Searching for inspiration… I’m running a megagame in the autumn, set around the time of Belisarius’ invasion of Italy. That takes care of the wargamers, but for the characters playing the court in Constantinople I want them to have some entertainment in the form of chariot-racing at the Hippodrome. I’m working on the rules right now (need to play each race in around 5 minutes, tops), but am struggling to identify suitable chariots. Before I resort to foamboard, has anyone got any suggestions for plastic or metal, at least 28mm scale and available in the UK? Even toys would do.25/05/2017 at 00:00 #6291525/05/2017 at 10:31 #62947Fredd BloggsParticipant25/05/2017 at 11:52 #62963Rod RobertsonParticipant
Have a look at Essex 28mm Chariots. They have chariots from biblical times up to Roman times (but no actual Roman chariots per se).
Also Wargames Foundry has some too.
Cheers and good gaming.

From memory I think Irregular Miniatures might do stuff for Circus Maximus.25/05/2017 at 23:37 #63048Paul HowarthParticipant
Many thanks chaps. I saw the Italeri ones thanks Fredd – I’m after 8 though so at that price a little steep. I’ll check out the Essex line too Rod, although Mike, you may have solved my problem. I have a load of spare horses lying around.22/06/2017 at 21:57 #65392Michael CurtisParticipant
1st Corps do Persian and Successor scythed chariots that might work.25/06/2017 at 08:21 #65587
