Trunk Call - Connected

Half a day later and some Miliput!

Now all I need is some crew (probably Greek), a base, and a paintjob.

Since this is for my 'Old School' ancient collection I'll probably take inspiration from this book.

And this picture in particular!

If I'm really lucky I'll be able to find separate Greek and Persian crews which will allow me to use the elephant in more games.

Unfortunately the painting queue is rather long at the moment, Dux Britanniarum Britons have priority and then the Saxons and then there is Chain of Command to consider and possibly Longstreet.

Trunk Call

While I am waiting on the varnish drying on my Dux Britanniarum British Warriors I am working on some bits and pieces I picked up cheap on eBay.

This is a Minifigs S Range elephant. Can anyone spot the problem?

Yes, you spotted it! There is a very bad join line between the two halves of the body.

Oh, and there's no trunk!

The back end is fairly bad too but at least the tail is there.

I have added an armature made from a piece of copper wire.

The profile is fine. Now where did I put my Miliput?
