Here is something not seen at the painting desk in ages, Romans! Not just any Romans either. This twelve-count of warriors is from the always handsome range of Aventine Miniatures' Romans. These figures have been lingering in the lead stockpile for longer than I remember. I could look it up to see exactly how long but won't to avoid potential embarrassment.
With the surge of a half-dozen Celt and Gallic units mustering off the painting desk in 2019, it was time to add some opposition for the barbarians before force size swung completely out of balance. Seeing the number of Celts still in the painting queue, it made good sense to throw a little opposition into the mix.After the two Celtic units working their way through the painting queue are completed, it will be time to assess progress on the build-up for Telamon. Celtic cavalry are still needed for the battle but perhaps excluding the cavalry action from the battle is possible? More research needed.
