War elephants...Éléphants de guerre...


Bound for Glory ... with music!
En route pour la gloire...en musique!


Bonjour à tous,
J'ai repris mes pinceaux pour ajouter des grosses bestioles à mon armée Pyrrhus.
Avec un joueur de flûte à leurs côtés, la victoire est assurée.


Hello everyone,
I took my brushes again to add big critters to my  Pyrrhus army.
With a flute player with them, victory is assured.



Quelques ennemis non mélomanes ont déjà testé leurs grosses pattes...
Some not music lovers enemies  have already tested their big paws ...



New war elephants, sensitive to the melody of the flute ...
Nouveaux éléphants de guerre, sensibles à la mélodie de la flûte...



Pas sûr que les éléphants soient sensibles à la mélodie...mais peut-être les cornacs?
Not sure that elephants are sensitive to melody ... but perhaps the mahouts?



Le subtil cœur de mon armée Pyrrhus...
The subtle heart of my Pyrrhus  army ...

Et sitôt peints...

And as soon painted ...



Éléphants déjà testés lors de la venue de nos amis du club de Charnay-les Mâcon.
Elephants already tested during the visit of our friends from the Mâcon Charnay-club.



Bon, bientôt le rapport de leur première bataille, dans quelques jours...
Mais ceci est une autre histoire!

Well, soon the report of their first battle in a few days ...
But this is another story!

Merci,

Phil.

  6. Music has charms to soothe the savage breast - or beast! I'm sure after a few bars of Mancini's "Baby Elephant Walk" they'll all be dancing along in perfect formation, it just needs a bit of practice is all.

    How many spare flautists do you have in the ranks...?

  19. Très beau quator pachydermique et babaresque à faire trembler un régiment de barnabites sous un barnum! C'est la pire us et coutume connu dans le petit monde ludibelliste.

  25. Nice Work indeed Phil. I guess others might bring their Elephants along too,to the next war-game.That would make even more of such a splendor to colorful collections on that table top.I certainly look forward to that report. To counter such a threat i am thinking large mouse traps or indeed hundreds of tiny mice. See Ya Later Beano Boy
