The sun never sets... HotT Winter's Day 2010

Another great HotT tournament, 'A HotT Winter's day 2010', and 25 great HotT games amongst 10 players. The tournament included 3 relatively new players (each had played at most one or two games before), and several new armies.

A few of the players at work in the first round....

One of the new armies, Kevin N's British adventurer army 'from the back of beyond', with this nice flyer.....

... and this very cool artillery piece hiding in the tall elephant grass. In the foreground is the looming bulk of a bone dragon from the opposing undead army.

More loyal adventurers from Andy G's VSF army, fighting the same Undead (well, they do keep coming back, don't they!). Andy's nice steam tank behemoth can be seen in the background.

Those British adventurers again..

And Joe's great triumph. Joe had played no HotT before the day, but here one of his two dragons in the Chaos army he had borrowed eliminates the opposing stronghold, giving Joe his first ever HotT victory.

The other VSF army in the tournament (my most recent addition) commanded by Mark, battles against another Undead army.

The final show down. The two British armies had battled through Undead, Conquistadors, Spiders, Tigers.. all manner of greebly beasties in fact, to see that the sun never set on the British Empire, until they reached the final showdown pitted against each other. The final victor was Mark, holder of the 'Emperor Dragon Trophy until the next tournament in December.


  1. And a good time was had by all. Thanks for organising it.


  2. Can joes Dragons legitimately beat a stronghold - being aerial?
