New historical Skirmish Force - Swedish defense of Karelia in 1656

 

New historical Skirmish Force - Swedish defense of Karelia in 1656

We're happy to present to you today the winner in our Historical Skirmish Force competition.

Authors: Juha Heinänen and Samu Somppi have done an excellent job preparing description of the Swedes and Muscovites forces, fighting during the first summer of the Russo-Swedish war of 1656-1658 in Finland.

Both Swedes and Muscovites players should be very happy withthese forces. Swedes receive force with defensive skirmish rule and Muscovites are able to use – for the first time on the Skirmish level – units of dvorians and town streltsy as well and brand new and very interesting unit of the cossack boatmen.

We hope you will like both forces and we will see them during your battles. That's the best way you can express your appreciation for Juha and Samu's hard work! Also, we are waiting for pictures of both Skirmish Sets painted by you!

Of course, both forces will appear in our publicationArmies of By Fire and Sword”.

Historicon 2015 - summary

Historicon 2015  - summary

North America Announcement: Historicon 2015 was officially a success!

We knew we had a high bar set for us this year at Historicon, but we met and exceeded all of our expectations! The fans and the players were by far the most amazing part of the whole event! It was an honor to speak with all of you and the By Fire and Sword staff was electrified by the love of history, gaming, strategy and fun from the fans!

Thank you all again so much, to each and every one of you who came out to Historicon to spend time with us. We will definitely be at Historicon 2016 and will be releasing our US convention schedule soon!

We also want to send a special thanks to:

• Karl for his battle between the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth vs Cossacks, demos at our booth and most of all for allowing
players to use his amazing personal collection to experience the game firsthand during our biggest Historicon tournament ever!

• Scott for preparing and hosting the Battle of Vienna, which was a huge success and a talk of the show!

• Jeff for demos during the event.

• A very special thanks to all of the players who took part in our annual Historicon tournament, whether brand new or a veteran to the game, we truly appreciate your participation!

We have uploaded pictures from Historicon to our website - you may see them here

Special Figures' rules

Special Figures' rules

Today we would like to present you long time promised rules for Special Figures.

Special Figures are a bonus for "By Fire and Sword players". These figures cannot be bought, you may only receive them for participation in tournaments, competitions, our kickstarter campaigns and by promoting the game in other ways. Every Special Figure has its own rules. If you own a special figure you may use it at every official "By Fire and Sword" tournament. They are not game-breakers, those have been rather designed to add a little bit flavour to the battles

 

Deployment of a special figure does not increase the army’s FSP and it does not need to be included in the army list. At the Skirmish Level you may have one special figure and 2 for Division Level. The Figure may only be used painted and with a finished base (not necessarily like our “company” figures). Other miniatures can not be used as a proxy instead of Special Figures.

There are 5 Special Figures at this moment:

Messenger
Peasant informer
Cossack Witch (please don't expect „serious” rules!)
Captive
Peasant guide

You can download their rules here:
