Well looks like I have time tonight after all.  I did some free hand on the blade on the front of the chariot to give it a concave look to it.  Just snipped these weapons off.  Not quite sure where there supposed to go.   Any clues?



I was going to glue the crest on but my super glue dried out.   :icon_evil:

Thanks.  I have made some good progress the past few days painting up the figs that go into the back of the chariot.  I no pics yet.  When I get them assembled, I will take a few pics.

Nice NMM!  :clap2:

The questions we should be asking are these:
Does it have dungeons?
Does it have dragons?
Does it have transients who kill things for money?  Do you roll a d20?

Thanks guys for the encouragment.    Been a while since I added to this list.  I am torn what to put in the chariot .  This set comes with both the regular guys and what looks like a leader.  Any suggestions will be well recieved in this regard.

Anyway, here's a dead horse.

Is there enough room for the regular guys in front and the leader behind them? The dead horse is looking good.

Not quite sure where there supposed to go.   Any clues?

Diagobnaly axcross the inside of the circular hoops on the sides of the chariot. Not the outside, on the inside where "people" can reach them and they won't drop off out of reach.

That's diagonaly across with the upper side towards the back and the lower end towards the front (think of them as quivers for arrows & javelins).

If you want them both to fit in then you need to work out a very specific placing. They'll only fit one way and it looks unnatural but it works. They need to be side by side with the whipper/driver facing forwards (whip raised) and the warrior standing sideways (think archer/violinist stance with the feet).

I had to assemble a unit of five or six of these as a comission a few years ago and the crew only really seem to fit in one way (and even then one of them's got a foot almost half off the back of the chariot).

Thanks Balgin.  Assembly has never been my strong suit.  I think this is why I have been avoid painting this for so long. 

I will put them together and see what it looks like.  If I can't get it to look right I might have to flip a coin and deside which to put in.
