We Bare Bears of Konflict '47

My Soviet Ursus Infantry as inspired by Cartoon Network's We Bare Bears. At 22 pts each these are a steal, only need 3 more for an effective squad. I've played them once and they can tear apart Nacht Jager but run at the first sight of flames.


We so cute, we so cuddly.


In Soviet Russia, We Bare Bears rip you to shreds.




Grizz, the leader of the pack.


Panpan, in touch with his feelings.
Ice Bear will rip your face off.

All right back to my place vor beer and Vodka, Comrades!

The Bull Mammoth


I bought my first K47 Russian Mammoth this week and was kind of disappointed looking at it and thinking this would be so much more awesome if it had 6 legs. I present to you the Bull Mammoth (Бычий мамонт). Thanks to Warlord Games for providing the extra legs free to complete my conversion for this Tank walker. I'm contemplating putting an even bigger gun on top because of the increased stability. This thing is even more unstoppable because if it loses 2 legs it can still walk across the battlefield. I'm think maybe a T54 with legs might be the next Medium walker I could attempt.

Underside of Chassis Carved out and some pvc piping and styrene rod added in. I was going to add washers but ultimately didn't need to.

The Glottkin

Here he is. I'm almost fully happy with him. He was an absolutely delight to put together and rather individual entityx3.

Morbidex Twiceborn

He's finished, I've been recently doing a bit more work with the Nurgle but yet have not updated this blog in a long time. I present you Morbidex Twiceborn. He likes Nurglings a lot, in fact he creates Nurglings, A mini Plaguefather. I consider him the weakest of the Maggoth Lords but boy was he fun to paint.
