Burrows and Badgers Ferret Mercenary.

More Burrows and Badgers figures being worked on this week. I really enjoyed doing this one as its my first go at painting a Ferret. There isn't much fur on show really and I went for Sable Mask style markings. I think it would look better on one which was not wearing any head gear as you would be able to tell properply. I can't help but feel she has turned out a bit like a racoon!









Cat Duellist, Hedgehog Huntress, Mole Rogue and Miner WIP.

    1. Thanks Vagabond. The beauty of these miniatures is that they are quite large compared to normal 28mm and with there animal features much easier to paint and access the eyes.

    1. Thanks very much. Yeah I am trying todo that to give them more contrast. I have to get a rough idea of what fur colour I have in mind then plan the clothing etc colours accordingly.
