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.

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!
