Unboxing Oathsworn - Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3 - Part Two

Oathsworn Miniatures might be better known to you for their anthropomorphic animal range 'Burrows and Badgers' but they've also launched several successful Kickstarters and product ranges of miniatures designed as female character models for various races from Pathfinder, Dungeons and Dragons and other similar systems. This 'Heroines in Sensible Shoes' range was recently expanded in another Kickstarter cunningly called Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3 which focused more on none-human races...

A couple of features on their previous Burrows and Badgers Kickstarter can be found HERE and HERE.

So here's a brief introduction in their own words...
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.
For want of a better system I'm just going to cover them in alphabetical order...In this second feature we'll cover the half of the twelve models created over this Kickstarter that we didn't look at in Part One...

As they can be used in a variety of systems these came without specific bases but I've placed them on circular 25mm ones so you can get an idea of scale. Their heights are shown in the bottom right hand corner of the picture at the top of each section. Each of the models is a single piece and requires only the most minimal of clean-up.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
Should you ever choose to purchase something based on one of my features or reviews then it would be nice if you could let the company know where the inspiration came from...who knows...they might be grateful to the poor unappreciated blogger who sent you their way...if however I've put you off a can keep that info to yourself...
