Tool Bench Hardware Painters Tape

Why do wargamers need painters tape, and is the dollar-store variety good enough?

So another month and another challenge, this one was suggested by Simon "Blaxcleric" Moore and involves…you guessed it HOTT or "Hoards of the Things". HOTT is a set of multiscale wargames rules published by the "Wargames Research Group" back at the start of the century (doesn't that sound weird, when referring to twenty years ago!), the great thing about these rules is the fact that the armies involved are small and so relatively cheap (and as you all know I am cheap!!), this also means it should be perfectly possible to complete one of said armies in a month, and that is the challenge, complete one 24point (the standard starter army points cost) HOTT army in any scale in the month of September (or Hott'ember, clever eh? No? Well suit yourselves!).

If anyone out there is interested in taking part, or just see how we get along please follow the blog links below….


Thanks for reading, cheers Roger.

Interesting idea.

I've just slid down to the One Hour Wargaming rules as my minds not 100% at the mo but had planned to go to Recon near Leeds to see if I could learn HOTTbut something seems to be stopping me at the moment :-0

I shall have a read…

Hi Andrew, the HOTTT rules are pretty simple, once you get into the mindset of "PIP's and Paces" if you wanted to join in you'd be more than welcome.

I too am missing the shows!

Cheers Roger.

It's not about dragons competing for most gold.

Sadly not, could do with some gold tbh.

Cheers Roger.

Also there are some nice historical versions of HOTT for WW1 and Colonials.

I would imagine they would count too if anyone wanted to take part painting one of them.

We're a pretty easy going bunch you know.
