Been a bit busy in the shed between the bought's of dizziness.
US Army - Hott Rules
So the Army is at the standard above, Not 100% happy with the infantry I may yet redo them as the camouflage does not do them justice, I may yet redo them in plain green.
The Big thing top left is my M48 Bridge layer acting as the Strong hold, but may yet become another Dragon or Behemoth.
So I my 24 AP will buy me 5 Shooters, 1 Hero, 1 Behemoth and another Behemoth or a Dragon. But at 48 points they all come into play with a few points to spare. I can either add another artillery piece (I have a spare M109 which needs a barrel. Add some snipers as Lurkers or get a couple of Apache helicopters and act as Flyers??
Need to try the army out first. But for now here are some more shots of the M48 Bridge layer.
Oh and I still need to work out what to do with the bases.
whilst laying in bed due to an illness I had an epiphany over an Hott army. I had seen on some ones blog that they had fought against an Vietnam army with the blue guy from Watchman as their Hero (?)
Well I decided to do an modern army with some old figures and models I have had for 20 years in storage.
Below is the result awaiting repainting and the bases finished:
The army so far consists of the following:
1 Magician (Tow Launcher)
1 Artillery (M109)
6 Shooters or Warbands (Infantry)
3 Riders or Beasts (M113 APC)
2 Knights or Behemoths (Sheridans)
2 Behemoths or Dragons (M1 Tanks)
so that's 42 AP
Just remembered I had a m60 bridge layer, may be that's my strong hold.
I want to get it up to 48 AP. I was thinking of 2 flyers (Apache's) and 2 Lurkers (Snipers) should finish it off.
Sat in my shed for years was an army, Not quite the size it used to be, but an army never the less.
Many moons ago a friend and I shared the contents of a Warhammer Starter set, ME getting the Goblins and him the High Elves, thus started an on off relationship with Warhammer.
Since then my army grew into biblical proportions. My Uncle got the Warhammer bug also and started his own High Elf army and an Arms race started. AT the height of the battles on a 8 foot by 6 foot table we fielded units the size you would never do nowadays, Elven regiments were in 32's, my Goblins went to 72 figure strong with 16 Regiments, 8 spears and 6 Bow armed in the army, the Black Orcs were fielded at over 40 figs a unit. It was the height of Battle magic and we maxed out on the magic items and wizards and shamans. A battle would take us nearly a week to play with over 1500 figures on the table, but then came the decline and fall of my obsession with Warhammer.
Warhammer 40k took over briefly and also went out of control, but that, is another story.
Over the years my Orc and Goblin army slowly was thinned out and was sold off to pay the bills. And a smaller army was kept in reserve, this is again going to be curtailed and rebased for use with the HOTT set of rules.
So Warhammer...Fare well, Look to E(Vil)bay for my surplus, I am leaving Warhammer for the probably the last time.
But below are some pics of my small Orc and Goblin Army before it exits the gaming stage forever...
