We are in the process of converting our elephant ranges to resin bodies and heads. This has allowed us to change the setup of the models in that they will now be cast in a form that will allow astride crews and howdahs. We will also remake the crew packs using the newer dollies and heads. Sounds that there isn’t a lot involved in that doesn’t it, well Adam has changed the legs, the necks, some of the heads and the overall effect means they are closer to the beasts seen on your TVs. 4 bodies and 6 heads to go to the resin guys soon. We will add the rest of the bodies next year.
The howdahs will be remodelled to fit the new one piece bodies and cast in pewter as will the tusks.
While they are away being cast we will start on the Thureophoroi and then the rest of the Seleucid cavalry. Once they are complete we will start on the long awaited Early Byzantines.
