How to differentiate war pigs?

Recommended Posts

I would either use basing, or colour ( probably of the riders).  (Well I actually use loki's suggestion, but it's probably not that helpful when you have 2 war pigs). My war pig is an old metal one, but I've based it to be crashing through a fence. Running one through a pile of moonshine bottles is another suggestion. Something that shows them out of control fits them.

You could always paint them differently. Different skintone on the riders, different patterns and pigmentation on the pigs.

Different colour hats on the riders. I did a post on this ages ago about differentiating my gremlins.

I have Roger Red Hat, Billy Blue Hat, Jennifer Yellow Hat* etc.

It's also nice and easy for your opponent - if you say 'Roger Red Hat Pig' they'll have no doubt as to who that is! :D

Yeah, this topic goes to a whole new level when you're talking about how to differentiate all your Bayous in a Som'er Crew...

Same for Ramos' little spiders, tho. Friend of mine paints numbers on the spiders (they're constructs, so they can have serial numbers, of course!), and has the corresponding number on each stat card. Could just number the Bayous' bases and do the same, or give each one a name?

It's pretty easy - 4 bayous from Somer, one alt Bayou and four metal one.

9 is enough for me.

Haven't got me the metal ones, but that's not a bad idea. Was also thinking to use slightly modified Bushwhackers - Gadzooks can't even give theirs away, so it's cheap to get alt sculpts that way.
