Le Dead Nellie

Mon ami Greg Privat has painted his dead elephant for our Zama game (each of the main contributors is painting one, and we'll randomly swap them on the day).

 
Greg's elephant is very spectacular, and he's done a lot of conversion work on the piece, giving it a squashed tower, padding and a chain headpiece. Luvverly work!

 There are some more pics, and progress pics, on Greg's Gloarmy blog, which is always worth a visit.

I got a sneak peek at this beauty a couple of days ago, a true master class here.

Hi Secundus; he's good, that Greg! Very imaginative, and bold, too.

Hi too, vG!

Absolutely fantastic, it is as if, it has just happened and the dust has barely settled!

That is one huge talent

Your base model was brilliant and your friend has gone the extra mile to show it off to its best potential

Wow

You're all extremely talented. I'm surprised at the great variety of stands you're all making from a single model. The padding on this one is great and the smashed howda is brilliant. Well done.

Top stuff. Love the smashed howdah.

Congrats to the painter / modeller - class work.

Just thinking - a great finishing touch could have been a Carthaginian poking his head out of the wreckage!

"What the hell was THAT!?"

Beautiful work; so realistically portrayed its a harsh reminder of the reality of war - even more so than depictions of human casualties. Dean

This is such a great cooperative project! You can really picture the impact with this one.
