These are my favorite figures...see my earlier post about giving away a few of my unpainted samples.
The figures are often based on characters from Brian jaques REDWALL series of books...we are watching the cartoon series together and I am reading the 20 books in the series.
The scenario called for two opposing forces to seach the woods for two idols (Zuni Indian fetishes I got from my inlaws for Christams). The idols are protected by some very unpredictable bear warriors that could join either side or remain neutral.
|His hare warriors advanced in two groups vs the rats and weasels|
|A hare prepares for a bold jumping attack against one bear guarding the otter idol...an epic fail would see the hare squashed by the mallet wielding bear...and then put in the stew pot|
|A bear joined the hares on the other side of the field and caused havoc amongst the weasels|
|The first kill in the game saw this weasel whacked by the mace weilding bear|
|The rats finally get organized and take the otter idol|
|The last weasel (I named him Jorge) fights against the odds|
|Despite lossing their leader, the rats escape with an idol|
|Jorge the Weasel lasts for a while and takes out 2 of his 4 attackers before falling|
|End game...we called it a draw since the rats escaped with one idol and a hostile bear guarded the last idol (the badger) despite the rats/weasels taking heavier casualties|
