Here’s a quick sneak peek at some of the latest greens for Grinning Skull’s B.E.A.R.S in the range. Yes, you heard right, I’m adding teddy bears with guns to the mix. Why? Why not!?
For me, miniatures and gaming is supposed to be fun, and with so much serious stuff already out there I guess there needs to be more comic relief, so I decided to create these fun figures. Apparently, teddies are quite popular for collectors and such, so I thought I’d make some gaming versions that have a decidedly “Grinning Skull asthetic”
In a nutshell, The B.E.A.R.S (Bio Engineered Advanced Ranger Squad) are an artificial race of teddies, created by the great Toymaster entity for his endless amusement. Subsequently these bears went rogue and escaped from their maker to dispense justice and help throughout the Carnage Continuum to those in need. Outraged at this betrayal, the Cosmic Toymaster created their opposite (eX-T.E.D.) to hunt down and destroy his rogue children and cause chaos throughout the galaxy!
The first eX-T.E.D. bunch are forthcoming, and will feature an array of evil versions on the theme (Led by Dr. Strangefluff and his cohorts) Hopefully if popular there will be additional bears on each side, influenced by popular tropes from all sorts of things (superhero, scifi, fantasy, cartoon and movies etc)
I’ll admit, I’ve been sidetracked lately, but I’m almost finished with this set, just got a couple more eX-T.E.D. figures to go, but I’ll show off them soon.
I’ll show more from the new bunch later, but safe to say, it’s not just teddies in the mix. Additions to the Zarglian Invaders and introducing the sentient mutant plants, the Klorzids.
As ever I welcome comments, thoughts and suggestions, let me know how you think.
