Gigantic Water Bears (2)

Gigantic Water Bears (2)

Tardigrades, known colloquially as water bears or moss piglets, are a phylum of eight-legged segmented micro-animals. They were first described by the German zoologist Johann August Ephraim Goeze in 1773, who called them little water bears. In 1777, the Italian biologist Lazzaro Spallanzani named them Tardigrada, which means “slow steppers”.And they are so cute!

2 x single piece resin tardigrades.

They are 28-32mm long and about 15mm tall. As the real beasties are microscopic, these minis don’t really have a “scale” per se! Our range of other minis and scenics is 28mm scale and with those they fit as wolf sort of size companions. Some simple conversions and they can pull carts, or even be mounts!

Cast in highest quality resin, supplied unpainted.

Make sure to follow the usual resin precautions when prepping (be careful of dust, and wash in soapy water before priming)
