Things From The Basement ~ Hay and War Wagons
Joerg is always looking for ways to provide or improve what he offers for purchase so when he asked me if I had any suggestions my eyes immediately fell to their Hay Cart kit. I felt it was a nice piece to dress up the table but I noticed it wouldn't fit any of my 25mm fender washer based figures as it was too narrow to be used as a war wagon or as a perch for a defender to get elevation on their enemy. So we exchanged emails and Joerge sent me this picture of a modified wagon a few weeks later.
We both agreed that it was quite long (I thought about alternate historical fight where war wagon had dual rear tires...) so I decided that a 3-figure wagon would work best for me and I purchased 6 of them for a modest price. So I put the kits together with just a few minor uses of an X-acto knife and got them base painted for a MHWA Game Day (I plan on revisiting and finishing them as war wagons complete with shields mounted on the sides). Note I cut off the falling tongue, the part the animals are attached to, as I didn't want it sticking out needlessly or taking up space on the Table. If I put horses in front of the wagon you can't really tell it isn't there anyway.
I think they turned out great and they were a nice feature on my Fantasy table at Game Day. Thanks to Joerg for taking the time to listen to a customer, and be sure to ask for some of Gabriel's War Wagons!
