The Mighty Dunger Herd

Straight out of the Oldhammer-West and onto your tabletop!  The Dunger herd has arrived.

As my setting pushes ever further into a space western I felt like I needed some space cattle to herd around.  Ramshackle Games had the perfect answer with their Dungers. 

They remind me of Bantha's or the aurochs from one of my favorite games Kingdoms of Amular.


I decided to go with a bright other world scheme, thanks to Cheetor  who already did his herd in turquoise.  I decide on purple and turquoise as Cheetor is talking about bringing his herd over in November for Monolith-con.  It would be cool if the herd's are tied together with the turquoise.

There are so many scenarios we can run with them.  Get the Dungers to market, rustling the Dungers, Dunger revenge stampede for killing a calf...




 ...the possibilities are endless.


Here we have a civilian party heading out on a long journey with their pack Dungers.



As the dry season begins the Dunger herds migrate to the watering holes.


Though danger is always lurking in the wild...this time wolves.  Next time could be a hungry hill giant.

Next up hopefully will be the start of my Noresmian nights project.  Though I really need to start getting my BOYL projects painted.

  2. Spot on with the colour choices - they feel very natural in your setting because of the exaggerated expressions and vibrant colours. I'm fond of a herding game myself you know :)

    "UNITE THE HERDS"

    The herd looks fantastic Grover! Its a while since I painted mine but I remember the process being fast and fun, I'm guessing that you felt similarly.

  9. They turned out great Gover. With all that detail they must have been fun to paint up too. Have you decided how you'll use them yet? As defenceless cattle or dangerous fauna like Grox?

    And yes, you should really get a move on with BOYL prep....as should we all :P

    Great addition to your collection MMMMEEEECCCCCCC!!!!!!!

    1. Thanks Erasmus...I think they can be used for docile or aggressive depending on what the scenario dictates.

      I'm getting all the Boyl stuff primed this week. It shouldn't take me to long to paint everything up. ;)
