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. Miniatures are mainly 28mm with a growing collection in 54mm. 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.

Corsair Warrior

I recently staged a living history display at Torquay Museum, my group portraying late 18th century Royal Navy and British Marines. We were there to help promote the opening of their exhibition on piracy, fact and fiction. Of particularly interest for me was several items relating to the Corsairs, or Barbary coast pirates. Here's a photo Josh kindly took of their life sized Corsair Warrior. MGB
