To cross the Alps, you must have Elephants!

A pair of Foundry Elephants for Hannibal’s army.

Base is a rather small 50mm square.  I may build out a larger tray that I can drop this smaller base into for games where a bigger base would work better.

Paint Plan

Elephant:  Espresso primer (dark, dark brown) worked up with Dusky skin (Reaper) (which is actually grey)

Howda:  Bastion grey, desert stone, desert stone + yellowed bone

Blanket:  Terracotta (Foundry), gory red, rach red

Troops:  White armor with red tunics.  Tried Reapers Grey Liner as a line filler, worked as a black ink.

Mahout:  Started skin with dark brown, worked up with Ruddy Brown (R)
