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.

Late Medieval Russian Artillery and Crew

Its been a particularly bad weather day here in Devon so decided to clear another project. The bombard has been painted but out of active service for at least ten years, waiting for a suitable army. The figures were part of a batch of O.O.P. Essex Cossacks and Russians I picked up off ebay about 6 months ago. Today I was able to finish painting up the crew, and clear some card and wood to construct a suitably primitive, yet archer proof cover for my new Muscovite siege bombard. Michael


  1. Well done Micheal this is first rate.

    1. Thanks Robbie, it was a useful project bringing together items of little use into something that will add to the war-game table. Next for painting are foot boyars and mounted cossacks. And I'm thinking about getting some Russian armed peasants. Michael
