I really want to Donkey Punch the guy who designed the SOK chariot.  I'm still trying to put one side on it. :(  I just need to find me some things to pull it now.

Got my chariot together finally, all painted up too with the rider.  I am deciding if I want to just but the regular rider on or not.  Still looking for something besides horse power but will still paint them.

I've got my chariot built as well. I didn't use any of the ones in the pic. Instead I scratch built something. I've also done some conversion work on the nepharite who is going to be standing in the chariot. Next up is painting the neph, the driver and the beasts.

Cut my base out of plexi over several days since all I got is an exacto.  Just have the driver left to finish.  I should have my pics up this week.

2" to 3" by 3" to 4", or so.  There is no standard.  I would say that 4"by 5" would be the upper limit.

I hope this helps you.

I should visit more often.  This contest has me intrigued, especially for Warzone.  Based on the rules, I take it that the "chariot" can have more than 2 wheels and doesn't neccesarily need to be pulled by a beast or thinking but could use some type of other power, say steam driven.  I've got two great ideas for Capitol and one for the Dark Legion.  I'm moving the end of this month so I don't know how much time I will have to work on it until after the 27th but will try to get it finished before contest end.

Any extra points if it can move under its own power?

Wheels are optional as long as it is a conveyance being pulled by something.  A pair of Pegasus scout bikes pulling a sled would be kool

At my current rate, I may have it ready for next year's Talamania.
