I've been slowly working my way through plastic animals from various sources.
28mm Mule Train
I bought the 1/48 Pegasus Gold Miners set, the mules in the set are suitable for 28mm, whereas the figures are about 38mm in height and I'll make use of those later. I decided to make up some sabot bases for the mules so their handlers could be swapped out. I cut some card board bases out and used some thin clear plastic for the underside
varying handlers for periods or sides means I don't have to make a mule/pony train for each
shown here finished with some 18th civilian handlers
or military handlers...
Pegasus also do a 1/48 farm animal set which may be useful.
40mm Calves and Foal
The animals from the plastic tubes (see previous post) were rather variable in scale; so the larger ones have been used to represent younger 40mm animals
Two were just about the right size for calves
and one for a foal
