  4. It's a very modern-looking carriage, in its design, very much like we still use today really. Or does that make us medieval?

  8. That's a pretty nice set, especially compared with the rest of Redbox. How do they compare to the MiniArt Hussites?

  10. Thanks:-D
    @ mekelnborg...we´re still medieval..only no-one has told us yet :-D
    @ Tim...and marshmallows ...yum!!
    @ Maurice..same style, same size. I´m mixing revell, miniart and orion alongside them to make halbardiers, crossbowmen and arquebusiers and you won´t notice the difference. Some of the zvezda bods are getting used as well and the airfix robinhood set has already been drafted in. A great expansion to the medieval range. :-D My two favourite bods are the one with the cannon ball and the one with the fuse...(originals, not my conversions) The faces look great :-D
    I hope the infantry, wagon and command sets are the same standard.
    @ Kp...there were 3 in the set...but after a failed experiment, one of the gun carriages got a wee bit damaged...well totally wrecked actually, but the barrel will make a good "stationary" bombard..so all is not lost and I´m going to get another set for more "experiments" :-D
    Cheers
