Marian Roman - DBA II/49

Today victory had been with enemy, if they had had a victor in command (Plutarch, Life of Caesar, 39, 8)

Six years ago, when I lived in Beijing, I bought two boxes of Italeri republican Romans (infantry and cavalry) in a small hobby shop in Andingmen Nei Dajie. I didn't know what to do with them at that time. They slept three years on a shelf, untouched, and then travelled the whole way from China to Germany. Two years later, I started playing DBA 2.2. They have obviously been my first DBA army: II/49 Marian Roman. Strelets Roman velites and slingers joined in and complete the army. Soon (relatively soon) new figures will be added to align the army composition to DBA 3.0.

Napoleonic French cuirassiers

Painted almost an year ago. A classic. Not one of my best work. Yet, Napoleonic cavalry always rock!
