Salutations, gentlefolk !

Noted that a couple of Ancient Brit & Celtic army lists include 'druids' as 'horde', etc. Wondering who produces those figures in 15mm these days ?

Also curious if anyone makes goats in 15mm ? Might be interested in acquiring a flock, mounting them on pennies, giving one to any annoying fellow gamer, saying "You're trying to get my goat, and there, you've got it."

I'd be surprised if druids weren't made by *most* of the producers of Ancient Britons :-) ! Here's one example: link (they also make goats…)

Forged in Battle (War and Empire figures) have codes for both Druids and Goats/Sheep (2 poses of each) to support their 15mm Celtic/Brit ranges

Magister Militum's pack includes Druids, with acolytes and screaming women.

I use Goats to mark units which are in Shaken morale status: a goat will likely not butt you in the front, but if you turn your side, or back, to them, they are more likely to butt you! In the rules that I use, Shaken units can only attack the enemy in the flank, or rear, but not the front.

I prefer goats to markers (tent cards, pipe cleaners, etc.), all day long.

I use Chickens to mark Routing morale status on units, as well. Same effect: avoids tent cards, or red pipe cleaners, on the tabletop. Cheers!

And here based on my reading I always thought it was Druids and sheep…
