These are Xyston models also. Elephants have been real glass cannons under the Field of Glory rule system, but there is some talk of a proposed new version of the rules that will make them much more potent. Regardless, I just love the models, and even if under the present version of the rules they may not be worth the points, I still want to experiment with figuring out how to use them effectively. And besides, a Successor army just has to have elephants in it somewhere, doesn't it?
I was going to finish my Swiss halberdiers next, but my group of regional Ancients gamers is starting up a league this month, and since I will be playing the Successors in it, I'd like to paint up one more unit of phalangites for it instead of using the Old Glory 15 ones I presently have.
