Task Force rulebook is ready for preorder



Task Force is a completely new level of By Fire and Sword games that was created by combining the best elements from Skirmish and Divisional levels and then developed with new rules

Task Force allows to play with much larger forces than in case of skirmishes. It also allows fielding units that until now were only available at Divisional level, such as Silahdar, Swedish pikemen, Transylvanian household infantry or medium artillery.

Despite increasing the number of figures thanks to introduction of Motivation Level the game on this level is very dynamic and enables a quick resolution of the battle, this makes Task Force a perfect tournament format.
The players receive a selection of 33 Task Forces. These include small and elite forces as well as those that seek advantage in numbers. They offer completely different tactical possibilities – from very offensive that include only cavalry to defensive that base their strength on artillery fire and massed ranks of infantry.


Book has 144 pages and it's hardcover.

Croatian Light Cavalry

Croatian Light Cavalry

Today we celebrate Santa Claus Day in Poland so it's time for some presents.

We have for you brand new unit for Imperial army - Croatian Light Cavalry.

It can be used in two new Skirmish Forces (one of them is also a regiment), one new Task Force and one new Division, so in ALL games level :)

You can download rules below.


Miniatures has been sculpted by Kamil Milaniuk and painted by Michał Cios. You can preorder them from today, packages will be sent early next week.


If you think that Croats (and southern border of Holy Roman Empire) should get more of our attention please let us know in comments (or even better order Croats :)). Michał 'Kadrinazi Paradowski has two more Skirmish Forces, one more Task Force, two more Divisions, and another units (foot Croats) ready, but we're sure he can do much more :)

And if you want to ask.. yes - both Skirmish Forces and Task Force are available in the Army Creator :)

Task Force Level rules


Task Force Level rules

As we have promised we have Task Force Level rules for you.

Please have in mind that it is Beta version of rules just to give you some preview what can you expect from the Task force rulebook which is scheduled for February/March 2018.

It will contain:

- much more Task Forces (at least 30-40)

- more scenarios

- more rules (for example Tactics you can buy before the battle same way as currently on Division level)

- obviously graphic will be improved (beta is only raw version)  We hope you'll like the rules. Feedback from the Polish players (and those of you who speak Polish or have Polish friends) is very good, but everything can be improved :)  We're looking forward for feedback from you as well.

Please read the rules carefully. There are differences between existing levels and Task Force level.  Even if name of the special rules is the same as on Skirmish level it may have different effect (like Swedish 'Small companies') ,

Many Thanks for Neil Mancer and Karl Erik Shanstrom for their help with English version.
