Don't you mean hot dwarves?!
Actually, HOTT refers to Hordes of The Things, a fun set of fantasy wargame rules based on the popular historical ancient rules, De Bellis Antiquitatis (DBA). And I have seen the plural of dwarf spelled dwarves and dwarfs.
In any case, I started painting up a new set of Old Glory spearmen. I love the old Games Workshop dwarfs, but I think these guys have a bit more character. (Plus GW doesn't make dwarf spearmen any more.) I'll post some pictures up soon.
By the way, it is HOT in Bakersfield today. 94 degrees now and inching toward 100.
