Heavy Infantry Battalion Unit Filler - Donkey

Got the Donkey from The Assault Group (theassaultgroup-shop.co.uk/index.php?prod=943). A guitar cord acts as a rope and the annoyed face of the soldier makes it all come together quite nicely.

    Do you know what line the Donkey is from?

    So awesome to see other players who model pack mules and baggage trains. It really adds so much life to the game. Nice work!

      I agree! It's a bit difficult for Empire to come up with other common unit fillers though. For armies like Undead, Skaven or O&G you can pretty much do whatever and it will work. Zombie Ogre? Go for it! A goblin jumping on a giant pumpkin? Sure! A clanrat crawling out from an underground pipe? Absolutely! For Empire though, you need something that'd make sense in a structured, close to real life army. Supply trains is one of the few things that will regularly work.

      Exactly! All great ideas you have...I remember what first inspired me to start collecting Skaven. It was way back in like 6th or 7th Edition of WHFB. In a White Dwarf magazine they showed a photo of Skaven attacking a village, and there's some Skaven coming up out of a covered water well! I just thought that was the coolest thing I ever saw!

      Did you end up making something like it? I've been collecting Skaven since the start of 6th but I took a long break to start Empire so I haven't made any unit fillers for them yet.

      I never actually made that specifically, but it did inspire me to collect Skaven and make themed terrain for them. I do still want to go back and try something like that, wouldn't be too hard to do. I have plenty of 28mm village wells to use.
