Norman War Wagon

I've never built a war wagon before for a DBA army. The wagon and oxen came from a trade with Dennis (old Minifigs). The figures are from Scott (Old Glory) and the rider is from Conquest Games. I may add a standard and some more shields to the wagon to make it look a bit more military, rather than the hay cart it is.

Overall, I'm a little "meh" about the wagon. The individual pieces are okay but together they are something of a mess--so many elements on the base it was hard to get a decent snap of it. Anyhow, done is done and I guess we see how this works in a game.

Up next: A 28mm HoTT Skaven army is underway--flesh, hair and metal done--now moving onto their clothes and the details. Nice figures. And I will primer some more 28mm metal medievals this afternoon.

the Normans had warwagons? i know what you feel about the overall impression: to me the piece appears to be more celtic than Norman.

It was one of the morphing lists (Anglo-Normans? can't recall) that required the war wagon. Yeah, it looks a bit chariot like except for the oxen. Could not find a decently priced 4-wheel wagon locally. Plus the length of that wagon would have been crazy.
