Does anyone know of any alternatives to HaT's and Newline Designs ancient Indians facing Alexander the Great? Preferably in plastics..

Forgot about that one, already have that set, but it has too few intantry poses, But I did find Caeasar's Arab Camel riders and bedouins set to be a close match.

Does anyone know of any plastic 1/72 shields that resemble the Indian ones used in "Alexander" Hydaspes scene? Or how to make a substitute or conversion?

Well I solved it by using Zvezda's shields and some cutting.

Thank you giorgio, plenty of shields in those sets!

Another problem I've encountered, are there any type of foliage or tree models that are more suited for Índia? Most tree models seem to be centered around western part of the world. I did buy some palm trees but there must be more..

Anyone know about elephants? Besides Zvezda, Lucky Toys and Hät, I looked for the Airfix Zoo set but expensive, anyone know a 3D printing company that have elephants ready to buy in 1/72 or any other alternative?

Shapeways could be your friend for 3D printed elephant.

Thank you Wiking, could have a bunch of these waiting to enter the battle, just wish there were some in moving action.

Cheap toy animal for children are always a very usable resource...

Bu the way also Newline designs has some 20mm indian War elephants which are nice bit maybe a little small (and not so much action..)

I've looked for elephant toys but found nothing suitable, and now there's a huge tariff on anything sent from China..
Also looked into Newline designs but they didn't look that attractive tbh. Maybe Zvezdas and HäT will be enough..
