I set up a quick game of HOTT yesterday lunchtime - it's wet here so there's not much point to going out anywhere. I used Camelot (two heroes - one a general, a paladin, four knights and two blades) against the Wainrider Barbarians (one hero general, four knights, four warband and two shooters). The Barbarians defended, and set up a terrain of dense woods. Camelot attacked out of them.
The Barbarians' left was the warband, and they were pushed forward rapidly to overwhelm the blades on Camelot's right.
This was the final position.
