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.

Medieval Russians form up for Battle

Apologies for the lack of posts recently, I have been running several campaigns set in the 18th century and most of my wargaming time has been spent painting up figures for the AWI and FRW. However, it was a pleasure to return to my Late Medieval/ Early Renaissance Russian army and top-up several understrength units. Well they now total over eighty figures, and while there are some castings which I would like to add to this army, my plan was always to keep this collection small, just enough to have a fun game against my Tartar-Turkish forces. Most of the figures are Hinchcliffe, with a few Essex and TAG Miniatures. I must say the latter manufacturer has furnished some very nice commanders. MGB
