15mm crows and ravens.

Post by paulgpotter » Tue Apr 12, 2022 11:20 pm

usable crows and ravens for use in 15mm are indeed hard to come by. I have paid big bucks for model railroad pieces that seem to be way over priced or settled with 25mm scale figs that are just to big. I would like crows/ravens standing, fluttering their wings and ones bending over and picking at the skin of the dead. If any fig maker or people who know fig makers are looking at this such would be a useful addition. No dark age battlefield is complete without crows or ravens.

...that will be difficult. 15mm is too tiny to show birds. But from PP there is: https://www.peterpig.co.uk/WESTERN%20Eagle.jpg a flying eagle. You could do any birds with green stuff or with card or a combination of both...

Nah, not that difficult. Thistle and Rose has a real nice 15mm crow standing on a helmet near the feet of a viking chieftain. Perfect size. I have even cut a few off to use elsewhere. My current go to is to cut the neck off of a 15mm goose and leaving a little neck stub to fashion into a crop head with a small pair of pliers. Works but not the same thing as having a professionally cast model.
