Invisible officer wrote:There is a tendency among rule writers to mix facts from different centuries. The imperial cavalry of the 1st and 2nd century was very different from the cavalry Julius Caesar had. Professional regulars compared to ad hoc units.
The 1st / 2nd cavalry was very professional and well trained. We have the sources that units had javelin cases , trained with javelins and we have battle records of successfull use of javelins against foot.
The poor reputation among gamers is not based on ancient sources and surely not deserved for that time.
