Does the weapon trait bayonet mean that a bayonet comes with the rifle or must it be purchased separately?

The Bayonet still gets purchased separately, but the Weapon Trait means that the weapon can attach to a Longarm and get the rules for a Spear.  The Bayonet itself can be affixed to an available weapon, or it can be used as a Knife is so desired.

Greetings all!  I wanted to give an update on where things are with the game.

As we head into the Memorial Day weekend here in the U.S. things are full swing on the Fantasy supplement play test.  This is a massive project that will likely alter the way people play fantasy skirmish games hence forth.
We're taking the "Tool box for the Imagination" concept Anatoli coined to the next level.

In addition to that, I plan on finally getting a battle report done for the game and posted on the site in the next two weeks. 

We are also looking into doing short videos that show game play.  I also will do a write up on an entire Turn sequence to grant some insight into the game play. 

Finally, in the next month I will start a column called 'Take Aim' that will dive into one or two aspects of the rules in greater detail.

Lot's to do, and Guilder to blame for it.  I'm swamped.   Laugh

Noch Weiter!

Quick question! Will the future fantasy and Scifi additions be full on books with the rules included or straight add ons?

Cheers!

The supplements will be full color with art, pictures of miniatures, and our diagrams.  They will be separate books that will need the main rule set to use.  I will have bundle deals of the main BoB rulebook and the supplements as they release on Wargame Vault.

Currently I'm working on getting the print copy lined up with One Bookshelf's system to bundle a print copy and a discounted pdf.

Well, I just purchased the pdf and found out I missed the sale! FUDGE!

From what I have read, I think this will be my primary skirmish set!

It's a great set of rules! I'm pretty happy with it.

Though I have to admit I'm looking forward to the fantasy and sci fi stuff... not much of a historical gamer, but I like that it's flexible enough to use for multiple settings.

Thanks for your business Capn!  I'm glad to hear you see the value.  Smiley

@ Black Sheep - I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with what we have in the pipeline for the Fantasy supplement.  In the mean time you can use the Sci-Fi download to approximate your current Sci-Fi armies/milieu.

If all goes well I'll be having another VBCW Brink of Battle skirmish tomorrow, so expect an AAR soon!

Being a bit low on brain cells, I've struggled a little with building my force composition*, so maybe some sample lists for each era might be useful?

*I'm doing a 500SP elite force with two veterans - do I really have to spend no less than 50% / 250SPs on the SPs on them?

Sounds great! Can't wait to read your report.  Yes, Elites are just that, Elites and you must purchase more of the Veterans than any other type.  If you only want 2 Veterans, go with the Standard Org and you'll have a better point allocation between Troopers and Vets.  Unless you want to tweak the rules, but then I can't vouch for the results!  Cheesy

The Standard Force Organization is really the most used and balance type of group.  It gives a decent points allocation between senior members like your Commander and Veterans, and the Troopers.  You can have 0-3 Veterans in that org, and you can spend up to 30% of your points on them combined.  No minimums as you aren't required to have them like an elite Force is.

Fair enough!

Well we had a great game - a bit of a slugfest but still enjoyable.

I'll do my write up when I get time in the next few days, but in the meantime my opponent Giles has blogged his side of the story here - http://hasturhasturhastur.wordpress.com/2012/06/15/avbcw-skirmish-battle-brink-of-battle/

Sweet!  Can't wait read your BatRep. 

One note, the Ranger Trait is a big deal in any game.  The ability to treat Difficult Ground like Woods, Ruins, Obstacles like hedges, etc as Open Ground with no movement restrictions is a game changer most of the time.

It will probably become more apparent the more games you play.  Period 3 is a whole different type of game than from previous periods because Firearms in that era really chew up troops.

One other note, I'll have to flog WebOgre who was looking into an Army Builder type build file for creating BoB forces.  I think I'll shout out to the BoB community and see if anyone is game for that.

Thanks JP!
