A few days ago I got a parcel from Rob from Garrison Miniatures.
Inside were some samples from his range of classic 25mm Ancients.
They are lovely figures. Easy to paint and have that certain charme I love from these kind of models. I mean the older "vintage" 25mm figures are more appealing to me. Maybe because when I started gaming with toy soldiers it was airfix, matchbox etc that where the mainstay. The earlier Minifigs,Rose and of course Les Higgins and Garrison did ocasionally appear in the selves and on the wargames tables. But back to business.
When looking through the samples the models are not build the same. Some are more robust (like me) and others are more slim. Some taller some tinier. Just like real people. Wonderful.
My fovourites are the Celts and the Imperial Romans. There is one thing to mention. If you (like me) include them in your armies. Make them units on there own. As is with some makes, they do not fit to well with smaller makes like Hät or Airfix. Another thing is if you want your Hero/General really stand out. Rob kindly send one Celtic chieftain and I will put him on a base with some Italeri Gallics to make him a true Hero among the less muskular ones (some kind of Schwarzenegger).
Highly recommended models.
