I've been doing a lot of painting over the last few months but very little posting. I'll probably do some image dumps at some point, I do like searching for other people's versions of the minis and I'm sure others would like to see mine. Anyway, when I went through my collection of painted minis appropriate for PCs, I saw very few armored women. I did two from Bones III, and Anduriel from a Lean-to-Paint kit - he's almost certainly supposed to be male but honestly you put a person in that much armor and they're pretty androgynous. 🙂 I did some minor modifications to Skara - if you're wearing armor no-one should ever see your cleavage (you keep your heart there!) and I suppose she may have been wearing a dress, but she had *&^! spaulders so I sculpted her a breastplate and gave her more-or-less-full armor. She was wearing an elbow cop on her sword arm, but not her other, so I gave her one. I also added a few more thigh plates to cover up a bare leg. Not terrible, though a bit rough - I should probably have built the breastplate out more to make it look more angular. Sculpting is hard! As far as painting goes, I gave her a fairly normal skin-tone but blue hair. I'm quite pleased with how the hair looks. Amusingly enough, when I started painting Mara I thought she had an angel on her shield. I guess not. 🙂
In some alternative Bavarian highland, a medieval Maria Von Trapp draws breath to sing, only to be viciously cut down by this severe and armored woman's wicked blade. "No happiness!" she seems to say. I remember using a maddening mixture of murky metallics on her armor to get the shiny blue, but it went on too thick to show many details and wash would not stick to it. Ooops. :-/
