I needed a bear for Frostgrave and rather hurriedly ordered one from Northstar. It arrived in the post just as I found another one, from Reaper Bones, in the plastics mountain. Typical…
One of the great things with an extensive tin- and plastics-mountain is all the cool minis you have there and those minis are often useful when you find out that you really need a x for the game next week. The downside is to remember that you actually have a x in that mountain… So, now I have to bears.

The Northstar one was a bit of a disappointment as it was full of mould-lines and needed a lot of work to be presentable. The pose is okay though, and it turned out well in the end.

The Reaper bear, sculpted by Julie Guthrie and from the Reaper Bones 77216 Companion Animals set, is a much cleaner sculpt and gives you a smaller but more detailed beast. This one is my favourite of the two, but I guess both will be used in our Frostgrave campaign.
