I mentioned in my last post that I had bought some Oxen Teams from 1st Corp. These turned out very nice but were tricky to paint as they were painted separately and then based. I then sculpted the yokes out of some hobby wood and then made and painted the neck parts out of paper clips. These were then half painted and attached to the necks and yokes and then the top parts were then painted and all were varnished. The Oxen have only one pose but you don't really notice it. The Team Handlers are a little small compared to my other figures but painted up nicely.
I had ordered an extra Oxen Team so bought a Boer Wagon. I had three different unsuccessful attempts to do the cover, and ended up using a serviette from a Take-away as it was nice and thick and also lacked any pattern impressed in it. Unfortunately I managed to distort the first hoop but did not notice until too late. Its also too tall to fit in my storage box with the other wagons so has to lay on its side.
When I ordered the Boer Wagon I also ordered the Civl War Ambulance. Little did I realise that it was Huge and can't see how you would lift a casualty into it. I modified it to look like the Command Wagon from the Film Zulu Dawn. I have a figure in mind to be glued inside as Pulleine. I also found a use for the single based Infantry figure I mentioned in an earlier post.
I hope this is Legal? I took some scene shots of the Wagon from The Film "Zulu Dawn" my version is quite a bit different but I hope it gives the impression of a Command wagon, if such a thing existed.
