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.
My view on these models? Dwarf collectors are spoilt for choice when it comes to Dwarfs so it must be a hard sell. But these dwarfs from Oathsworn are certainly among the finest for sculpting and casting. Stylistically they stop short of being ‘over the top’ like so many other fantasy lines but with enough fantasy detailing to entertain the eye. A great balance in my opinion.
In a way, like Oathsworn’s recent ‘Heroines’ releases, they’ve shown restraint in their subject here as well, making for what should be classic and timeless miniatures.
