Eureka produce flocks of 28mm goats, primarily for their Afghan range. Nice models too.

Thanks for the info.

This one? Unfortunately no image but pricing is very good.

Good little review - can you remember to give us a side-by-side with the Pegasus goats when they come in?

Here you go.

The plastic goat 'beauty parade':



HORNBY 1/72
PEGASUS 1/48
MEYER (modified, awaiting new ears)
MEYER 1/43?

All are female except the little Hornby. I expect to have 7 Pegasus and 18 Meyer in one or two flocks. I also expect to modify all of the Meyer into shorter Anglo-Nubians, with shaved back heads and green stuff floppy ears. The Meyer's thicker legs will be obscured by base vegetation.

If I could get a big flock of the Pegasus, I'd be very happy with that, but at only 2 goats per box it's potentially a very expensive way of doing it.

I'm surprised at the obsession with plastic instead of metal goats.

After all, I'd heard that sheep need to be driven, but goats must be lead.

A better image of 19th c Afghan with goat!

From the Illustrated London News of (I think, it is a little blurred) 18th April 1885, hillmen travelling through the Bolan Pass:

Sir, I salute and applaud your skill at puns!  lol

On a general note, I love how on LAF we can have these super serious discussion on the best plastic goats for a particular region, and make pun all the way.

I'm more interested in the dog, and wondered, who puts a bitch on their ass?

Steve: You really do need to make a figure humping his goat around like the fella in that picture.
