A small group of my colleagues from grad school decided to create assets for a hypothetical zombie RPG set in the Medieval era called “Run Squire Run”. I had an amusing experience creating the Tamworth Pig, and learned a little about the historically accurate lineage of pigs. Originally, I created what i considered a typical pink porker. What I discovered, is that in the Medieval times the pigs were more commonly of the ‘tamworth’ descent, with amber red fur, and slightly different silhouette. It was a simple adjustment to make, and I’ve shown the variation between the two below.
