What makes Burrows & Badgers unique
Burrows & Badgers is a game that I came whilst wondering around a tabletop gaming convention called Salute, which is held annually.
I didn’t go to Salute with the intention of finding games like Burrows & Badgers, but with such eye-catching and original miniatures – I had to stop and take look. I needed to know what this game was all about, and I wanted speak to the creators behind it.
Burrows & Badgers sat unique and proud in an often serious sea of tabletop gaming, a world created by Oathsworn, knew how to have fun with skirmish gaming and how to create an enjoyable game that would bridge a gaping gap for young and old.
This is a game that marches to the beat of its own furry drum. The characters are original and expertly sculpted by Oathsworn.
You can read more about the game on their website.
About The Burrows & Badgers World
Burrows & Badgers is based in The Kingdom of Northymbra, a land in turmoil, King Redwulf is missing, and his son rules as regent in his stead.
Facing threats from within and without: growing dissention among the knights and nobles of the realm, whispers of revolution from the Freebeasts, Wildbeasts encroaching on the borders, and bandits of all stripes making the most of the chaos.
Your tabletop becomes part of the Kingdom of Northymbra, whose ruined villages, haunted forests, and misty marshes play host to brutal ambushes and desperate skirmishes.
Lead your warband from battle to battle, and uphold the name of your faction, whether you stand with Reinert’s Royalists, the Freebeasts of the Fox Families, or simply for your own glory or survival.
B & B In a Nutshell (or acorn)?
Burrows and Badgers is a game where you can either become an anthropomorphic animal villain, hero, or something in between. Will you save the day? Overthrow your enemies or do else something quite unexpected.
Each model in represents an individual character, and can be selected from a wide range of species – from the humble mouse to the mighty badger – and armed and equipped as desired. Scenarios link into ongoing campaigns, where heroes and villains may make their names and the assistance of infamous mercenaries might mean the difference between victory and defeat.
Burrows & Badgers is certain to entertain both children and adults alike, with masterfully sculpted miniatures created to suit a range of tastes and personalities. These little 28mm of furry bundles of armoured joy are just to hard to ignore!
Oathsworn is a friendly studio based in Northumbria in the United Kingdom. They are the creators of the game.
