Beanworld army for Hordes of the Things

One of my favorite comic books is the Beanworld series by writer/artist (and former Image Comics exec) Larry Marder.  The series started back in the 1980s, and Dark Horse is publishing it in hardback these days ( Book 1 | Book 2 | Book 3 ). 

"It's not just a place, it's a process!"

It's hard to summarize the concept behind this comic, other than to point you to the BeanWeb and the Beanworld Wiki.  You can also take a look at the Beanworld creator's blog.

Anyway, I'm a big fan of this comic, and felt inspired to create a Hordes of the Things list for the beans' army (of course, I'd have to make the figures myself ...).  Anyhoo, here's the HotT army list for the beans of Beanworld:

Beanworld character      HotT element     points
Mr. Spook                Hero General       4
Beanish                  Hero               4
Professor Garbanzo       Magician           4
Boom’r Band              Warband            2
Spear Fling’n Flank’rs   Shooters           2
Chow Pluk’rs             Spears x 3         6
Pod'l Pool Cuties        Flyers             2
Stronghold: Gran'Ma'Pa
Now, I just need to come up with an opposing army.  Any suggestions?

Wow. THAT brings back memories. Comics I was reading at that time: Grimjack, Dynamo Joe, the original TMNT plus all the parodies, all flavors of Conan/Red Sonja, and quite a few of the manga that were translate in the US.

Opposing army: CONAN!

I picked up the trade paperbacks of Grimjack a couple of years ago. They're still good stories. There's even have a Dynamo Joe guest appearance!
