Medieval sledges for use with 40mm figures

Today I made these wagons in the garden whilst listening to the Test Match.



Here they are finally finished.

  1. Your sledges look great! I see them being employed in 1812 Russia.

    1. So handy and coffee stirrers for skis for 40mm and 54mm figures.

  3. Sounds like the perfect restful afternoon!
    The sledges are very nice - the wagon body looks like it's resin, or is it plastic?

    1. Wagon bodies are resin but don’t know the make as they were got second hand.

  4. Great looking sledges - excellent runners. These would do right up to the German Army/ Winter War of WW2

    1. Thanks, these skewers have waited patiently for years to be used, I make it a habit to retain all such sticks after eating. Wash, dry and store for a modelling rainy day. Use them as plant labels too.
