Republican Roman Cavalry
Here are a few photos of some Gripping Beast, Republican Roman cavalry that I have just finished. They are a 'small unit' in the Hail Caesar army list (pp. 53-54), like most of the Republican Roman units. We have a Seleucid Successors versus Republican Roman game lined up in a couple of weeks and none of us have used the Republican Romans in Hail Caesar before. While even on points, on paper the Seleucids seem to be a vastly stronger and more numerous army, but we will see how the 'triplex acies' of the Romans performs under these rules.
I just got my copy of Ronin in the mail today. These are Craig's new Samurai skirmish rules, that I mentioned in my last post. They look really good, with the same format and quality as Dux Bellorum and the usual high standards from Osprey publishing. I can't wait for the Northstar Samurai figures to arrive!
