Burrows and Badgers the Fox Rogue

My 10th figure finished for Burrows and Badgers and more or less gives me enough for two equal size warband of the same size creatures. I really liked the studio colour scheme that was done on this figures so I more or less copied it only changing the daggers cross guard and handle colours to a bone looking colour just out of preference.

Another enjoyable figure I added some broken bits of twig I found somewhere. Some has been using dried ill weed as a basing material so I may pick some up from the herbs and spices isle next time I go shopping to have a bit of experiment.

I quite fancy doing a black fox at some point whilst looking up real life ones to find how to the fur it was quite surprising how many variations they come in especially the amount of black you sometimes find in there fur.




Next up will be some stuff that I have had a bit of a painting block. I have finally worked out what I am going to do with them now. So plan to spend the next week getting the 8 of them done to clear the paint table down a bit.

  3. The fox looks fantastic Simon, like your colours on the fur, I believe the difference in the fur colours, are down to the areas they live in, the darker tones being in areas of more industry and people to help camouflage themselves into the background

    1. Thanks Suber I really enjoyed working on him and trying hard to make the different areas not merge into the same colour to much.

  8. That’s one foxy miniature!
    (Someone had to say it).
    He looks slightly like a character from that old Disney version of Robinhood with the foxes. But more badass and dangerous ­čśÇ
