By Fire & Sword: Task Force + Hetman Janusz Radziwiłł (RUL-15)
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.
Please also remember that ALL published Skirmish Forces as well as Task Forces will are available in our free Army Creator
