Rorke’s Picnic (Eureka 28mm Teddy Bears)

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.

    1. They are quite fun. But pricey. A 24 figure SYW battalion at $AUD2.95 is an expensive folly. I may have to restrain myself 🙂
