In Her Majesty's Name, 2nd Edition
« on: January 22, 2021, 11:51:58 AM »
Well everybody, the day we have worked towards for over 18 months has finally arrived. The book is at our printers in Lithuania!!

With luck, a fair wind, and the Baltic not freezing over, we should be able to release the book sometime in March through North Star (hardback) and SNMStuff (digital).

Over the coming weeks we shall be sharing pages from the book and information about the contents to keep you in the loop about what to expect. I shall update this thread, rather than starting new ones, to make it all easier to find.

To begin with here are the cover shots:

Looking forward to this. Do you know if North Star will re-release the miniature box sets?

Hi Rusty,

I don't think they will sell them as box stes, but the figures have remained available as their own VSF range, plus they sell the Artizan VSF range which are excellent too.

Two small announcements,

The first is that North Star Miniatures is now taking pre-orders for the book and has a number of limited time bundles.
You can find them here: https://www.northstarfigures.com/list.php?man=148&page=1

The second is that we have now released three documents to support the launch of IHMN2:
1. the in-game Reference sheet,
2. a five page pamphlet describing the key rules changes between the first and second editions, and
3. a twenty-seven page pamphlet that brings IHMN Gothic into line with the new edition.

You can find them here:
https://theministryofgentlemanlywarfare.wordpress.com/in-her-majestys-name/
Just scroll down to the bottom of the section on IHMN2.

You will note that this page also contains all the original supporting material for the first editions.

We hope that you find this information useful.

Another small announcement.

The books are currently on their way, possibly by Dirigible, from Lithuania to Nottingham (UK).
UK Customs willing, they will be North Star Miniatures by the end of the coming week.

As soon as they are confirmed as being in good condition, Nick and his team shall start shipping to customers, and Sean at SNM Stuff will begin releasing the digital version.

A rather larger set of announcements:
1. North Star are now shipping the pre-orders of the hardback book, but you still have time to get in on the pre-order deals if you sign-up before the end of Sunday.
2. On Monday the first of March, North Star are taking normal orders for the book.
3. Also SNMStuff will be selling the digital copy from Monday. We believe that they are going to do a Hard+Soft discounted bundle.

North Star: https://www.northstarfigures.com/list.php?man=148&page=1
SnMStuff: https://www.snmstuff.co.uk/product-category/wargames-rules/

Some have asked what is the difference between the first and second editiions and I think that this photos sums it up nicely:



From 64 pages to 196, dozens of shows, thousands of books sold, thousands of interactions with you the players. It has been quite a journey.

I will be picking up the PDF on Monday and then waiting for the book to hit distribution in NA.

Are the Companies going to be put back into distribution as well or will they remain an online exclusive?

As far as we understand it, North Star's company offer is time limited. However, all the original figures are available individually.

It is possible that Brigade Games in the US shall be setting up their own offers.
