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.
