These sheep are from a long forgotten manufacturer, possibly associated with railroad accessories. My recollection is that I based them up on six 20mm by 20mm cardboard bases to be used for DBM. As I never took to DBM I was lucky to be able to use them for DBA and later FoG and now Impetus. Only trouble was that the bases had warped and had all got too fiddly. Something had to be done.
And so they have been sliced from the cardboard squares and rebased on to MDF rectangles.
One DBA camp sized flock with the obligatory black sheep.
The other DBA camp with tuft. Note a bit of the old flocking around the centre sheep.
Not sure what caused the effect, but I like it.
And here we have an Impetus camp. The camp followers having just apprehended a sheep fancier and are reading out his punishment as the man with the big staff steps forward to administer it.
I suppose I could have called this post, Debasing the Sheep.
The important thing however is to get them into action and I've thought of the appropriate game/armies to use with them tonight. Stay tuned.
