  1. Elephant tutorial:
    Glue down a lima bean and allow to dry.
    Glue blanket saddle cut from business card cardstock over the main body of the elephant.
    Cut our a "valentine's" heart for the ears and head. If you leave enough thin trunk at the end that is better.
    Glue this to the head.
    Glue one small four unit "bumps" from the hair rollers on for the howdah.
    Paint with back primer and then paint up regularly with acrylics.

  2. Far out! Excellent extemporisation. Fine looking army. (I recall painting someone's 6mm armies - Alexandrian Macadonian and Porus's Indians - well over 20 years ago. Because of the scale, I went for colourful. I mean ... colourful. Looks like you've gone for the same look. You gotta be able to see the boys, and go oooh, and aaah.

  3. Very creative! There's a lot of work in those armies.
