About

Oakbound Studio are proud to present a little kickstarter for the latest miniatures in The Woods folklore fantasy range: THE THREE HEDGE-PIGS AND THE BIG BAD WULVER.

This is a short and sweet campaign for a small handful of miniatures which we hope will bring flavour, joy and new experiences to your wargame and roleplay tables.


There are seven miniatures in this campaign: three pixies, three badgers and the wulver. All miniatures are cast in lead alloy and will be supplied unpainted without bases. They are single-piece castings with no need for assembly except to stick riding pixies to their badger mounts. This is entirely optional, the pixies work as well on foot as they do on their noble steeds, and any pixie can be mounted on any badger. Sadly the wulver is a little too big and scary to ride a badger.


These miniatures have all been sculpted and master moulds made, the photos you see here are the actual, physical models cast from the master moulds and painted. They are shown mounted on 30mm bases for scale. Yes, they are quite tiny pixies and badgers... 



There are three levels of pledge:

The Three Hedge-Pigs gets you one of each pixie and one of each badger for £7. If you would like any additional miniatures simply add an extra £7 per set of pixies/badgers and £4 per wulver.

The Big Bad Wulver gets you one wulver for £4. If you would like any additional miniatures simply add an extra £7 per set of pixies/badgers and £4 per wulver. 

The Full Set gets you one of each pixie, one of each badger and one wulver for £10. If you would like any additional miniatures simply add an extra £7 per set of pixies/badgers and £4 per wulver. 

If you'd like to build a larger contingent of pixie badger cavalry you can pledge for Three Times Three Hedge-Pigs which gets you three of each pixie and three of each badger. That will let you build each combination of rider and mount, giving you 9 unique models. This £20 pledge saves you £1 on three separate pledges, every little helps.


The Bag o' Badgers pledge has been added by popular demand. If you just want a load of badgers and no pixies then this one's for you. 5 of each of the 3 badger sculpts (15 in total). The bag o' badgers is also available as an add-on for £25.


As well as more sets of pixies or wulvers you can add a dynadru (tree spirit) miniature by increasing your pledge by £4. This is a multi-part model and designed so that not only can you make it in several different ways but you can also make bigger and taller treemen by combining two or more sets.

Six bold gnawloch hunters have gone into the woods to track down the wicked wulver. This pack of spear-rats can be added by increasing your pledge by £10.

The Woodland Wildlife pack contains 10 small and tiny miniatures: a waterleaper, cuhuihui (winged cat), thrush and snail, owl, hedgehog, squirrel, three mush-men and a flying crow (not pictured). It can be added by increasing your pledge by £5.


The bag o' badgers is also available as an add on- 15 badgers for £25.



We're keeping this simple, but if we charge ahead and smash the goal quickly then we'll add in some extras, like more woodfolk and pixie variants. Expect treemen, weasily gypsies and mossy troll types...



These miniatures have been designed to represent pixie badger riders for Oakbound's game of folklore fantasy, The Woods. However, naturally, you can use them for any game you like!

We are using kickstarter to fund the moulds for these miniatures for two reasons. Firstly it has become standard practice for gamers to search kickstarter for new releases and such campaigns now make up a large proportion of overall sales for almost all small miniatures companies. Secondly we are afraid to say that we have been the victim of a scam this year when the first pritn run of our rulebooks were paid for but never delivered. This has meant we have had to divert all profits from our shop sales to repaying the loan we had to take to fund a second print run. Rather than pause new releases for at least 6 months we have decided to use kickstarter to keep them coming and keep the game well-supported. Don't worry, we have never had any problems with our caster and the loan will not affect the fulfilment of this campaign in any way, it's just business stuff!



We sort out postage when your pledges are ready to ship so that we have an accurate idea of the costs and don't have to charge you extra to make up the percentage kickstarter take off shipping payments. When your miniatures are ready you will receive a paypal invoice for the shipping cost, so please check your emails for updates. We anticipate that this kickstarter will turn around pretty fast as the initial mould is already made and there aren't too many figures in the set. If there are additional stretch goals added, however, please be aware these may take longer to ship.

We anticipate postage for 1 miniature to 1 full set will be:

UK First Class Signed £4.50

Europe Tracked and Signed £9.20

Worldwide Tracked and Signed £12.50

If you would prefer your miniatures sent with no tracking we can arrange this, but sadly cannot be responsible for anything that may happen to your miniatures in transit. Tracking allows us to keep tabs on your pledges and troubleshoot anything that may arise.

Risks and challenges

We have master moulds made by expert casters Macrocosm and the production run will be handled by them as well. We don't anticipate any problems and should be able to fulfil well ahead of schedule but, naturally, things can go awry. Should that happen we'll let you knwo as soon as possible. The few problems we have had with recent kickstarters have involved incorrect postal addresses or confusion in the postal system, so please make sure your contact details are up to date.
