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.

Ive just completed two more artillery pieces and eight artillerymen for my Renaissance Muscovites. Many of the original crew have also been redistributed about the seven cannon. The multibarreled piece is a Hinchcliffe medieval model with renaissance wheels and 18th century limber horses. The large iron barrelled cannon is a Dixon 18th century model with renaissance wheels added. The Muscovite rulers were fair collectors of strange artillery weapons and I hope this has partly been recreated here, but expect some more for my earlier Medieval Muscovites. Also shown, is a small unit of town or provincial streltsy, I decided to use some cossacks for this battalion to distinguish them from the Moscow streltsy. MGB
