We proudly announce that the premiere of the latest version of the BFnS rulebook  - "By Fire and Sword rulebook. Gamer's edition" is scheduled for the end of February.

We'll be ready to send packages starting from 27th of February. However we'll have advance copies in limited number (100) at Hamburger Tactica, 24-25.02

In USA books should be available about 7th-8th of March.

We have prepared a special deal for you to let you get this book for free - details in a 15 minutes.

As you probably know decided to publish rules in small, portable format (B5, 160 pages).

You will find there all the rules needed to understand the game such as, how does the game play at the basic level – Skirmish, which is the level dedicated to novice players – without having to browse descriptions of all the factions and their units, army lists and special rules. By placing the special rules, statistics of units, and cards for each skirmish force being on sale in the internet:

it will make it easier to start the adventure with our game.

Please also remember that ALL published Skirmish Forces as well as Task Forces will are available in our free Army Creator

http://ac.fireandsword.wargamer.pl/

By the way of this release, we have decided to add necessary additions and clarifications of the rules of the game. These are still the same rules as in previous editions of rulebooks. But since their publication, along with a whole bunch of new players, at the same time their new questions and interpretations, we've decided to refine some of the entries and also fix some minor bugs or omissions. As a result, to make the reading easier for "old" players, we’ve introduced the "!" symbol on the margins of pages – meaning that you need to pay special attention to the rule as it is new, improved or changing an important element in the game. At the end of the book we also added some additional quick references.

Starting from March, we'll start publishing faction rulebooks for Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Kingdom of Sweden, Ottoman  Empire, Cossacks & Tartars and Muscovites. Rest of armies will still use current rulebooks.

I'm doing a series of videos for one of my favorite games, By Fire & Sword, mainly aimed at new gamers who may be interested in getting into the game.

Part 1 covers the various rulebooks and what tools you need to play the game. Next part will cover the army building aspects.

A lot more By Fire & Sword content can also be read over at my blog with over 140 entries under the tag "By Fire & Sword" http://anatolisgameroom.blogspot.se/search/label/By%20Fire%20and%20Sword

Thank you for the kind words guys, really nice to hear and always serves as motivation to keep my blog going despite work putting a dent into my hobby time.

Second part of my series teaching you the historical wargame "By Fire & Sword". In part two I talk about how the army lists work on a skirmish and division level. I also take a quick look at the online army building tool.

Teil 3
Zitat von: Anatoli
Part 3 of my video series about the historical wargame By Fire & Sword. In part 3 I give you a general overview of the rules and the command, movement and combat phase. There are also some examples of game play situations and how combat is resolved.

I had a lot of trouble with this video, my camera messed up a large chunk in the middle of my material so I had to do what I could with the beginning and the end of my shooting session. I think this part could have been a bit better, but I hope to fix that in upcoming parts.

Many of the special rules will be explained in the next part where I talk about the different unit types and equipment rules.

As always, feel free to ask questions and give comments, I may include answers to those in future parts of this series.

Part 4 of my series about By Fire & Sword, this time I take a look at some of the common unit types and special rules that you will find in the game.

Next (and probably final part) will be about the scenarios, counting reconnaissance points, victory points and casualties in skirmish battles.
