Brown is almost standard for them. I doubt anyone cares about the horses' color as long as it drags the chariot, Dragonmasters arent snobs.

I can just imagine a wave of these things smashing into a tightly packed horde of soldiers...

Me too! It is of great play value to kids, especially if they have many of these. I would also like to get several (about 10, I suppose) of these, but I can't find it in ebay, or on bricklink. Oh well, it wasn't released very widely, as others have said.

One of the last sets I bought before my dark age. I loved the DM series. A great theme and loads of fun. I had two of these and remember thinking how cool it was. I think I ended up using a driver and archer in it though.

Nice set. For it's price great actually.

Dragon Masters rule!
This would be a good army builder to me.
This looks like a great set

I actually really like this set. One of the cool features is that the halberds fold out so that they can dismember all who stand before it! I was lucky enough to get one off of ebay and it looks great in front of a nice Dragon Knight force.

The most chariot-like of all the cart sets. Much better than some of the other stupid sets that have been passed off as chariots. Its a small set, but I like it. I liked it even more since it came with a little pirate fort. I'm not real fond of the helmet, since I have too many of them, but other than that, what more can you ask for in such a small set?

Old School,

Ah I had forgot about that aspect of it. I loved how the halbards came down to cut down enemy troops... very sinister looking as well.

I had forgotten the way that was designed until today when I reviewed this set. It seems as if back then it was a great design, but since recent years of not pointing all studs UP, it really looks like a small stone fort with wooden wheels pulled by a horse. If I had an update it would be more SNOT-y.

Blast from the past score = 7
Modern retro-spection score = 4

The Dragon Master is my least favorite minifigure design, they seem so lacking in armor. More of a barbarian horde akin to the Bulls thinks me.

I think that this ia quite a good small set although I only follow the dragon master sets with majisto in but I like the minifig and chariot. :)
