Seleucid Elephants on Parade

Well, I wanted to take a moment and update everyone on my progress towards completion of my Seleucid Army for the WAB GT.  I had shown the elephants as they were finished and now I have finished the crews and howdah.  One of the major considerations (in addition to painting) was making the howdah removable, which was accomplished with magnets and/or pins.  Well, here they are in their completed glory.

Fixing Some Old Models…

OLD MODELS NEVER DIE…THEY GET TOUCHED UP!

Well, in 2010 I painted these Aventine Cavalry for Adepticon 2011 as part of my Macedonian Army.  So, with time running out and my time-window for getting my painting done closes…I pulled these guys out and did some major touch-ups and added the shields.  While they don’t look as good as the rest of the stuff I am taking to England.  I am happy with them none the less.  Here is what they look like now!

Seleucid Elephant #3

Well, I just finished my third, and final elephant for the upcoming WAB GT.  The pressure to keep painting and finish everything before the GT is starting to mount as it comes down to the wire.  So rather than bore you with all my painting techniques and individual steps of the process,  here is the final model, which is available from Aventine Miniatures.  The first two pictures are without the howdah.
