Romans for re-basing

For ease of movement around the gaming table, these Spanish legionaries are being re-based! Rather than based on 25mm square individual bases, they will be multi-based, four to a base. This will make them look a lot more realistic and make them easier to move around the table.


This unit is currently missing its standard and musician but these are part painted and should be finished soon. I also plan to add another 8 legionaries, making a unit of 24 figures in total.



I also plan to rebase these Spanish cavalry troops as their bases are too small and they cannot be moved in a column because their tails overlap and touch. I plan to mount them on 60x60 bases (currently on 60x40). I am however having a bit of trouble as they're stuck to their wooden bases rather well! They were textured using a paste mixture similar to that used by BigRedBat but I'm struggling to get that off! This unit of 9 cavalry troops will last my Romans for quite some time before I HAVE to paint some more horses (I hate painting horses).

Just a quick question, in the WAB rules, would you count these as heavy or light Spanish cavalry?

The cavalry models appear to be unarmored - would probably work best as light cav.
