Strelets Roman cavalry on the march

One of the last sets of Romans I painted. They were intended to go with the Roman legion on the march set but I never got round to basing them...which I have now done.
PSR review here.
I like the original poses that strelets come up with, like the one of the officers struggling  (it looks) to pull his sword out of the sheath.
LOOK!!! The one at the far right is waving!! :-D
I added some bed/cloak rolls (pinched from 1/32nd Tamiya German infantry) and instead of having the shields attached to all thier backs as intended, I attached them to the sides..it gives a more varied and realistic look.

  1. That guy waving just broke the fourth wall! Will they keep the limes intact better than that? Stay tuned...
