You know what I haven't played in a while?

I've been so stuck on spaceships recently that I've neglected one of my other favorite games, Hordes of the Things.  It's been several months since my last game of HotT, and I'm ready to play it again.

So it's time to announce another Hordes of the Things gameday.  We kind of took the last two months off for the summer, but we're getting together on Sept. 24 for some HotT action in San Antonio.

Even though I haven't been playing, I did grab something to make a stronghold a couple of weeks ago.  This is an aquarium decoration I found at Wal-Mart.  It looks like it will be easy to convert it into a stronghold for my fire giant army, but I want to ask your opinion about something: Does it work as is, or you think I need to repaint it?

I think it works just fine with the existing paint job. It might look a bit strange if the Fire Giants standing on the battlefield are actually taller than the stronghold. I understand the relative nature of figure height in HotT though. I would mount the volcano on a big base to create a large dramatic stronghold. Just my $0.02.
