In Her Majesty's Name Game



  









The game this evening was In Her Majesty's Name, in which I deployed the fiendishly fiendish Black Dragon Tong.as my chosen company. This turned out to be a good game with lots of dice rolling action and some expertly painted figures for the various factions, mine being borrowed from the impressive collection of the umpire.

The cardboard terrain was also pretty good, alongside some very neat custom made markers for the movement, shooting and mystical powers that the various factions employed. In the end, my Yeti was swiftly dispatched before it could make much of an impact, but my martial artists more than made up for it's premature exit. 

I'm not sure if this is my cup of tea but I did enjoy the game, thanks to the enthusiasm of the players and especially the umpire. I'm still contemplating the possibilities and may yet put together a small company of my own, perhaps some dinosaur hunters or the Hounds of the Baskervilles, but other things have my immediate attention at the moment.

  1. Nothing like playing a "fiendishly fiendish" force! Lovely figs and terrain. Looks like you achieved the main aims of any game: Fun!

  3. I don't usually like cardboard terrain but those free standing walls are excellent. Where did they come from?
