Republican Roman cavalry

Center two figures are from 1st Corp.
This unit will be a nice addition to my existing Republican Roman army, which currently has no cavalry support. I have one additional unit of Italian Allied cavalry I will soon follow-up with. This army is being used with the Warhammer Ancient Battles rules system and the Hannibal and the Punic Wars supplement.

The majority of these miniatures are 25mm Old Glory Republican Roman cavalry, Product ID: PPR-06 (10 figures with 3 three spear poses and shields). One miniature is from the Old Glory Oscan cavalry pack (the rest of which will be in my Italian Allied cavalry unit) and the two command figures are from 1st Corps.

Center figure is from Oscan cavalry pack.

I was disappointed by the limited poses and lack of command and I had issues drilling holes for the spears (some mangled hands). However, they painted up fairly well using my craft paints. The spears (also Old Glory) are probably too long but I am on a budget these days and used what I already had "in stock". In the end I am pretty happy with how they turned out.
