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.

Muscovite Lesser Boyars on Foot, 1350-1550

Work on raising my Russian Medieval army continues. Here are the first ten spearmen, which I am claiming are Lesser Boyars, and will assist in any siege games against the Tartars. MGB


  1. Those are very nice figures, are they from Hinchliffe?

    1. Hi Robbie, yes indeed, they have a new mould which ensured they arrived very clean, but I still had to drill the hands to provide the pike. But I like them, and I think they are worth the effort, I have another six to paint. Tempted to get some more. Michael
