The bombard being transported by wagon; my interpretation of the Swiss chronicle picture.
As explained in the WIP blog entry last month, the wagon and oxen are Perry carrying a Foundry bombard. The wooden cover has been made from a Kingmaker Hussite wagon side, thats been cut to size and folded to fit. I added a chain between the yokes of the oxen. I decided to paint the wagon using Army Painter dip - however I'm not happy with the final colouring and so won't use this approach next time. The construction required a good amount of preparation and and pre-planning, so that the basework could all be done before the wagon was finally glued in place. I pinned a wheel on each axle to the base, as the surface area for creating a strong bond is so small and the wagon would become too fragile.
I waited for the release of the Perry labourers from the WR range to add the man carrying the sack, followed by his dog (a Vendel mastiff). A pack of normal size dogs in 28mm would be so useful....my plea to all sculptors!
More stuff using some of those labourers very soon....
