There are plenty of plastic kits, so a sprue with more exotic heads, arms and accessory bits might be the way to go.  :)

Yes, conversion bits would be mighty handy.  I'm looking at some Tyrolean figures right now and seeing that the female figures especially will be needing haversacks and cartridge pouches at the very least.

All the weaponry options would be great to have on sprue.  There are some bits that can be chopped off figures in a Victrix box, but pistols and other hand weapons are in quite short supply.  Carbines and a volley gun would be great.  A double-barrelled flintlock shotgun would be superb (even if it's not in the rules yet — I've got a pencil).

There are a few dismounted dragoons out there in metal; but otherwise, dismounted cavalry are quite lacking.  A Hussar and Lancer sprue with a few head options (including female!) would be pretty universal.

Wave 2 will be Units of Russians, Prussians and Austrians.
Wave 3 will be monsters.
Wave 4...not sure, depends on popularity and demand.

I would love for this game to become wildly popular so that we could get all kinds of cool releases but I suspect this will be a rather narrow niche product. What we need is a new Sharpe movie to come out… one where he has to track down a werewolf. Yeah. That would do the trick. A Sean Bean movie where he gets to live.

Does Silver Bayonet include rules for mounted figures? This release has tempted me to try painting some Napoleonic figures for the first time and I now quite fancy having a go at some cavalry while I wait for the book to arrive.

It does. You have to have the rider ability, and it's the Cavalrymen Soldier types that have that, not the rest. i think your Officer can be mounted as well.

Excellent, thanks Nick. The door to even more temptation has opened...
