HOTT Dragonmen

Here's a WIP army for Hordes of the Things -- Dragonmen!


The dragonmen are led by a dragon magician. This is the Silver Sorcerer from Dungeons and Dragons.




Three stands of mixed lizardmen and troglodytes. The large klizardman is from Mageknight while the remaining ones are from Dungeons and Dragons. I like the lizardman. He resembles a T-Rex imho.




And here are the dragonmen from Mageknight. I could only fit one figure per base but may play these as blades or maybe one as a hero.






This lone stand will be a beast or lurker. Both are from Dungeons and Dragons.


These large nasties are from Dinofroz. Behemoths probably. I'm not too keen on too many beasts.



Most of the figures are repurposed Mageknight and Dungeons and Dragons figures with a smattering of toys from the Dinofroz line. I didn't bother to remove the original paint and just painted over the existing colors with base paint. I still need to do a lot of clean-up though as well as jazz up the bases.

Army Building: Using Gormiti for Fantasy Wargaming

The funny thing about doing some house chores is that I inadevertently unearth stuff that I've kept stashed for some time. In this case, I found a boxful of toys I bought a year ago. Among the odds and ends I found some vinyl toys, gashopon & Gormiti figures. I've been holding on to some of these figures that I found at the local toy department and I've been eyeing some as new recruits for various fantasy armies.

The big four armed bruiser with the tree-like limbs and vines seems a likely candidate as a behemoth in my People of the Woods army as an ent. A resculpt of the head and a bit of a trim at the left hand may do the trick. As is, the monster looks like he's giving someone the dirty finger:)
Aside from the Ad&D Battlesystem and Warmaster rulesets, I'm also swaying towards HOTT as another regular ruleset and found a seller in ebay. Pretty soon, I may purchase the rules and begin my foray in HOTT. Meanwhile, the fishy thingie shown below could stock up …

Major General Tremorden Rederring's Colonial-era Wargames Page

A bit of nostalgia here. I'm gearing up for a weekend of working on my wargame table and was surfing for inspiration. Happily, I rediscovered Major General Tremorden Rederring's Colonial-era Wargames at the Wayback Machine. This wargaming group's been a source of inspiration ever since I discovered the wonderful world of miniature wargaming. Just look at that picture above and tell me you're not impressed. WOW! was all I could think off when I saw it.




The page has since given its last huzzah and I don't know what's become of the group, but I'm sure I'll be rereading the material they still have archived. A veritable treasure chest of miniature gaming gems, the page embodied the FUN side of miniature gaming, neither taking itself too seriously nor scrimping on the joys of the hobby and its subsidiary hobbies/crafts. It's a pity if such a wonderful resource and such a huge contribution to the hobby is lost. I discovered the page waaaay back then when…
