Yet more 15mm Wild west. Yes it seems to be taking a while BUT I promise I am getting it done! While just 2 carts today little and often is my approach.
First up is a very old Stage-coach. If my memory serves bought this about 35 years ago from "Minifigs" . I Grant you I may have that wrong as it is only a vague memory.
While it is of very limited use for the US Army for me it was important to get it re-based and painted. It is 15mm and can be used as a "liability". Liabilities in "Western! By "Peter Pig" are well just that. Target pieces the other team can pick on. While you do not need "Liabilities" they do a a certain wild west flavour as not everyone was a combatant.
Also as a Liability I have a US Army Wagon. While not quite as long as a settlers wagon it will still no doubt add something to the game being worth Victory points to whomever controls it at the end of the game.
Settlers wagons did tend to be longer than the one shown and were used by the army mostly in the civil war. A lot were then sold off and "settlers" used tem to haul their life across the plain along various trails until they reached some good farm land.
This one (with a change of drivers (And I have some) could also be used as a "Chuck Wagon" for cowboys on a cattle drive.
General Custer preferred pack mules on campaign to wagons so in the dim distant future you may see some.. First however I need to get some fighting troops done.
And that (I hope) will be the next phase for me.
Just give me a few days and a helpful postman. The post I can do nothing about so either they arrive of they don't. They have been ordered!
All the Best Clint
