I have now completed a piece that will be most useful for big skirmish scenarios. The typical wagon train scenario is one of the most common wargaming scenarios out there, and quite fun too. So when putting together snowy terrain, for a frosty winter campaign, one definitly need some transports that can be raided( or defended) during a game. Now ordinary wagons used during the winter tend to bog down. Thus I do need horse sleighs. Now they are not easy to come by. I am not aware of any manufacturer out there that makes 28mm horse drawn sleighs. So if things are hard to find then one have to build things from scratch.
Using wooden spatulas and balsa wood I created a basic Scandinavian style horse drawn sleigh. The piece was put together using PVA glue. The basic model was then mounted on a piece of MDF.
Finally with a bit of paint, winter tufts and snow flock the piece was completed. I might have to create a pieces that will serve as a load(sacks and cradles)
