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 streltsy, the 11th Moscow Regiment

This unit of streltsy, or shooters, represents the 11th Moscow. It was not a particularly large unit so twelve figures will suffice to represent it. Another unit, the 12th will follow, and I also have a few spares which I will form into a baggage guard, perhaps another numbered regiment. Just arrived today was a package from Hinchcliffe which included twenty Wallachian halberdiers. The figures arrived flash free as they are new moulds. My intention is to paint them up as Russian guards or dismounted boyars for the 15-16th centuries. MGB

    1. Yes Robbie, I had seen some once before and thought how nice they looked, I guessed they were Hinchcliffe. Again, they are one of the higher code numbers which are quite modern looking. Now Ian Hind has made new moulds so many in the renaissance range are largely flash free, which is nice.

    1. Thanks Willie, I know the streltsy are perhaps showing their age a little, but I like them and they do paint up well as an army. I am also planning to add some more TAG to this collection.
