Title: Indian Mutiny elephants and carts!
Post by: Leon on 14 March 2018, 12:01:31 AM
Even though we've been busy with the Korean War, there's still some time for some more Indian Mutiny sculpts!  This month we've got a few artillery crews plus the elephant limber team and a handy bullock cart.  There's a few more sculpts to come next month and then we should be complete!

Indeed, I am asking myself why that cart has no wheels. The puzzlefulness is terrific.

Pendraken already have many wheels, why sculpt more!

Great Elephants, any chance of him being modified down to the ancients range?

Getting seriously tempted by this period. Anyone recommend some good entry point books?

The iconic Indian cart has wheels that a troll could use as a shield. No dainty little spokes or anything like that.

He came from the Carthage range originally, what kind of modification were you thinking?

Have you got some images for that, the ones we had showed a more regular style wheel?

Indian ears, howdahs, mahuts, armour for later armies

I thought I recognised something that I'd 'played with' already. :-\

(I certainly didn't make the original model.....The Dremel would have been used, though !)

That's what she said.

Sorry, I've resisted as long as I could.

Hi

Any thoughts on adding the Bullocks alone to the Animals section?

Cheers

We probably will do, yes.  Phil's working on some more animals at the moment and we also need to pull some from other ranges, such as the Sudan camels, Boer oxen and Vietminh buffalo.

Hmmm, I googled it this morning, and I could find only spoked wheels. Pity, really, since the image I had in mind was very picturesque, not to say impractical. Maybe I had a memory of a cart I saw in India once?
