Pike and Elephants



Foundry Pike - DPS Painted











As I mentioned in my last post I recently bought a big batch of second hand painted figures including these DPS painted Foundry pike and HCH painted Republican Roman Elephants (the Romans had sixteen beasts at Magnesia!). These figures have been rebased and although they are not finished yet, I was keen to get some photos of them.

The 1st Corps, Ptotelmaic Machimoi were painted by me and are really nice figures, similar in appearance to the Egyptian Marines of the Early Achaemenid Persian army.
