Agreed, they look like they're going paint up a treat. And a nice effort on the casualty figures.

Mick
The wagons and casualty markers all look top-rate!
Have you seen that First Corps are switching medieval wagon production to resin for the main wagon bodies (different styles)...maybe worth looking at too?
Look forward to following this, as I want to do these 1429 battles too.
Simon.

Dear Simon,

I have three metal Perry wagons as a supply train.  I also have a Warbases laser cut cart.  

I have three Hussite wagons that I made with wooden lollipop sticks about 10 years ago.  
These are big enough for four soldiers on 25mm slottabases and therefore look oversized next to the Perry wagons.

The new plasticard wagons were fun to make.  
They have the right balance between matching the aesthetic of the Perry wagons and being playable with troops.
I started painting them  yesterday evening and am pleased with the results so far.  I may make some more.

I still have not decided how to base them. – I like the idea of a scenic semi circle base of a defended wagon lager.

The casualties will get some more detail painting and some will have heraldry to match knights from Agincourt.

Mick

Thanks DonVoss
Your plasticard wagons convinced me that I could do them too

It looks really great.

I use the same trays for my minis for my Hail Ceasar viking project. I have added some "fillers" to the bases to thicken the ranks a bit. That might be an idea for you? At least for the french to give them a bit more of a horde feel. I love the idea of casualties to mark an area of difficult ground. I am going to steal that idea.

Dear DR Zombie,
I use the same trays for fantasy, Zulu war, ancients etc so fixed troops on the movement trays would not work for me.
I can see how it works well in your situation.

The wagons look great, and I really like the basing of the crew to facilitate casualty removal - great planning.  :)

Here are six scratchbuilt wagons with crews from Perry plastic Agincourt French Army Set almost ready to refight the Battle of the Herrings.



I have not decided how to base the wagons and would appreciate suggestions.

MDF rectangles with chamfered edges and rounded corners? (Will make the interlocking scene above hard to recreate, but make them a lot more durable.)

I want to use them for Lion Rampant but have not decided how to make them into units.

I could treat them as units of foot sergeants or crossbowmen in a defended position (behind an obstacle).
This would imply units of 12 figures.

I think visually, for the Battle of the Herrings, (and Hussite Wars) bases with 2 wagons placed in a curve with stakes, pavises and other baracades would look good.  I would not glue the wagons to the bases (possibly just with magnets) so that they can be rebased.

I could also use them as a baggage train for  Murten.

Mick - I don't know if you have Dragon Rampant?  Very similar to the historical version but units don't have to be 12 figures - it might work for the wagons
