HOTT Carnage, Game 4

Game 4

Early Imperial Roman...ish...vs. Mythical Indian, generaled by Nick Sutton, Robin's son.

I took my Early Imperial Tuesdo/Tank/Behemoth, a Hero General, 6 Blades and a Dragon. Of course. Caught it in the wilds of Northern Germany, you understand.

Nick's Mytical Indians were comprised of a Behemoth General, a Hero, a Magician, three Beasts and three Riders.

My depolyment zone was again bisected by a piece of Bad Going, and also a town (more BGo), so I split my Blades East and West of it, anchoring the west on my Behemoth, and the East of my line on my Hero General.

Early in the piece, the Dragon made an appearance (yay!)...

...and soon made it's presence felt, quickly taking out a beast (no where to run, they had).

In the meantime, the rest of Nick's eastern flank crashed into my line in the west...

...with a resulting pushing and ashoving.

The dragon again went a beastie hunting with great success...

...while the rest of Nick's mounted charged into my eastern line on the other flank.

Bang! There goes one Blade, and a rather large hole developed in the line.

Thankfully, the Dragon came to the rescue, switching flanks to take on some horse meat.

Ahh, the joy of the flank attack where your opponent has no where to recoil!

Nick threw his mounted back into my isolated cohort...

...but to no avail. In charged my Hero General...

...while the Dragon again switched flank to take on Nick's Magician.

Against the odds, Trajianus, or what ever his name is, was bounced back.

But Nick's Magician was not so lucky.

In charges Nick's mounted again...

...but this time with rather terminal results.

And that was the game. And the tourney.

Frank Ansell won - his first HOTT games! - and I got second. Wha Hoo! A thoroughly enjoyable day was had by all. Well, by me and Frank anyway!

Cheers everyone,



  1. By jingo's Nick you have been pretty busy of as late.

    Well done!

  2. Cheers Paul,

    It was great to get away for a day from the Damocles Sword that is End of Year Reports!


  3. There is some cracking figures and beasties in your armoury.Very nicely painted.

  4. Thanks.

    That's one of the reasons I like playing HOTT - the variety of the figures with which you can make your armies.
