Warbases Wednesday #12 - 28mm Hand powered items

This weeks post is a small one as I have had a rather busy weekend working on the stand at Triples in Sheffield. It was nice to see many familiar faces and some new ones.

Among the many items that are available are a couple of really nice spare change priced items to enhance the look of the gaming table.

First up is the Hand Cart:



I have painted this one up to represent a traders hand cart from the Victorian / Edwardian period but the design of this type of cart goes back way into history and can be used from medieval times right up to the end of the 1940's in reality. The cost of this is only £1.50 and takes 10 minutes to construct at the most.

This is also easily adapted a couple of cut down matches can be added all round to make the rails at the front and rear higher, or a deft slice with a sharp scalpel the side rails can be removed for a smaller hand cart used by many street traders.

Next is a real staple and is the Wheeled Barrow, again a design that is simple and useful for a whole range of periods and different jobs.




Another simple to build and paint piece of equipment and at only £1.00 will not break the bank at all.

Over the next few weeks I will be going through more of these ranges in more detail as I assemble and paint most of the Carts and Wagons for a new display. I also have some new miniatures that have been sent away to have a production mould made at the moment so I will be painting the master models for more additions to the displays.

That is all for this weeks edition thank you for stopping by.

  16. Cool I might pick up some of these for Across The Dead Earth. Might be able to make up a trader caravan. Might get some zombies to use as workhorse for it!

  17. Terrific little accessories. That first model likes like it would be right home in a medieval village.
    I like how Simon thinks. The zombie/workhorses would be awesome, presumably with a scary girl with katana alongside to keep them pulling together. :)
