First we have the Archer clearly he spends his days hunting cats to protect the mousling community
These are 25mm figures and Reaper gets some nice details on the figures like the stitching on the quiver.
Next we have the mysterious forest mouse who lives out side the keep... I gave him a little bet of unkempt and dirty look.
He has some strange powers drawn form his shining ball.
I don't have a clever designation for this fellow yet. He strikes me a the local boy swept up in the great adventure by fate. He has a sword, a fairly big one (for a mouse) so maybe Martin (a hero from the early Redwall books.
The yellow scarf really pops against his gray-green cloak a suggestion from Ariana on color. I think it will catch a child's eye.
The Bee boy. Clearly inspired by falconers this mousing trains bumble bees to hunt? or maybe scout? I don't know exactingly how he uses the bees but I really love the idea this is one of my favourite sculpts.
I decided to do this odd patter on his cloak he has spent so long with the bees he has started to dress like one.
Sneaky mouse, clearly he is up to no good! or maybe hes coming back from a foraging mission of some sort. He might have just got caught was his little dagger is drawn.
The patch on the sack is a nice touch, clearly he has had a successful trip hope he can escape who or what has caught him.
The Girl archer I love the holly leaves and berries on quiver.
I tried to get her to look like the male archer in coloration I figure they are brother and sister.
Every band of adventures needs a wizard! you can't quite see them in the picture but he has spectacles balanced precariously on the end of his nose. I also like his busy eye brows.
Ariana suggested the yellow color of the wand making it look a bit less like a stick and more like lightning or some mystical energy jumping from his hand.
The Princess my least favourite figure but I suppose heroes need some one to rescue. I toyed with painting her the same colors as the archer mouse suggesting secret identity but decided against it.
I did try to make hem of her dress a little dirty like she regularly escapes her escorts and goes skipping though the woods and fields on her own.
Ariana suggested the color combination and I think this looks quite nice. I figure she and the Bee boy may be related.
King mouse! Somebody has to be in charge! and clearly he is the mouse, Ariana said he has angry eyebrows maybe someone has just told him of the princess's running off on some adventure with the young mouse with the scarf?
I think the cloak came out well and I like his acorn sceptre, clearly acorns are the source of the kingdom's wealth.
My favourite figure the Samurai Mouse! I am tempted to name him Splinter clearly his is an important ambassador from a far ways kingdom of mice. Not sure what he is doing here but he looks fabulous in his yellow kimono and top knot hair due.
I decided to decorate his kimono with orange and red flowers. I am very pleased with how this came out.
Two group shops.
I just painted the bases as I plan on using these with kids and I don't want flock coming off and getting eaten. There are ten 25mm figures here for a total of 50 points. I had hoped to enter these in the comedy round but they didn't arrive in time.
Very, very cute figures Adam! I have a sneaking suspicion that you'll be all the rage with your nephews when you drop by to visit. My favourite has to be the Samurai mousling with the yellow kimono, though the one with the bee has to be a very close second. Wonderful stuff and well done.
