New pack-mules for the baggage train

After a rummage in charity shop I found a bag of toy animals, spotting some decent looking horses for possible uses with my 40mm figs, I bought it for the princely sum of £1.50. After sorting through the bag I had 4 horses and a donkey for my 40mm, plus 2 mules just right for my 25/28mm collection.

Mules below with spare Front Rank figure ...

Out came the green stuff and an oddment from my spares, to create the mules with loads ..

Finally the mules all painted up ...


  1. A very successful use of a charity buying! Of course you had to do a lot of (great) work with the greenstuff.

  2. Good job!
    Looks like they'll fit in well with your other minis.

  3. Lovely work sir and what a bargin. I have never used green stuff but you have inspired me to give it a go this year...

  4. A nice conversion, and a great addition to the army's "tail."

  5. nice finds for the baggage train indeed!
