Iberian Heavy Cavalry

More mounted warriors here to fight Carthage's wars. These Newline figures come with one human and two horse poses and came with caetra shields. I tried to diversify the troopers by carefully twisting their heads with a pair of pliers. The two command figures introduce some alternative figures into the unit and in retrospect I think I should of gave a few of them a scutum shield as shown in Head's Armies of the Macedonian and Punic Wars. Maybe I could risk ordering some more to do that but their are some who would argue, convincingly, that I have far too many of these little men as it is... or I could just use the Hat Spanish cavalry that is waiting to be painted.
