Seleucid War Elephant


Over the last couple of days I have expanded my Seleucid Impetus Army by adding a Seleucid War Elephant to the ranks. The figure is a combination of three manufactures....the elephant is from 1st Corps, the crew are Aventine Miniatures and the escorts are from Crusader Miniatures. All of which I think support each other nicely. Lets just hope the big fella makes it into combat.

Thanks for the great comments everyone. I do love this period and have always wanted to paint one of these fellas up for sometime, but never got around to it.

Lovely work on the nellie and the foot skirmishers are a nice and well needed touch. The shading on the barding is spot in.

What a great centre piece this will make for your army. Every army needs something that little bit special and you have it hear.

A great looking vignette and the basing is very realistic.

Wow thanks for the comments again everyone I did not think I would have so many for the old Elephant. I will have to paint the other one up soon as well.
