Product Description

ROM004C Repel Cavalry The order to repel cavalry by Roman officers brought about a defensive formation, in which the front rank formed a kneeling tight wall of shields with their pila protruding to form a line of spearheads. Undoubtedly it would be very hard to force a horse to break into such a formation. The most likely occurrence would be that the cavalry would come to a halt of its own accord ahead of the spearheads. It was at that moment that horse and rider would be at their most vulnerable against the rear rank stood behind the first line of infantry, who would then hurl their spears at them. Given the short distance and the training legionaries received, it is likely such halted cavalry, frantically trying to turn their horses around to retreat, whilst colliding with horses following in the charge, would prove very easy prey. If one further considers the possibility of archers being present, the effect on a cavalry formation could indeed be devastating. For those of you wondering, there are indeed plans to make a high quality Celtic war chariot to run up against our Romans later on in the series. ROM004 comes as a 2 man boxed figure set and is priced at $95/£75 per set which is a small reduction if you were to buy the 2 figures separately. For those of you wishing to buy multiples of 5 or more of these sets we do offer the facility to pay over 3 months, if this is of interest please email me at your earliest convenience. More Romans next month to add to your legion!
