AUC11 Gallic Cavalry with Spear (15mm)


Add to Wish List


This pack contains four Gallic cavalry with spear.

This period saw the large-scale expansion of native forces employed to complement the legions, made up of numeri (units) recruited from tribes within Rome's controlled territory and neighbouring allied tribes. Always chronically short of cavalry, large numbers of heavy and light mounted warriors were recruited in Spain, Gaul, Germany, Numidia and Thrace.

These native units were not integrated with the legions, but retained their own traditional leadership, organisation, armour and weapons.
