ProjectSeleukid - heavy (but not too heavy) cavalry

Next up from Andrew's stable (pun intended) are four bases of Victrix Hellenistic heavy cavalry. For Project Seleukid, a couple of these bases could be used to represent the silvershield cavalry unit mentioned by Appian (if you chose to view these as a real unit rather than a confused account of the silvershield infantry). However, more generally these will see service as non-cataphract heavy cavalry such as the 3,000 politikoi cavalry mentioned at Daphne in 167 BC.
