Or an irritable donkey…
Here is this week’s work.
(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version):
Still mostly working on ancient subjects and mostly for Song of Shadows and Dust
“YOU DENSE, IRRITATING, MINIATURE BEAST OF BURDEN!!!”
A couple of Donkeys from Pegasus Hobbies farm animal set. They look a little small – mostly because they’re on REALLY BIG bases! I’ll be using these as “Irritable Donkeys” in Song of Shadows and Dust (it’s supposed to be “Irritable Mules”… but donkeys are all I’ve got…). They’re essentially a small area of dangerous terrain. We found that the mules/donkeys we had on regular-ish-sized bases weren’t much of an obstacle – perhaps our cities have been too open… for now we’ll try these larger bases… if it doesn’t work I can easily pop them off and put them on something else.
Piggy-wigs… also from the Pegasus Hobbies farm animal set.
A pig on his own… could be used as one that wandered off… or one that’s particularly independent minded… or Gryllus the Pig from The Pig Scrolls…
An element of Spear for my New Kingdom Egyptian DBA/HOTT army (though for soe reason I think they may be classified as “Blade”… figures are from Wargames Foundry
More Egyptians from Wargames Foundry - these lot are, I think, supposed to be commanders – but I figured I could used them as henchmen in an Egyptian faction in Song of Shadows and Dust.
Still more Egyptians from Wargames Foundry - these are supposed to be two guys practicing sword play, but, again, I figured they could be passed off as club wielding goons in the violent streets of some Mediterranean city…
STILL more Egyptians from Wargames Foundry - some heavy hitters – armed with bow and Kopesh.
The last of the Egyptians from Wargames Foundry - a slave girl.
I also did a few old Mega Miniatures, which, I think, were from a “Sultan’s Harem” pack.
Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:
Be nice if I could get back to gaming and posting reports… Hopefully by the end of the week… Otherwise – more Egyptians and other ancients!
