Hi All,
is there a lot of difference between a Ancient Indian Elephant model and a 16th century Hindu Elephant with regards to the crew?

As I'm looking for the most cost effective way to raise a 28mm army ,Old Glory would seem to be the way to go.
The Bears Den and Foundry would end up getting a bit pricey.

Any thoughts,

Nick

The biggest difference would be styles in clothing. 17th century Hindu warriors appear to wear more than a dhoti(sp).
Also, the elephants are covered more; some in armor. There are also howdahs with heavy matchlocks mounted on them. All in all a very different look from 300 BC.
Have you considered converting the elephant models with scatch built tack? You could swop out the upper torso of the driver with a cavalry man's ? Add some infantry crew from the later period?
Check London War Room, they may have what you need (Fighting Men of India).
