Goosey Goosey Gander

Yet another set from the lead pile and destined for the 1329 dio
They are made by Toma Miniatures  under the titel,  "Catch my geese"
As far as I can make out, a lot of Pictures from the Medieval period geese Show the Grey legged Version but I found a couple showing them with the classic pinky orange legs, one source being by Hugh of Fouilloy (aka:Hugo de Folieto  ) from the Bibliothèque Municipale de Troyes from the last quarter of the 12th century.
This site,  Medieval Bestiary, has a slide Show with several Pictures of "Medieval" Geese
Getting the geese to stay up on thier Little legs was a pain but it was finally achieved with the help of UHU second glue


  1. Another great and unsual this!

  2. What a delightful set, the movement is fabulous - the paintings is pretty good too. ;)

  3. Excellent painted figures and all together they make a very lovely scene!
    Keep them coming Paul! You're doing great!


  4. Beautiful Scene. A real pleasure to view. Cool Painting! BB

  5. Such lovely figures. How I wish they were available in 28mm, though I see that Toma make some ACW figures in 28mm.
    I love the one bod who appears to be pointing and laughing, rather than helping. Having tried to chase geese myself, I would rather laugh than catch. :)
