During the Republican & early Imperial Roman years the army was dominated by heavy infantry, with often small amounts of cavalry usually provided by allies. By the middle of the third century however things were changing, as the vast empire became ever more difficult to defend against the many raids & incursions. Smaller, mounted units could respond more quickly to such problems, but of course in battle both infantry & cavalry were still required. The result was a shift away from the dominance of infantry, although this still remained the majority of the army, so late Roman armies had more of a balanced split between the arms than previously.

The light cavalry was provided by a mixture of archers & javelin-armed troops.

Archery was another feature of Roman warfare that developed greatly by the later Empire, naturally influenced by the many steppe peoples and others to the east. Although Roman light cavalry such as this may well not have been manned by Italians, the skills of mounted archery had become much more common.

All the figures wear the fashionable long-sleeved tunic, which HaT have engraved to reflect the common patterns of discs & bands. On the lower legs all have cloth bindings which is authentic.

All the men carry a sword, correctly held on the left hip.

The sculpting is pretty good, and the men fit their horses very well, while there is no flash.

This is a workmanlike set which depicts its subject pretty well. The eight poses make a big difference when representing two different types of troops so the box does the job nicely.
