Hi Evryone,

I've been battling the next stage of my Hyboria campaign using HOTT as the rules. This battle was Zamora vs Corinthia. Zamora had an evil sorcerer with a host of spider-demons and Corinthia a beautiful priestess cleric and, as usual, a head-strong Conan.Mix in with this a bunch of mercenary knights from Nemedia who just don't know the meaning of stand firm and fanatic warband from Kush who just want to have a go at the steadfast Corinthian hoplites and you have a good battle with plenty of action. The game was played with 25mm figures most of which were Garrison and Minifigs.

HOTT really gives a good mass battle feel to a game and half the pleasure, or pain, is to try out new elements, such as clerics and artillery. Here are a few pictures of the battle and you can see it all on the blog.




Hope you all enjoy the battle. Comments and crits welcome.

You have crabgrass wink

Interesting match-up of two very different armies, and great write-up. Thanks!

I may be biased, but I always like to see Old School Ancients.

Nice to see these in action I love HotT and double-sized armies for Hyboria!

Nice. You are one of the people who have inspired me to make my own 25mm DBA/HOTT Hyborean Age armies, but I will be using modern figs.

You can never go wrong with HotT!

I'll second that – YOU CANNOT GO WRONG WITH HotT!

Thanks Everyone for the great feedback. HOTT continues to get me thinking about match-ups when it comes to building forces. Recently I've been using randon terrain placement and starting points for the armies and who is the defender. This has meant that the point system has been tempered by actually having to consider which side is defending or attacking and that gives a lot of pause for thought.

Terrement I guess my grass needs tending a little. In a perfect world my terrain would be better, but how to stop warpage is a subject in itself. They were two very different armies. Could the warband quick-kill the spears? Not today but it could happen.

Rob, always pleased to hear positive things from you. You supplied half my armies after all when I had lost hope of seeing another way of getting the S&S range again. BTW there are more Ral Partha and Hinchcliffe in the armies for this battle.

79th, glad I have given you some ideas to get into Hyboria. The wealth of different armies is fantastic. Look forward to seeing some of your battles.

Thanks all. Just hope Conan can get his Mojo together for next time.
