Blitzkrieg Commander II (2nd Edition)

Blitzkrieg Commander II is an exciting wargame that allows you to re-create battles of the Second World War and Spanish Civil War using miniatures on a tabletop. Command anything from a company right up to a division and get a result in 2-3 hours without becoming bogged-down in detail. Suitable for any scale miniatures from 2mm right up to 28mm (including 6mm, 1/285, 10mm, 12mm, N Scale, 15mm and 20mm) and no re-basing required.  First launched in 2004, this 2nd Edition was released in 2007.  3rd Edition was released in April 2017 and is available here on Wargame Vault.

The rules come as a 140-page pdf with over 50 pictures that illustrate how to play the game. These feature real miniatures as you see them on the gaming table not diagrams that belong in a physics textbook!  You also get a double-sided A4-sized quick reference sheet.  This version the game contains the ammendments from BKC-I.

The game can be played at one of two levels: 1 base = 1 Platoon (the scale the game was designed for) or 1 base = 1 Squad or Individual Vehicle. The ground scale is 1cm = 20m or 1cm = 10m respectively. One turn represents up to 30 minutes of real-life action.

  • command system that emphasizes the fog of war in a simple but effective manner
  • the same mechanism for casualty resolution throughout

Like the rules, shame the PDF is black and white and missing the cover.
It's a great option to have black and white (for printing), but would be nice to have a colour option to appreciate the photographs.

Hi Stewart,

Thanks for the comment, glad you like them! I'll look into the missing cover as the file is there and should be included in the download. We'll have a look at offering colour versions as well when we get the next edition finished.

Let me know if we can help with anything.

I really like this game and it is becoming a go to for our 6mm World War 2 combat. We are considering getting into Cold War Commander and Future War Commander.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
