PostSubject: War Pigs!   Fri 30 Mar 2012 - 13:56

Hey everyone! I'm having a ton of fun with my Chaos Dwarfs in this campaign but after playing an Orc and Goblin player last night it's made me think about the next campaign I will be playing in. We are still several months away but that will just give me time to work on assembling models!

I was thinking of using the Orc rules (specifically: Sartosan Pirate ORcs) but using my Farrow models from Hordes. Essentially they're a bunch of pig men. The problem is, there's only a few types of Farrow models available and I'd be needing more variants if I wanted to have a proper looking warband!

Right now I have models with halberds/dbl handed weapons (slaughterhousers), handguns (Brigands), Hero with a pistol (Rorsh), a Troll (an actual troll model or use Brine), a Hero with a sword (Carver), Shaman (Bonegrinders)

Anyone know of any other pig models out there? If I don't find enough variation I may have to trash the idea.

Pigs come from Wyrd, Spinespur and Bruegelburg. Pig-faced humanoides come from Otherworld miniatures:

Other World Miniatures still make Pig Faced Orcs. Here's a link to their shop:

Thank you for the links! Those models look great but I'm curious about their size. Are they similar to GW figs? Smile

The Otherworld ones? It might not help much, but if you scroll down here a bit, in the post with the giant, there is one of the Pig Face- Minis with a ruler next to it:
