Legions of the Frozen North Doubles Down

The riders are astride their ursine mounts in June’s update from Legions of the Frozen North. Brennan gives a peek into the process of creating these figures, as the bears and knights are completely unrelated items that he’s putting together into a new configuration:

Three of the knights are demigryph[1] knights and three are regular knights.  I had ordered the DG bits but afterwards figured I could use the regular knights which I have a surplus of.  I added bed rolls from the Outrider/Pistolier kit to add ‘something’ to the back, snipped shields for back supports, and various banner topper or other bits to act as a pommel.  I think I might also try to get the sheathed swords on as well.  The straps are strips of paper that I glued into place and then struck on the idea of adding a couple drops of super thin super glue which wicked into the paper and then hardened making them more durable than untreated paper… and probably less likely to have issues curling or falling apart when the paint is added.
