Elephants completed

29 April, 2010

The Carthaginian element of the army: command element, Libyan cavalry, Libyan spear, Libyan skirmishers and the elephants.

The Carthaginian army is now completed with all its options. I’ve just finished their elephants. These took quite a while, as putting them together was quite fiddly. It took the impetus of having the rest of the army completed to get them done. It also helped that I wanted them ready to go to Christchurch this weekend, when I get to mix business and pleasure by catching up with Keith of TWR for some DBA on the Saturday before a meeting on the Sunday.

The Carthaginian elephants. I've given them a skirmishing escort (as I couldn't see any other use for all those neat looking Libyans).

From another angle. I liked the shield colours of the Carthaginian cavalry so I repeated them for the spear and on these howdahs.

Front and back views.

The lighting’s not brilliant, as it’s was already getting dark when I took them outside. I’ve also updated the Army Page.

      Thanks, I’m looking forward to trying them out. I’ve generally been on the other end of elephants!

    The elephants look great! Are they CB?

    Love the shield designs too! The whole army looks good, now it needs to start winning!

      Thanks; yes, they’re all CB (apart from some of the camp followers). I’m very happy with how the shields turned out. The VVV transfers provide a nice level of uniformity within elements. but variety of designs overall.

      No excuses for not winning now the elephants are done!
