Tales from the Borderlands - Athena Model & Props Pack


(Before anyone asks... I have no plans to make a NSFW version)

This model/props pack includes not only Athena, but also her Aspis (shield) and sword!

All of these models feature improved, hi-res textures and dynamic outlines.

The shield has a body group for the energy ring to allow you to toggle it off or on. It is also rigged so that all the moving parts of the shield are poseable. There is even a sequence (courtesy of Cyristal-Artist) to deploy the blades on the shield.

I fixed the bone weights on Athena's model so that the bones in her left eye only control her left eye, and the bones in her right eye only control her right eye. Likewise, the left and right pupil bones only control the left and right pupils, respectively (for some reason, all the eye bones were weighted to all the meshes in both eyes, making it impossible to pose the eyes).

Athena comes with options galore!

  • 5 skins (default, dirty, hickey, scarred, scarred & dirty).
  • A body group for her eyes, allowing you to choose between her Telltale Games style eyes with scalable pupils (which I recolored to better match her Borderlands eye color), or Borderlands the Pre-Sequel style eyes (without scalable pupils), or glowing red eyes (also without scalable pupils).
  • A body group for her head, with options for having her hood down (default), her hood up, her hood up with her face in shadow (pairs best with the glowing red eyes body group), no hood, plus 5 of my favorite custom heads from Borderlands the Pre-Sequel!

Athena also has attachment bones for her shield and sword.

There are no face flexes (the dynamic outline does not play well with face flexes), but there are face bones to pose instead.

Athena should work with LowRider's Borderlands rig script (found here:!zhN1DSzJ!Lw--p92iwL86DVTCa6FbOrqiu7SOTL8KcPAvGkORrhI).

If you use any of these models, send me a link to the finished project; I'd love to see it!

Do not repost/upload these models elsewhere... certainly do not claim it as your own work. Please ask before porting to a different format.


Athena (and her Aspis/Sword) and Tales from the Borderlands belong to Telltale Games and Gearbox Software.



You are my literary hero right now. I'm planning a fight that needed two greek mythology characters with guns for a fight i'm working on. Is it okay if I have Athena fight in an animation? Soon as I animate, I'd like to give you credit and link to the video! PS it's Athena VS Pyrrha.

Pre-Sequel version of Athena is so much better than 'The Secret Armory of General Knoxx' version.

@FarrOut94 - Absolutely! Definitely send me the link, I would love to see that! @MissSonicBoom - Agreed. I much prefer Athena's look (and character/personality) in Pre-Sequel and TFTBL. @SFMMods - Thank you! I have plans to port lots more. Currently have Hugo Vasquez about 90% of the way finished. Just have a couple of his accessories to finish and he'll be ready to go.
