Roman Medium Cavalry


The Roman armies of the Republic were never particularly  known for their cavalry, but with  the  expansions to their infantry in recent years, the cavalry arm was in serious need of reinforcements.  


Thus we have these fellows kicking off  Roman Month on the blog.   SPQR!


The Command figures are Crusader and the rank and file are Old Glory Roman Medium Cavalry.
 

Watch out for those sneaky Numidians!


The view the Carthaginian Cavalry usually has of the Roman mounted arm!

  5. What? No elephants? Trajan had elephants!

    1. The Republican Romans didn't employ Elephants. However, they became quite adept at defeating them, the battle of Zama in [articular being a case in point!

      (My Carthaginian army has 8 elephants, though!)
