Quick review: Sarissa 28mm MDF Dark Age Ox Cart

Sorry things have been a bit quite lately but I blame Jake Thornton and Neil Shuck. After listening to the Meeples & Miniatures podcast about God of Battles I bought the rules and have become hooked. In the last two weeks I've bought and painted up two armies and I'm already thinking about buying two more! Thank god there's only ten armies in the book.

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 more observant of you may have noticed the square axles!

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).


  1. I love Sarissa, very good quality. Have a number of 28mm buildings of theirs.

    1. Lots of nice MDF stuff around these days.

  2. I like the look of that wagon! Very nice!
