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.

Landscape addition, on a budget

A visit yesterday to a local charity shop furnished an item which has made a nice landscape addition. It was originally some kind of resin table light ornament on an African theme. Quite tacky really, and missing the internal light, but they were only asking £1. At that price it was worth a gamble. With the project finished, scatter materials added to the trees, the waterfall narrowed and rejuvenated, here we see an Ottoman baggage train passing through Transylvania. (The elephants are not badly cast, and they too have been saved for a future project?) MGB

    1. Thanks Allan, I suspect it probably won't find its way being used in my 18th century games, but it will add something to Iberian and Balkan actions against the Moors and Ottomans.
