Burrows and Badgers Tobias the Ranger

Had a few hours spare here and there this week. So got my first Burrow's and Badger's figure finished. They are really nice to paint plenty of detail yet simple enough to do without any fiddly bits. I have decided to name this one Tobias and he is a Mouse Ranger.

The base was my usual putty method painted Gorthor brown, washed in strong tone ink then once the figure was finished and varnished. I added some Coarse Flock, Winter tuft and some Clump Foliage. I tried to place it so it looked like he was tracking or sneaking through.





The next two characters are also wip this time the two Pirate themed Shrew's not sure what to do with the female ones jacket and top as yet. Once fully basecoated will begin the shading washes.

  5. The mouse looks great, especially where you photographed it, lots of atmosphere.
    Great start on the shrew's for the jacket you could do rich bold colours, reds blues yellows or if their not very good at being pirates, very muted colours, greens or browns

    1. Thank you Dave. Yeah I need to sort out some lighting and background. I am experimenting in locations around the garden.

      I wen for reds in the end and a cream/tan for the coat. I have gone for stripes on the trousers. Got to do highlights and some drybrushing in the next session. Hopefully they will be done in one more maybe two.
