Slide show AAR of a classic HotT game, and a BBDBA

My good friend Nick Grant sent me the link to this ANIMOTO slide show of a recent HotT battlebetween his fantasy EIR army and my own Lost Worlds army (commanded by wiley player Mark O)

The game was one of a series of games played at our first HotT games day 'A Hott Winter's Day' played in July.

Nick also sent me links to two shows that relate the two halves of a Big Battle DBA game: Early Imperial Romans (with Numidian allies) versus Gauls.
All of the figures were painted by Nick himself. I have to confess to commanding the Gallic right and got a little carried away with the chariots: for some reason I thought I could play the Numidian allies at their own game.. silly boy!!

The first half.
The second half.

Nice stuff, thanks Nick
