'Deep in the Musty Darkness of the Witchlands something flavoursome stirs....'
The Elves of the 167eme never knew what hit them. Marching through the endless snow towards the village of Ladelova the soldiers had wrapped their lockes and fixed their bayonets realising that in the blizzard their black powder would not fire. More than that any enemy would rise up in front of them out of nowhere. They were experienced troops, they had battled the Undead before and the hated Zombiski Cossacks too but what confronted them was too strange to cope with. Out of the snow came what looked like a solitary Zombie wearing what looked like a very tall white hat that was bobbing in the ever present wind. Behind this denizen of the dead were two terrified Dwarves who were also wearing tall white hats. The soldiers stopped their advance and waited for orders. This was unprecedented. These Witchlanders were not even armed! Aside from their location the trio seemed better suited to a Lyonesse kitchen than here in a frozen hell. Bunching up to get a better look the Elves waited for their leader to move to the fore. As the commanding officer did so the tall thin Undead baker, for that is what he appeared to be, took a long wooden spoon from its belt and waved it to the left and then to the right before shouting two words and then in turning around walked away.
The bemused Elves stood and stared and that was why they never saw what hit them. Out of the drifting snow on either side of them came huge striding shapes. What were they, too thin for Ogres, too tall for Werewolves, too rigid to be mortal. They strode on legs that did not bend and had heads so much bigger than their bodies. What where they? A few of the more veteran soldiers took a few steps back and readied their muskets but most just gawked. Then the looming creatures were upon them. Standing taller than any Elf and with ice and snow crusted to their rounded limbs and heads they were...made of hard baked biscuit! Then the Gingerbread Men were among the Elves and crushing skulls and splintering bones with every swing of their arms. Black jellied fruit eyes looked down with menace and the few musket balls that struck the rock hard biscuit bodies did little to slow them.
Few escaped and they were not believed. The dead might walk and magicke real in places...but Gingerbread soldiers in the service of the Dark Czar...hah!
Have fun and look out for the special Salute 2012 scenario 'Sharke's Gingerbread' which features these characters and those from 5109 Sharkes Chosen.
