Burrows and Badgers Shrews Grifty and Mimsy.

Thoroughly enjoying these figures from Oathsworn Miniatures this time we have a pair of pirate themed Shrews. The figures have nice chunky details which are nice and easy to paint and lots of great textured fur areas. As a bonus everything has been in a single piece so no filling or faffing with bits to pin!

Tough decisions ahead on which one to paint next. Hmm Squirrel Knight or Adder Mage?

    1. Thanks Dave. I am pleased with how they turned out. I got mistaken with the jacket not realising it was a waistcoat.

  7. I call foul! I’ve seen neither a badger, nor a burrow. This is more Shipwrecks & Shrews. Fake news. Sad.

    Lovely stuff.

  13. Bright and vivid colors are so spot on. They look great. I'm pretty sure your daughter would want a game with these minis as well!

  14. Wow, these are great!

    Had a dog that got bitten by a shrew once - bloody thing wouldn't let go either. Luckily it's tiny teeth couldn't get through her fur, but she yelped like she'd had her leg chomped off!

  16. I'm enjoying seeing these figures painted; nice work!

    Next? Hmm, I'm not convinced by the adder/snake miniatures, so I vote for the squirrel!

    1. Cheers Wouter. I loved doing these and I am experimenting very much more with patterns. When I get around to some of the other figures Tartan is one of the things to try and accomplish.
