Nothing should get in the way of a good game!
Recently I finally acquired a hardcopy of Hordes of the Things from a good friend and was immediately beset by thoughts of epic campaigns, huge battles and creating army lists for the setting of the classic Lone Wolf gamebooks. I have wanted to refight the battle of Cetza for ages (see map below) and this has extended to thinking of army lists for each of the major nations (plus who hasn't read the books and wanted to field Banedon's flying ship in battle?!).
So, naturally this is all a bit ambitious at the moment, especially as my fund for figures lies at exactly zero right now. The side effect of this could be that the HotT rules get added to the pile and forgotten about, but no! I decided this was not good enough. Thus, with the help of the Junior General, I rapidly assembled generic good and evil fantasy armies.
Sure, it isn't the best looking game and I haven't even painted or flocked the bases yet, but a game is a game and Hordes of the Things deserves to be played!
