Last weekend 20 gamers played 80 games of Hordes of Things, in both 15mm(40mm frontage) and 28mm(60mm frontage)scale

I have uploaded my pictures from last weekend's tournament to photo bucket, here is the link to the gallery: link
I recommend the slideshow option to see a decent size

Well done to Steve for a great weekend of gaming

Hard to imagine any tournament that would look more entertaining than a HOTT tournament. Super pics, and lots of great minis. I particularly like the dwarf stilt walkers.

Fantastic (to coin a term) stuff. A human mind is a terrible thing to turn to creating HOTT armies, who knows what will come out. Is there a list of the armies, so many I could not identify. I even loved the battlefield covers and element basing.

How did the new sneaker rules work out?

The dwarves on stilts army (shown in background) is a hoot!

Looks good – alas our house move to the area has not come off so I didn't make it along. Maybe next year (possibly – depends if the house purchase paperwork ever accelerates above its current glacial speed!!)

Nice Amazons – who is the manufacturer?

I don't know who made South American amazons (unless you mean the female elves above which are foundry). The Amazon rafts are a stronghold deployed in a swamp

The dwarf mine is a piece commissioned for the event by Dreamholme Scenics, which each competitor received.

The cherubs (flyers) are part of a Mid Summer Night's Dream army.

My own army are the elves dressed in turqouise, which are 18mm Chariot miniatures from Magistur Militum.

One army is based on the names of Rugby Union teams

The weeping angels army are those given away with a Dr Who magazine

I only had one game that included a sneaker and it didn't get much action. I think the consensus was favourable.

I had a game where the sneaker took on artillery and destroyed it. Definite result.
