Cheers; yes even the giraffe shields are transfers. They really being a dull paint scheme to life.

No actual giraffes were harmed in the finishing of these miniatures  :D

Those are wonderful. I love the shield designs and how you have got them all looking like a homogenous force but distintively different units.  Excellent.  :-* :-*

Thanks guys!  :D

I picked up enough transfers to try and get unity with my units without making them all the same - glad you like it  ;)

Cheers El Grego; I hope my elephants turn out well too - I killed my favourite series 7 brush, so that delayed me until today to get back to painting.

That is lovely, wish I could justify the money to get a set.

Very nice.  Love the little touch of using the elephant to step on an enemy.

None too shabby  8)
So are all those intricate patterns on the howdah and, erm.. saddlecloth, transfers? Rather amazing. What will they think of next!  ;)

Thanks! P

Almost all - I botched a transfer and had to hand paint one ...  ;)

The LBMS transfers are so simple to use, even in the fiddle parts of these blankets (corners). A sharp blade meant I could apply the transfer and trim what was not fitting on the spot.

Hey!

The transfers and all came out great but the paint job on the elephant is the bees knees!

Thanks Ray! I airbrushed the base, hand brushed up, and then used a thin airbrush filter to get the brown tones on the skin. Pretty happy with the result  :D

Cheers
