Ta.

On my desk, apart from the archers.
Still got to start those. ;)

Out of interest (assuming you're allowed to reveal it) are they "high fantasy" Amazons or "vaguely historical" Amazons?

Techno

I'd describe them as vaguely historical, Matthew.....Not what I'd call high fantasy.

(......And they haven't got their 'lungs' out. ;))

Haha good to know, would definitely be interested in that, find a lot of the Amazon models out there tend to be more than a little impractical...  :-\

I'm using some female looking figures from the newish sarmation cavalry for "very historical" amazons in my Trojan war project, but would be fun to do a full army at some point if they fit more into the historical/mythological frame than the 13 year old boy fantasy frame!  ;D

Wait ... are you telling me "real" Amazons DIDN'T look like this .... TIL! :D

No I mean just look how high that quiver is sitting on her back, there's no way she'd be able to draw arrows from that in any sort of effective way!

I'm still rather hoping for something a bit like the old Runequest box illustration.


... but we've been down this path before ...

No hair, just a red head.   (Thank you Tommy Cooper - and apologies to Mrs Orcs who I'm sure has a lot to put up with.)

Despite my lustful interest in females with ginger hair I have never had one for a girlfriend, much less the chance to check "Collar and Cuffs" :d  (however this is on my bucket list SSHHHH!!!!! ) By the time I get the chance (if ever)they will have all gone grey. :(

Mrs Orcs is a typical Amazon, Tall , very longs legs and a real Blond.(as opposed to the majority of women with blond hair on their heads being "Aeroplane blonds")

I would have a lot of incentive to keep going!
