The English baggage is defended!











I've finished some figures to defend the baggage encampment for the Verneuil game.

These are a hot-potch of leftovers; Foundry, Perry and Citadel figures, all of which have been dipped for expediency of time and a few longbowmen from Oliver's collection (which are nicely handpainted). Just about enough figures for the game I hope.

The encampment will also surround tents, some non-combatants and the like.

You've done a grand job with the painting. The setup looks cool!

Jean-Baptiste,
The wagons are 'Kingmaker' Hussite ones, which I've assembled without the extra protective sides. The one with the solid side and gun 'window' has been made up without the rear side to make it more accessible; I intend to use some form of swivel gun in it oneday. They're all dipped and matt varnished - hope this helps.
Simon.

These are fantastic, they will add a lot to the display and illustrate an important aspect of the battle - and an inspiration, one day I will do the same with some Landsknechts!

Oh, and, battle of the herrings, that would be another excellent display game !

Best of luck for the show

Stuart

the large open-sided wagon was purchased from on the web, a guy in rance casts a few things himself, which are very good (inc WW2 sandbags & ruined Normandy house). But I've lost the link, so will advise if I can find it again, as I'd probably get another wagon too - apologies.

Found the site! http://www.elladan.de/Index.htm

Scroll down and you'll see the wagon - don't know if any castings are still available. Best of luck.
