"Ax Faction- a company with Vikings riding bears and Elves riding giant rabbits. Creativity and passion fused effortlessly into a range of miniatures"
A little later in the year, I cursed myself for not making a note of the company as a few of their miniatures would have been perfect for a few systems I now play.
Fast forward to Salute 2015, and I am happily reunited with the company, and to be pleasantly surprised with newer miniatures ranging from Badgers with Axes... HUGE Orc warlords and other premium quality sculpts. I had to tear myself away not to walk away with a miniature as my spending for that day had already hit the dizzy heights.
Fast forward again by 5 minutes and my good friend from Gazette Games, Grant, meets up with my group and shortly gives me a proposal (ooooh errr *wink* *wink*).
He would like me to apply my painting Skills to a miniature from Ax Faction for his review website and as payment i get to keep the model.
Didn't need to think about it, I said deal and he gave me the miniature.
Considering I'm aiming to get myself aViking Mordheim/Saga army... I was ecstatic with what I was given...
A Viking riding a mother fucking BEAR!
My thoughts instantly turned to his Hordes counterpart Borka, a troll who also rides a bear into combat.
