Marcus has also wanted to have an Army Pig for quite a while. I was intimidated by the helmet, but oncm e I discovered that couldn’t be bought here in New Zealand anyway, I set myself the challenge to make one. Ideas have been turning in my brain ever since, but he has now been made and finished.

He’s a middle sized pig, made by reducing the big pig pattern to 75% on the printer. He does have ears tucked up inside his helmet, so he can lose his helmet and still be an intact pig 🙂 I think the helmet will get loose with time and use, but I can always make another one.
