Ottoman versus Hungarian battle - battle report

I had to pause my wargaming hobby for several months because of my school obligations. This summer we could gather again with my friends and set up a huge 15th century battle with 7000 point armies on both sides.


Akıncı cavalry - finished unit

After a long time of silence, I am back again. During the pause I did not spend any time with wargaming. Inspite of this a unit of akinci light cavalry was successfully finished and my collection got a new storage cabinet with 7 shelves! It was urgent to increase my storgae capacity because of the continiously growing number of figures.


Janissary orta - finished unit

After one-and-a-half-month of silence I am here with my newest unit. I got the figures in December however I was lazy to paint so the process was really slow.


Ottoman Empire vs. Kingdom of Hungary - battle report

My Ottoman Turkish army is not big enough to fight a battle with it. However this weekend I could organize an Ottoman versus Hungarian battle with my friends because they have far enough figures to set up a large Ottoman army.


Ottoman army - new year project

As we are approaching the end of this year, I started to make plans for the next year. The decision was not too hard: I am planning to put together a 15th century Ottoman army next year.
It will be useful as an enemy for my 15th century Hungarian army and I also know other wargamers who are interested in this period. In this post I want to give details about the historical background, useful rules and figures of this project.


Games Day 2016 - battle report

After five months of preparition we could finally set up our table at the Games Day 2016. As I wrote in my previous post -  the battle was fought between the army of King Matthias and the Holy Roman Empire.
I put together a short description about the event and a battle report:


Games Day Budapest 2016 - incoming event

The biggest wargame event in Hungary is the "Games Day Budapest". There are usually more fantasy and sci-fi tables on the show than historicals. Some historical wargamers put together 3-4 tables every year (there are about 25-30 tables on the show in average). The themes of these historical tables used to be WWII North Africa, American Civil War, SAGA or some kind of medieval wargames.


Marching crossbowmen figures

Last time, after I finished the "Light Cavalry" set, a lot of arms with crossbows remained, because all of my horsemen from the set have lances. I decided to utilize these arms and crossbows in order to make foot crossbowmen.
