I forgot to post this. I managed to put those Squig Hoppers on the table, after all. After seeing my prospects for playing Regiments of Renown diminish to practically zero, an opportunity came out of the blue. This was over a week ago.
The game was a blast. I played against Erik's Lizardmen. It was so nice to put my old Orc & Goblin models on the table again. This game is basically what I was trying to do, when I restarted the hobby back in 2006. It's taken awhile just to come full circle!
Here's a link to the quick battle report.
