Spears n' Roses

Like Les Higgins, Russell Gammage of Rose Miniatures was a very talented sculptor who turned out elegant miniatures. The proportions of these 30mm figures - Ethiopian archer, Egyptian standard bearer and Nubian swordsman - are just about perfect. Sadly Gammage prefered to focus on 54mm and only really dabbled in smaller scales. One of his most famous peices was a 54mm Pharoah's chariot made in the early 1970s, though back then us adolescent boys took more of an interest in his Minoan range.

  1. They fit quite well with my Garrison 20mm figures - all my current Egyptian units have Rose standard bearers and I use Rose crews for all my Egyptian chariots.
