The return of The Stronghold

For many years, Hordes of the Things players visited The Stronghold, a website by a British wargamer going by the name of Kaptain Kobold.  The Stronghold held a great number of articles on the game's rules, strategies, alternate rules, army lists, and miniatures.  Unfortunately, the author moved from the UK to Australia, and his site eventually went dark. 

It was missed, and every few months some member of the Yahoo group would ask what happened to the Stronghold.  Another list member posted some of the old Stronghold material, but the original site was still history.

Well now Kaptain Kobold has rebuilt the Stronghold, this time in the form of a blog.  The Stronghold Rebuilt only has a few posts so far, but it looks to become a great resource for HotT, just like its predecessor.  I'm adding the remodeled version of the Stronghold to my blogroll, and I look forward to seeing it grow.

Thanks for the promotion - links from this blog are making up a high proportion of the hits on The Stronghold at the moment ;)

Thanks for stopping by, Kaptain, and thanks for your blog. I enjoyed the Stronghold back when it was up; in fact, browsing your website was one of the things that inspired me to pick up Hordes of the Thing.
