I'm sure we had a discussion here some years ago about the odd things in mediaeval manuscript marginalia - someone else obviously thought it was a great idea too.

Killer Rabbits: Medieval manuscript art made into miniature

by Thomas Foss.

I don't do kickstarters - which is a shame because I like the idea of these - not entirely sure what I would do with them - but maybe people here would like them

Those are very appealing! :froth:

Certainly much better than the old Bunnies and Burrows figures from Grenadier:

Of course, those were from the crude old days in the mid-70's, so not really a fair comparison.

"Not entirely sure what I would do with them" is never a reason not to buy -- in fact, change "would" to "will", and you'll be quoting me, on a number of occasions when I was handing over money. :(

But I somehow suspect I'm not alone in this. 0;)

I wonder if they could be incorporated into the new version of B&B, also a Kickstarter?

The real surprise to me is that Nic at Eureka never got around to them. I guess they could go up against the frogs and mice, though.

Thanks for posting this, Bronny -- they do look really nice. I predict I'll find myself repeating my quote at some point. :P

Ah, thanks -- here they are:

Couple of examples:

No wonder I couldn't find them -- they were in "Pond Wars" for some reason. Sometimes Nic's organization is as whimsical as his figures.

They seem to be inspired by this:

I wonder how the two lines will match up, size-wise? Could make for some "interesting" games.

Right.
I have to stop reading this.
What the hell am I going to do with naginata wielding rabbit ffs?
Mediaeval European rabbits tunnel through the earth to fight Samurai coneys?
This is madness - yet I feel this strange urge...
