Expanding the Undead in HOT 15mm Fantasy – Bows and Spears

“Come on chaps!  I loved those Trolls and the Tabletop re-releases are all great too but I want more stuff in the HOT range.  How about some skeletons?!”

Back in the summer of this year asked hundreds of its customers what they would like to see as the next expansion of packs in the superb HOT 15mm Fantasy Range.  There was an acre of feedback and it was tough to separate the leading requests by their popularity but in the end the subject that topped the table was The Undead.  The rattling of bones and the leering grin of a skeletal skull.  This was the stuff of new wargamers dreams for 15mm Fantasy as the comment at the top taken from the survey demonstrates.

As a result of this we have created several new pack codes expanding the Undead in the range but also altering existing codes in the range to improve them.  The project is in several parts but I am concerned here with this first part which we will see on the website and with our stockists soon.  This first part expands existing codes as follows:

HOT40 Skeleton Missile Troops    (16 Miniatures)
The current HOT40 is being up gunned with additional skeleton missile troops.  These poses add to the original skeleton archer in the pack.  Added poses are another three archers in varied stances and two poses of skeleton with crossbows.  This makes a new total of six poses in HOT40.  Dressed in a mix of armour pieces and clothing they will suit most settings from classic fantasy to dungeoneering and medieval fantasy crossovers too.

HOT41 Skeleton Spears (16 Miniatures)
The current HOT41 is being 'fleshed out' with additional spear toting skeleton troops.  These new poses add to the original two skeleton spearmen in the pack.  Added poses are another two skeletons in armour and clothing with spears.  This makes a new total of four poses in HOT41.  They fit in well with the rest of the HOT Undead Range of packs and will suit the same settings as HOT40 for example.
As with the rest of the HOT 15mm Fantasy Range we will be offering the purchase choices of a single pack or three packs with a ten percent saving or a sampler with one of each pose in the pack (great for skirmishing or dungeon crawling) all at great prices. Suitable for any 15mm Fantasy wargame rules system from HOTT 2nd Edition to Age of Might and Steel and others such as Song of Blades and Heroes.

We begin the releases on Wednesday 29th of October 2014 with these two codes.

If you are a keen wargamer who plays the Undead in 15mm scale then there is already a lot to see in the HOT range.  Here are the current codes:

HOT12 Ghoul, Wraith and Knight (16 miniatures)
HOT14 Hordes of the Dead (16 miniatures)
HOT21 Zombie Horde (16 miniatures)
HOT24 Undead Cavalry (6 miniatures)
HOT36 Mounted Wraiths (6 miniatures)
HOT63 Catapult with Undead Crew (1 set)
HOT64 Cadaver Zombies (10 miniatures)
HOT74 Wraith Lord on Fell Beast (1 set)
HOT83 Undead Command (16 pieces)
HOT95 Ghosts (10 miniatures)

These can all be found on the HOT 15mm Fantasy page of our website HERE.

If you have ideas for HOT then I always want to hear them.  The range almost always expands on the back of wargamers requests so comment here or all the better email me direct and let me know what you would like to see. There will be a second part to this expansion of the Undead in the HOT range next month as we have even more codes coming.  But no spoilers at this point as they are still very much in the works.

Thanks for Reading.
