Roman Light Cavalry

A unit of Roman Light Cavalry, perhaps to counter the darned Numidians!


Once again the command figure is Crusader, and the rest Old Glory.


Some Republican Roman army lists allow them some light cavalry, others don't. It hardly matters to me!


In part the numbers added up right for 10 Old Glory and 6 Crusader figures; that allowed me to make two 6 figure Medium Cavalry units, plus this 4 figure Light Cavalry unit. 


The Roman bean counters would be proud of the efficiency, especially considering the enormous toll the Punic Wars inflicted on the Republic!

  3. Nice work again Peter, and isn't it great when the numbers work out perfectly like this.

    1. Thanks, Lawrence! I try to make the numbers work out whenever possible.
      That's part of the challenge when planning an army or an order, right?!

    1. Thank you, Gary. Some of that might be caused by varying "seats" on the mounts!

    1. Thank you, Neil; I think the poses stand out a bit more with the 2 figure/60mm element basing than the three figures for the Medium cavalry.
