Burrows and Badgers Brigadier Basil Fleetfoot Hare Knight

Another B&B miniature finished this week. This time the Hare Knight who I have named Brigadier Basil Fleetfoot. I love the Hare characters in the Redwall series and they all have very military ranks that don't seem to follow any form other than for names sake but they all speak very posh as well in the audio books so it its quite fitting really. I didn't quite get the fur colour I was going for with this one but I am still very pleased with it none the less. More rabbits and Hares are in the range still so will try again with one of those.

Brigadier Fleetfoot is on of the bigger creature in the Oathsworn Range and as such comes on a 40mm base and is nearly 36mm tall. Though not the biggest the badgers and such are nearly 46mm-50mm in height.






A group shot of them all so far. Once I have the next figure finished I plan to start working out some warbands out of what I have so I can start have a play with the game system.

    1. Yeah when trying to decide which figures to buy he went straight in the basket first!

      The Redwall hares are brilliant daring do type characters. Heroic last stands and brave charges.

  9. I'm currently reading "Lord Brocktree" to get 'into' Redwall and the B&B genre, and I absolutely LOVE the hares (wot!). You've done a cracking (and inspiring) job on Brigadier Fleetfoot, and the group shot is excellent :-)

    1. Thanks Stuart. Not sure yet it uses opposed rolls for most things where you have to roll higher than your opponent. I will try and do a report of some sort.

  14. I must admit I struggled with this one myself, there's lots of armour and hares are not known for their colourful fur either. Making money look a bit bland. Yours does look excellent though!
