Why? why? why? I hear you say. The simple answer is "How the hell do I know?".
Ok, ok, I've been painting up a few wild animals for my 15mm FIW skirmish game, instead of painting up the units I need to play the game, (lots more French line needed). I thought I'd take a break from the normal hum drum of red coats and Napoleonics and get something else painted for a change. The 3 bears where an Ebay impulse buy a couple of months ago, I believe the figures are from Magister Militum, I think I paid 99p for them!!
Whilst painting one evening, with all thoughts wargame running through my simple head, I came up with the idea of adding some animals to my FIW project, just to add a random factor to the rules,
Somewhere in the deepest darkest forest.......
"A Ranger company is trying to sneak up on an Indian encampment, they move past a strategically placed rock and out jump the three bears, minus goldielocks of course, the bears then create havock, kill a few Rangers and alert the sleeping redskins that their foe is a'coming".
