War Elephant with Tower

£20.00

1 x 28mm Metal multi-part elephant model, 1 x mahout, 2 x Libyan Crew including Hoplon Shields to mount on the tower, and 1 x multi-part mdf tower @ £20

The Carthaginians seem to have adopted the use of Elephants as instruments of war following exposure to Pyrrhus and his beasts in the 3rd Century BC. The Carthaginians seem to have phased out war chariots, and developed an Elephant corp to replace them (with mixed success!) However, Pyrrhus used Indian elephants, and with limited access to such beasts, it seems the Carthaginians used the smaller (and now extinct) North African Forest Elephant, with its distinctive ‘saddle back’.

If they did indeed adopt Elephants following Pyrrhus’ invasion of Sicily then they would in all probability have been equipped with towers and a crew. This is one such beast.
