Recently I have been previewing various items from the Warbases product line and I have become a little bit stuck so I put these aside for a while.
I am short of crew(s).
Let me explain.
This is their gallows. I added a hang mans noose made from a bit of twisted wire.
Yes, the trap door opens.
This little switch operates the trap door, assuming you don't glue it shut by accident.
Here's a 28mm figure for scale.
This is Madame Guillotine.
Note the lifting rope I added (from twisted wire).
And a 28mm figure for scale.
And a real war machine, the Trebuchet.
Ropes made from twisted copper wire and ballast in the counter-weight from gravel.
This is a big beast but then I've seen a real one and it was a big beast too!
You will have cottoned on by now that I do not have suitable crew figures for these great little kits.
Building them was easy but crewing them is proving a little more difficult. This is where I need your help.
For the Gallows I obviously need a hang man and a dangling corpse and maybe a priest with prayerbook.
Madame Guillotine would be enhanced with a headless French fop, his detached head, a Revolutionary executioner and maybe another fop in waiting.
The Trebuchet, perhaps, a few Medieval engineer types, nationality not critical.
I look forward to your many and varied suggestions.
