|The base is amazing.|
The base has an amazing amount of detail on it; especially for something that will be underneath a giant elephant model. This was actually pretty terrible to paint. Not because of a flaw in the model but because of the subject matter. Severed limbs, dead men and horses.
|The model assembled.|
In the picture above you can see the size of this. Those paint bottles are 76mm tall. The howdah can hold 12 28mm models.
|I went with yellow for the eye. It's my go to color for "baleful gaze".|
The details are amazing. The harness looks like it would actually work. The skin is perfect. The facial structure is right on.
|Details on the howdah.|
The howdah looks great. The wicker really takes a wash and highlight well. There is room to place and move models around in it. The whole thing feels plausible.
|The tail has been bobbed.|
The tail broke off during assembly, then broke in half again. I decided it wouldn't survive gaming so it stayed off. You can see how the base is lost under the giant model.
|The left side. Same as the right.|
I've had this model for four years. In the end it took a couple of nights and a Saturday to get it painted. I'm very happy with it. Now to use it in a game.
