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.

Ottoman Cannon at Greenwich

In early September my living history society was commissioned to portray a Royal Navy Landing Party at the Greenwich Tall Ships event. Only a few paces from our encampment, next to the Maritime Museum, was this captured Ottoman cannon. I noted several names and actions ornamenting the gun carriage including Sir Edward Pellew, and his exploits against the Algerian corsairs in 1816.
