I got mail from a reader who sent me pictures of a baggage train for a game called Impetus. They worked well as inspirational material and gave me some thoughs about how to move on with my project.
I decided to make a 6" x 8" cardboard base on which I will mount the carts and tents. The minis will not be glued on the base as I want to be able to move them. The base size will match the rules for a 2000 point army´s baggage train.
So far I´ve completed three minis and started working on a cart.
A tent (in base color), three civilians and a cart (in base color).
An elf lady with a pet bird.
An elf woman carrying some groceries.
A warmachine engineer with a spare part to a bolt thrower.
Two tents, the completed minis and a cart on a 6" x 8" cardboard base.
I am going to add an another cart (perhaps a water cart), seven civilians and a horse/mule or two. I might switch to present cart for another as I feel that the one I have now is a bit largeish compared to the elf minis. And the base itself will eventually get painted and flocked.
And to end this posting hera are some inspirational pictures sent by a reader. Really hoping to get my baggage train to this level.
