Having already produced one set of Carthaginian Elephant casualties, it was a surprise when a second appeared. This is quite similar to the first set, with a mahout and two soldiers laying dead. However here the elephant is not dead. Instead its body is at an angle to the ground, so it is either trying to get up or in the process of lying down.

As with the first set, the elephant here is correctly modelled as being much smaller than the elephants we see today. Once again it has no trace of a tower or other equipment, but the animal has been realistically sculpted.

Under the elephant's head is the mahout, already face down in the earth. Even if he is not dead at this moment, he would surely be crushed if the elephant's head comes down on him. The other two men are lying separately, and one still has his long spear by his side. They are appropriately costumed, though the detail is fair rather than excellent.

The latest in an expanding line of unusual resin figures, these are a fair addition to the ever more popular Punic Wars figures now in production.
