    Yay, they're here! The mammoth animations are impressively realistic. Nasty fall for those riders :)
    The swords look kind of silly up there hacking at the mammoth's head. I'm having a hard time visualizing how that will look in combat against a foot unit. A lance might be more practical.

    Well, they're supposed to be urging the mammoth on rather than attacking in their own right. But it is not easy to make this clear at that scale.

    Awesome work there Plotinus! :goodjob:

    I also thought of the absurdity of fighting with swords on top of Mammoths, but I suppose you're right, with a beast of that size it doesnt make much difference if the rider has a weapon or not ;)

    Still, if you think of doing alternate versions, the Viking could use throwing axes and the Japanese a bow, for instances.

    And if you want to do more, the best idea might be upgrades to these, armored mammoths, platforms to hold multiple riders. But I suppose this would not be easy.

    I'll definitely use these! Thanks!

    Looks good enough, but I dont like your scale. I like all human model in the same scale with Sandris.
    Respect for your own elephant death and fight animations - these looks very good.

    Excellent Work on All these Mammoths Plotinus... I am sure the Death Roll animation was not an easy task and you accomplished it with Realism... Outstanding :goodjob:

    I was afraid that perhaps the model I gave you for the tusks wouldn't fit in so well. It's good to see my fears were unfounded. :thumbsup:
