Ready to Roll

The latest addition to my convoy is now table ready.


The carts are surplus Irregular Miniatures that Rob passed to  me a couple of years ago. I replaced the wheels with Prince August ones for a more 18thC look and used PA draft horses.

I had thought of having the drivers walk along side but had never really noticed the scale difference, especially for the larger HE and new 7YW figures. The sight of a driver pointing across a draft horse's back made it look more like a draft pony. So I took late 19thC seated drivers from Zinnbrigade and Irregular, gave them new heads and painted them in waistcoats.

The loads are 1/35 sandbags and are removable as are the drivers.

Pack mules are next and anything else will just give me more options to choose from.

  4. Think of them as sporty coupes, as opposed to stodgy sedans! They look good.

    1. If one is going to stray beyond pitched battles, one needs transport and livestock!

    2. Agreed.

      I`ve had my eye on these Irregular Miniatures wagons and carts for a while now, but the photos from the site don`t give much away. Seeing yours has now definitely put them on my wish list.
