The dwarven construction team have finished their delving and departed, leaving me something that is starting to look distinctly room-like and rather less dank than previously. Just needs a bit more fitting out; painting, heating, more lighting and racks (no, not the ones for making you taller!). Progress.

I'm getting not one, but two new herds of elephants ready for the huge Ipsus game at the London GT in September. On the left are fifteen "Indian" Indian elephants, and on the right fourteen "Macedonian" Indian ride-on elephants.
The reason I need 29 more elephants is that we don't believe the howdah was in use at the time of Ipsus, and most of my previous elephants have these, so it's a perfect opportunity to collect more models. When these are finished and "in the field" I'll have six different elephant herds. As well as the two above, I'll have Successor Indian elephants with towers, Successor African elephants, Seleucid armoured elephants and Carthaginian African elephants.

Some of you may recall that I've been trying to create some much-needed additional storage space- got to put those minis somewhere! This is my dungeon level, now with added lighting and (much needed) waterproofing. Still some work to do... but coming along nicely.
You can see last year's dank hole here.
In other news I've a lot of modelling underway but nowhere and no time to take photos until next week. Also I'm getting together the end of May release of the Medieval Army List eBook- there should be three or four new lists and other new material. At the moment we have a new 100 Years War English list, for action in Britain as opposed to the continent. Also there's a Golden Horde list and a nice list for the obscure but interesting Zanj Revolt against the Abbasids; think Spartacus meets Isis.
