Early Successor Elephants













Here are a few photos of two Early Successor elephants that I've just finished painting. The figures are by Gripping Beast from their Polemarch Successor range. The elephants are resin while the crew are metal. There are not too many companies who actually do an early successor elephant with mahout and pikeman astride and both the crew and nellie are excellent figures. See my earlier post on Early Successor Elephants to compare the Essex and Tin Soldier elephants and crew.

  1. Very nice elies and crew! You don't see many of these early types. The closest would be Indian army ones. Best, Dean

  4. Great! Gripping Beast Elephants are so gripping :o) The elephant models look as if they are charging/ramming?

    cheers,

    1. They do have that kind of pose - about to get stuck in with their tusks!

  6. Oh, that is a nice one! The ellie looks like he has his mind set on knocking over a tree with his head.
