Last year, we started a new range of female adventurer miniatures for use in RPGs and tabletop gaming, or simply for painters and collectors. Although there are loads of male miniatures available already, there are a lot less female ones... and they are more often dressed for a swimsuit contest than for serious dungeon-delving!
We decided to sculpt some no-nonsense, sensibly dressed and equipped female adventurers; providing an alternative to all the chainmail bikinis that are so common in tabletop.
Our £1800 goal will go towards paying for the moulding and casting of at least 12 new models. The miniatures will be cast in white metal, and you can see pictures of the master sculpts ('greens', as they are known) further down the page.
Below you'll find pictures of the sculpted miniatures; we'll be adding to them as we go...
'Tabaxi has wares, if you have coin...' No, hang on, wrong game!
They may look gentle, but don't try building a highway through a firbolg's forest...
She's as deadly as she is beautiful... well, beautiful to another hobgoblin, anyway!
Is she a Kenku or an Tengu? Depends on whether she's in D&D or Pathfinder, I guess...
She's a fighter or a barbarian; but she'd make a good rogue swashbuckler too...
You get the five miniatures shown above, and the next seven shown below...
She's a noble heroic paladin... or maybe a chaotic evil hell-knight. Could go either way!
Dragonborn - maybe a fighter, a paladin or a cleric?
Another Tiefling - she looks relatively harmless, but I reckon you should expect some dark arts...
As well as the Pledge levels, you can add any or all the of the Sensible Shoes miniatures from our previous projects, either as discounted sets, or as individual miniatures.
Oathsworn is the trading name of Jo and Michael Lovejoy; a pair of sculptors, gamers and general scifi fantasy obsessives from the North-east of England. We've been in the industry for many years now, and have run eleven Kickstarter projects; all of which were delivered on time or early.
Risks and challenges
The main risks are getting the miniatures safely moulded, and then producing enough casts to satisfy demand.
Thankfully both these problems come down to the skill and experience of the sculptor and the mouldmaker. And we've been doing this for a long time now, with 11 projects all completed, and delivered on time.
In short, we're not expecting any problems, but if we have some, we'll keep you informed, and we'll deal with them professionally.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
