I have been cracking on with painting Tony's baggage with various Early Medieval escorts.
First up, three Footsore Miniatures Germanic warriors, a Lord with a raven shield, a banner bearer with a draco and a spear armed warrior.
A small hand-cart, I added the side pieces that were left over from making one of the larger Gripping Beast carts, just cut them down to size. The wheels are from the Warlord Games cart. The escort this time is a Gripping Beast Viking, he's a particularly tall chap.
Continuing the manufacturer mash-up, this time a Warlord Games cart pulled by donkeys, but with the solid wheels from the Gripping Beast cart above. This one is escorted by a pair of Gripping Beast Norman footsoldiers.
The final cart is entirely Gripping Beast, the load of hay is made from a piece of Noch Wildgrass Foliage, it's the first time I have tried this and I'm quite happy how it turned out. This is escorted by a pair of Saxons.
Finally, I painted the few remaining baggage items to be used as loot tokens.
