A new owner is bringing Thistle & Rose (T & R) 15mm miniatures back on line. I haven't painted 15mm ancients in ages so it was a great opportunity to get back in the saddle by painting a T & R Gallic army for Triumph.
T& R are true 15s, comparable in size with Corvis Belli. Not too tall or plump and very detailed. I don't know how they managed such fine detail on 15mm figures. Some of the shield work was so intricate I used washes and glazes to highlight the handiwork. The "Dying Gaul" figure is a great touch too.
The T & R FaceBook page is up here. When they go live, they'll have a deep bench of periods and armies. In fact, I should have another round of 15mm painting in the Spring with Saxons, Normans and Vikings.
This project was a good reminder that one can never paint too many Gauls. I do miss the days of playing ancients with our disbanded ancients group. One day!
