David,

I do have Dragon Rampant. I will have a read through and see if that helps.

There is also a proposed War Wagon unit on the Lion Rampant Forum but as far as I can tell, nobody has tried it.

I revisited the casualties that I made in May and added some heraldry.

Hi Mick,

A bit of threadomancy as I remembered your scratch built wagons. What dimensions did you use for the main body of the wagons? LxWxH would be much appreciated!

Cheers

Dear Mark,

I will measure them tonight.
The dimensions are similar to the Perry Wagons but a bit wider to fit a 20mm base.
Regards

Mick

The Wagon side panels are rectangles of about 1mm thick plasticard, 20mm x 67mm.
The back and front are trapeziums, 30mm wide at the top and 20mm wide at the bottom and 20mm high.

The four poles on the first version were wooden skewers but I replaced them with 2mm diameter round plastic rod x 76mm

The front box is made from Renedra bases out of a Perry figure set. The front is 20mm wide x 8mm high.
The top of the box is the drivers seat and is 22mm wide x 7mm. The sides are about 6mm wide x 8mm high.

The wheels are from Front Rank. I think they are EQ20 here

The axles are 1.6mm Brass Rod (I think)

The pole to attach the horses was made from 3mm square section plastic rod.

Mick, thanks very much - you are a gentleman and a scholar.

Mine will be a bit bigger when I get round to them to accommodate 2p bases, but I will mirror the proportions as much as I can as yours look great.

I guess painting was a generic wood colour and a wash?

Cheers

Mark

Paint was probably Vallejo Leather Brown or Chocolate Brown with a dark brown wash (e.g. Citadel Agrax Earthshade).
