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.

ARAB and MOORISH ARTILLERYMEN

Decided to clear my spares box of various middle eastern figures. What I particularly needed were diverse cannon crew, suitable to man Ottoman galleys, Arab fortifications, spare bombards and cannon. I think this has been quite successful, and fixing them on small, planked bases seems to have sorted out this problem. Milliput also helped to add diversity, in addition to replacing some of the heads. I was also keen to develop one of my medieval bombards in my collection by adding some suitably ad hoc field defences as part of the model. MGB

    1. Thanks for your support, Robbie. Since its probable that such a weapon would only be used in an established location I think it was right to add some field works. I can also supply Spanish, Portuguese, St.John gunners as the occasion needs.
