The same goes for my range of Wellington in India. It is nearly complete, just the artillery and the staff are missing. So I asked Massimo for the Crew and Andy to sculpt me a British gun (same system as in the AWI )
But the guns and wagons need oxen too.
So I asked Leo of Phersu Miniatures as I knew he is able to sulpt animals.
The next question was how to cast them. They have no bases and the legs are nearly paralel to each other.
Ulrike and Jörg Schilling was the help I needed. From them I got excellent castings,
See here my humble try to paint some samples.
First the Indian oxen
Next the African Oxen
And the idea behind is
Or simply to expand my range of the German Schutztruppe which I want to round up too.
But then I fear I need mules too:-)
Or simply use them as cavalry:-):-)
