Silver Bayonet - The Future?
« on: August 01, 2022, 01:05:13 AM »
It seems like the other games published by the same author had expansions in the pipe almost as soon as the corebook dropped. Frostgrave 2nd ed, Stargrave, and Oathmark all have supplemental books.

Is there anything in the cooker for Silver Bayonet?

I noticed that too. 

Silver Bayonet is way more interesting than Stargrave, and won more awards to boot.  lol

I have a feeling Osprey was not as confident with the sales numbers, and were slower to get on the expansion band wagon.  Maybe once Stargrave has runs its planned course, we will see some more?

From what I've seen, or rather not seen, it looks like it has died a death. The amount of postings about SB is much less than most other games from Osprey. The initial take up was good but with no immediate follow-up it may be hard to revive interest

I hope that the game finds a second wind, although I'm a bit dismayed at the drop-off in posts. I believe the chief lack is in scenarios. The ones in the book are all sort of samey, except for the solo ones. I'm thinking perhaps that a better sense of horror would be had by having side-by-side tables with each being a solo scenario - one unit versus the monsters - and each player runs their unit on one table and has carte blanche control of the monsters on the other.

I will be running a home-made scenario on Wednesday for my club, with British and French patrols entering a woods in the Vendee hunting to rescue/apprehend a British spy. Unbeknownst to the patrols, the woods contain lots of surprises - a hungry Ogre (aka hobgoblin), a group of Vendean rebels (bandits to the French but neutral to the British unless fired upon), and finally an octet of Goblins intent on making sure no humans make off with the Crown of the Goblin King which is concealed in a hawthorn bush next to the Stone Circle.

What about wynonna Earp Wild West themed with black powder pistol in modern times .
I fancied doing a monster blood tattoo themed sliver bayonet , with beastmen heads on kroot bodies for nicker  monsters.

I didn’t buy into the specific rules for SB, but man do I love the figures and the whole mashup idea.  It has become our RPG genre of choice. Now if I could just find more women in Napoleonic period garb!

Bad Squiddo, heads up!

The official page on FaceBook is still going strong with lots of activity.

Does the designer show any indication that there are more venues for updating information than Facebook, which many folks avoid on principle? The game is dead on TMP, dead on BGG, and on life support here - nor has there been a glimmer of anything other than the occasional figure release through official channels. I like the game very much and want it to stay alive, but they need to step up their game.

At the rate SG is coming out with material, it is clear that the writer's focus (and possibly their publisher's) is there.

I find the Silver Bayonet's rules to be much more interesting and innovative than Stargrave, but I also thought Ghost Archipelago was a better ruleset than Frostgrave.  Look which one is way more popular and you get an idea about what I know about people's interests!

Wargames Atlantic is currently designing a set of Napoleonic Camp followers which I suspect will be mostly, if not all, women. However, how long it will take to get into production is anyone's guess.

I have been advocating for that set for quite some time and was pleased to see it go from an April Fools joke to, at the very least, a production design.
