I'm doing a series of videos for one of my favorite games, By Fire & Sword, mainly aimed at new gamers who may be interested in getting into the game.

Part 1 covers the various rulebooks and what tools you need to play the game. Next part will cover the army building aspects.

A lot more By Fire & Sword content can also be read over at my blog with over 140 entries under the tag "By Fire & Sword" http://anatolisgameroom.blogspot.se/sea ... nd%20Sword

Ditto. I discovered it in time for the first Kickstarter when looking for painting info on Soviet naval infantry. Glad to see you're still playing, was worried since there hadn't been a new BFAS post for over two years.

Fantastic blog and a great video. I still visit some of your older blog posts for painting inspiration.

Already looking forward to the next video!

Thank you for the kind words guys, really nice to hear and always serves as motivation to keep my blog going despite work putting a dent into my hobby time.

Second part of my series teaching you the historical wargame "By Fire & Sword". In part two I talk about how the army lists work on a skirmish and division level. I also take a quick look at the online army building tool.

Part 3 of my video series about the historical wargame By Fire & Sword. In part 3 I give you a general overview of the rules and the command, movement and combat phase. There are also some examples of game play situations and how combat is resolved.

I had a lot of trouble with this video, my camera messed up a large chunk in the middle of my material so I had to do what I could with the beginning and the end of my shooting session. I think this part could have been a bit better, but I hope to fix that in upcoming parts.

Many of the special rules will be explained in the next part where I talk about the different unit types and equipment rules.

As always, feel free to ask questions and give comments, I may include answers to those in future parts of this series.

Part 4 of my series about By Fire & Sword, this time I take a look at some of the common unit types and special rules that you will find in the game.

Next (and probably final part) will be about the scenarios, counting reconnaissance points, victory points and casualties in skirmish battles.
