Welcome / Bienvenu

This blog presents my different wargames armies, after action reports, campaigns which I have run, some scenarios and a presentation of some of the different rules I play. The pages at the top of the blog contain historical information on the periods that interest me. They are an aid to my poor memory, and not in any way exhaustive nor necessarily correct. As I am an Englishman living in France, some pages are in English and others in French...sorry, I am too lazy to translate...

I hope this blog offers you much enjoyment and some inspiration !

Bulgar Empire (900-1014)

The Bulgars converted to Christianity during the 9th century.  Their empire was destroyed by Basil II in 1014, after a long and bloody war.

This is army list 155 of Art de la Guerre.

Figures are from Essex (mounted nobles, foot archers) and Old Glory (light horse archers and Slav foot).

This army is another combination of my Ghuzz / Khazar armies.

Noble cavalry :

Light horse archers :

Slav infantry :
The Bulgars were the ruling caste of a mostly Slavic population.  Their subjects served as spearmen.

Foot archers :
Poorer Bulgars provided foot archers, fighting either in massed formations or as skirmishers.
