Regimentarz Olbracht

Regimentarz Olbracht

As some of you probably know, rank on our official forum doesn't depend on numbers of your posts but rather on how actively you participate in "By Fire and Sword" life.

Your rank can be changed by attending official tournaments, publishing interesting and high-quality materials (battle reports, articles), and by organizing tournaments or other "By Fire and Sword" events.

You start your adventure on the forum as "Camp follower", and finish as "Regimentarz" (it's a high rank commander in Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth army).

We are thrilled to announce that on of the first players has reached Regimentarz rank. It's famous and well-liked Jacek "Olbracht" Niewęgłowski, veteran of dozens of tournaments (and winner of many). Its's worth mentioning that Jacek is not only great and fair player, but also a "helping hand" to beginners.

As we promised 3 years ago we decided to honor Jacek - as first Regimentarz ever - with something special.

Jacek will get special t-shirt with a portrait. Our artist,Tomasz Tworek, well-know to all, as an author of fantastic illustrations from "The Deluge" portrayed Jacek as 17th century nobleman.The portrait's similarity to its "original" is really amazing! We assure you that Jacek smiles sometimes during his battles.

 

Congratulations for our Regimentarz. We wish him more success.

All players who want to join our ranking on our forum, please send PM to user "Glorfindel". He will register you (it's not automatic). We'll also publish on our forum rules of achieving points and how to be promoted to higher ranks.

‘Armies of By Fire and Sword. Volume I’ approach!

‘Armies of By Fire and Sword. Volume I’ approach!

Our progress on the announced ‘Armies of By Fire and Sword’ is so advanced, that we decided to share with You the contents:




Royal City of Gdańsk – 2x Skirmish + 2x Divisions
Courland

Old (already available in Polish, some of them in English, all of them more or less modified) skirmish groups:

Gosiewski’s Foray (Lithuania)
Cossacks from Ovruch’s pulk
Muscovite Skirmish from Khovansky’s division in 1661
Haji Gerey Skirmish (for both Turks and Tartars)
Swedish Skirmish near Tykocin in 1656
Lithuanian Skirmish under Michał Obuchowicz in 1660
Karelia in 1656: Swedes and Muscovites

New skirmish groups:


Cossacks and Tartars Skirmish group -  August of 1651

3x Noble levy skirmish groups 1646-1660

Old divisions (all currently available in English):


- Tugay Bey (Tartars)

- Ivan Khovansky, 1660 (Muscovites)
- Robert Douglas in Courland, 1658-59 (Swedes)
- Cossack division from Autumn 1648
- Hussein Pasha at Khotin, 1672 (Turks)

- Allied division at Ładyżyn – 18th of July 1672 (Cossacks, Tartars and Turks)

Miscellaneous:


- Polish pułk of lanowa infantry from voivodship of Sandomierz in 1655
- Imperial cuirassier regiment of Caprara
- Cossack camp-master
- Turkish ‘czaus’ (sultan’s messenger)
- Polish  and Lithuanian volunteers and partisans’ commanders

Note: the table of contents is not final; it will definitely expand, not shrink. We show skirmishes and divisions being grouped as “old” and “new” to make it easier for you to spot the new ones. It will be presented in the book in slightly different manner.

You may notice that there are some currently available pdfs that are missing here: Danes, Swedes from border of Halland and Scania, ‘The Invincibles’, Czarniecki’s division and Piaseczyński’s regiment. The reason is very simple – they will be published as a part of  another book, which will focus on war in Denmark and Swedish Pomerania. Our reliable Michał ‘Kadrinazi’ Paradowski gathered plenty of materials and it’s already working on it. We want to assure you that it will be worth a wait, even if You don’t play brave Danes.

Anticipating the question – the release date of the publication has not been determined yet.
As of the release date for the “Armies of By Fire and Sword” – we aim for December 2015. For the first time in history of BFaS we would like to publish both Polish and English versions at the same time
