Once again, I've missed my self-imposed Sunday post. This is partly because I'm just not organised enough, but also because I can't even find time to read other people's blog posts with the attention they deserve, let alone write my own! Until I manage to sort things out a bit, here are some cows...
Warbases; I bought these at the recent Carronade show. I think I painted and finished them in under 2 weeks from purchase; this is probably some kind of a record for me! Usually models linger for months, years or (occasionally) decades before I complete them and apply that final coat of varnish.
This livestock will make very suitable objectives, obstacles or decorations for my games of SAGA; they are entirely appropriate for herds in much of Scotland. I don't know if Highland cattle are ever seen anywhere else in the world, though.
It's possible that I might also use them for rural scenarios in All Things Zombie as well. Although cows like this are generally peaceable creatures, I don't imagine that they'd take kindly to being assaulted by the walking dead. If they were cornered by zeds and couldn't escape then they might just fight back!
Lovely beasts and perfect for Saga.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Robert. They will indeed do very well for SAGA!Delete
I feel some pillaging coming on!ReplyDelete
Personally :-) ? Or were you merely suggesting that these would work well for a cattle-raiding game?Delete
Cracking models and a very nice paint job to boot too. I might track some of them down myself... though I'm not sure what I'd use them for :-)ReplyDelete
Warbases have all manner of interesting animal models :-) . While I can see how I might use deer, horses, cattle or sheep in my games, I'm not sure what I'd do with pheasants! Although they might be an interesting challenge to paint :-) ?Delete
Great looking cows... I to got the problem of not painting all of my minis and then they be left on a self or drawerReplyDelete
Thanks! These were so easy to paint that they weren't even put into a drawer or shelf - they just went straight onto the painting table!Delete
Those are some nice livestock. "Livestock" was deliberately chosen as a word and appropriate as you did mention zombies.ReplyDelete
I did mention the "Z" word, didn't I :-) . Not that I have any specific plans, but sometimes these juxtapositions trigger the imagination...Delete
Cattle vs. Zombies - what a bizarre concept! Chuckle! I'd watch it. :-)ReplyDelete
I think it would be something of a minority interest, though - wouldn't it :-) ?Delete
Very nice, always great to see them on a table....ReplyDelete
Thanks, Phil. I'm certain they'll be the target for a SAGA cattle raid sometime soon!Delete
Lovely hairy beasties C6!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Bob! They are indeed very hairy beasts, aren't they :-) ?Delete
They look great. I have some of those very same cattle - useful baggage for the Norse Gael. Did you pick up any of the Soay sheep as well?ReplyDelete
Thankls, Lee! No, I don't have any Soay sheep yet - though I will probably get some in the fullness of time :-) !Delete
Got Milk? Nice Cows mate. A worthy addition to the table no doubt they will vanquish all there enemies that come before them!ReplyDelete
Ha! Given the poor showing of some of my SAGA units, I wouldn't be surprised if they could be bested by a herd of cattle :-) . Thanks, Simon.Delete
