Wargame Rules

BLOG BACKGROUND AND 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.

Muscovite Baggage Train with Guards

Having had a rest from painting miniatures during October (busy painting my house), got back to clearing some more Muscovites. For starters, have raised a baggage train, just needing a suitable rider to complete. And any spare figures I now pick up will be drafted into this Provincial Streltsy unit, uniformed in blue, which will be attached to the train for its protection. Expect several more posts very shortly as I typically like any new units to have their own posting on this blog.
No copyright infringement intended, I just love this 1909 painting by Appolinary Vasnetsov showing life in the City of Novgorod. MGB

    1. Thank you Iain, no army can move without some kind of baggage train, and it will open up some fine scenarios for wargaming.
