South Pole, American Hegemony Station, Deep Winter 2082......
With a groaning of effort the mercenaries managed to push the heavy steel door shut. Its red paint was flecked in places from bullet impacts and burned by the flame throwers used by these private soldiers in their efforts to keep out what was following them. Malamute Executive Response had sent in a dozen of them in one grav-copter and a second dozen in another. Of the other group there was no sign and only ten of the twelve here remained. Two of their number had been lost, changed, by the snow made men out there on the ice.
Sergeant Campbell ordered full weapons and kit checks and reloads and in a matter of a minute the reduced team were ready once more to proceed into the silent complex of the AH Station. They were in a large open plan entrance hall and what looked like a meeting area. Furniture was scattered about and two bodies lay in grotesquely twisted shapes on the hard floor. The sergeant signalled two of their number to take a look at the bodies while the rest of them advanced with their M104 rifles ready. The flame throwers were stowed away in favour of combat shotguns due to the blaze risk inside the station.
“Collins what happened to those poor bastards?”
The bodies had been mauled by wild animals with great bloody tears in their flesh and clothing. But what was really odd was that they also had hundreds of fine green needles stuck in their skins around the wounds. Something was really wrong with AH Station. What were the corporate staff here doing?
“Sergeant. I have no idea. They are dead aright, have been for a while in fact. But these green needles...almost like from a tree or something.”
After what had happened outside the Malamute mercenaries were taking no chances. They scanned the large area again and this time noticed two dozen decorated trees that surely had not been there before. Loaded with baubles and bedecked with garlands it was strange since it was late autumn. They were about to return their attention to the corpses when the trees shook and seemed to start to move towards them. What happened next resulted in a hail of gunfire. The tree nearest to Trooper Baines seemed to split apart up its trunk and a mouth emerged. A mouth with a red tongue and rows of razor sharp white teeth!
“Aw Hell! This is turning into a real peach of a day. Fire! Pick your targets and get pruning!”

South Pole, American Hegemony Station, Deep Winter 2082......
"Collins get him on his feet. McBeardy what happened here? Where's the rest of the staff?"
The snowfall had been heavy and lay all across the ice sheet making the dozen mercenaries of the Malamute Executive Response nervous. The grav-copter had dropped them off less than five minutes ago and then fled before the oncoming storm trapped it. As the team had made it way toward the buildings of the AH Station they had seen no sign of life. No sign of the fifty wage slave and corporate staff or the detachment of guards with them. What was going on? The company had hired them and flown them in. A lot of firepower for what might be a busted comms suite.
"McBeardy. Can you hear me? Where's the staff? Why are you out here?"
Collins had shouldered his M104 Auto-Rifle and had McBeardy by the shoulders. The scientist appeared to be barely concious and his clothes were torn, his feet bare. He would be dead from exposure if they did not get him inside soon. Sergeant Campbell was about to tell Collins to just drag McBeardy along with them when Collins screamed in terror and dropped the scientist to the ground.
"Collins. What the hell are you doing? Get him up, right fu....."
Sergeant Campbell trailed off and instead he, along with the rest of the mercenaries, watched open mouthed as McBeardy convulsed and then began to change. His clothes burst and the ground around him was lashed by brown tendrils that dragged snow towards the scientist. With a howl of inhuman origin what was once McBeardy rose to its feet its body bulking up and changing white. In moments shapes took form upon the white body, a scarf, a hat and a wicked ice knife in gloved hands. McBeardy was gone as his face imploded and was replaced by what looked like for all the world two pieces of coal and a carrot. The snow made man for what was what is was turned on Collins and lunged at him arms outstreched.
"Fire. Damn it, kill it. Fire!"

Cold Thing and Branch Face- USEME Scenarios
Last year we advertised a free USEME scenario that was coming up to go with our festive range. Sadly the master file for this scenario was lost and therefore it was never published. This year though 15mm.co.uk will be putting up two scenarios for free. The first is a re-write of the original Cold Thing and the second is a new one called Branch Face. Generic and suitable for UM001 15mm Science Fiction or UM004 Modern Warfare they will give you a weekend of fun for sure! Details to come.
Thanks for Reading!
