At last after almost 2 years I have finished the elephant drawn heavy battery (40 pounder RBL) for the 2nd Afghan War. I realize now that it is not very practical for a wargame to use everything shown in the picture but I can finally put the project to rest. Thanks to Mark Urban and Jeff Baumal for their help. Below are some pictures for all to view.

Cinematic! I'm betting it wouldn't take too long to work them into a resupply or attack the train scenario.

Very awesome!

(Wish we could get those in 15mm)

Lion in the Stars – you can with a bit of creativity. Dixon has the elephant and gun (not quite the same limber) and bullocks and cart (would need to source a whole bunch more bullocks, though). Museum Miniatures could fill in most of the wagons – and essex would probably balance it all out. Give it a go. And in 15 mm, you could field the whole thing in a battle and not dominate the table.

wow………gorgeous and yeah that 40pdr will dominate something.

Congrats, Bob, your draft elephants look fantastic!
