Thinking of getting this item I saw on Etsy

Add says they are from Poland, but it also says free shipping to US.

Anyone ever use them?

That is an incredible model. So detailed… I've ordered from Poland, before, but not from this vendor. Give it a go using PayPal, if possible. PayPal gives you around six months to recover your funds if the deal fails. Cheers!

That really is a lovely model! But I feel sorry for the horses! A team of 4 or 6 would look magnificent!

I've never dealt with this company, but out of curiosity I did a quick Google Fu.

What I found was a dizzying stampede of Etsy, Patreon and Crowdfunding sites. They're a Spanish couple that designs a large, but disorganized array of offerings, some as 3d print files and some as actual models. It seems their items are 32mm, so probably won't blend well with 28mm. The wagon itself is a data file for $12. USD It can be had as a model off ebay for $47 USD plus s&h from a 100% seller, who is apparently able to adjust for scale down to 28mm.

If you are set up with 3d print capability, I'd try a single data file and see how it goes. Otherwise, I'd get a model from an established 3d print vendor.

My personal experiences with continental vendors have been invariably exemplary. FWTW.

I don't know, those horses seem like a fatal vulnerability.

It'll still be able to fire the guns even if the horses are killed, it just won't be able to move.

Could "armour" the horses with some wood panels, but then you'll probably need another 2 horses in the team….but then you probably don't want to have to bring spare horses up during the battle.

That would definitely reach "awesome" status with a team of 8 horses and some form of protection at least equal to the wagon itself!

That wagon seems somewhat inspired by the (more boxy) Empire War Wagon released by GW back in summer 1992 (with the crew sculpted by the Perrys). I do have one of those, half-painted and half-assembled – should dig it up and complete it one day.

A larger team would look cool – but sure would take up a lot of space on the tabletop

I am a member of their Patreon. They produce excellent stl files for printing. Their focus is fantasy with a strong historical influence. I will probably never get a complete historical range out of it but I will get some solid and unique units.

Those are fantasy horses for a fantasy wagon. Each with the strength of an elephant! Who is using logic for this. A beautiful model, however, no matter how illogical:)

The armour on the horse seems to be pretty well thought out against Goblins infecting the carriage, but not for an actual battle :-)

Nice conept, but perhaps one should build it as the horses pushing the wagon – in that case even the backside armour would make some slight sense.

There is a Spanish company that also has printed steamwagons in the same Imperial style. Built some for a friend of mine lately, and they would fit perfectly in style with this.

Maybe 2 on the table, and 6(8!) when on display as a prized model? grin
