War Elephant

G'day All,
today, a 1/72 War Elephant and crew from Zvezda - I hope you like it :)
Painted for my son's collection.
This will be an entry for The Guild Wargamers "Armour" Group Build too.

  1. Excellent work all around. This makes me feel like spending the 30$ they're priced at my local hobby shop!

    1. Thanks FF.
      $30 seems a bit steep, the set goes for about $20 from Model Hobbies in the UK, even with postage should still be about $25.

  2. Whoa, Nellie!

    That's lovely work, JS. I expecially like the detail you've achieved with the elephant's skin.

  3. Cheers mate :) The nice wrinkly Heffalump sculpt made it easier to paint.

    1. Ha! I knew you'd say something like that, trying to entice me into your Ancient snare of doom :D
      Thanks for saying such nice things though ;)

    2. Oh, go on, admit it - that was much more fun than painting yet more kakhi!

  5. Very nice work, but I bet you still snuck some khaki on there somewhere ;-) I saw the set of Elephant Armour they have at the Royal Armouries Museum a couple of years back, must have been bloody terrifying facing one of these in the flesh!

    1. No, the brush didn't go near Khaki or "English Uniform" on this occasion - I'll have to paint some Tommies to get my fix.....;-)
      I'm glad you liked the Jumbo, I certainly wouldn't like to have been in its path either.

  6. Wow! Cavalry is colourful, camelry is cool but Jumblery is just the business. I can hardly believe it's plastic. Fantastic job.
