Wasn't sure of picture limits so i've spread it over 2 posts

Archers including pack pigs


Flagellants


Free company unit


Pig Knights


Warmachines


and finally the centre piece
The Big Pig


I'm currently in the process of a bit of a redux and expansion. Here is the first bit; a new shiny mounted warrior priest

That is pure 100% WIN slathered in awesome sauce! 

I love everything save the Big Pig (sorry).  Great job!!!

My friend once bought some Hobgoblins and they showed up mounted on plastic pigs.  I took one as a mascot and had it running around the battlefield out in front of my knights

Cheers guys, I have to say your reactions are kinda typical;
People look, seem a bit confused, look at me, look back at the models, smile and say "that's awesome..." or something aling those lines!

The pigs are all toy pigs from various places, mostly the Early Learning Centre.

Swan-of-War; I'm not 100% happy with the big pig either. I put it together in one night over a few beers the night before the GT last year! I'm currently in the redesign process working it up using a CAD program. When its all designed i'm going to get the parts cut from plastic using a laser cutter and put it together.
The new design is a far better shape, more dynamic and biological looking I promise!

Bonjour Hello... Yep, I'm a froggy guy from freakie France... So, excuse me if my english is the worst you've ever seen !

I just can say "Wahow" (or english word for that), it's the funniest army for WFB I've seen. A french make a Rabbit Marines army for 40k, but this one is such better ! I think english paint and modelism level is better than french one... It's the first time I come on this forum, and I'm impress by what little guys in your country. The army of Pigmar is not the best painted force ever, but juste the idea and release is fantastic.

Great job !

Nice Idea! Engineer with pigginbombs is an absolute favorite. Came a bit as a supprise after the stern looking warrior priest.

Maybe a pig-in-bomb as a morter?

This is the Mechanical Pig from Eureka Mini's Pig Tickler range (Pax Limpopo).
Not sure if he's much inspiration for a Steam Pig, but he'd be funny for an Engineer on Robot Horse

I think those pig knights would actually be a little scary to be charged by...

I really love the idea, love the execution,

apart from the big pig.
It is the worst model that you displayed, which is a shame as the centre piece. The body looks to "box like"

I'm really glad you are redoing it, and can't wait to see the new version, with the skills you have displayed on the other pieces, it should be fantastic!
I don't care about the rules.

I think the Big Pig is out of place because of its high-tech look and feel with the legs you used. It looks more 40k-ish than FB.

Everything else is awesome! My favorite is the piggin bomb! Is he being launched with a slingshot?
