40mm: Sorting out my wagons...
I had a quick check of the wagons I use for 40mm gaming; these have to be generic enough to use in 17C and 18C; I have 1 water barrel cart, 2 four wheel wagons and 2 two wheel wagons.
The four wheel wagons had their loads removed and have been re-painted as needed with some new removable barrel loads made for them. The two wheel wagons however I was not satisfied with, so I scrapped them and kept the useable bits; then made some new cart bodies from 2mm cardboard
A quick paint up - shown below with their (removable) loads ....
A blog documenting the encounters between the armies of the imaginary nations of the Kingdom of Wittenberg and its neighbours (including the Kingdom of Monrovia and their allies). My inspiration being drawn from 'Charge or How to Play Wargames' by Young & Lawford and 'The Wargame' by Charles Grant.
I have a number of other period interests for wargaming (from ancients to WW2), these have their own blogs, see below.
