Dear backers,

Many time you have asked us about rulebook in portable format and quite soon we'll be able to meet you demand. Below you can find link to download of BETA version.

Before we print this book we would like to get feedback from you. Please have in mind it's BETA version If there is anything unclear please let us know by posting on our forum.  

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  

We hope the book will meet your expectations.

Kingdom of Denmark and Norway - new army for BFaS


Army of the Kingdom of Denmark and Norway - new pdf to download

We proudly introduce new full-fledged army for "By Fire and Sword"- Kingdom of Denmark and Norway. So far you have chance only to try them a little bit playing Danish Skirmish in Scania in 1657, now - as we have promised - we can present you whole army.

It's the largest free pdf we have ever made. On the 33 pages you can find 3 Skirmishes and 4 Divisions as well as new regiments and units. We hope this supplement is worth waiting so long for publishing it and you'll like brave Danish who will be visiting your tables regularly.

Although this supplement is titled "army of Kingdom of Denmark and Norway", we focused only on troops from Denmark proper and its German provinces. In future we would like though to publish also troops from Norway.

New army list for BFaS : Swedish Home Defense at the border of Halland and Scania in 1657


Swedish Home Defense at the border of Halland and Scania in 1657

We proudly present you new army list for Kingdom of Sweden - Swedish Home Defense at the border of Halland and Scania in 1657.

You can download it here

It should be something very interesting for Swedish generals as this list definitely differs from other Swedish lists - you shouldn't expect lot of elite veteran units here...

This supplement presents only a part of the Swedish territorial defense, namely the units fighting against the Danes at the Halland-Scanian border. In the future we intend to cover also the Swedish forces fighting against the Norwegians as well as the Finns defending from the Muscovite attack.
