Thanks to some store credit over at Noble Knight Games, I was able to order Hordes of the Things. A wargame, I know, but after Chgowiz blogged about it, it sounded like a fun accessory to our gaming. I'm not sure how well I can integrate it into stronghold-level play, but I'm looking forward to trying. I love this philosophy:
"Our intent is to provide the simplest possible set of fantasy wargames rules that retain the feel and generalship requirements of battle. We start from the assumptions that spell selection must not be a more important skill than generalship, that the results of magic or command decisions can be shown rather than the minutia of communication or spell casting, and that differences between troops of the same general class are relatively unimportant. The resulting system is much more subtle than may be immediately apparent".
..one that fits very well with what I'm trying to accomplish at our table.
I've also been checking out this web page for some cool ideas for HotT. I'm excited to start building a makeshift army out of old toys, paper counters, and leftover minis!
