I've just finished painting three Seleucid elephants for our refight of the Battle of Raphia this Sunday. The photos give you a bit of a preview of what the game will look like. Not all of the Seleucid forces are assembled yet and my rickety old table tennis table will literally be groaning under the weight of the combined armies.
Hopefully the game will look pretty good and it should be a lot of fun. Can the Machimoi win the day for Ptolemy IV or will the Seleucid advantage in elephants and cavalry be telling? I'll post a report and photos of our refight, after the game on Sunday.
