Dzu Teh

The miniature wargaming system Heroscape has a Thaelenk Tundra Expansion set, which contains ice terrain and three yeti miniatures!

In the fantasy world of the game, they are called "Dzu Teh".

It is interesting to note the origin of the name Dzu Teh. In the real world, it is another name for the Himalayan Red Bear and translates to "cattle bear". According to the Dzu Teh's Wikipedia Page, it is:

"often associated... with regard to the Yeti myth. The Dzu-Teh, a Nepalese word, has been part of the Yeti, and later the Abominable Snowman (circa 1921), phenomenon from its early inception due to the location of its Himalayan habitat."
