Reaper has a townsfolk pack with chickens in it, which you can buy by the sprue:

Matakishi had mentioned the Amazon chickens at Frother's. He had even posted a picture.



And then there is Mirliton, which I've seen in the flesh and quite like. They look a bit rough on the picture but painted they looked great.

I used those for my LPL5 Smut Valley Cattle Market. I am not very keen on them, a tad to crude and mono-pose. The Pegasus Hobbies set look like the shit, IMO.

Geez! I guess with a name like Honey Badger you gotta be tough.  lol

"Fuck you, bee! I want that honey! Give it up or I'll rip you a new asshole!"  lol

There's a clip on youtube of a honey badger going head to head with a leopard. It behaves like it's from the worst parts of New Jersey.

It must have some Piney blood in it then. You don't mess with residents of the Pine Barrens.  >:D

Damn it!  There are not TOO many chickens.  These are all 25-28 mm.  Where the hell are the ones in 15 mm?  >:(

Okay, well, Museum Miniatures does have some and I did get some but you Big Boy boys are spoiled for choice - even for chickens!   lol

I hate to say it but the average chicken in your average developing world country looks nothing like the average plump egg layer found  elsewhere and thus not a lot like the Architects of War versions. At least the ones I've seen haven't. They tend to a rather lean rangy look. Wiry looking racing chickens. But as these are toys or tokens I suppose anything is cool.

Dunno whether they are widespread across Africa but there's a rather peculiar but not unattractive breed found in Angola. They have these in Brazil too where they are called galinha d'Angola, literally Angolan Chickens.

You know, I think you can take the search for accuracy a little too far. I'm not really all that bothered if my chickens are too fat, as long as they look like chickens.  ;)

Besides, apart from the red robes and war paint this Masai chicken here looks no different to me to the Welsh ones that I remember growing up on a farm in my youth.




Their coops are a little different, though...



Masai walker for VSF, anyone? :)

She already knows how to wring a chickens neck?! Awww, you brought her up well!

On a serious note, you have a darling daughter, sir.
