I created the war elephant out of disappointment with HaT's offering, their 1/72 set pantographed up to 54mm. The elephant was puny, with the crew jammed into a tower the size of an old telephone booth. I retained most of the crew figures, but drafted a more imposing Schleich elephant for war and scratchbuilt my own tower. The archer comes from a David & Goliath set, with a headswap he becomes a Hellenistic soldier. The phalanx are converted Italeri Carthaginians.
