My Best Friend is a Mule

Possibly my favourite part of any wargames army is all the clutter that goes with the main troops. Finding reasons to use these as tokens on the gaming table is definitely up there in my top ten of what makes a good game. Unfortunately, 10mm has much less of this sort of fluff than the larger scales so a 10mm wargamer has to be more inventive. I thought I’d make a start with a Napoleonic soldier’s best friend: the trusty pack mule. I painted a Pendraken French artilleryman as a member of the Equipment Train. He has chestnut facings with a bit of blue piping on his collar. His trusty friend is also from the Pendraken catalogue.
