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)

      Story
      It was the Baron himself who nailed up the poster in Midlam the town square.
      WANTED:  LADY WILDWOOD and sundry associated gang members - For Murder, extortion, petty theft and highway robbery.  REWARD - 10 Gold Coins for Lady Wildwood and 1 Gold Coin per gang member.
      Speculation and rumour was rife!  Who were these new Bandits that were plaguing Midlam?  Who was the mysterious and dangerous Lady Wildwood? It seemed that the town had been under siege, first from Captain Grief's Gang and then the Hobgoblin Rainding Party, and now this gang of merciless women!
      Bounty hunters muttered in dark corners of Inns, looking for information and squads of Town Guard regularly marched out into the surrounding countryside in their pursuit.  
      But still the robberies and raids continued...
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume Two
      A gang of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, lead by the Notorious Lady Wildwood, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One
      You can also, should you wish, include our first bandit gang with your pledge.  Captain Grief's Gang is a series of of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, including the original stretch goal 'George the Grind'.  You could then mix and match your bandits or have them as deadly rivals!

      It's only an 11 day  project, so hury up and back.

      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!
