Also a set of locals heading to town with their wares. These are an old Connoisseur Miniatures set, the detail was very soft, but actually from table distance they do the job, and could just about be added to a nativity set!
I think the whole concept of game vignettes are the cat's pajamas. At the very least they add personality to the tabletop, and with a further touch of imagination, as Dave shows here, they can be of central importance to the game itself. Wonderful.
Even though the castings may be showing their age, the Connoisseur civilians are lovely and, as you say, probably could be used to depict people going to market for the past 2000 years.
And of course, I can't help but give the tumbs up to Burlieigh and his Otterhound as the breed looks very similar to one of our lovable mutts, Oscar.
Great work Mr.D!
