Burrowed and Badgers Shrew's, Mouse and Mole

Got a good number of Burrows and Badgers minis finished this week. Four to be exact. First up is the shrewzerker who I have named Brak

Next up if Fimbul the mouse knight.

Third one finished is the mole blacksmith who I struggling to think up a suitable name for.

Sir Delegar the Shrew knight and his trusty erm steed. Bit of an experiment with paint the stag beetle. I painted the chitin a plate mail colour then used various purple, green and blue washes layered to build up the colours.

Plans for the weekend including a visit to Matlock in Derby for my second 7TV day of the year. I will try and take plenty of pics and post a report up next week.

Burrows and Badgers Mole Warrioress and Mouse Nun

Continuing on very much with the Burrows and Badgers minis this week I have got another pair finished. The Mole Warrioress who I have named Gwern and a Mouse Nun who I shall use as a mage called Lilith.

The Mole  who I intend to use as a knight has had a freehand emblem painted on her shield  copied from the Beaver that I have to gpt in the queue. 

It is not quite central but I am still please with it. More practice in where to start is need I think.

Burrows and Badgers Mice

More work continues on my Burrows and Badgers pile. I want to field an all mouse warband next time we play the game so have selected some more mice and got them on the paint table.

Sir Garrick the mouse Knight. Sir Garrick will be my second with the voice of Command skill.

 Tobias the Marksmouse.

Flossy The Dormouse archer.

My all mouse warband managed to squeeze in 7 mice into it for 350 pennies.

Burrows and Badgers Squirrels and Scatter Terrain

I appear to be burning with enthusiasm for Burrows and Badgers at the moment and this week has seen me get three more figures finished from the leadpile. I have a game at my local store planned to get a run through proper of the rules and want to them a Squirrel heavy list as they are some of my favourites from the various books I have been reading from the Redwall and Mice of Camelot series.

First up a Squirrel Magic user (a witch according to he website) whom I fancy could work out as a druid type warrior or ranger as well at a pinch. I went with a blue dress more to tie in my Squirrel Knight to the group a bit.

 A Squirrel Rogue or ranger I tried to stick to neutral colours with this and the ranger below tying them with the witch through the same cloak colour and the red fur with the knight.

 One of my faves from the kickstarter that arrived a few months back was the Squirrel Ranger. I really love the sculpt. I may pick up some more of this one and the rogue and do either Grey or Black Squirrels versions. I'd like to convert one to carry some javelins but the Rogues pose is probably better suited to that one.

All four of my Squirrels together

My 350 penny warband for Thursday nights game. I went with Royalists so two additional members of my warband may increase their strike stats by 1.

The Squirrel Knight is my leader with Heavy Armour, Polearm and Taunt skill. I increased his Strike stat for the game.

My Second is the Ranger I have given him Fast Shot and loaded him with Bodkin and Broadhead Arrows.

The Barn Owl counts as a Medium Raptor and is quite a formidable warrior so I just gave him some Heavy Armour and increased his Strike stat by 1

The Rogue I gave two weapons giving him +2 bonus to his strikes and throwing daggers for a bit more range punch. I also increased his Strike stat by 1

The Magic User I loaded up with a mage focus (+1 to cast rolls), A mage pouch to carry herbs (Herbs either help cast a spell some automatically and sometimes to augment  or add on more utility to your spells) For spells I chose Cure (well to obviously heal) and Haste ( to give the target an extra action) nasty If I can pull it off with my second and Fast Shot.

Scatter Terrain
 I chopped up some more of my grass samples and I am a bit happier with them now. I dug out some other pieces from my collection that I felt would fit a Fantasy theme. So all my trees, a shed from 4 Ground, some hedges and my LOTR Ruins.

I need to get some big buildings or hills I reckon to block LoS and force movement a bit more. The grass will count as difficult terrain.
