IN HER MAJESTY'S NAME first game test, and impression

 Had wanted a go with the new rules since I had a read on the game forums months ago got a pdf copy the day of release then hard copy at the store, my huge pulp VSF miniatures range ment i was able to smile at some of the  miniatures inthe book and companys you could devise, I spent a bit on a spred sheet to make them readable to me and decided a quick go on my  skirmish board and using my new MDF buildings, 200 pts aside
 Lord of light basically my  comic and  characters  from the past 50 years, 4 main character and the rest  are the chosen,
 Bad guys i picked the baisc military list and  shoved them as the  Silver Twilight, a Captain and a SGT with  6 rifle men
 The layout I picked the started sceanrio of 3  objectives to fight over, (3 young ladies)
 The silver twilight advance and find there closer than the   enemy

 The lord of light lead by Wolff race ino the town
 The Twilight get one young lady in ther clutches in the second turn and move  straight fo the next 2
 take postion to defend there prize

 The lord of light move to out flank the twilight but a rifle man has another young lady already
 shots are fired as the lord of light come into sight
 Miss Tye sword in hans runs to cut off the  escape route of the  twilight

 long range fire ensues in the town the twilights rifles make there mark
 A bloody gun battle  in the  road trying to save the young lady
 Although he was charges the silver twilight breaks free from combat with the swords woman
 The Captian grab's the final young lady while his rifle men cover him
 The  gunfight in the road ends with multiple bodies pistol and rifle fire dealing out death to both sides, a brave  gentlman  catches the young lady and  escorts her to safety
 Miss Tye  charges the  SGT who shots but misses  point blank enough to  make her miss her swep of her blade
 A brave ensign charges inot the frey as another  rifle men goes inot the melee with the lord of light  swords woman
 Pistols and blade close range leaves only the young Miss Tye standing
 The captian seeks to run for his life an officer blocking his path and the swords woman bearing down on him
 He makes a dodge and is away with his prize leaving the lord of light in control of the situation but  1 young  innocent lost
 finishing character cast
The Captain with his prize

What I learned, the rules work very well and i enjoyed the   interation and game stats  shooting is hard if you move at all a standing rifle man can pick off enemys easy, the rolls for  disengage and combat  are  good, I liked the ease of play and  the way it works as a whole. I will after this revise my character casts and  weapons etc and  maybee make my character s a bit stronger but i must say all suffered hits  but the pluck save is great...
Good game and what and more than I expected.....


  1. Nice AAR sounds good. I'm yet to have a go myself.

  2. Hi there,
    I've just posted a link on the IHMN blog to this excellent AAR.

  3. Excellent, we're gearing up for our first game here as well. Our terrain won't be quite as nice as yours, though. Heh.

  4. Nice battle report :) Those laser cut buildings are really sweet
