'Defensive Terrain' from TeemuL - 'Overturned Carts'



"Grongur and Tharrig were pulling and pushing their brick loaded carts, when they noticed a small band of greenskins howling at them up the hill. They quickly unloaded the bricks from the carts and pulled them over beside some rocks and bushes. It wasn't much, but the greenskins were close, and they wanted to give them couple of bolts from their crossbows before the fight would get up, close and personal. They might even be able to hold them away until the reinforcements came."




The carts are from Warbases, a hand cart and a hay cart. They are glued on Warbases bases with some rocks, bricks and a bush from my terrain box.









I don't know about the scoring of these carts, but Grongur and Tharrig are brand new painted miniatures worth 5 points each. You might guess what my Tuesday entry contains...

  1. It can sense a desperate stand behind those carts...

    1. Yes, it's not much, but better than open ground.

    1. Thanks Francis! After I took the pictures, I noticed I forgot to add some highlights on rocks and bricks, but they'll do for now.

    1. Thank you, they were quite nice to paint in the end, although there are not that many details there.

  4. These are great - very versatile useful in may genres and periods.

    1. Thanks Pat! I planned to make the cars as removable at first, but decided to glue them to base in the end. That would have added some versatility even more, but even now they can be used in many different ways.

  5. Nice work on the adhoc wall, Teemu!
    Hopefully your lads had empty carts as I see no ale barrels! ;)

    1. Thank you David. The carts were not empty, there were some nice, red bricks on them. Much better cover than an ale barrel. ;)

    1. Thanks Sidney. It was quite a straight forward theme this time and I managed to add in couple of miniatures as well and short story, too. :)
