I am a fan of the “His Dark Materials” books by Philip Pullman, and ever since I read them I’ve wanted to get my hands on a miniature of Iorek Byrnison the panserbjørn.
I’d picked up a Copplestone Castings 28mm polar bear ages ago, with the plan to add armour using greenstuff but, since I’ve got very little experience sculpting, I wasn’t really that confident that I’d be able to do a very good job.
Well, I spotted this little beauty a couple of days back from Willy Miniatures.
It’s intended for Blood Bowl, but there’s nothing about the figure or its armour that means it won’t make a great Iorek.
Put it on the xmas list. I’ve been good. Now, who makes a passable Lyra Belacqua?
