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.

Il Buono, Il Brutto, Il Peluche*

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.

Il Buono

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.

Il Cattivo

Angel Eyes. I like the way the handle of the revolver came out.

Il Brutto

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.
