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.

Zaporozhian Cossacks with their new banner

A band of Zaporozhian Cossacks have been given a revamp, rebased, and a suitable banner. They are now on the march to join the Muscovite army on their planned campaign. MGB

    1. Thanks Phil, its a pretty complex flag, and I have found reports that it is 17th, 18th, or 20th century in date. Well it will do for the purposes I have in mind.

  2. I hope it's a summer campaign you have in mind, dressed like that!

    1. Dave, hahaha, these Cossacks are sturdy fellows, might have something to do with what they drink?

    1. Thank you Iain, will probably go back and clean their faces a little, but I was keen to see what the flag looked like. I'm also quite pleased with my converted commander.

    1. When I found the flag on the internet, had to have it in the collection.

  5. Fierce looking Zaporozhie! I used to have a whole army of them- same figures- but the paint job wasn't as good- nor the banner- my cossacks once managed to beat a late Teutonic Knights army- they're a sentimental favourite of mine- caused my Ottomans some trouble too!

    1. Great comment John. I intend for this unit to serve with my Medieval Muscovites probably more than my Renaissance army. Hope my figures are just as successful against the Tartars and Ottomans.
