For colonial sets it needs to be considered to think of armies artillery system before making teh infantry or cavalry figures.Integrated Range of rifle and guns becomes increasingly important from 1820.

"I just saw pictures of the Dacian Cavalry,Mounted Falxmen! Totally INACCURATE! I thought the powers that be decided against such fantasy figures!"
The falx came in different sizes for single handed and double handed use, theres even ones that are knife sized.. in my opinion there is no problem with using this weapon from horseback although probarbly not two handed(the original masters had some 2-handed poses since altered) and the lack of stirrups would certainly effect the force of the blow...
