Wargame Rules

BLOG BACKGROUND AND WARGAME RULES
I have set up this blog for my wargaming interests in the 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.

Almohad Moorish Cavalry form up for Battle

I'm working to build up my collection of Moorish/Arab cavalry and the Almohads now have two units of noblemen with their retinues. The colour coordination is somewhat exaggerated but I quite like this feature to my three, small Moorish armies. Many of their dynasties are known to have possessed 'mamluk' cavalry as personal guards in addition to civic stores of arms and armour so I am not going to rule out a measure of uniformity in some units.

The Russian Streltsy regiments form up.

Another small battalion has just been completed and I thought it was time to have a field day with all the battalions. The new unit is the 12th Moscow regiment. MGB
