I have picked up quite a few of the Warlord Romans and wanted to get some of the Aventine Roman Cavalry and wondering how do they compare scale wise to Warlord.

They look like very nice models on their site so hoping I can mix them with the Warlord models I already have:

Shouldn't be much of a problem, seeing as your mixing their Cavalry with Warlords infantry. Aventine has some really beautiful figures.

Warlord figures are really weedy little things, or at least the Macedonians are, and don't mix well with Aventine. I sold my Warlord figures and replaced them with Aventine/Victrix.

It depends which Warlords you have- the Aventine cavalry would be a good match for their larger Caesarians, but not their weeny EIRs. Their gear is too early for the EIRs, too, just about right for the Caesarians (although Roman cavalry were rare in that period). The Aventines are lovely minis though!

The Aventine figures are great. Quite a bit bigger than Warlord games plastics though the victrix plastics would work. The victrix cavalry are due soon also.

In separate units probably not an issue. The Aventine are big, bold 28mm figures. I find the Warlord plastic figures more on the smaller side. With that being said, I used Aventine Italian Tribes for my Roman allies and Crusader for my Romans and they look fine together on the table top.
