This lot date back to 1974. In those days I used to put figures into painting competitions. These were part of the army that won the Ancients section in the National Wargames Championships in 1974. It probably spoils the effect that they were the only entry.
The next unit was painted a bit faster and, for some reason, I painted the sarissae and belts white. Perhaps more weirdly, I never corrected the mistake.
No army in those days could do without the Britain's elephant, these ones serving as Indian elephants with a Macedonian crewman. They need a bit of work to overcome years of neglect, but overall seem to have survived quite well.
