I've been casting about for livestock for my medieval village for a while now. I've looked at many varied options; the Pegaso set didn't have enough sheep, the Pendraken animals you got too many of anything! Then in October Warlord Games ran a free shipping deal and they had what I wanted, so I jumped on it. The sprue of plastic farm animals, the blister of metal sheep and a pack of tufts was enough to get the shipping deal.
The larger plastic animals come in 2 or 3 parts and required some gap filling putty.
After a bunch of Google searches for inspiration my village now has two cows
Eight sheep and a goat
Two stands of 4 sheep each would be too balanced and symmetrical. So I added the goat for some dynamic energy. The cattle and sheep are based on wooden oval craft shapes.
A donkey, 2 geese, 4 chickens, 2 ducks and a cat.
Mr. Tibbles and the waterfowl are based on the metal disks punched from holes in electrical boxes.
I used inks on the cows, donkey and chickens.
There is another cat curled up asleep, but I need to Google image search orange tabby cats in order to figure out how to get it looking the way I want. There is also a sow and two piglets which I'm trying to decide how to finish.
I based them with usage as objectives in mind. Those English or Goblins need something to loot after all.
