Wargame Rules

I have set up this blog for my wargaming interests in the Muscovite-Tartar Wars, Reconquista Wars, the Barbary Coast Pirates, and the early campaigns of the Ottoman Turks and Saracens. Some lesser known crusades will also be covered. All miniatures are 28mm scale, if my photographs serve to encourage others to complete their collections I shall be pleased. I will also be mentioning other sites with interesting collections on the above. Do join the 'Friends' if you like what you see.

I prefer to use my own rules which are kept simple and involve eight-sided dice. These allow for fast results with various types of weaponry. Morale dominates my games.

Ottoman Silahtar Cavalry 1500-1800

Have recently completed a unit of Silahtars (Swordbearers). This formation was part of the Suvarileri (Household) cavalry belonging to the Ottoman Sultan. Note the distinct hat, similar but not the same as those used by the Janissaries. The figures are heavy converts from the splendid TAG and ESSEX ranges, the horses are Hinchliffe, the bow cases and quivers are from IRREGULAR MINIATURES
