Not Maximus, but Tiberius Claudius Maximus

Once Warlord Games announced the mounted version of Maximus Decimus Meridius I knew I would have to have one – even though I had no real need of the figure.

Well I have found a role: he’s to command my cavalry, a couple of turmae of cavalry and one of dromedarri. And he has a name: Tiberius Claudius Maximus.

The real Tiberius Claudius Maximus was a cavalry officer too. He is represented on Trajan’s column narrowly failing to capture the Dacian king Decebalus, who died by his own hand rather than be taken prisoner.

Tiberius Claudius Maximus ...

... and his warhound, Max
