Task Force rulebook ready for preorder

Task Force is a completely new level of By Fire and Sword games that was created by combining the best elements from Skirmish and Divisional levels and then developed with new rules

Task Force allows to play with much larger forces than in case of skirmishes. It also allows fielding units that until now were only available at Divisional level, such as Silahdar, Swedish pikemen, Transylvanian household infantry or medium artillery.

Despite increasing the number of figures thanks to introduction of Motivation Level the game on this level is very dynamic and enables a quick resolution of the battle, this makes Task Force a perfect tournament format.
The players receive a selection of 33 Task Forces. These include small and elite forces as well as those that seek advantage in numbers. They offer completely different tactical possibilities – from very offensive that include only cavalry to defensive that base their strength on artillery fire and massed ranks of infantry.


Book has 144 pages and it's hardcover.

Do you need the Players Edition Rule Book to play the game or are all the rules included in the Task Force book?

They are, but not all Task forces will be available from the beginning - WG will be adding them later... (as it is a hell lot of work, I suppose).

Looks like Caliver Books are stocking them too now, although the Task Force book isn't listed.
