#6MMRPC - Dark Ages - Livestock

I wanted some animals to populate parts of the planned dark age settlement - I finished painting these a few weeks ago.
This donkey and foal are from Forlorn Hope Games - nice enough figures but perhaps a tad small alongside the rest of my dark age figures - not too bad though. Very simple paintjob, but then there isn't a great amount of detail on the figures.
I needed these for the Song of Shadows and Dust rules from Ganesha Games - my plan is to reskin the game from Roman/Greek towns to a Viking trading town. In game, the donkey can kick folks that get too close.
Chickens from Warbases - in SoSaD there are rules for geese/poultry - they can muck up a stealthy approach by kicking up a racket in surprise. 
Finally, hogs! These are the lovely Iron Age Pigs from Warbases. I really enjoyed painting these - I now need to build them a pen.

Comments and suggestions are most welcome - thank you for reading!

  1. You're knocking this stuff out at one hell of a rate, and it's all really good. Particularly jealous of your poultry and pigs!

  3. Very nice. The livestock will add a lot of character to games. The chickens are my favorite.

    1. I thought so Cameron - great to populate the planned farmstead and then town.

  4. Totally dig the life stock. They are great for looting/theft scenarios, and add a lot of life to the table otherwise.

    1. Perfect for that sort of thing! I wish I had some Vikings with a pig under their arms or the like :)
