Honestly Oathmark means I'm not to worried about that it has very different mechanics from Frostgrave. Equally the engine should work reasonably well ad end up more like Rifles of Shadow Deep maybe.

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

So... where are the pictures of minis and talk of the rules of this game?



At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

The game is scheduled for end of October 2021, and we have no pics/rules/any info about minis. All we know is in OP.

OK, this could be one to watch.

It is nice to see Napoleonics getting the fantasy treatment, a nice break from the all too familiar medieval european aesthetic.

The objective of the game is to win. The point of the game is to have fun. The two should never be confused.

It is shown on the Northstar's FB so it is likely official one. Also there will be a different system than a Frostgrave one (no details given), and all official minis will be metal = small release compared to FG or Oathmark.

According to the NorthStar FB page they are currently taking photos of some of the 'official range' of figures. To go in their next newsletter I assume. I look forward to seeing them.

For some time now I have had a project I have been working on called Tarnished Splendor, a personal mash-up of 7th Sea and Sharp Practice for a Napoleonic Horror, Pulp Adventure Exploration... so when I heard about Silver Bayonet it sounded like just my kind of thing.

I am really looking forward to this!

Wave 1 pre-orders are now up for the game.



Northstar are handling in the UK but they also have US reps.

There was talk of a European store stocking but not found it yet.

Wave 1 consists of British (top right), French (bottom left) and Spanish (bottom right) forces. If you get the launch bundle then you also get an exclusive Veteran hunter and a free Hobgoblin. Pre-orders are discounted until the 18th / 19th depending on regions and then price goes up.

I think I saw mention that Wave 2 is Austria, Russia and America (last one I am uncertain on).

I ain't seeing much horror, or much that needs to be metal.

That would be miniaturicum.de

Gonna pass on the metals I think. They're okay but they're not the-price-of-60-plastics-from-Victrix okay. A lot of the promo shots also look outright goofy with "investigators" casually arranged around one out of place Frostgrave monster in broad daylight like neightborhood grannies having a chat while the grandkids kids play in the park.

Would be interresting to know a bit more about the rules first... They sell D10 in the preorder, so I guess this will not be the tried-and-tested Frostgrave system? And how will the scenarios and Solo/Coop work?
I'd expect the renessaince Troll to give a little overview in his blog, to drum up the hype

I would recommend watching the video I linked earlier. They talk about the combat. It sounds like Joe has tried to make melee feel different from ranged combat, slowed things down and made it less swingy.

There is not much about how adversarial or coop works in the video. Solo however sounds like Rangers of Shadowdeep.

Miniaturicum is offering the prelaunch deal those of us on the continent.

We ordered ours this morning. I can not adequately express just how excited I am.

I'm very excited for this, but I've barely touched my Stargrave miniatures as it is. So, I think as good a deal as the preorder bundle is, I'm going to play it cool and just get the book for now.

Not that I noticed. I would recommend getting in touch with them if you are after just the book. My understanding is that Michael at Miniaturicum is quite capable of dealing in English and open to discussing things.

Shadow Walker those look great, thanks for adding that photo to the thread.

I had hoped we would see some kind of plastic kits released for this title but I know that I was being over optimistic given the niche nature of the genre. Maybe something that would have been a good creature kit for this as well as the *grave series of games, ie werewolves, vampire thralls, etc.

Or, what would have been nice was for North Star to put out the Napoleonic female civilians that Wargames Atlantic made an April Fool joke out of. That would have nice.

Turns out MiniaturicuM has the book in the North Star section but not under the SB launch bundles.

Yeah they've good good customer service in English, I had them delay shipping on the Stargrave launch bundle as I was out of town.

I have not seen any expansion books mentioned anywhere. However I have heard a rumor of at least 3 waves of miniatures, with monsters and the additional nations being covered. But that information is just a rumor at this stage, I have not seen it confirmed by Nick or Joe.

I think I saw Nick confirm a second wave with the second set of factions was coming in December / January. Hopefully a monster themed wave / missing human characters will follow after.

Fingers crossed for an expansion or two will also follow. Joe has been very focused on solo / co-op recently so would be great to see a campaign expansion.

Who produces minis from that era in hard plastic, both soldiers and civilians? So far I know that WGA has some British soldiers sprues.
