Scenario Special Rules
No player may initiate any action which could result in any trooper being placed in a Dead, Sepsitorised or Unconscious state. Stun Special Ammo may not be used in this Scenario (Flash Ammo can be used).
All Hacking attacks which would cause Wounds, instead cause the target to have an and to enter the Chilled State.
All troopers gain the Snowball Weapon Profile. Snowballs may be used in Close Combat (with Martial Arts) or as a BS Attack.

Snow Special Ammo
After a successful attack using Snow Special Ammunition, the target must make an ARM Roll.
If the Target fails an ARM roll they are Chilled. To enter the Chilled State, a trooper needs to have been Chilled a number of times equal to their Wounds or Structure (STR).
|Brandy||0”-8” +3||8”-16”||-6||1||Apply Brandy|
Ice Special Ammo
After a successful attack using Ice Special Ammunition, the target must make a PH Roll.
If the Target fails to roll bellow their PH they enter the Iced state.
When a trooper enters a Chilled state they do not generate any orders and may not be activated. (Null State)
(Valor: Dogged and No-wound Incapacitation can’t be used to avoid this state)
1 Level of Chilled may be removed by successful application of Eggnog or Brandy (For units with Wounds) or De-Icer (for units with structure).
If a trooper is in base contacted with a trooper in a Chilled state they may apply Brandy. The effected trooper makes a PH-3 roll, if successful the Chilled state is cancelled. If unsuccessful, the trooper enters the Snozzled state.
Brandy may be thrown to troopers (to immediately use) with the following ranges.
When a trooper enters the Iced state, they are placed in the Immobilised Level 2 state. This state may be cancelled automatically by an Engineer with De-Icer, or by any other trooper making a Short Skill (Chip Away) roll (lower than PH)
After an attack with Ice Special Ammo, after the conclusion of the attack, place a circular template anywhere where the centre of the circular template is within the initial Direct Template Attack. This now becomes Ice Terrain and remains for 2 turns.
Any trooper who attempts to move in an Ice Terrain must make a PH-3 roll. If they fail, place a circular template with the 1 to the centre and roll a d20. The trooper then moves in that direction for the remainder of their intended movement, or until they reach the edge of the Ice Terrain.
Prone troopers or Troopers with Multi-terrain may ignore these effects.
Troopers with any level of Valour or Ghost are immune to this state.
Troopers in this state become Extremely Impetuous at the start of the next activation.
Whenever the trooper is activated by expending an order on them roll a D20.

Carrot Tracker and Secure High Value Snowman
Each player at the start of their deployment must place a single High Value Snowman anywhere on the table (at least 4″ outside any Deployment Zone). HVS can’t be CivEvac’d and may not be the target of any attacks.
At the end of deployment and in initiative Order each player must designate a single trooper to be the Carrot Tracker. This trooper may not be deployed in (or later enter) a Camo or Impersonation State, and must start deployed on the table.
If your troopers is in 8” of the High Value Snowman at the end of the game (and the opponent is not in 8” or your High Value Snowman) it is Secured (for 1 OP). If a Carrot Tracker finishes the game in base contact with a High Value Snowman and Secures it, they may place a Carrot on the Snowman for a nose and gain 2 OP.
End of the Mission
This scenario has a limited time frame, so it will automatically finish at the end of the third Game Round.
If one of the players starts his Active Turn in a Retreat! situation, the game will end at the end of that Turn.
