What a masterpiece!

That is one well-adorned pachyderm.

Very detailed sculpt, I love the use of many colours, very fitting with the Indian aesthetic. I have one sitting on my painting bench.

I find myself challenged to find new ways to word compliments here at Benno's. This is yet another superb piece deserving of high praise. It's very humbling to be among such august company; master modelers who continually push the boundaries of beauty and possibility. You count among those most certainly Konrad.

You accepted the challenge and did it justice. Konrad has earned the title of master many times over, to my humble eyes.

I would have loved to do it.
Unfortunately, SPEIRA MINIATURES has no crew for the Indian elephant tower.
Only for the Carthaginian elephant.

Ah, ok, I only remember the Carthaginian crew. But maybe you can find some crew members from other manufacturers. For example Lucky Toys. Their Elephant is not as good as the Speira one but they had figures you could use, if you want...
