not tried it with a resin one, but I suspect it would be totally unscathed.

Thin miniatures, on the other hand, can snap, the same as metal.

 

Anyway, two more sculpts up now... and some painted pics of one of them!  :)

What we need is a mad Scotsman with a claymore and a kilt!

 

and that toad is in addition to everything else, an excellent bullywug.

 

All the sculpts are lovely. I must have them!

Am I missing something?  I thought that was the squirrel!  a mad rampaging nutbrain with a skirt and a bit pointy stick! ::D:

 

(apologies to the debonair, well mannered Scotsman out there)

Depending on where in the world you are, we will either ship to you from our hub in the UK (EU backers), China (Asia Pacific backers), Singapore (Singaporean backers), Canada (Canadian backers), Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers) or Atlanta (USA and the rest of the world). Following is a list of rough estimates for shipping a standard game package (4kg volumetric weight).

OCEANIA: $20-$45 to Australia. $40 to New Zealand.  AFRICA: $95 to most countries.  EUROPE: $20-$30 to most countries.   • $35 to Norway, Switzerland, Finland, Estonia, and Latvia.   • $50 to Bosnia/Herzegowina, Croatia, and Iceland.   • $70-$80 to Israel, Liechtenstein, and Serbia.  • $90 to Belarus. Unfortunately, different import laws and customs have made it impossible for CMON to ship games to certain specific countries.
      *WE DO NOT SHIP TO:* Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan.

      About
      The Edge: Dawnfall is new miniature Board Game by Awaken Realms for 1-4 players. It was created by Michał Oracz (man behind 13 years of Neuroshima Hex and recent hit Cry Havoc) and it brings next level of competitive gameplay to the table. Fresh, exciting, pure and rewarding.
      It’s a living organism with a very passionate community. It’s thousands of hours of development, hundreds of unique art pieces, over hundreds of pages of rich and unique campaigns, 7 extremely asymmetric and unique factions and finally and most importantly a fast, dynamic and very exciting skirmish game with tons of cinematic skills and turn the tide moments.
      This is a second Edge the Boadgame Kicstarter, a reprint of our naive 2016 kickstarter promise of an unreasonably high amount of content that not only we still managed to reach, but even overdeliver. It’s our biggest and most ambitious project yet, it’s our favorite child, our blood tears and sweat. It’s a Beast!

      Remember this thread?
       
      You know, the Yedharo/GT project that was cancelled and they said they'd reluanch it?
       
      Well they relaunched it.
       
      There's a lot less units this time and far more characters (some of whom appear to have been inspired by the Atlantis Dwarfs or are attempting to copy their success but with a Yedharo/GT spin on it).
       
      I might jump in for a small handful of character models but I won't go in big on this one. Then again why would dwarfs go big? They're small. It's one of their defining features :).
       
      'cause Atlantis did dwarven women with shaved sides and some goat riders......
       

       
      He's baaaaack!
       

       
      She got off the goat
       

       
      Hammer Man is back again
       

       
      Apparently she's really "Busty"
       

       
      At least the leaping Trollslayer is back again :)
       

       
      Mr Ugly Sword is back again (don't know why).
       

       
      I like this new hammer man
       

       
      The ugly rectangular shield unit with hammers is back (the only returning unit).
      They really should've fixed those shields and the "3rd edition/Dragonpunk helmets".
       

       
      The Bloodbowl team is back as well (obviously).
