Simple Swordplay in Miniature Wargames magazine ...

The simple swordplay rules I developed earlier in the year to use with my 40mm musketeers (see this post) had some further development after the version that I made available.

I used the updated rules along with a scenario for an article which I submitted for publication in Miniatures Wargames. It was accepted and is in the December issue,  no 428 ,
nice to get an article published in a wargames magazine.

Polish Pancerni - Trial Figure painted

Another trial figure painted up, this time a pancerni.
with basic kit of sabre and shield. I plan to have units of these with a mix of war hammers, sabres, and short lance plus carbines.

I've sample some 28mm bits and know have a range of accessories I can use (saves me making a special mould)

  • Gripping Beast wire spears for lances
  • Front Rank sabres and straight swords
  • The Assault Group - Warhammer
  • Essex Miniatures - 16c musket, to use as carbine
  • Pancerni Shields - timurid whicker shields from Grippping Beast 
Next trial paint figure will be 'cossack' light cavalry'
