Aventine Successor War Elephant Crews
The Aventine crews are ready to be mounted on their elephants. The photo below shows the crew for the two-man tower - it consists of the mahout and one spearman from crew pack C001, and a spearman from C004. The spearman from C004 should have a pelta in his upraised left arm. I may add it later.
The figures are superbly sculpted, and the armor is particularly well-detailed. The muscled-cuirasses have every detail you would think of - from the actual muscled sculpture to the hinges at the shoulders and breast and back plates. The linothoraxes are equally well-detailed and beautifully made.
The next photos show the crew for the three-man towered elephant. Three of the figures (including the driver) are from C003, and the bowman reaching for another arrow is from C005. I actually only ordered two crew sets, C001 and C003, but Keith threw in the samples from the other packs.
