With Ulix out on the field, I needed more Piglets. There’s only three poses available in plastic (four if you include the one with the Hog Whisperer). The metals are a different enough visual style that I’m not interested in mixing them. So it was time to get creative.
First up, Belted. Based loosely on a real breed of pigs, he stands out pretty well while still obviously being a piglet.
Bessie is based more on cows, but still recognizable. The wash comes off looking dirty along the top, however. Perhaps a brown would have been a better choice.
The Ulix story and story encounter in Crossroads features a Golden Piglet. It’s also a super easy paint scheme. Done!
