I've been successful in a couple of eBay auctions in the last week! Rather unusual for me as I don't like over paying for things on the whole. Amongst my successful bids have been, not one, but two 1/48th Corgi horse drawn omnibuses! Given that some were priced from £79 on the site I was really chuffed to get mine for a total outlay of £39 including postage and packing! That works out at about £15 each for the models. See what you think anyway ~
That brings my vehicle collection for the game to five now: the two omnibuses mentioned here; two prepainted carriages drawn by two and four horses respectively, which I got at a local Toy Emporium a while back, and which are shown in the two pictures below; and the Warbases Hansom Cab which I'm working on occasionally.
The omnibus is photographed straight out of the box in front of a run of Terraced Houses by Oshira Models. While the prepainted folk are a tad larger than the wargames figures for the game, they will do for me. As its a game we'll play occasionally over a year I'll not waste time and effort repainting them, they will do! Though I may base them just to protect the more vulnerable small pieces like the brakes.
