There were occupations known as a Bottom Knocker and also a Bumboat man. And there was a shortened version of Badger Baiter known as a  Badger, someone who was basically a pauper (and wore a badge with the letter 'P' to prove it, who went around trying to flog items door to door, hence 'badgering' people to pay for things. And of course there was the trade of bodger.

This (and other) project(s) of yours is truly a work of art and a great piece of inspiration. Looking forward to seeing more.

I agree the points about the fireforge plastics, but I might get some as well to mix up with Perry parts for my own Feudal Fantasy Force (FFF).

Fantastic painting on those retainers.  I have just put together my retinue and painting begins at the weekend.  Now I have some inspiration.  :D :D

Thanks gents  :)
Great suggestions for medieval occupations beginning with B. I can see I’d better get on and build some more peasants!  lol

Very nice work indeed. I look forward to seeing that right nasty peasant, Bob the Bastard.

Alrighty...

I had a kitbashing mood upon me this week...

Thanks for your peasant naming suggestions… I’ve made up a few more ruffians to fit.

So, just to recap, in the peasantry, with improvised weapons, we now have…

Bob the butcher – nuff said, with...
Bob the bowman, now an archer in the lord’s service, but from peasant stock, hence his vulgar manners…



Bob the bodger, he’s a woodsman, charcoal burner, and chairmaker, with...
Bob the blacksmith, an ugly brute with a mighty hammer.



Bob the baker, with his fancy liripipe hood.
Bob the bumboat man, with his trusty quarterstaff/punt, and his careworn gambeson, from his days in his lord’s military service.



Bob the builder, sledgehammer, ugly expression and fat gut (like most of the builders I know), with...
Bob the brewer, armed with his malt flail



These fellows are kit-bashed from parts from so many different plastic sets, I’ve literally lost count. A lot of Fireforge and Perry, but also Conquest, Frostgrave, Gripping Beast and Warlord.

I’m particularly proud of Bob the bodger, wild man of the coppice, who has a Perry Zulu body and arms (!) grafted onto a pair of Wargames Factory ancient Celt legs, a GW head of some variety from the bits box, and a Green Stuff hairy waistcoat!

I’ve also made up a few more armed retainers:

Ribaud the spearman, Begum the archer, and Cerdic the enforcer…

Bobbin' along just fine, I see.

Now you'll just need a Baron Robert (or a robber(t) baron) to lord it over those revolting peasants.
