MARIAN ROMANS

This is an "expansion backwards" from my Early Imperial Romans - I don't particularly like painting horses, so this lets me reuse the cavalry and light horse from that army to help build a new one.  The new elements include a general, the legion (blades), and Cenomani auxilia and psiloi. Not having much info on who I could best match to the figures, I spent a lot of time on Google before I identified the Cenomani as a suitable match. Located in what is presently northern Italy/Switzerland, the Cenomani were a branch of the Celtic Aulerci tribe that drove out the Estruscans. They assisted the Romans in the Gallic War and against Hannibal, but joined in the revolt of the Gauls under Hamilcar. They were defeated by Gaius Cornelius in 197 BC.
