Elephants are charging into the world of Hail Caesar soon from Warlord Games. These ‘tanks of the ancient world’ fight for the Macedonian Successors and would have been a mighty pain to fight against on the battlefield.
Here you can see the Elephant looking incredibly heavily armoured with a big face plate for its front too. Considering that these big creatures could be felled by a plethora of spears in its side or arrows to scare it it makes sense that they’d make sure to cover them in armour.
I used to think that I’d feel rather happy being up their in that howdah or indeed sitting controlling the Elephant but you’d be effectively a sitting duck for an enterprising archer if they wanted to make a pin cushion of you.
Are you likely to pick up one of these for your army – maybe even two or three?
Let us know!
