Being of work with the Lurgy occasionally has advantages. For instance you get to catch up on Jeremy Kyle and have a look at dozens of old Cowboy films that seem to be the daytime diet of all the movie channels. If you have the motivation though you can try and get some figures painted such as half a dozen Bugbears. This hairy little mob is made up of 5 of Otherworld miniatures and one lonely citadel example.
The citadel guy actually came all the way from Oz and was missing most of his left arm which had to be replaced with and orc arm and some greenstuff.
I thought, rather than show you the usual army shots I'd do some size comparisons with some of the troops.
First up we can see the Bugbear towering over a hobgoblin.
Even bigger when compared to a half-orc.
Going toe to toe with the black orcs.
And hunting the troll on the head (he is a little troll)
For those of you who don't know Bugbears are a D&D monster that belongs to the Goblinoid family. They are just bigger and hairier. Citadel did a small range back in the distant path which included about 8 warrior variants and were sculpted by Jes Goodwin. You can see them on this page at stuff of legends. There were also a small family group made at the same time which consisted of a shaman, a female and two young bugbears. A final Bugbear was part of the ad&d monsters starter set. Ironically those pages were originally constructed by the guy that started Otherworld miniatures. Funny old world. If you fancy using Bugbears in your warmer armies you could use this lovely little set of rules put together and illustrated by Zhu Bhajie.
