Early Successor Elephants and Skirmishers

















Here are a few photos of some Early Successor elephants and skirmishers that I've been painting for our Command and Colors Ancients participation game of the Battle of Gabiene at Little Wars Canberra on the 6 November. The ellies, crew and skirmishers are all Gripping Beast figures from their Polemarch Successor range. I'm finishing off another four Essex elephants and two more skirmisher units and we should be good to go.  Rick and I have a warm up game, the Battle of Paraitacene, down at the club this Wednesday night, so that will be interesting to see how that goes.

  2. Fine pair of Ellie's, Mike! Almost hurts to see how far apart the pikemen's legs are spread trying to remain astraddle these wide beasts!

    1. Thanks Jonathan, it wouldn't have been very comfortable - I think I'd prefer a Howdah!
