Riding into Battle

 

Ancient Gallic Cavalry
By: Victrix
Scale: 1/56
Item no: VXA033 Price: £19.95
Web: www.victrixlimited.com

Early cavalry formations may not have had the glamour and prestige of their more well-known Medieval counterparts, but were equally effective on the battlefield, combining scout, skirmish and offensive capabilities in a single unit.
Victrix offers a superb addition to any wargaming scene (or indeed a period diorama) in the shape of this 12 horse/rider package, presented on four identical styrene runners (each holding sufficient parts for three cavalrymen and their mounts). As usual, there are plenty of options, with two types of headgear (crested/uncrested), plus various long/short single/double-headed javelins, swords and shields. There are even optional cloaks for two of the riders, a horned standard, and (for the more blood-thirsty) a trophy head (to be attached to a saddle pommel). The detail on the parts is excellent, with integrally moulded chain mail, while the horses’ reins and tack are well-rendered for this scale.
