Wooden Sword

I found this very nice Wooden Sword Ruler at a local shop, got both cm and inch, all you need as a wargamer and I´m sure it will improve my wargaming experience very much:)


I used it for the first time during a Baltic Crusade game with Jonas the other day, more about that in a upcomming AAR, just have to fix the pictures and write it...


13th Century, Somewhere in Karelia...Both the Swedes and the Novgorodians have been out harassed the poor locals and bump in to each other by a frozen river...but it is spring in the air so the ice arn´t that safe...

More to follow...

  1. Looking forward to this AAR considering my forthcoming Baltic Crusades project with Dux Bellorum. I also ordered the 'Kingdom of Heaven' sourcebook to give me more background info for the period. Happy Days:)

  7. Good looking sword and a useful tool for hitting other wargamers during the game for infringements!
