Troop Transport

Here are a few pictures of the transport elephants for the British and French. Elephants from Foundry and the European troops were London War Room. Painted by Peter, based by me.

  1. Beautiful and so 'in character'!

    European soldiers on such means of transportation look a little like tourist... quite appropriately for foreigners from so far away in such 'outlandish' (for them!) environment.

  2. Great! Such a great way of cementing the exotic feel. Do they serve a purpose in your game or are they pure eye candy?

  3. Thanks guys. I really can't get a good photo of these for some reason. They are much nicer in the flesh.

    Eye candy at the moment. but wouldn't it be a great variation of the infamous "defend the wagon train" type scenario : )

  5. Nicely painted by Peter. GWZ, I love the scenery you used for the base. Can I enquire please what company you use?

  6. Helen,

    The long green grass is by JG Miniatures, a 54mm company. I stick it to the base before I texture in sand. The grass tufts are a mix of Silfor and another company. Silflor is the better product imho.Ground flowers by Noch.The rushes/ long stemmed flowers are by Eslo.

  7. I do agree your photography might benefit from a "light box".

    Perhaps the troops carriers could be used to represent reinforcements entering at a specific time and place on the table.
    Would be a sin to not use them.
