The bulk of the cavalry arm in any imperial Roman army was made up of auxiliaries, despite what innumerable Hollywood films would have us believe, but there was still a small amount of regular legionary cavalry, including those supporting the Praetorian Guard & these were normally brigaded together when on the battlefield. It is these men that are the subject of this set.

The men wear mail armour & appropriately styled helmets with small crests. During the earlier imperial period these crests were not always worn in the field, so can be trimmed off if not required. The shape of the shield is well documented and suggests a possible Germanic origin to these troops, although shields from other sets such as the auxiliary cavalry could also be utilised here. The shield fits on a peg on the man's hand, & the fit is very secure. Overall the figures are entirely accurate.

The horses are correctly done in terms of harness & saddles, although we would have liked to have seen a saddlecloth under the saddle.

Detail is excellent with good texture on the mail & all items of clothing correctly done. Flash is minimal and these are good quality sculptures. The different ways in which the mail is trimmed at the hem suggest an attempt to make the figures usable for the longest possible time period, & indeed these are suitable for much of the Imperial period. While not representing the bulk of the cavalry, these figures are nonetheless an element in many imperial armies and their release fills a serious gap in the market.
