I'm trying to find dead chickens, in a position as if they were being hung from their feet.

Thanks for the help

I think the old GW Brettonian archers box had one.

I'm afraid to ask about the scenario.

Maybe these could pass as chickens that were treated with lots of growth hormone:

This has to be one of the more unusual requests I've come across on TMP.

(Hope you find them, by the way!)

At least the scenario only calls for dead chickens. In China, I've seen other dead animals hung by their feet and offered for sale.

Thanks. The "scenario" is a figure conversion. I bought the Reaper bones dwarf pirate that's holding the pistol.


But I later realized the original metal figure was a butcher holding a chicken.

I'd like to convert the Bones version into the metal version. A fried does make the good point that it might be easier just to buy the metal version, but I like setting myself difficult tasks.

I should think it wouldn't be too hard to sculpt. And I say this as an absolute lummox in that area.

Determine what size of model railroad plastic figure equates to 28mm. Buy the chickens; cut off the bases; soften the figures in warm water; and flatten, etc. The chicken now = dead chicky.

I think Mirliton may have what you need: link

I myself think you should try your hand at sculpting the chicken.

Now all you need is a 28mm figure of Svengoolie & you're set!

Jeff is right:
