The Conquistadores are a bit dated for Napoleonic era gaming,

Umm, undead.  They don't have to be recently dead you know.

I've been thinking about setting Silver Bayonet in the Americas ... but then, isn't that basically what Dracula's America is albeit the time period is 60 years later?

Given the setting’s time difference and the specific political situation in Dracula’s America, as well as different game mechanics…. I think there is enough there to make a very different game. Otherwise WW 1 games and WW 2 Games may as well be considered the same thing.

The Napoleonic Era has its own unique flavor compared to the Victorian Era.

It is different to Dracula's America. In SB you have a party of Specialist soldiers, in DA you have a posse of gunfighters with a couple of specials, plus very different game mechanisms.

The Antediluviuan conquistadors are very definitely alive and well.  Their Aztecs, OTOH, are decidedly post-mortal.  Probably someone out there who makes undead conquistadors, though.

There are Antediluviuan Undead Conquistadors in the range, two packs of them. ;)

Excitedly waiting for my pre-order to come from Miniaturicum. Thank you Nick for working with them to help make things easier for us on the continent.

For anyone curious about why my enthusiasm is so high Silver Bayonet… it has to do with my own homebrew game idea I had just prior to finding out about the Silver Bayonet a year ago.

Although my idea was built on a foundation of Sharp Practice rather than Rangers of Shadow Deep.

I really want to see the Silver Bayonet do well, even though I realize  it is a small niche product,  because of the support it creates in convincing companies to come out with things like more cool new miniatures!

Mine arrived today from Miniaturicum here in Germany… excellent first impression. Very high quality, particularly the sculpts of the minis. I like the artwork in the book, however I will need more time to read and digest the rules before having a fair opinion of them.

It has been over a year of me eagerly awaiting the release of this project. I hope this is just the beginning and that we see the same kind of support Joe’s other games have had.

How do the official silver bayonet figures fit size wise with other ranges? As I like the figures but have other rule sets I like to play

Looks good. 

The gal with the broom seems underequipped for a fight at first, right up until she gives a whistle and her hut stalks out of the woods behind her.  :)
