Khurasan's Ursids are a cracking set of figures: what's not to like about huge bears with BFGs and wearing sunglasses? Unfortunately, they didn't sell well, so it's unlikely that Jon will expand the range.
This left me with a single platoon of infantry but, fortunately, Stan Johansen also produces a range of bear-style 15mm sci-fi figures. Admittedly they are a little smaller than Khurasan's Ursids, necessitating the adoption of the greater Ursid/lesser Ursid paradigm, but their mix of small arms and grav platform-mounted support weapons are quirky and lends itself to the idea of a militia formed of lesser Ursid mining engineers. The only problem is the postage to the UK!
