Book Description

20 Nov 2013 Osprey Wargames
It is 1895 and the future depends not upon the actions of governments but upon those of the Adventuring Companies, and will be shaped by countless engagements in city streets, ancient ruins, dense jungles, high mountains and boundless deserts. In America, good men fight to preserve their hard-won liberty and the great drive west is stalled by Native American mystics and powerful outlaw gangs. In Africa, native forces fight to push back the Pax Britannica no longer is a Lee-Metford rifle and a disciplined resolve enough to put the foe to flight. In Europe, darkness gathers around the Austro-Hungarian court and the Great Powers watch warily, knowing its fall could precipitate a war to end all wars. Heroes, Villains and Fiends presents new Companies, from the rebellious Zulu and Apache to the spies of the Okhrana and Secret Service, and the mysterious forces of such groups as the Knights Templar and the sinister Hellfire Club. With equipment, Talents and Mystical Powers, additional scenarios and a sample campaign, Heroes, Villains and Fiends opens up new possibilities for In Her Majesty's Name. This supplement for In Her Majesty s Name has been produced due to popular demand. Please note that it is a short-run, non-illustrated black and white volume, packed full of new Company lists, new rules and options to expand and enhance your games.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heroes, Villains and Fiends (Osprey Wargames) 11 Jan 2014
By Sam
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this with the main rulebook - In Her Majesty's Name, and have found it adds extra detail to the rules, although I have not played a game yet. This book adds rules for swimming, as well as extra companies (the bands of characters in the game), it also adds a bestiary of both real and fantasy creatures.

So I highly recommend this in combination with the main rules. I haven't given a 5 star review as without playing the game I would find it a bit of a contentious point to say absolutely go for it.

Of course, they may be differing opinions to me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to the series 9 Jan 2014
By Scott Mosher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very nice addition to this series and offers sets of new Companies broken down to three regions (Europe, No. America, Africa). This shows how varied this game can be and the kinds of options open to other designers and creative players. It also expands a bit on weapons, vehicles, mystic powers... and adds more locations and difficulties for playing. Gives a backward compatibility chart to book one so no one is left in the cold.
No pictures at all in this one, which is a little disappointing, but the content is chock full!

Supplement add depth/layers to original IHMN rules. The North American companies for the game (Apache, Mexican Rebels, etc.) fit my plans for playing the game.
