The inevitable elephant (not easy to say!).
Ready to cause mayhem, probably to its own side if I remember the old WAB rules correctly!
This is an Aventine model, and very nice too.
Getting the right colour for elephants is tricky. Yes, we know they're grey, but... when you see them, like so many living creatures, their actual colour is less easy to define and represent. There's a brownishness to them, and the grey is darker than you might imagine.
Surfing through images on the net led to even more difficulty to really define the colour to paint... in the end, its a series of washes, and drybrushed highlights. I've also picked out some pink-ish/fleshy coloured blotches and patches in small areas just for variation and to bring the creature to life a bit, mainly around the snout of the trunk, and parts of the ears, but I was careful not to overdo this.
Anyway, I'm happy with the result. And, I suppose, that's all that really matters.
