Alternative Armies 15mm Fantasy range. Unpainted white metal castings. Manufactured by Alternative Armies, Girvan, Scotland. These figures were designed to provide armies for the Wargames Research Group Hordes of the Things rules (HOTT).
HOT 14 Hordes of the Dead. Six figures, two each of three different designs. I think that this set of figures borrows from the Tolkien trilogy Lord of the Rings. These figures may represent the oath breakers summoned by Aragorn in the Paths of the Dead. They comprise:
- A skeletal warrior wielding a sword in its right hand and holding what appears to be a severed head in its left. The figure is approximately 17mm tall.
- A skeletal warrior wielding a scimitar in its right hand and holding a small round shield on its left hand. The shield has a sharp point instead of a boss and should be considered as a parrying weapon. The figure wears an turban style headdress. The figure is approximately 18mm tall.
- A skeletal warrior wielding an axe in its right hand and carrying a small round shield on its left arm. The figure is approximately 17mm tall.
Supplied without the original packaging. Condition of the model as new.
The original pack contained sixteen figures from four different designs – we have listed these separately in groups of six figures.
