Another Eureka Miniatures Teddy bear. This time the Dread Pirate Ted. I am seriously thinking that a battalion of their Seven Years Picnic Bears would be a nice addition to the collection.
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.
What can I say about these guys other than – Get some pants on!
These are Eureka Miniatures bears from their ‘The Good, The Bad and the Cuddly‘ range. The are the first of a series for my 100 Acre Deadwood game I plan to put on at Call to Arms (Wellington, New Zealand) this year.
I decided on a slightly different blanket for this particular Blondie than the one the human version used in the movie. More colourful you see.
Angel Eyes. I like the way the handle of the revolver came out.
I think it is a little harsh calling this Tuco Benedicto Pacífico Juan María Ramírez ‘the Ugly’. Too cute for that.
*Peluche – is Cuddly as in a plush toy cuddly animal.
