In The Emperor’s Name

Rules Sci Fi

The Forge of War Development Group offers In The Emperor’s Name. From the website:

Have you ever wished to play a bold Imperial Inquisitor facing down the enemies of man with a brave retinue of warriors around you? Or perhaps lead a sinister coven of chaos cultists in an effort to undermine the deluded followers of the Corpse-Emperor?

The Forge of War Development Group are proud to announce the release of their newest rules: In The Emperor’s Name. A skirmish game where each player plays a Hero or Villain with his or her Retinue of five to ten figures. Like many of our games the rules of play are simple and concise, but with enough detail to give a fun evening’s gaming.

Within the game are a full set of rules for scenarios, solo campaigning and lists for using:
The Servants of the Emperor, an Inquisitor and his retinue.
The Enemies of Man, a Chaos Agent and his foul followers.
The Adeptus Astartes, including all the famous Chapters.
The Ecclesiarchy, including the Martial Sisterhoods.
The Imperial Guard, in all its glory. Now you can be Commissar Gaunt or Col. Schaeefer on a do-or-die mission.
Ordo-based Inquisitor Retinues, for those who hanker after being a hunter of Witches, Xenos or Daemons.
The Adeptus Arbites, the watchmen of the Imperium.
An Imperial Navy Landing Party, for those who wish to cry ‘Avast Ye Lubbers!’
A Rogue Trader and his crew of mercenaries and misfits.
The Traitor Legions, including each of its foul legions.
A Blood Pact Death Brigade infiltration team.
A Blood Axe Ork Warband, ready to unleash havoc across the Imperium.
The Genestealer cult, complete with Patriarch, Magus and Hybrids.
A Tau Incursion Team, fighting for the Greater Good.
A Squat Brotherhood, lost but never forgotten.
Retinue lists for other forces are in the process of being prepared, as are various scenarios and campaigns.

About the Miniature Wargaming Hobby

Miniature Wargaming is part of the "adventure games" hobby, which includes r ole p laying and board games. Wargamers recreate battles on the tabletop with toy soldiers, like a more complicated game of chess. Models range in height from 6mm to 28mm tall, with 15mm and 25mm being the most popular. There also is a growing interest in toy soldiers and military models, such as the 1/32 and 1/35 scale plastic soldiers from Conte, and Marx.

The most popular miniature wargames are fantasy and science fiction based, such as Warhammer, Warhammer 40K, Warmachine and The Lord of the Rings. World War II games such as Flames of War and Axis and Allies are new favorites. Other favorite historical periods include Napoleonics, the American Civil War, and ancients, such as Romans or Greeks. Other gamers enjoy miniature naval wargames, recreating battles like Trafalgar, Jutland and the Coral Sea.

Hobbyists research historical periods and paint their tiny soldiers in accurate uniforms. Others develop "historically realistic" rules sets or build scale battlefield terrain using model railroad techniques.

For pictures, visit the gallery.

Some of the bigger hobby companies are Games Workshop, which produces Warhammer, Wargames Foundry and Old Glory Miniatures. Wizards of the Coast produces several lines of pre-painted miniatures games, such as the Star Wars and Dungeons and Dragons miniatures games, and a historical game with pre-painted miniatures: The new Axis and Allies game. Wizkids produces a fantasy collectable miniatures game, such as the Mage Knight and Heroclick fantasy games, the science fiction games MechWarrior and Rocketmen, as well as the quasi-historical Pirates of the Spanish Main.
