The wheels arrived from Irregular Miniatures:

8x 22mm, 4x 19mm, 8x 13mm
There are some burrs, but nothing too wild. I think for 4,4+postage its very well worth its price.
Im awaiting the carrige animals.

Those wheels look really nice! I have some in a similar style by Trent Miniatures, and the castings are lovely.

Any idea where I could find some metal cast wheels that are "solid" timber wheels of similar sizes? Everywhere seems to have spoked, and I can't find solid ones anywhere.

I'm sure I got my solid wheels from Irregular.
Nice bloke to deal with, just contact him.

Just a thought about solid wheels. You could use buttons.
Strips of paper glued on, left to dry, then trimmed. Paint
up as wood.
OR
Thin layer of Miliput (or similar) smeared over the button,
then (before it dries) 'draw' on the wood detail with a
sharp pencil. When dry any 'bolts' holding it together
can be created with 3d effect paint.

I didn't know Irregular did solid wheels - thank you! :)

I can make my own with Plasticard, but as my time is more limited these days, and the models I want the wheels for are themselves metal, I think it would be more robust if the wheels were cast metal too.

I could find only 1 Reaper dire boar, maybe it was the last one in Europe... So the dwarven chariots are on hold (I making a small, with only 1 boar).
But I made great progress with the goblin ones:

They are not the best, but certanly good enough for me and my kids.

They look great, well done! :)

I do wish that the wolves from the goblin wolf rider set were available separately to purchase; they are even on separate sprues, so I would have thought it was possible.

Thanks all of You!
Yeah separate wolves were great... But now my son will have a giant goblin force on/behind wolves, and he is happy about it.  :)

As I could order only one dire boar from Reaper, I could only make one small dwarven chariot:

Thats for now. As long as I cant get more boars, project is on hold...

not sure about the comparative size, but I believe there is a wizkids dire boar as well which might work.
