Thoughts on Sleeping Dragon, Rising Sun (IHMN)
I particularly like the Royal Navy Landing Party which is a very different take to my own Armoured Naval Landing Parties (which one may find at this blog). Mine were designed to be heavily armed parties landed from capital ships, while these ones are more ad-hoc gunboats crews at the ready to storm ashore.
On the down side, I think the addition of some colour artwork and pics of new figs would help fire the imagination but this was clearly a deliberate decision to maximise the written content (as seen here). However, you certainly can't complain about the amount of great written content that was packed in instead.
[EDIT: Author Craig Cartmell has subsequently advised me that they didn't have any choice about the artwork, so I think they made the best of it by adding more written content instead]
Overall, if you are into IHMN this is a must get addition to your collection.
