"Stunning, absolutely stunning. I love all of it but I think the Ravens have to be some of my favorite troops and the Ankou is just amazing. Plus that centerpiece is gorgeous.
I can't wait to print these!
- Wayward Heart
"You are seriously masters of your craft!"
- Veluta Lunata
"Fantastic! Absolutely love that this fits a 'Christmas' theme (in a magnificently dark and twisted way) but is in no way limited by that. These minis are going to see so much play time rather than just being brilliant display pieces. Also think it is brilliant to include the 5th troop as a HI exclusive. Keep up the amazing work HI team)"

The Crows Who Stole Christmas
When we ran a poll about what you guys wanted for the December release, a big majority was focusing on a dark version of Christmas. There were also many asks for more or less obvious references to pagan traditions, eastern, northern, and celtic mythologies. There were also quite a lot of requests for druidic characters and woodland creatures.
So, I thought: “Why not take all of these ideas and build something with that?”
And this is how the story and characters of this month's release were born. In all traditions, Christmas is linked to the Winter Solstice when the days finally start to get longer again, as the sun starts its ascension towards summer and the rebirth of life.
But what if, somewhere in the farthest reaches of Winter, there was a dark force waiting for the sun to be at its all-time low to kill the hope of new life once and for all and make sure that Winter never ends?
This is how I came up with the idea of a crow-worshiping force that would rush through fields of ice and snow to come and steal Christmas forever.
Shill is a dark spirit who appears to people who have lost their ways amidst frozen forests/ Shining a warm light from her lantern, she guides them to the welcoming warmth of her magnificent fur coat and the comfort of having found their way again. But she is just a Siren of the Frost, and all this warmth is just an illusion and her prey, hoping for comfort, will disrobe and fall in her arms just to die in a frozen stupor.
Karcass, the Ghost of Christmas Lost is of course inspired by Dickens’ story of Scrooge and the three Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. But here, I thought that we would have a much darker Ghost, the one that would come to remind you what it could be if Christmas was lost forever and there would never be hope for the renewal of life.
Krempess, the Whipping Father (Père Fouettard in French) is also a French traditional character. He is somehow the French version of Krampus. He is supposed to come on the night of Christmas and distribute sacks of black coal instead of gifts to people who behaved badly, and to whip them throughout the night… He is, in a way, the negative version of Santa Claus.
The Ankou is a French character from Brittany’s legends. He would fit perfectly in our dark tale of Winter. It is said that on the last day of the year, the very last person to die before midnight will become the Ankou for the following year, turned into some sort of undead spirit, he will be tasked to gather the souls of all the people who will die in the coming year. And so he shall roam the land in his cart, piling up dead bodies as the year passes on.
Here is the full line-up of all the minis from this release.
