Dharzi Hunting Dog miniature and Orc Supply Cart from Grenadier

This is the Grenadier Fantasy Lords Orc Supply Cart.

I needed a cart for an encounter, and found this minus the wheels and driver on eBay for 99p.

Trouble was, I didn’t have a clue what the creature was that was pulling it, and couldn’t find any info on the model anywhere online. For those interested in the product code, and what the miniature is supposed to look like, you can check it out here.

After a little research, I’ve settled on the animal being representative of a Dharzi Hunting Dog which was lifted from another intellectual property by TSR in one of the early Demigods and Deities books.

To replace each wheel, I super glued two, 2p pieces together, and covered them in plasti-card, adding a little texture with a scalpel and fine sandpaper. I only had a few hours between prepping the model and running the game, so sanded the axles down and attached the wheels flush to the cart. I then mounted it on a spare piece of plasti-card for a base.

UPDATE: the creature is listed as a “beast of burden” on the packaging for the Orc Beer Wagon, which is more or less the same, but has a large barrel in place of the sacks, chest and arrows.
