"Bors the Axe" - Otherworld Fantasy Skirmish Character

"Bors the axe", "The Bald Blade of the North", "The Loinclothed Avenger", the man has many names and he came up with them all. Other folks just call him Bors or Mr. Bors, and try to stay away from him mostly, especially when he's drinking (which is most of the time).

Bors likes to boast and to fight and he does the latter well. His boasts are mostly clumsy attempts since his grasp of the common tongue is a bit weak, but no one ever tells him that to his face.

Bors is an Uthgar barbarian. He wields a a great two handed axe which he calls "The Axe" and wears a loincloth to all occasions and all year round. He's come to the north for he has heard there is trouble in Deadsnows, and also gold. Bors is planning to protect the innocent, slay the evil and take all of their gold (which was probably not stolen). He figures the innocent are sure to pay him for his services as well. They're supposed be digging gold from the mountain, so the pay should be good.

Descent 2.0 done and Dreadfleet Doneish

Even though I haven't been posting a lot, I haven't been totally idle. This is old news already, but I got the rest of the descent miniatures done and it's better to document that here, than let it look like there's some unfinished business.

Also I've now got most of the Dreadfleet ships painted and I got those done in time as well so that we got to play the game in the Winterwarcon (fancy name for an annual get-together) in January. Sadly I didn't get there in time because of a family issue, but the guys told me that it was a fun game. I guess I have to find time to play it too sometime in the future.

Here're the pics, so you know it did happen:

Rest of the Descent stuff


Weird egyptian ship

I'm pretty sure I painted the arabian style ship and the dead fish -ship as well, but there didn't seem to be any pics of those, so I guess we just have to assume that this (painting the ships) didn't happen.

Ogre Mage for Otherworld Skirmish

It's been so long that I almost forgot how to write. Been quite busy, so my limited hobby time has been spent on painting and playing games and sadly this means no time for blogging. I've reached a point where I must post something else this blog will totally die so here goes.

I'm actually in the middle of basing and finishing armies for my 15mm Hail Caesar in addition to painting a Freeborn force for Gates of Antares. After several nights of monotonous basing or painting for the same forces, I went looking for inspiration elsewhere (I don't know if this is a universal condition, but I tend to get bored fast if trying to paint only for one game at a time).

Rummaging through the bookshelf Otherworld skirmish got my eye which lead to rummaging through my unpainted stash of reaper miniatures. This is what happened:

 So it's only partly done, but I promise to glue some flock and tufts on it tonight.
