Wargame Rules

BLOG BACKGROUND AND WARGAME RULES
I have set up this blog for my wargaming interests in the 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.

More Arab/Moorish Crossbowmen (Hafsids)

Just completed another batch of Arab or Moorish crossbowmen. These figures are mainly Black Tree Miniatures and I must say they were a pleasure to paint, there being little or no flash, and the designs lending themselves very well to the paint brush. A couple of converted javelin men are also serving with this unit. MGB

    1. Hi Robbie, a friend got me a bag of Black Tree off Ebay. I'm impressed, equal to Musketeer Miniatures and others. For war-games, I won't hesitate to draft them into my Ottoman army for some scenarios against the Spanish or Knights of St.John.
