If you need some jolly chaps with explosive lances riding around your battlefield on horseback… then you need to have a look at these from Victoria Miniatures!
erm how do you ignite the fusewire? hey, maybe they are light cavalry *groan*
Must say I like the look of em
health and safety rules means you cant light em
or the hotness of your natty jacket sets it on fire as you bathe in the admiring looks from your enemies
Or you have a spring mounted lance tip, that kicks the firing pin into a percussion cap.
Could work Problem is if you would still be holding the lance. Not sure horsey would be your friend after that! Poor Dobbin!
Praetorian IG. Says it all really. If you don’t have the old metals, maybe someone does plastic ‘Michael-Caine-in-Zulu’ style models you can glue lasguns to.

Victoria Lamb did a Praetorian Guard army years ago which was themed by Zulu movie. Even sculpted/converted a Michael Caine look-a-like for the commanding officer. It still on Coolminiornot: http://www.coolminiornot.com/11766?browseid=2968167
I like Wargames Factory models. But they make horrible Praetorian conversions. Victoria Lamb his sculpted up some Pretorian heads and torsos, the guns and arms are on the way. She has legs in kilts and is working on ‘guard’ legs. If you wanna convert Praetorian use them! http://www.victorialamb.com/store.html
Also Secret weapon have nice Praetorian head sculpted by Col. Graves. http://www.secretweaponminiatures.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=23&products_id=115&zenid=n52mbodla81i94veo3qrbq9dq3
Graves has done a cavalry kit too – which is really nice! http://colgravis.blogspot.com/p/praetorian-roughriders-for-sale.html
so, if you wanna convert Praetorians there is ample Good quality miniatures to use.
Praetorians are my thing- http://macharianthunderguard.blogspot.com/
