Equites Catafractarii Despite the name, this does not refer to cataphracts, this can either be Sarmatian mercenary lancers, or Roman cavalry armed in Sarmation fashion (lance armed cavalry), they might have a light section of armour across the front of the horse.

Legionaries Legionaries use rectangular shields early on in this list, there are a number of designs that are known, but the colours used are unknown (so pick something that looks cool).
