I'm not going down the expensive and time-consuming route of collecting OOP 80s vintage Citadel lead off eBay. No. Not happening. It's just that these immaculate white metal babies arrived today;
Slagroth Vilestaff and Jazekal Iron Face respectively. Slagroth is intended to be my Magician General for my ever-growing Hordes of the Things Goblin army (aka The Goblins of Crippledick Peak) which is ever-growing since it's a re-basing project of my abortive WFB7 Night Goblin army.
On the subject of Hordes of the Things, The Goblins of Crippledick Peak got an outing against the forces of Darthphil of A Game of Bones which is the first time I'd played HotT in nearly a decade. Had forgotten what a great game it is that "feels" like a gargantuan battle but actually gets away with using the sort of figure count you'd more normally associate with a skirmish setup.
Hordes of the Things rules are now free - http://www.wrg.me.uk/WRG.net/History/HOTT2.pdf although you don't get the army lists which were effectively only suggestions anyway.
With the demise of The Stronghold (the main site for all things HotT) the next best thing is probably The Stronghold Rebuilt on which Alan Saunders (elder brother of Darthphil) is slowly copypasta-ing some of the old Stronghold's content.
Another good site is the dedicated entry at boardgamegeek.
