Horses, carts and wheels

December 5, 2011 10:59 PM - Posted by Robartes - Category: General

So I’ve been steadily working on some horse and musket armies, notably Great Northern War Swedes and Russians and Napoleonic Bavarians. The past few days, I’ve turned my attention to what might be termed their support infrastructure:

That’s only just the start. So far, there’s a Hovels Dutch wagon with two possible loads (I’ll make a third out of coffee stirrers), a Foundry cart and powder cart and two Old Glory wurstwagen. The latter have either Foundry crew (for the one without horses) or Old Glory crew with Foundry Bavarian heads transplanted (ouch). Still to come are another cart and powder cart, some caissons (they’ll be French crewed) and limbers and horse teams. Obviously, some of these will be more suitable for the Napoleonic than the GNW collection, but there will be a fair bit of overlap.

These bases can be used as baggage train, to generally doll up the battlefield or to provide some ‘meat’ behind a deployed artillery battery.
