Admittedly, both these infantry units are fairly small light infantry skirmishing units, but it is certainly motivating to have a couple of battle ready units completed so quickly.
The unit above has four 2 figure bases of Spanish Caetrati. They are armed with javelins and a small shield and would cost 8points per base in Swordpoint rules, for a total of a mere 32 points.
Again, four bases of 2 javelin armed skirmishers with a small shield, but this time, these North African warriors are classed as Inferior Fighters in the Swordpoint army lists and, as such, only cost 5 points per base, for a total of just 20 points for the lot!
Since I last based the beast, I've added the final touches to the model itself; the shields on the sides of the howdah and the two javelin cases which fit on the back.
The new Swordpoint base is slightly bigger than the one I used earlier, so I employed the same idea that I had used with the cavalry, and simply cut another piece of board and glued it to the original to make it the correct dimensions.
There are a good two pages of special rules devoted to elephants in Swordpoint and I've not even started to get my head round those yet. A basic elephant costs 60 points in the army lists, although with the howdah, it would cost a minimum of 65 points and the lists only permit one elephant to be fielded in armies fighting in Italy.
The grand re-basing continues, with my unit of veteran African spearmen the next to get the treatment. So far, I have added a command base and now need to paint up a further eight figures to complete the 24 figure unit.
