Perry Miniatures - Russian Transport
The last of the purchases from WMMS show in March are off the paint table, which is great timing considering Salute in a fortnight.
I was looking for some supply elements for both sides, whilst opting for Chinese Coolies for the Japanese I figured the Russians would be more suited to wheeled transport and spotted this cossack wagon from Perry Miniatures taken from their Napoleonic range, I doubt your average Russian peasant is unlikely to have changed over a couple of hundred years.
I omitted a number of the rein pieces as they were a little on the fiddly side and I doubted how much game play they would stand up to and had to file out a greater ledge for the driver to sit on, but I am happy with the results.
Last up Redoubts Rickshaw.
No real thoughts about how this is going to fit in , but I had a few pounds left in my pocket so why not... I guess it could be a diplomat or person of note, so is likely to work it's way into a couple of the scenarios.
