More Anthropomorphic Woodland Animals from Oathsworn and new ‘Flash’ Kickstarter

They have been finished for awhile and pics sitting to be posted, so I thought with Oathsworn running a modest one-day ‘flash’ Kickstarter for some more fantastic Anthropomorphic Fantasy Woodland Animals in 28mm that I should post this in their honour/tribute.

Check it out here – Burrows & Badgers: New Blood.

And also to say thanks for creating such great miniatures. My support is guaranteed.

These guys join the ‘growing’ ranks of these miniatures and Haggis of course. Still quite a few of them (and other Oathsworn miniatures) to complete…

Oathsworn bonanza: New KS arrives and painted critters

Last post of the month and it really has to be dedicated to Oathsworn Miniatures. Their recently funded Kickstarter campaign “Heroines in Sensible Shoes” arrived a couple of days ago and the miniatures look as good in the flesh (or better even) than promised.

I’m not going to bother posting any pictures of ‘lead’ as you can see the details here if you wish – but I will add that Jo and Michael packaged their figures up very well indeed using a couple of plastic boxes which in themselves will be useful for other things! Hurrah!

Eye Candy wise though I, coincidentally, recently finished off the first batch of Oathsworn Burrows & Badgers miniatures I mentioned in a previous post. Avid readers may recall the issues I had with my first B&B miniature “Haggis” and how I stopped and started as I struggled with Non Metallic Metal painting.

However, once the dust had settled on that little escapade the next few were a breeze and delight to paint and I’m well pleased with how they have turned out. I also completed a couple of dwarves which I will post about another time.

The ‘Haggis’ is ready for devouring: Oathsworn pussycat completed

As avid followers will know (chuckles to himself) I was struggling somewhat trying to get Non-metallic-metal to work for this great miniature from Oathsworn.

My first and second efforts were not happy – and I appealed to the wider community for some input which I received many a useful comment and link to online tutorials. I did have another run at the sword in particular (and I was sure I’d taken pictures but for the life of me cannot find them right now). It remained “okay” but I didn’t get that “finished!” feeling we all look for when painting something up.

I had Haggis propped in a prime eye-ball position and mulled over what to do for a good number of weeks. Try again or go metal? Well the other day I said enough is enough and went with the latter. I laugh at myself now but within a minute or two of applying the base coat a great sense of relief came over me – “that was more like it!” I thought to myself.

WIP for the New Year: The 28mm Bubble Bursts

I thought a little hobby update for the end of the year – which was a couple of days ago now.

The 28mm bubble has truly burst wide open. If I’m not careful I’ll inundate myself with so much new lead that I’ll be turned off the scale again!

In the last couple of months I’ve jumped on (belatedly) to another KS, made a couple of eBay ‘bargain’ buys and bought new stuff from retailers. Continue reading WIP for the New Year: The 28mm Bubble Bursts

More confessions

As agreed, Jo at Oathsworn got in touch regards their recent Kickstarter. As you may have read I recently invested in the full range of their earlier Kickstarter.

Well, despite the ‘gamer guilt’ of doing that and despite being torn with my commitment to 15mm, I managed to out do myself again. I must admit, I was more controlled with respect to how many of the current KS miniatures I bought – only 9 compared to the whole range last time. However, I did make the mistake of looking at even earlier Oathsworn KSs and foolishly asked the question regards availability of the older models. Jo is far too good at customer services!

Sadly not all 16 of the dwarves from this KS were in stock. I had to settle for 12. And of the halfling Kickstarter – I am only getting 8 from that particular KS.

It’s almost like a mental floodgate has opened now that I have decided that it is now okay for me to dabble once again in the 28mm scale. Continue reading More confessions

Gamer Confession: Burrows and Badgers; adding to the Lead Pile

Last night my daughter (Alex, 14) came in to some ‘pocket money’ and started to talk about how she was going to dash out and spend it on some clothes she had been eyeing up. Being the diligent and responsible (ha!) father I started to talk about ‘saving’ and ‘did she really ‘need’ those clothes?’ Continue reading Gamer Confession: Burrows and Badgers; adding to the Lead Pile
