Baggage Train: Redux

Anyone who has ever visited a wargaming show (or convention for our continental cousins) will know that feeling of "ooooh, shinies" looking at the display stands of our favourite manufacturers. I am no exception to this, I too am afflicted with 'wargamers' disease'.

Earlier this month I visited Vapnartak, aka the York Show (mainly because most people can't spell it).

Cracking show, and a lovely drive there and back under beautiful blue skies, and a brief sojourn in to York centre for a bite to eat.

#4 son was distracted by Warlord's Dr Who stuff, whilst I was weak and gave in to Peter Pig ECW Covenator Scots - more on that in a later post.

Museum Miniatures were there, coupled with the logic of having some dragoon horseholders and appropriate bases in my 'spares box', led to the inevitable and more items were acquired for my baggage trains. This time a brace of covered wagons.



As with my other baggage trains they are nominally labelled as Parliamentarian and Royalist, but have no identifiers so could be used for either side.
