I thought that you might like to see a few stats about IHMN.
Osprey and other outlets have sold over 5,000 copies of IHMN, over 2,000 copies of HVF and it must be close to just as many for SDRS. These numbers include several hundred e-book sales.
The first post on what later became the In Her Majesty’s Name sub-board of Lead Adventure Forums’ Victorian Science Fiction board was posted on February 17, 2013, by Nick Eyre of North Star Miniatures.
Since then there have been 7748 Posts on 829 different IHMN Topics. That is roughly one new topic and eight posts per day.
The IHMN Blog meanwhile has managed to produce 380 topics garnering 936 comments as well as uploading dozens of items of bonus material, fiction and fan-authored material. There have been 303,430 views by 60,124 visitors.
The IHMN Facebook page has had an unknown number of postings (I can’t find a stat’s option), but they must be in the hundreds and currently has over 830 members.
In the UK, IHMN has appeared at dozens of wargames shows, with the busiest display chap being the inestimable Mr. Dave Wise and his GCN crew, closely followed by the stalwart chaps of the White Hart Club. IHMN games have appeared in every Salute since 2013 and in 2014 had three independent games being run (one of which won the Bill Brewer award for best presented). We have had numerous reports of games being displayed at shows in the United States, Europe and Australasia.

So next time you mention IHMN and a gamer says “What’s that then?” you are entitled to sigh and say “Where have you been? Living under a rock?” 🙂
