Medieval Prison Wagon MKII and Excecutioner

Due to a raising of taxes  there was enough funds in Hugh Jarse´s Koffers to have a spanking new prison wagon built. Not only was it affordable but due to some resistance to the tax rise, it was necessary.
This led to a bit of a conundrum with 22 non tax paying peasants having to be caught and thier property sold to raise the extra Money for the iron work, leading to the Phrase "catch 22".
As with the old Version, the door can be opened.....
....and the towing bar is movable. No yolk attached as yet some sutable oxen /draught horses Need finding. Some tax dodging individuals can Count themselves lucky that it´s not mobile.................yet.
For some unfortunate souls, the end stop won´t be getting them any further ahead in life...
Mr C.Hopper from Valdemar.

On Sunday it´s the 14th of July and it´s Bastille Day.
In 2011 there was the 14th of July challenge  over at the Gloranthan blog, I took part with my collection as it was then...HERE
This year there´s no big army day  but if anyone´s interested we could re-start the challenge for next year (and every year after)
Anyway, to clebrate the 14th, I´ll be posting most of my medieval armies this coming sunday.


  1. Wonderful modeling. Mr. Hopper was heard to say one day at the block, "Heads up, old fellow!" Cheery sort of guy, isn't he.

  2. Superb work Paul, these will really add to any setting.

  3. Beautiful, really beatiful work!

  4. Very nice work, a great bit of scratch building!

  5. Hola
    Que chulada de figuras y la prisión,pero el que mas me gusta y me llama la atención es el verdugo pasote.

  6. I like your explanation of the term Catch 22 and that's a magnificent chopper as well.

  7. Wow this is awesome work Paul!
    Like it a lot!

  8. Mr C. Hopper, oh how brilliant! Another stunning build Paul.

  9. Thanks :-D
    I´ve just noticed both of them, Mr C. Hopper and Mr L.Ash are wearing armbands on thier right wrists...suggestive?
    In a couple of days I will be able to re-produce the wagon (each one a handmade individua modell) if anyone wants one. Price, 20 euros plus the cost of P&P.

  10. Great one again Paul! And this one the door is closed! ;-)
