Indian Mutiny British Troop Carrier Elephant

This is the Foundry British Troop Carrier elephant for their Indian Mutiny series. A lovely model I think, particularly the variety of poses given to the weary passengers (there's an extra model along with the seven featured here, to give more choice). The elephant was given a mix of Vallejo Greens and Browns to reflect its Indian heritage - I found out that African elephants are mainly grey! I've yet to do the base for him but reckon he'll be a nice feature on the table, perhaps even accompanying a few others on a hazardous convoy somewhere.

Prince Poniatowski - 28mm Command Figure

The Prince Poniatowski model from Front Rank miniatures. I loved this figure when I first clapped eyes on it, and finally picked one up at Triples this year. I decided to do him in a slightly different uniform which made him stand out from the rest of the Napoleonic generals in their red/white/blue etc. Front Rank also do some nice Napoleonic Polish infantry, so I'll probably get a couple of regiments for him to oversee shortly!

Jagdpanther - 20mm Britannia Miniatures

This is my completed Jagdpanther (also from Britannia/Grubby Tanks). Resplendent with its mighty 8.8cm gun. Both this and the Sturmtiger are part resin and metal kits. The hull and tracks being resin whilst the main armament and machine gun are metal. The detail is really nice with some battle damage here and there. It'll probably be used in a Panzermarsche game fairly soon, or maybe if we decide to adopt Rick Priestly's new upcoming Bolt-Action rules.
