By Fire and Sword - Rulebook (2013)

By Fire and Sword recreates the 17th century wars fought by the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth against Turkey, Muscovy, Sweden, Crimean Khanate and Cossacks. The period between 1640 and 1676, on which the game focuses, is a time of almost constant warfare waged by the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth on all fronts, in many cases with several enemies at the same time.

The rulebook includes:

  • Richly Illustrated rules with numerous diagrams and examples
  • Painting and modelling guide which shows how to prepare wargame figures
  • Scenarios for skirmishes and larger battles
  • Numerous illstrations by the best Polish artists
  • Photographs of 17th Century reenactment groups
  • The first supplement for the game "By Fire and Sword - Republic in Flames (1648 - 1676)", which includes historical materials, unit characteristics and army lists for the following factions:
    • Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth
    • Cossacks

    • Crimean Khanate
    • Ottoman Empire
    • Muscovy
