I've just finished this unit of Praetorian Cavalry with the new Warlord Games figures. They are Praetorian Cavalry from the First Dacian War 101-102 AD as depicted in Plate H of the Osprey book, Guardians of the Roman Empire. Both these cavalry and Praetorian infantry will be fighting for their emperor Trajan, in a Hail Caesar game tomorrow afternoon against the Dacians. A new emperor was often on the cards where the Praetorians were involved!
I've just noticed my blog counter has reached 20,000 hits so I'd like to thank everyone who has followed, commented on or visited my blog since I started it on April Fool's Day this year. I'd like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and happy gaming, painting, collecting and blogging for 2012!
Earlier in the week I got some of the new EIR Aventine Miniatures for the Macromannic Wars in the mail. They're just brilliant figures so I'll put aside the Mycenaeans temporarily and try and finish these and some other Romans over the Xmas/New Year break.
