My first wagon;


and my 2nd and newer one - the 'Luxury' model.


I'm wanting to build the third now, because it should happen soon, but wagon wheels are sooo hard to find (and I'm out of casting material). I'm probably going to go with Lego ones though. Does anyone have any suggetsions?

Those wagons are massive! Poor, poor horses Razz

I like 'em, the design on the first one especially.
As for wheels to the third wagon, have you considered building your own out of plasticard and/or wood? If it's just for the one wagon, it might be worth it.

Excellent wagons! I do pity the poor horses trying to pull them if they were real. Does the luxury model come with a sliding roof? They look very playable, though I like the luxury caravan look better.

Wheels have you tried bitz sites? Otherwise I think Lego wheels are a pretty good alternative.

Looking forward to the newest wagon.

This and the following page seems to be a good source for wheels.

Both wagons are VERY COOL! The first has the look & feel of a Two-Decker Bus, while the second is more a Gypsy Travel-all.EXCELLENT WORK! thumbsup

I would really consider another pair of horses to every wagon. It will help them to move the dam*ed thing up hill & look pretty good IMHO Smile

In any case, looks like a very funny thing for a game!

Good stuff! You seem to be a really proficient modeller. I wish I had skills like yours. Good luck with the next wagon, I'm sure it will look just as good as the first two. Are there any pics of the warband members?

That's great! However, I'd add more horses. Seriously, that thing wouldn't budge for two of them. Smile Loving the look of those, the wheels look awesome.

I honestly didn't know you could just add horses in the rules or I would have. Last game was vs Nuln Gunnery School and they shot both horses from one wagon and one from the other so more horses would certainly have helped alot!

I don't know if rules permit that but...since you made very BIG wagons (maybe a little outscaled)...they would gain a touch of realism with a couple more horses each. Nevertheless...good job. Hope to see third soon.

I've just built a caravan for my Marienburg Mercenaries, but it's much smaller than these (About 2.5x3.0x5.0 inches, and I used bottuns for the wheels [I'll put up a pic later so you can see them, they work really well])

And yeh, you can add horses in the usual way, just gotta buy them after the games finished.

Awesome caravans. I particularly like the double decker. Lots of inspiration here, I'm stuck with my one ( not much done truth be told ) particularly on how to attach the animals and how to fill it with stuff and still get minis on it.

Great insperation for wagons.
Though a little "large" as others say I don't mind at all and think they look fine with those warhorses pulling them.
