... a historical wargame is the name of a battle system developed by the Wargamer Company. We wanted to create a realistic, playable and dynamic wargame which recreates the 17th century wars fought by the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth against Turkey, Muscovy, Sweden, Crimean Khanate and Cossacks. The period between 1640 and 1676, on which the game focuses, is a time of almost constant warfare waged by the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth on all fronts, in many cases with several enemies at the same time. Supplements planned for the game will be dedicated to specific wars and campaigns in which the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth took part during the entire 17th century.
From a modeller’s point of view the system will surely provide gamers with a huge range of figures for all the units of the armies of countries engaged in military operations. The Gaming figures are made of metal in the 15mm scale (figures are 15mm tall from base to eyes). We have made every effort so the figures are historically correct and true to every represented formation. In order to achieve this, just like in the case of rules, we conducted comprehensive research based on historical sources, supported by experts on 17th century military history, whose expertise helped us in many cases
Time scale: One turn is about 10-15 minutes of real time.
Figure and unit scale: 1 figure resembles 15-18 real soldiers. This means that an average banner of Polish horse will number 9 figures grouped on 3 bases (about 120 -150 soldiers in reality).
If you want to play bigger games 1 figure should be counted as 50 men, this will allow to treat one base with three figures as a full banner of cavalry.
Terrain scale: 1cm reflects about 10 paces (c. 7m) in reality. Of course this scale is for weapons ranges and movement and should not be considered in reference to the scale of figures.
