Haradrim War Elephants (28mm Victrix Numidians)
Here's some pics of a unit of War Elephants for my Lord of the Rings Haradrim Army. I am ashamed to say that these were on the work bench progessing in stops and starts for a year but at least they are ready for action now.
Most of the troops in my Haradrim army are Games Workshop but I have added in quite a few historical figures that work well to my mind.
I painted the elephants and bases myself whilst the figures were part of a batch I had done for me by the excellent Simon Bennison.
6 elephants are based on 50mm square plastic bases, 2 are based on 50mm metal washers and are breakthough / disorder markers whilst the two prone beasts are based on old mini discs as spent / worn markers.
In the Victrix set you get two spare elephant halves as part of the options on offer. Rather than waste them I made two casualties from them adding greenstuff ears and cocktail stick tusks.
I have other Numdian and Carthaginian 28mm units pressed into LOTR service and will blog about those in due course.
