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.

6th Streltsy Regiment takes to the field

Have just completed my second unit of streltsy. These belong to the 6th Moscow regiment. Work on completing two more regiments has already started. I quite like these traditional Hinchcliffe castings. MGB

    1. Thank you Willie, they still paint up nice and can be utilised with very fine castings from TAG. I like a bit of nostalgia in some of my collections.

    1. Thanks Phil, yes I think the yellow did mix up well, I sought to create a yellow ochre with highlights.

  4. I have always liked this small range from Hinchliffe. Especially the Russian noble cavalry. Lovely looking unit.

    1. I do agree Robbie, some fair figures in the range, and some very fair figures if you use the higher renaissance code numbers, which were designed at a later date.
