BlitzkriegCommander is a tabletop wargame designed to re-create battles of the Second World War and the Spanish Civil War using miniatures. It is published by Specialist Military Publishing who also publish Cold War Commander and Future War Commander.

BlitzkriegCommander game play[edit]

Players can command units ranging from a company up to a division. A typical game lasts 2 or 3 hours.

BlitzkriegCommander is derived from the Warmaster family of rules and uses activation rolls to simulate command and control.[1] Commanders can activate a single unit (or group of units) multiple times in a single turn, but each attempt is at an increasing penalty. This compels players to weigh carefully the risk and reward of each decision (e.g., should I move into firing position—which exposes my unit to fire if I fail the next activation roll—or should I wait in cover?).

Combat is resolved with one or two dice rolls, but differs from Warmaster and Warmaster Ancients in that combat is most often ranged.

Blitzkrieg Commander contains a collection of army lists, allowing players to fight any engagement of the Spanish Civil War or Second World War. There are no specified basing or miniature scale requirements.
