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.
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.
If you need plastic card for your own figure basing requirements you can find it here: https://www.drumandflag.co.uk/search?q=plastic+card
The paints used were Vallejo Game Color. If you need paints for your own projects you can see the range I stock here: https://www.drumandflag.co.uk/search?q=game+color
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.
If you need a set of these Victrix war elephants - including other crew options - for yourself you can see the listing here: https://www.drumandflag.co.uk/products/victrix-vxa029-african-war-elephant-28mm-hard-plastic
I have other Numdian and Carthaginian 28mm units pressed into LOTR service and will blog about those in due course.
Thanks for taking an interest in this blog post.
