Saxony: Mortar Lafettenwagen




























This is the second project of a Lafettenwagen, carrying a 16pds-mortar; actually for Saxony´s artillery. The limber is taken by an old NMZ-set, also the horses and riders. The Lafettenwagen is built in Polystirol and mounted on two wheels of Matthias-Manske-Edition.
I am not sure what kind of vignette I can create for placing this set. The whole ensemble has a length of r.a. 25 cm, so placing them on a rectangular vignette will be beautiful when standing in a vitrine, but for wargaming it could be to big and slow. Maybe I will place just the horses on a vignette - I still don´t know.

  1. Absolutely *beautiful*, and so rarely done!
    Would not look really credible with less than 4 horses, I'm afraid.
