Not based as they are going to be added to with bods from the the Andalusian  and  command sets.
A couple of conversions.
Simple conversion..the bod on the right gets a new arm from the Andalusian light  cavalry set.
The top half of the bod on the left comes from the  Andalusian Heavy Cavalry set anf the body of the bod on the left from the HaT gallic command set
