I am liking what you are doing with all these.  Smiley
I'm looking forward to having a contingent of herders - a few light cavalry, some sling staves and a hunter with his beasts! Hopefully they'll all be ready in time for Salute (end of April).

I will be heading for a few layers of clothing on the hunter. He has pants, vest and waistcoat already. Likely extend the waistcoat to a jacket and have some kind of animal skin shawl over the shoulders. Will help fill some undercut behind the head. Low slung backpack and a few hiking bits of kit. Was also thinking of furthering the pointing pose by having him mouth open shouting.

The second skitterer looks good. The second scavenger looks like he's a lot bigger than the original even tho the fig is a conversion... go figure - must be the way the neck is angled / stretched. Other than that good tho

The Hunter is coming on but I really don't like his weapon at all. It doesn't look practical as a hunting tool, a farming implement or a fighting weapon

hmmm sorry but the hook doesn't work well for me either... its not a sythe as its the wrong angle its too big to be used for hooking say the back legs of a creature out of the way like a shepherds crook, and as a weapon blade it looks wrong too.

sorry klute i thought you meant something much smaller on the end of the pole.

Definitely agree on the hook being too large. I want a cross between a sheperds crook and something like elephant handlers use. A simple staff would do for herding I suppose but something a touch more elaborate Im fancying.
I dont want a weapon that could be used for herding though. Needs to be a tool that could put a bit hurt on if needed.  Google time again  Grin

Update time.
This little fellow is nearing completion now. Head details and maybe a blanket roll on the backpack. Front pockets on the coat too with maybe some gubbins poking out. Gone for a spear as he is now officially a hunter not a beast master, seems more appropriate. The 2 critters are reposed and finished too but not taken a pic yet. Im more than happy with the finish and difference to the originals.

Nice

Weapon works much better, tho the head looks like flint and the bit where it meets the shaft looks like metal. Unless the head is just roughly beaten metal?

Anyway, looks miles better than the hook did imo

Yeah was going for beaten metal. You think it might be too confusing, should I reshape the joint and make it flint ??

nooo all the furbarnii seem to have metal weapons - i think it works - just make sure whoever paints the show model realises as that will set the "trend"

I agree. Just needed to know what it was meant to be. Roughly beaten metal works for me and I'll make sure he's painted accordingly Smiley

Not to worry. After some top secret correspondance from the men upstairs the spear has been changed to a shorter more "traditional" looking version.  Grin

While I agree the spear length I already have is fine as is I agree more with it being shorter. This figure was fully intented to be practically unarmed, relying totally on his beasts for doing the hunting etc. He does need some form of weapon though and a short spear fits nicely.
Think of it as a cattle prod ;-)
