However, it wouldn't be as easy as the chief necromancer hoped. Santa had friends (?!) to help defend the spirit of Christmas. From the east came hordes of Oriental workers, reluctant to see a good source of income overthrown. From the south, a band of mercenaries approached, attracted by the promise of the endless profit to be had from the man in red.
Let the battle commence...
The GameThis was a straightforward big-battle game of Hordes of the Things, with no special rules or scenario (because I couldn't think of anything in time). There are 3x24AP armies on each side.
The 3 undead armies of the Cabal (on the left of the picture) are lead by magician generals and consist of the usual hordes of skeletons, zombies &c, with a mixture of bats, riders, sneakers and a few other troop types to pad them out.
The other 3 armies are all quite distinct! To the north, the Kung Fu army is made up of several heroes, some infantry and hordes of peasants. In the middle, Santa's army has ice bears, elves with guns, snowmen and a toy soldier cannon. To the south, the mercenaries have a decent block of spears, some crossbowmen, a few knights, a pair of duellist assassins and a strange flying machine.
