  4. Very lovely elephant Paul. I've always loved elephants. They always add a lot of drama to the table top. Any plans for a line of them to crush the opposition under their well manicured feet?

  6. Wow! I'm impressed. Making a not to my self, bring more archers and less cavalry and dig lots of pits. Most rules seem to spook cavalry very quickly.

  8. very fun!
    I've always been tempted to do a Carthaginian army, because of the elephants & numidian cav (I love light cav), but when i start thinking about elephants I then think 'But an Indian army would have cooler looking elephants".. as you've proven here. Great stuff!
