Author Topic: Vikings vs. Owlbears (Horisont II project) *Table runed! 25/11*  (Read 47867 times)

This November a group of flawless brilliant intellectuals (myself included) are hosting the Horisont II miniatures convention in Esbjerg, Denmark (ferry from Harwich, airport nearby too).

As the insolent snobs that we are, we expect it to be the best convention in the history of history.

http://sites.google.com/site/horisontesbjerg/

Sorry.  lol

Oh well. My own project for this convention (at least the one of them) will be this: Vikings vs. Owlbears. It's still in development and I'm kind of coming up with the idea same time as I paint the miniatures.





The idea is this basicly:

"Vikinger are totally cool. The purpose of their life is to run amuck. Vikings are the best to run amuck. Ever. Their world map is written in blood and their hobby is to wage war."

- Old northern saying.


The Viking chieftain Taoregorn and his trusty vikings (Lars, Bjørn, Jens and others) take to the seas from their home settlement of Røvede. Somewhere between Denmark and Lindisfarne they get caught in a violent maelstrom of purple voodoo magic. Perhaps it is the King of England's witch wife who's conjured up the storm or perhaps it's just Loke playing a trick on Taoregorn. Who knows?

Either way the good men of the longship Skithögen are washed ashore of some strange and mythical place. Being vikings their first instinct of course is to gather their axes and head in land to loot and pillage.
What they find in the forests of this island is not to be spoken of.

Yeah! I have a load of Saxons and celts/picts that could be added into the mix for some DAFtness (Dark Age Fantasy), they too are based in the 'extra dimensional zone of blackness' manner ;)
I've used SOBH to good effect with them as they've chased off goblins and other creepy nastys.

Yes for once I'm actually half pleased my self. One part of getting anywhere is understanding one's limits and screwing them. They're not completely done yet though as foot wear and all the metal parts needs more work.

I only base coated the metal as I give the minis a dull coat that ruins the metal.. so I'm going back to it again.

What about the owlbears? ;D

Fear not! They're in the making.

The Vikings do look great. Can't wait to see the owlbears and the outcome of the game.

But Duncan! It was my hope that you would play the part of the "Defenders of Christianity". Perhaps monks with vegetable clubs?  lol

Oh well.. I think we have to play some SOB at Asgaard this 17th. I got the dungeon expantion and an actual dungeon too.

There then! No cause for alarm. All the words I've used are proper viking.  lol

Luckily Taoregorn's first ship "Bajsdraken" went under in a shit storm of hail.

Well I've got a scots force too, that could easily be made into an irish force with the addition of a monk or too (or a præst ;) )

Don't forget the addition of quick wit, good looks, and a way with the lasses as well. These are the things that distinguish we Irish from our Scots bretheren. ;)
