As you may remember, I've started to take some commission work for my board games group. Just recently I was asked (I may have hinted really, really heavily) to paint the miniatures from a really cool looking RPG board game - Stuffed Fables. By Plaid Hat Games, the folks behind "Mice and Mystics - fast becoming a favourite of mine, this game pits an unusual band of heroes called "The Stuffies" against the evil "Crepitus" This is the blurb from Plaid Hat...
Sworn to protect the little girl that loves them, a group of stuffed toys has been drawn into the Fall, an otherworldly, fantastic realm ruled by a brooding master of nightmares.
The miniatures are amazing if not a bit chibi like...
|on my painting table, ready to go!|
Anyway, so far I've managed to paint half of the heroes and some of the villains and here they are. Starting with the good guys, first up is "Lumpy" the stuffed elephant, armed with a meat mallet!
Next is Piggle - he has the top of a Play-doh can for a shield and a baby rattle for a club - nice!
Finally for the heroes, this time - Lionel. Players can't choose Lionel at the beginning of the adventure as he has to be unlocked later on in the game.
Now for some bad guys, i'm gonna leave the main protagonists until the next post I do about these minis. So in the meantime, we have the Mongrels - these mechanical hounds serve the Nightmare King, hunting through the corridors of his castle.
Next are the Dark Hearts, these heartless creatures are made up of discarded socks and other cloth bits. Yes, the hole goes right through them!
Now for the really creepy toys - The Crawlies! These hermit crab like mechs, make their homes in the heads of dolls....
