The kit is a resin/metal combo and is just a blast to put together and paint. I lost the riding crop the driver is supposed to using and replaced it with a javelin. When I say lost, I really mean I dropped it on the floor and it got lost in the dimensional time warp under my workbench that has an insatiable appetite for detail parts.
Another shot of the Ellie - I tried to put a little more effort into the basing.
In terms of points I'll leave that up to the minion of the day. There are 3 full figures for 15 points and then I'll let you score the Ellie!
I couldn't resist putting in a picture of my War Elephant collection - the middle two have been submitted as part of this Challenge, while the outer two where completed a few years earlier. I probably so go about building a Successor army!
Maybe an all-Ellie force?
Ok let's deal with the Heffalump first, and it's a fine looking pachyderm. That top shot is wonderful, I wouldn't want him barrelling down on me. I'll count the beast as a vehicle and count 3 crew for a total of 30 points on the entry. I like the side by side comparison in the last picture. The elephant just towers over the AFVs.
Now that's your fifth post in your fourth period today! That is just epically insane! Not to mentioned that you've hit 357 points today and topped my total for the entire challenge to date. That's quite a points bomb worth of work for one snowy weekend. I will also note that this total values you into first place on the leader board and puts you tantalisingly close (in Miles terms) to your benchmark at 1760/2000 points. Any thoughts on upping the ante there Miles?
