Republican Roman Cavalry, HaT

So here is another update.

When i had made the Carthaginian Cavalry, see last post, I had some Republican Roman Cavalry, that I still had not painted. I ended up giving them what I considered a pretty ordinary uniform.

The units had to be a bit smaller than i really wanted, but, I later, when they came out, painted some Italeri Republican Roman Cavalry men, to make the units a bit bigger. Of course at the time I had no idea that they would be making some.

I was more or less uninterested in Republican Romans, and used mixed units, of both republican and imperial romans. Today I have 3 massive armies of Romans. 1 Republican, 1 Imperial, and 1 late imperial.

As can be seen in the pictures, shields were hand painted, and i was beginning to experiment with making horses more than 1 color, giving some "socks" in white, and blazes. I later showed these horses to a person who knew about horses, and the "socks" it turns out where too perfect for what they would be in nature.



  1. Hi Claus. Good start. :-D
    Your not the only one in Denmark, There is a Danish forum..
    Dansk Figursspilsforening
    I used to be there but a long time ago.

    1. Yeah,
      I was actually a member there already. From back in 2009 or 2008, but i got the impression from the board, back then, that they were not really interested in people doing their hobby in plastics. I may be wrong of course. I have put up a message on their boards, to tell them about my blog. We will see what happens next.

  2. Nice job on the painting Claus!!!

  3. This is indeed a good start. Welcome to the bloggers' world.
