Hordes & Heroes via Skype: Samurai v Koreans

This was our first Skype game of Hordes and Heroes with the two players 3250 miles apart! Alex based in Ottawa Canada, and myself based in Warsop in Nottinghamshire. With the board and miniatures in the UK it was vital that the Canadian player had a clear view of the table and the exact locations of...

The missing battle reports - Games before lock down!

On the last two club nights on the 3rd and 10th March, before the club meetings were temporarily suspended due to the covid-19 virus, we played four H&H medieval games. I found the photos and brief notes for these which I never got round to writing-up. All four games featured a French Hundred Years ...

Hammerhead report 2020

Having watched and listened to what seemed like every Corona-19 virus filled news bulletin for three weeks, on Thursday, as the government undecidedly dithered, following the government guidelines we decided Hammerhead was ‘good to go.’ And, thanks to the support of the Forest Outlaws, traders, game...

Re: HHM shooting, impacts, hussite question

Hi Julias 1. Artillery can shoot at any target within range provided that they can trace a clear line of hexes to the target hex. However, artillery units must shoot at at any enemy unit moving into hex-to-hex contact in preference over any other potential target. Small arms shooters must shoot at t...

Re: Hordes & Heroes medieval hex facing questions

Hi Julias, Any unit can use its 'movement phase' to stay within its current hex, change its current formation and/or direction of facing. This is still 'movement' but within the same hex. Shooters, small arms and artillery, can change direction of facing within a hex in their own sides movement phas...

What happens when 4 experienced H&H players, 2 each side, fight it out with identical armies?

We had a club meeting at the beginning of the club night, so I brought one of the 2 games from the previous week used for ‘training’ games. The meeting was concluded in little over 30 minutes and so, 4 of us decided to quickly spread the terrain and pitted 2 identical armies against each other; Tony...

Re: Ancients Range

Hi, Hordes & Heroes ancients was a response to persistent pressure from customers and in many ways is the natural progression back in time from the medieval ranges. The response to the initial release of 30 blisters -15 Imperial Roman and 15 Celts, has been very positive and I've had to schedule in ...

Re: Hexon Flock Colour

Hi, You will have to check the 'Gaugemaster' site, who are the British distributer for Noch, to see if the flock is avaible in different forms eg. sheets. We just use and sell the packs of fibres. Although we don't stock 'snow flock' it can be obtained fro a range of manufactures including Woodland ...
