Wargamer have added some new kits to their selection of By Fire & Sword products for this month. Kicking things off we have a look at the Swedish Skirmish Set which gives you a force ready to take to the table. See what you think of what’s inside…
Swedish Skirmish Set
Here we have the set below which comes with a whole lot bunch of mounted Dragoons and some Dragoons on foot as well. This looks like it’s a heavily mobile fighting force with the cannon there to cover them when needed.
You also get the command figures for the game with a Colonel, Standard Bearer and Musician to keep everyone on the field of battle. I think these sets look great and I can see the appeal of massed cavalry thundering across the tabletop.
Brandenburgian High Command
Next up we have the Brandenburgian High Command who are flying a whole lot of banners. In here you get Generals, Colonels, Musicians, Standard Bearers and plenty of retainers too.
If you’re going to be heading up a big force then I reckon this is well worth adding to your collection. I really like how the banners look fluttering from these units and I can imagine how impressive that would be on a large scale.
Cossack Wagon Train
If you’re looking for something to protect on the road (or indeed raid) then how about this Cossack Wagon Train? I could see this being great for objective based scenarios.
This also comes with the Cossack Camp Master which you can also get separately as a limited edition piece. Will you be raiding or saving?
Last but not least we have the Azabs with Polearms which are an additional support unit for your army.
I can imagine those polearms are quite handy when everyone is riding around on horses. Always useful to have a weapon which can take out a horse or knock a rider from his saddle.
Which sets will you be considering?
