I'm setting up a little Roman cavalry vs. Dacian raiding party scenario. The premise is a unit of auxiliary cavalrymen have caught up with a Dacian raiding party. The basic army in SBH calls for 300 pts worth of troops. You can easily field two opposing armies with only two boxes of 1/72 plastic soldiers. I moved the army points up to about 420 in order to get a suitable amount of variety in troop types. I am using Hat's sets, #8069 Dacians, #8066 Imperial Roman Auxiliary Cavalry, and two models from #8074 Imperial Roman Auxiliaries.
I'm painting the models now. The infantry are mounted on 20x20 mm. square bases. The cavalry are on 20 x 40 mm. I thought about using circular bases, but these rectangles allow me to also use the models for Warhammer Ancient Battles. I can really sympathize with those that think 28m WAB models should be played on 25 x 25 mm bases. I can barely fit some of these smaller 20mm models on their squares!
Cavalry Leader, 92 pts x 1 (standard bearer)
Medium Cavalry, 62 pts x 3
Archer, 44 pts x1 (auxiliary archer on foot)
Light Infantryman, 28pts x 1 (slinger on foot)
Total points: 422
Leader, 60pts x 1 (standard bearer model)
Barbarians, 36pts x 3 (falx-wielding models)
Warriors, 30pts x 4 - (spearmen and swordsman)
Archers, 44pts x 3
Total points: 420
