Showcase: Pike & Shotte Mule Train

The roads of Britain and Europe in the 17th century were legendarily poor in the main. All heavy goods were moved by sea and river wherever possible, carts being suitable for light loads only. Day-to-day loads of food, forage and barrels of powder could more easily, and more reliably, be carried on the backs of men, horses or best of all, mules.


Warlord’s baggage train has a muleteer leading his stubborn, braying, charges in a daisy chain, hoping the loads will stay on and no enemy patrol pick up on their noisy passage.
