Hello, I would like to start with By Fire and Sword. Several Youtube videos from 2017 mention a plan for two players starter set (Polish vs. Ottoman) but the starter didn't hit the shelves so far.

Is something like that still considered? Getting into BFAS is not easy and such starter would be great way how to begin. Thanks :)

You could just get couple of skirmish packs and the small rulebook. That would give you all you need to start out and give you the option of the armies you want. The skirmish sets are legal armies and you can learn the rules easily with the smaller forces. Just my 2 cents worth...

Regards, Bill

The BFaS starter set is featured in the 2018 catalogue. It is listed as a new product to be introduced this year. I have plenty to paint and keep busy with at the moment, but I would be excited to hear any news for this product.

Thanks for the information! I guess the Wargamer folks are quite busy with the Anno Domini 1666 Kickstarter right now. I hope they will bring new info later.

I'd love to see a PLC vs. Ottoman starter, since I want to play Ottomans and I have a buddy I want to get into it and he expressed interest in PLC.

So hopefully we'll hear from the WG crew with some more info before the end of the year on that!

iconWG stated they cannot release two player set before they switch to plastic horses.

That would make sense. A two player starter set of Poles vs Ottomans would be quite horse-heavy.
Switching in plastic horses could probably drop the weight by about 80%.
Might be a big factor for the US market. (Or anything going by post)
Would also help justify the plastic horses.
