Scaley woman with pointy weapon and blocking thing

Fantasy female warrior:



Tits and arse covered. Relatively sensible armour.

If you field an overwhelming force against a paltry number of defenders, whatever you do, make sure the defenders are not English!

Mmmm! Lovely!
Especially like how the scales follow the shape of her body without hiding her beauty!
The falcon on both helmet and shield... awesome!!

I feel like every day plucking off one of the scales, like an advent-calendar  :D

I am seriously blown away by this mini.

Being a huge fan of Dynamic Tiriel I've long been hoping for something in a similar vein to come along and this most certainly ticks ALL my boxes.

Practical looking armour, great pose and stunning detail.

Please please pleaaase make more, perhaps some bow or crossbow toting gals too.

I like this one a lot. Definitely one to paint with the shield arm separate to begin with. Based on the old group photo's she might be 40mm but is probably smaller.

 :lol: they also kind of look like leftovers from a whole punch too. A little too small though I guess. They look very well done.

That armour is very easy to make... it is simply a case of rolling up tiny balls of putty and squashing them flat individually.

You start at the bottom and work up, one row at a time, leaving the previous row to dry before doing the next one (so it takes ages).

For the best effect, you need to get everything under the scales sculpted to the shape you require because the scales will automatically follow the shape from underneath.

The hardest thing is getting the scales sharp-edged without flattening them too much and also getting all of the scales the same size.

Awesome - really looks like a Tom Mier sculpt to me. I'll be having one of those and a couple of others once I've saved up :D

I keep wanting to ask if we could get wings on the boots to match the helm :p. Not on the ankles 'though. Higher up but the turnovers makes them improbable.
