Artificial grass mat

Heads up folks in the UK…
Lidl are currently selling a 1m x 2m ‘artificial grass mat’ for £5.99p. I have bought one and it is most excellent.

grass mat
It is basically a hard-wearing, variegated, dark grass-coloured carpet with non slip rubber dots on the back, and perfect for wargaming.

I am going to cut mine into two 1m squares for skirmish gaming, but two of these would make a 2m square table cover that you can roll up to store.

Moving forwards with Blood Eagle

The current rules cover the period from about 800CE to 1015CE, but because of the weapons and armour we have provided in the book can actually be stretched from 500CE to 1066CE.
To help players who want to be able to use the rules in the period 1066CE to 1350CE we have just uploaded a table to allow you to field figures in what we are calling ‘Reinforced Mail’.

Picture from the excellent “Arn – the last Templar”

This armour can include mail sleeves or leggings and, small plate reinforcements to shoulders and knee/elbow joints. The mail coif is now listed as being equivalent as a light helm.
None of this is cheap and should really be restricted to leaders, knights and the crusading orders.
The table can be found at the bottom of the Blood Eagle page.

The Order of the Lion, a new company for IHMN Gothic

“I feel the horror drenching every timber of this vessel. The crew were not merely killed, they were consumed. The devil has returned!”

Commander Dame Bess Balfour, aboard the Demeter in Whitby harbour.

With the many horrors spreading west from the accursed regions of eastern Europe who defends the shores of Albion? Who can face the spawn of the Prince of Wallachia and the Red Countess without flinching?

None other than the ancient and most noble Order of the Lion.

This is the first new company for IHMN Gothic and hope that you will enjoy holding back the darkness with it.

You can find it on the IHMN page in the new companies section.

Gothic is ready for preorder

We are pleased to announce that In Her Majesty’s Name Gothic is now available on preorder from the gentlemen at North Star, http://northstarfigures.com/prod.php?prod=9018

cover-front-300dpi

Within these pages, you shall find new weapons and equipment, talents and powers, and creatures both normal and supernatural. As well as a host of new companies to fight or, bring on, the darkness that threatens to engulf the Old World.

You will meet old enemies such as Vlad Tepes, Prince of Wallachia, and his nemesis Abraham van Helsing. Play the brave men of the Imperial Nightwatch as they test their modern might against the terrifying vampire minions of the immortal Countess Bathory. Rouse the Village mob to drive out Baron Viktor von Frankenstein and his abominations. Tread the corridors of power as a member of the Illuminati or, join the Gypsies to hunt Werewolves under the full moon. Witness Sampson Caine and the Nuns of the Order of the Bringer of Salvation defend the innocent from the predations of the Dread Monks of Sucevita. Unleash the Unborn upon the terrible White Slavers. You can also upgrade and test your existing IHMN companies against these many terrors.

New scenarios and landscapes will take your companies into dark forests, mist shrouded castles, ancient ruins, pagan altars and grim, fortified villages the length and breadth of Transylvania, Wallachia and the ever-forbidding Carpathian Mountains.

This is classic Victorian Gothic Horror at its grisly, horripilating best. It is not recommended for ladies and gentlemen of a nervous disposition, for the darkness will feed upon their terror.

It is expected that the book will be ready to despatch by North Star in early March 2017.

Special news just in

To celebrate the long-awaited release of IHMN Gothic, North Star have put the original IHMN range on sale, and re-released the much sought-after five special figures for sale until the book is with them.
So you have two weeks to get them folks!

A fine fellow over on the Lead Adventures IHMN board has asked for an explanation of the 4Ground IHMN counters sold by North Star Miniatures (https://northstarfigures.com/prod.php?prod=7787).

As you can see they can come in very useful for reminding one of what one’s chaps have been up to 🙂
