I've just quickly put the elephant together using blu tack to give an idea of what it will look like when finished! There are some shields included to attach to the tower but I may not fix them on as I quite like the plain look. Please let me know if there is a reason why the shields could or should be attached.
I'm really impressed with this model and am sure it will be a real focal point on the battlefield and a highlight within the army!
I didn't want the pikes to be sticking out all directions or on different sides so I've chosen to mount the crew this way when they're painted, mainly for storage reasons. If they're all facing forward/roughly the same direction, I can easily fit them in the display cabinet or other storage drawer. Plus, the enemy will usually be infront of them!
An archer is also included in the pack of crew but as you can see from the photo above, there isn't room for a 3rd crew member in the tower - it's pretty cramped with two!
