Holiday Cheers and a Perry WotR Wine Cart

Feeling guilty when ordering just a few plastic WotR spare horses, I added the Water/Wine Cart set to the order. A couple of spare plastic figures to create a vignette - possibly a scene prior to, or after, a battle.
The wooden cup is made from Green Stuff.
Having thrown away the can of dried up Minwax stain, I used some old (almost 10 years old) Pledge Floor Wax mixed with some sepia ink for the wash. It worked okay, but I would definitely get another can of Minwax for larger projects.
I may add something to the rear of the base - maybe a dog or some weapons and/or shields.
Not sure what this piece would be used for in a game; maybe something to capture for victory points.
The pavise is painted up to represent the ragged staff of Warwick.
The barrel is cast from resin.
These are likely the last figures to be painted for 2017. No idea what the next project(s) could be, but don't plan on adding anymore Wars of the Roses stuff as there are enough for the games they're to be used in.

  2. Lovely work, Dean. I'm sure the troops will be very happy to see this roll up, no matter whether it's before or after a set-to!

    1. Lol! Thanks, Aaron. Truly, truly...I was watching a Medieval History video - something about folks drank more beer and wine than water for health-safety reasons. Best regards, Dean

  3. What a lovely way to finish the year off and I am glad that I am not the only one that feels guilty about not buying enough.

    1. Thanks, Michael. Yes, I had envisioned the Perrys (or staff) thinking, "What?! Just six plastic horses?!, Come on!" :) Warmest regards, Dean

  4. Dean, this is a handsome vignette. Last figures on the workbench for 2017? Tell me it isn’t so. Oh, I have some spare figures you could paint!

    1. Lol! You're probably correct, Jonathan. I may find some old lead (or plastic) rolling around a bin drawer to paint up before ringing in the New Year. Warmest Regards, Dean

  5. Very nice job Dean. I can imagine Friar Tuck sitting atop this kit as well.

    1. Lol! Yes, it would be appropriate for a monk or some other cleric type lurking around the wine. Kindest Regards, Dean

  9. Great little scene Dean. All of the Perry Wagons and Carts are really nice models - and really useful in games!

  10. Oh I like that. Nicely arranged, and the cup came out well. I agree some stuff hanging off wagon would be a nice touch. In the Saga skirmish game this would be an excellent baggage vignette that would need to be escorted off field to win. Usually there are three of them.

    Cheers
