Damage rolls were insane.
Suddenly, a glowing light appears on one of the pine trees...
And with a mistleburst arrives Manly Fucking Santa, ready with his list to determine whose naughty or nice (I rolled a die for each hero: 2,4,6 resulted in being naughty and get whacked by MFS's flail, receiving 2d6 damage, 1,3,5 resulted in the gift of Maniac Eggnog).
'Hm, Fink was a naughty boy.'
'My my, you weren't really nice this year'
Luckily the thick armor prevented any serious wounds.
'Oh my, another nasty little ork'
Once again, poor damage rolls made no harm at all.
'You were quite nice, Apollyon, here's a Maniac 'Nog.'
'Why thank you.'
'Oh, another nice little boy!'
'Here, take this.'
Thus the merrymaker left the field.
Cavalry attacked, but only managed to kill the champiork.
The dwarves went for Beaky and with a monstrous roll, they busted off a chunk of his 4 hp.
Crossbowmen slew 3 spearboyz.
Swordsmen attacked the grave guard but failed to do harm.
Apollyon pulled himself together, but his feat roll failed.
So did the Storm Titans'.
Immortals do it from behind! The rear assault chipped 1 hp off from drummertroll.
Rot Walker killed another ork, while Corpse Grinder approached the arrowboys with malicious intents in mind.
Skeletons ganged on the Warboss...
... but due to a succesful redshirting, the bannerboy got torn apart instead.
Arrowboys fired a hail of bolts, dealing another damage to Rot Walker.
The warboss hopped on corpse grinder...
... and started to beat his head with the blunt end of the axes, somehow managing to control the monstrosity this way.
He managed to obliterate the rest of the ax skeletons.
Then CG got bored and threw him off. I love fun feats like this!
Orkboys chose the chivalrious 2-on-1 method of attack, and killed 2 knights.
The shaman sneaked away with the artefact; cannontroll blasted the crossbowmen, killing 4.
The rest was hacked apart by spearboyz.
Beaky retaliated with a pillar of fire to the dwarves, scorching four; dwarves get 4 grudge points. Wartroll tried to flatten a necrolyte but failed and I didn't find it worthy for a shot.
Peasants moved in but failed to get in contact with the infernus, but the swordsmen dealt enough damage to bust off 1 hp.
Which was followed by the warmachine's fire, dealing another point of damage, and knocking him over.
The spearmen and Fabio killed 4 grave guard.
Ranged units overkilled the shaman.
'I was so... close...'
Infernus stood up but failed to attack.
Meanwhile the necrolyte had a critical success and revived 2 grave guard, who then killed 3 spearmen.
Meanwhile, in the Abyss...
'You were a nice evil overlord this year, Warhead, have a maniac eggnog!'
'So were you, Heltar, but I know nog gives you diarrhea, so here, have some Helliday Spirits instead.'
Terrorguard ganged on Nega-Drakes, dealing 1-1 damage to each.
The ghosts gathered to guard Warhead who gave a speech:
'Mighty Angels of Death! Why fight by the side of a lesser evil? Join me, and I'll give you conquest and slaughter!'
One of them was persuaded and to show his loyalty, he skewered a Nega-Drake.
'Nobody defies ME!' Yelled Heltar and unleashed a burst of dark energy, killing the treacherous AoD and 2 Terrorguard.
'Ain't it ironic that you have to kill even your own troops, Heltar?'
'You made a mistake by coming here, Warhead.'
Heltar and his minions attacked but poor rolls were poor.
