Burrows and Badgers Bobbo Dormouse Scout

A bit more ranged firepower as I didn't pick many of those in my first order. The only others are the throwing knife Shrew Pirate Here and Tobias the Mouse Ranger Here.

I went with more natural earthy looking colours with just his dagger/sword and buckler being a bit brighter. I am quite please I nicknamed him Bobbo after one of the dormice in Mariel of Redwall I recently read.

  3. Cute little bugger isn't he?

    The red buckler next to that nice green cloak works really well.

    1. Cheers Phil. I his cloak was like a camo green washed with athonian camoshade then I layered it back up to Camo green.

      The leather armour was Tau ochre, AP soft tone then again layered back up to the tau ochre with a bit ushabati bone added in the final highlights of the armour edges.

  5. Great work Simon,the colours work well together, with enough contrast to make it all easily identifiable

    1. Thanks Dave. Its what I have been wary of as with mostly having browns for furs it kind of makes you look at other colours for the armour.

  6. The “Burrows & Badgers” bonanza keeps on coming, Simon. Lovely work, and a welcome addition to your warband with his ranged attack clearly - just how important is range in the rule-set?

    1. Thanks matey! I am not sure yet but I think a mix will give you more options tactically. Especially against bigger creatures.

  7. It may e my imagination but he looks mischievous to me. A very ice mini and one that does make the game look appealing but at present it is still a NO from me )
