Santa Fights Back!

I don't know about you, but every night after I get home from work I see yet another news story about the "War on Christmas." I never thought I'd live to see the day when there would be so many real live Scrooges and Grinches running amok. Well I got news for all of them, Santa can now fight back! You heard me right, there is at least one supplier of Santa wargaming figures out there. The figures in this photo comes from Amazon Miniatures. Apparently there was another supplier in the UK called "Wargame Supply Dump" but they appear to be closed down.
But that is not all, not only can you find minis, you can also get a set of rules for employing them in a combat mode; as a free download! Check out the "Free" page at Two Hour Wargames and you will see a little gem called "Santa Claus Wars." It, and apparently all their other rules, are based on a core set of rules called Chain Reaction 2, which is also available for a free download. These CR2 rules are generic enough that you can use them for almost anything you want to do!
