I took a break from painting Napoleonics and painted these two Eureka Teddy bears from the Rorke’s Picnic range for a happy couple getting married. One with English ancestry and one with South African.
I already have some Teddy Bears from the “The Good, the Bad and the Cuddly” range, a few of which I have posted on the blog . Eureka also does Pirates and Seven Years Picnic bears that are a real treat. To say I am tempted in painting a whole battalion of Seven Years Wars Teddy bears is an understatement.
First off the Zulu Bear. He came with a choice of Plunger Assegai or a looted Martini Henry Pop gun. I went for the more tradition plunger. Drilled and pinned to keep it attached to the arm.
An officer of the 24th (2nd West 100-Acre Wood) Regiment of Foot. Armed with trusty service suction cup gun and wooden sword.
The two together waiting for their mummies and daddies to come and take them home.
