This particular pig is sort of a company mascot, having starred in both of the We Be Goblins free adventures we've released. When we did the We Be Goblins builder series set Squealy Nord was the most requested figure. He's something of a special case. There won't be farm animals in the next two sets.
Unless you count horses.
Or equipment-laden mules.
Thanks! I just wanted to put out my preference is all. If they sell well then great. I just never had a need for a pig or sheep ever! Now a war pig with armor and fiendish tusks then YES PLEASE! Also my players keep making fun of me about having paid this much money and having gotten 5 sheep. I think I will need to hide the pig when it comes... =)
And don't get me wrong the flying hawks and birds from RoW where great and finding use. Druids turn into birds and I can easily use them for other flying monsters. I guess in my next undead campaign I can have "zombie sheep & pigs" show up. ;)
No offense, but I disagree. For one thing, a lot of these animals see use as familiars, so for that reason alone there's a place for them, even in combat. But if nothing else, their sales should be an indication of their popularity, and from what I have seen, there's substantial demand out there for the little critters. You're totally entitled to your preferences, though! And nothing that Erik (or anyone making selection calls) might do is going to please everybody. (Except for a Froghemoth, Erik. Everybody wants a froghemoth. Even my mom would want a froghemoth, if she knew what a froghemoth is.)
No offense taken. In regards to the Froghemoth OMG yes! I have had several times where a Froghemoth would have been great.
