September gameday recap
Even though we played just one game and I was ready for more HotT action, other people (who evidently have lives) had other things to do, so that was the extent of our Hordes of the Things gameday. It wasn't quite the end of our gaming, however.
War Rocket with retro-looking minis by Hydra Miniatures. He refereed a quick game between Chip and myself Chips played the saucer ships (the agile Zenithians), while I took the aerodynamic but less-maneuvarable Imperials. In our playtest with equal forces, I managed to destroy three out of four enemy ships and took no casualties. However, I didn't win, as Chip was able to capture the objective and carry it off his side of the board, even after I blew up the first ship carrying the McGuffin. The game has fairly simple rules and plays very quickly, and the minis have a great mid-20th century design aesthetic. I look forward to playing it again.
