Once again @oriskany brings us news of some terrible goings on at the North Pole with Christmas Carnage IV. If you’ve not checked this out before it’s an awesome bit of fun on the tabletop featuring some weird and whacky armies.
If you’re entirely unsure what all of this is about, let’s have oriskany explain…
“Good evening Beasts of War. For the fourth year running, we have to interrupt your regularly-scheduled Beast of War content for an emergency flash bulletin – SANTA’S WORKSHOP AT THE NORTH POLE IS UNDER ATTACK! We repeat, SANTA’S WORKSHOP AT THE NORTH POLE IS UNDER ATTACK!
As of this hour, we are reliably informed that the brave and elite North Pole Defense Force (NPDF – a highly-trained militia to protect the warm wishes and good cheer of Santa and his winter village during the holiday season) has been mobilized to meet the incursion.
What is less clear is the exact nature of this latest threat. Of course, the NPDF has stood off three previous assaults on the North Pole, which first came under attack by a rogue task force of 1930s-era Soviet armour, then a tank-helicopter battlegroup of 1985 Team Yankee Soviets, and finally an hypertech assault force of Clan Ghost Bear ‘mechs from the Sci-Fi classic BattleTech universe.”
New Year, New Threats
This time, however, Santa faces a new threat…
“This year, however, Santa’s workshop faces a far darker, more mysterious threat. Not a historical army, or a modern army, or even a Sci-Fi army…but a horde spawned of pure evil and supernatural forces beyond scientific understanding.
Time will only tell if the NDPF is equipped to stand off this latest threat. We promise to keep you informed with bulletins as more information comes in. Can Christmas be saved…yet again?”
Make sure to go and check out what’s going on with Christmas Carnage IV over in the forums and get involved in the comments with what you thought of the battle and its outcome.
Do you play any Christmas themed games around this time of year?
