Colonial Ox Wagons

Posted by Fire at Will on 13 Mar 2019, 10:52

Two boxes of Hat Ox Wagons completed to replace some old Atlantic wagons I have used with my Zulus for too many years. The problem is the shortage of Oxen in the kits so I will have to rework some of the old oxen to use with the other wagons.

Although I'm using four oxen for a team in reality it would be twelve or more

By luck the barricades I use with the wagons to make a camp slide easily inside the wagons so I didn't need to add stowage, Here's the laager deployed.

Those HaT wagons look pretty good, painted up.

Looks great Will! :thumbup:

On PSR there was a comment that the canopy doesn't really fit. What is your experience with it?

It doesn't fit well, but I welded it on in the correct place.

Very nice indeed. It is a pity that Hat have not provided sufficient oxen to realistically pull the wagons especially after making the correct effort for their French limbers.

Best wishes,

very nice. The dual purpose barricade/stowage pieces are a neat idea.

Good tip for the canopy.

Someone suggested HaT should make a suplementary set with extra oxen, they seemed to think it was a good idea.
