movement 10 Spartacan Slaves

Concerning the Spartacus list;

I don't understand why slave units only get a movement of '10'. I would have thought that the slave units were more in line with warbands than heavily armoured drilled troops, such as the romans. Spartacus's slaves were formed into their ancestral tribal allegiances, eg German, Thracian, Gallic,etc, and were more lightly armed, and few had armour, and the accounts say that they used wicker type bucklers rather than the large roman scutum. They also managed to catch several roman commands napping and therefore were quite quick on the attack, although some of the roman commanders were hardly Scipio. What do you think.??

It could be that you make them M12 at a cost of 1pt per model. Seems pretty reasonable.
