Because thats what I got painted, no connection between bears and this holiday.
I couldnt even think of a proper "pun"ny title... alas.
Onwards to some yummy pics and some light fluff (and maybe some hints at future developments here on the blog!)
There lived an Owlbear!
This is an ADD81 - Owlbear.
From back in the day, when Citadel made minis for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons.
There are 3 major variants, along with 4 head variants, for a total of 7 bears.
I would love to have the others, without having to pay exorbitant collector prices.
These hairy hill goblins have thick fur and padded feet.
Perfect for sneaking up on enemies!
But today, they arent hunting the usual Dwarf, Breelander, Elf, or Dale caravan.
They are here to make a pact. An alliance!
It is Thanksgiving, afterall...
The target is within sight...
The Shaman calls over the Chieftain and they both approach the goal of their quest for today.
At least thats the Shaman's slogan.
The Chieftain doesnt take any chances and decides to win the Owlbear over with...
Give up half your hunting meats to the big Owlbear!
There you go, right into his savage maw!
Consider it an investment.
The Owlbear, inbetween gulps of thanksgiving meats, speaks in broken Bugbeareese about the little ones...
Little ones? Could they be good allies to join up with, as well?
Created by a young Dark Elf sorceress as pets, long ago.
Sadly, like most pets, they were abandoned in favor of new pets by their master.
The Quaglings had to live in the caves of the Misty Mountain Pass... without guidance and comforts (or treats!)
They learned to survive on the occasional caravan passersby... Dwarf, Man, or even Hobbit!
The Dark Elves, The Night Elves, or the Drow as they call themselves.
These particular Drow are the Gelflings of Gundabad.
They have relocated here in the Misty Mountain pass to start a new domain of terror.
But that was long ago, and these are different Elves.
All it takes is one little neck scratch from Guard Maiden to win them over.
Ah, but arent those little bears too trusting for their own good...
Together they shall share in all the bounty and loot that passes over the Mountains.
Cured Meats, Pipeweed, Bugmans Brew...
Prosperity is coming for the Misty Mountain Raiders, and they shall take it!
