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.

Siege of Malta 1565 Ottoman flags

The Matteo Perez di Allecio engravings of 1582 of the earlier Siege of Malta are often overlooked by wargamers, yet they include some interesting suggestions for Ottoman flags. Hope my renditions below are of interest. Note, the originals have somewhat rounded tails but I believe the style given here is more authentic. I have attempted to utilize the apparent shadings to make my conjectural choice in colours.
