Halloween Special: A Medley of 28mm miniatures

When I say “Halloween Special” I do think the Zombicide Abominalpha is pretty monstrous and suitably ‘horror’. Likewise the two pistol wielding miniatures look very ‘Van Helsing-like’ to justify the otherwise loose use of the Halloween phrase in the post title.

That aside, these are a ‘random’ collection of miniatures that I decided to paint up – random in the sense that over time there are certain miniatures in your collection that frequently pop in to your mind from time to time, almost asking “Why have you not painted me yet?” These are a few of the lucky few that I actually decided that they had been waiting long enough already.

First up, the Zombicide Abominalpha from Black Plague. In the first picture next to a standard size 28mm from Hasslefree Miniatures.

More Anthropomorphic Woodland Animals from Oathsworn: Marmot and Otter

It was a number of years ago that I first came across Oathsworn Miniatures and have acquired (if not painted) quite a pile of lead from them. Never disappointed with anything I’ve bought from Michael or Jo who also happen to be excellent.

The dwarves and sensible shoes miniatures are fantastic but it is the Burrows and Badgers anthropomorphic miniatures that really attract me to Oathsworn. Whilst I have curbed my purchasing of miniatures in general over the last couple of years it is with great pleasure that I continue to see Michael and Jo’s business go from strength to strength. Join their communities on Facebook – Oathsworn and a dedicated Burrows and Badgers group.

It has been a while since I painted up any B&B lead in my possession so took the time to pick out a couple more recently – the excellent Landsknecht style Otter and the heavily armoured Marmot. More will follow.

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…

Gamer Confessions: Those bloody (Kickstarter) buses…

If you back a Kickstarter you hope its going to be fulfilled. Even better when it’s on time. But I wasn’t prepared for them all arriving at the same blinking time! I’m sure their creators have conspired to have delivery of pledges all to fall in the same space of a few weeks.

Here is the confession – what I’ve received in the course of the last few weeks, why I fell for it in the first place and what I thought of the goodies when they arrived.

Scoring
Summary Verdict:
 High is good.
Guilt Burden: Low is good.

Zombicide: Black Plague
First off a real chunk of gaming-goodness arrived – Zombicide Black Plague in it’s entirety (Base game + expansion and add-ons). In short, nigh on two hundred 28mm miniatures (no, I’m not going to count them).
Summary Verdict: Awesome. I was hopeful for good quality (for plastic) miniatures and was suitably pleased. 9/10
Guilt Burden: Massively intimidating number of miniatures to paint – and that’s just the cool player characters and big monsters. 10/10

Dungeon Forge – In my pocket
At the price point, I couldn’t resist this neat little dungeon crawl set of terrain and miniatures from Spain. Very nice in the flesh. Scales great with 15mm. Already painting it up. Considering returning for more dungeon furnishings. Quite a lot of painting to get it game ready.
Summary Verdict: Awesome. Heroquest in miniature. 9/10
Guilt Burden: Quite a lot of painting to get it game ready, but nothing taxing. 6/10

Heroines in Sensible Shoes
Big fan or Oathsworn so had to jump on this one. Great character sculpts for any number of skirmish game systems. I did resist jumping on to the second Kickstarter more recently due to bouts of leadenitus (guilt derived from amassing too much lead miniatures).
Summary Verdict: Always great miniatures from Oathsworn. 10/10
Guilt Burden: Modest number of 12 miniatures – but they demand a ‘good’ paint job. 6/10 Continue reading Gamer Confessions: Those bloody (Kickstarter) buses…

Oathsworn Dwarfs: Resist OTT

In addition to having a very large soft spot for Oathsworn’s Burrows and Badgers range of anthropomorphic fantasy woodland creatures, I must also confess to liking both their dwarfs and halflings as well. (As well as their recently funded Kickstarter campaign “Heroines in Sensible Shoes” which has since been followed up with another Kickstarter along the same lines.)

As I now juggle between both 15mm and 28mm on a more regular basis it feels like ‘overall’ progress slows right down (you’d expect a 28mm miniature to take twice as long to paint as a 15mm but in reality – for me – it’s more like 3 times if not more).

Here are a couple of dwarves painted up – several more to follow along with a generous amount of halflings to boot. Show these guys your support for the smaller business by buying here.

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.
