Perry ox drawn wagon, nearly complete.

I managed to get the ox cart close to completion during the Paint & Chat session last night. It still needs the base doing, but I shall do that when the second wagon is completed. The set is the Perry Miniatures metal range code number WR24, for those who are interested.








Here is the drover and cart minus its load. I didn't glue the load on as it gives me more options.



Here with the load slipped into place, the kit does come with the wife holding a baby and the young boy, both in sitting positions and look pretty good sat on top of the wagon load.




Next up is kit number WR27, which is a horse drawn covered wagon. It looks reasonably straightforward, but once again does not come with any instructions for the build. I shall have to check the Perry site for a completed wagon, especially for the traces for the horse tack. I haven't got a clue where they go.


Finally, for my Wars of the Roses project, are two blister packs of period figures. These are the Market Day figures. 


Street Entertainers, this group should make an interesting vignette.



Once that little lot are painted up, the WotR project is finally complete. I shall then move back to finish off the War of the Three Kingdoms (ECW) figures I have.

  1. That wagon turned well! I agree with keeping it flexible by not making the load permanent. The next one looks challenging too. Good luck!

    1. Thank you Urs, I too like to add unusual scenes to the table, the carts and the street entertainers a case in point.
