I've been working on these guys again. The original conversions were only so-so, and I felt that I could do a lot better at making them look like the actual monsters in the expansion artwork. These guys now have more appropriate winter clothing, extending the existing garments and added white fur trim. And swopped them over on to proper HQ bases.

I just love those inverted santa clauses. :D
I think it was a deliberate designer's joke in the BQP and fell that your variant is true to the original, plus they are always worth a laugh. :redheart:

You're going far north, so that's where Santa lives. Then Santa wants gifts for distribution. So as Santa's elf, you have the choice: make or steal. :lol:

The elves work for Santa, the Gremlins work for Krampus.

Zargon = FAILED SANTA

Think about it... big white beard, red attire. In HQ world, their Santa is evil, hence the war of Chaos.

traditionally, Orcs are fallen elves right? And who is it that worked for Santa? Exactly.

I wonder if that means Krampus and Black Pete are good guys there?

I can see it now.. the Hero Quest Holiday Special... where Zargon learns the true meaning of Christmas! (with help from the Barbarian, Elf, Dwarf and Wizard)

I think it's a bit strange question to ask. What is an ice gremlin? It's an ice gremlin.
But if we had to place them in Warhammer Fantasy, I'd say the closest thing would probably be a gnoblar.
They live in cold mountains, and are also fond of collecting/stealing scrap.
