I thinking of putting together a baggage train for my Warhammer Dwarves. Can you recommend a company that has Donkeys or Maybe Oxen?

Thanks, Xin

Pit ponies as used in mines. A lot of models would suit

Wild Boar – 28mm, look vicious

Pathfinder Battles Dire Boar – 50mm base

Stonehaven Halfling Boar Mount – 28mm, looks more like a work animal than a fighter

The Games Workshop plastic Dwarf miners set comes with some ponies pulling a cart but I don't know if it's still in production .

Piglets, perhaps? :)

Or Pygmy (15mm) musk oxen? Or yaks?

Oh!! Use elves!

I took the box, thought outside of the box, then crushed the box!

There are tubs of plastic animals, available at Wal-Mart, and the like. I bought one last Fall, which contained perfectly sized donkeys, gorillas, lions, panthers, alligators, etc. They are perfectly sized for 25-30mm human figures.

They are easy to paint: either paint directly on the plastic, and seal with Pledge Floor Polish or Urethane; or, apply Gesso, or the primer of your choice. The entire tub of animals will cost less than $10 USD, and you will get more than a dozen figures you can use in your games. I believe I got four donkeys in my single tub! Cheers!
