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. Miniatures are mainly 28mm with a growing collection in 54mm. 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.

Andalusian, Almohad/Marinid, and Hafsid garrison flags

Just completed a few more garrison flags for my several Arab and Moorish dynasties. As these are based on Christian manuscripts , their accuracy may be in some doubt, but they are too colourful to reject completely. The top two are for my Hafsids. The checkered flag and the field command flag will be used by the Almohad/Marinid army. The six pointed star flag is influenced by one used by Moors in Spain, but could also represent Jewish allies. Even when staging small war-games these large banners add a great deal to the visual impact. MGB
