On Sunday my daughter treated my wife and I to wedding anniversary trip to the theatre to see' Peter Pan Gone Wrong', which I can heartily recommend seeing if you get the chance. On the way back I was reminded that man years ago I subjected Disney's film version to the HOTT treatment, backed up with bits and pieces from the book, for one must always go back to the original source material if possible. So here it is; another article from the old Stronghold, resurrected and dusted off for your pleasure.
Army Lists for ‘Hordes of the Things’
By Alan Saunders
My children have recently become obsessed with Disney's 'Peter Pan'. The only way to stay sane under such an onslaught was to consider the HOTT potential.
The Lost Boys
Stronghold: Hideout in hollow tree
Aerial Hero General (Peter Pan and Wendy) @ 6AP
Flier (Tinkerbell) @ 2AP
Water Lurker (Crocodile) @ 1AP
Water Lurker (Mermaids) @ 1AP
Warband (John, Michael and other Lost Boys) @ 2AP
At the end of the film they capture Hook's ship and Tinkerbell enchants it so that it can fly: Airboat @ 3AP.
Stronghold: Pirate ship
Hero General (Captain Hook with Mr. Smee) @ 4AP
Artillery (Cannon) @ 3AP
Sneaker (Pirates bearing gift-wrapped bomb)@ 3AP
Warband (Pirates) @ 2AP
Stronghold: Indian encampment
Warband General (Indian chief) @ 2AP
Warband (Indian braves) @ 2AP
Lurkers (Indians disguised as trees) @ 1AP
These lists are based on the film. An examination of the book, however, doesn't require too many changes to the lists, although it gives Hook a crew of just seventeen, which is going to stretch the army a little. The Lost Boys fare even worse; there are only six of them, although there is, at least, an implication that there are sometimes more (Pan is described as 'culling' them from time to time, which is a little disturbing).
Although they don't put in much of an appearance, there is a fourth force in Neverland; the Beasts. A pretty simple army list - twelve beasts. Easy. Funnily enough the crocodile would make a good general for this army, although it would lose its water lurker status in the Pan's force. The rest of the beasts are, as far as I can remember, such things as bears, wolves and so forth.
