Here's last week's painting, from a set by Lampert (Frankfurter Zinnfiguren), Die Elefanten des Pyrrhus. It's the only one of the set I have, no matter since this elephant works for any Hellenistic army if we don't obsess over the accuracy of shield patterns. As always, painted in acrylics.
I have one more unpainted elephant, a great, well-armored Seleucid beast. I'll hold off on painting it though, need to work on more infantry and cavalry now. Too many elephants and my army will be like Germans top-heavy with Tiger tanks. The Macedonian infantry and cavalry castings have arrived from Heinrichsen. Now I have enough figures to finish the first phalanx, a dozen left to paint. Should be done in 2-3 weeks.
