Once again these Iron Age Pigs proved too hard to resist after seeing them expertly painted by the talented Andrew Saunders on his weblog. I had toyed with the idea of painting them in a more commonly recognised pig pink, but the adorable stripes down the back of the piglets just had to be done – streaky bacon anyone?
I have to say that of the new ‘Warbases’ range that I’ve tried, these have been the best realised sculpts so far. That’s not to suggest that the others have been poor, far from it, in fact given the scale of the individual pieces ‘Warbases’ should be justly proud of the range, it was just that these stood out as been that bit better than the others.
Once again based on a variety of sizes of MDF discs and a little less static grass was used to give the illusion of mud for them to root in.
