So with all the painting and assembly of various figures I've had little spare time for blogging even though I do have lots of things I want to post about. Anyway what does this have to do with the Ox Cart? In GoB you need a camp and a baggage train so I thought the Ox Cart would do nicely as the centre piece of the baggage train. It will also see some use with my Dux Britanniarum troops once I find time to paint them up.
The cart comes pre-cut on a single sheet of MDF with a sheet of instructions. It was easy to assemble, with the parts only fitting one way, so it just took a few minutes to complete. The finished model looks great. My only concern is that the yoke is a bit thin and may break easily if you're not careful. There's a few photos of the finished model below with some Mantic undead models to give you some idea of the scale. I haven't decided whether I'm going to paint the cart yet as it doesn't look too bad as it is.

The kit is only £3.50 which I think is a bargain. I got mine from Arcane Scenery & Models (great service btw I ordered Friday afternoon and it arrived Saturday morning) along with a few other bits & pieces I'll post about later.
A great kit at a great price I give it 9.5/10 (I would have given it 10/10 if the yolk had been a bit thicker).
