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.

MORE MUSCOVITE BOYAR CAVALRY 1400-1650

In preparation for an upcoming game, finally got round to clearing another batch of Muscovite cavalry. Eighteen more are now ready for service, this now gives a total of 44, but I'm planning to increase several of the units with banner carrying figures, to a strength of sixteen per unit. MGB

    1. Thanks for the support, Phil. Staging a living history display this weekend, but some members fight war-games and will be joining me on Friday for a game or two. Yes, I like the Boyar cavalry but I'm aiming to stop with about 80 cavalry for the Muscovites, including Cossacks. At the moment I have about 60 complete.

    1. Although we normally agree on most things, Robbie, on this one I must differ, preferring the later renaissance castings. Can't comment on other Hinchcliffe ranges which you will know much more about than I. What I like is the high numbered Renaissance figures can often be mixed with such fine castings as TAG, and others, with little to catch the eye.
