The War Elephants are now primed and based. I went over to the WABList and was pretty set - based on the advice I got there - to go with 50mm x 100mm bases. Later, a couple of posters from Down Under pitched in and suggested 60mm frontage as the elephants could then be used for other gaming rule sets. Sure enough, a unit of elephants in Impetus would have a frontage of 120mm. So I went with 60mm frontage for each elephant.
For Beast-09 I am applying a very light mint green. I started off with GW's Rotting Flesh, but it was a very old paint and the coverage wasn't happy, so I switched over to a Derivan paint, Webbing Green.
