A Lost World for In Her Majesty's Name



I've been doing some work on my Lost World for In Her Majesty's Name. It's very much a work-in-progress but the general idea is because The Lost World setting is small and self-contained you don't need to bother with Companies. Instead, you choose from a list of Lost World 'good guys' and 'bad guys' for each particular scenario with, perhaps, the addition of some Lost World beasties for random encounters. You just need to settle on a points limit and a scenario.

So far I've finished Lord Blackwood's Expedition and their Lost World Allies (the 'good guys') and the Lost World Bestiary (random encounters and/or 'bad guys'). That just leaves Enemies in the Lost World (the 'bad guys') and some background to flesh out. That'll have to wait until the 'bad guy' minis are done which should be in a month or so. Anyway, here's what I have so far...

Here's a Dropbox link to a PDF of the above so you can download it all and use it if you want.

[Edit 25/5/15 - You can get the PDF of the now finished Lost World including the evil Atlanteans and Cannibal Tribes on Dropbox or Google Drive. Enjoy!]

[Edit 05/12/15 - PDF (links above) now updated to include The Lemurians and some Lost World Survivors.]

The figures are a mix of Foundry and Lucid Eye along with a North Star Tea Time figure. All miniatures were painted by the inimitable Matt Slade! The T-Rex is a Papo kid's toy. The scenery is mainly aquarium stuff except for the tents which are from Renedra.
