For the existing BKC gamers, you’ll probably want to know what’s changed in BKC-III?

Generally, this 3rd Edition remains true to the BKC you’re familiar with, but with a bit of a refresh on the text.  All of the core elements remain in the game and everything should run much the way it always has.  Things that you may find work slightly differently include:

Scale – Established at ‘1 base = 1 platoon’
Terrain (movement, visibility and cover) – Revamped and simplified in places.
Basic Actions – Now set out in defined actions list.
Unit Abilities (including profiles) – Revamped.
Command Units – Revamped and can now fight and be knocked out like other units.
Close Assault – Streamlined.
Off-table Support – Streamlined.
Engineering – Streamlined and moved to command phase.
Recce Actions – Streamlined.
Exceptions & Special Rules – Extracted into formal ‘special abilities’ for units.
Army Lists – Revamped and increased.

If you know and love Blitzkrieg Commander already then BKC-III should hopefully feel familiar but fresh to you.  For those new to these rules, grab yourself a copy and see what everyone is talking about!

For those who prefer their rules in a digital format, BKC-III will also be launched as a pdf download on Wargame Vault on the same day as Salute, so Sat 22nd April.  We’ll also have a range of 1000pt Starter armies ready for the launch, more details on those coming soon.
