Does anyone make a 25/28mm coyote?

Not a wolf or dog, but an actual coyote, the mangier the better.

In 28mm you can tell the difference? I would have used a 'German Shepherd' dog model, most models that I have seen tend to look pretty mangy, just trim & bend the tail, file off the collar if there is one present.

I've spent a life time dealing with real coyotes so my level of noticing is probably a might bit higher than for most folks.

Cory,

I know some of the people you hang out with… yes, on the mangy end….

Any model sold as a German Shepherd that can be converted into a coyote, probably didn't look much like a German Shepherd to start with . . .

Would the 28mm jackals from Crocodile Games be a good enough match? Here's one: link

The muzzle may not be quite pointy enough for a coyote. But then in a couple it isn't quite pointy enough for a jackal either. grin

Stronty Girl, thanks for the heads up on those, but I'll probably go with something longer in the body.

It's hard as we are used to 28mm distortions of the human shape for aesthetic and molding reasons, but when it comes to animals those same issues can be big red flags.

I know someone did make them… either Foundry or the old HLBS miniatures… I think North Star sells those now.
