Hello Dakka. I'm not looking for a specific model, so much as any mini with the following attributes:

US Based distributor/store/whatever
Heroic scale
Female human
bare head - no tiaras, helmets, etc
"realistic" full body plate armor - no bare midriffs or leather. Plate over chain is OK, leather pants or boots not so much.

armed with halberd/longsword/greatsword (this option isn't so important if the weapon has a long handle and can be easily cut off)

I've browsed through CMON without success in finding this, but my search-fu may be weak.

Anyone have suggestions or know a good one offhand?

Thanks!

Hasslefree - I know there are some US distributors out there - can someone in the US post a link?

In terms of realism, you can't get much better than Tom Meier.

It's a Female warrior in Lamellar and chain in 30mm scale.

I know you asked for a bare head, but I'm awfully fond of the Human Death Cleric from the defunct Chainmail line.



Also from the same line, a female cleric:

Not a great sculpt, but adding on some green stuffed hair goes a loooong way towards making it a lesbian knight. And it's in full armor, though the armor lacks realism.

Speaking of hasslefree, there's Tiriel. Dunno about a US distributor though.

The Imperium of Man is able to traverse the Warp with difficulty when their Emperor concentrates from his golden life support machine and lights the way. Unfortunately, because the Emperor has the attention span of the average 5-year-old Pokemon fanboy, this means that many an unfortunate Imperial ship has had the WTF WHERE'D THE LIGHTS GO experience, which in the Warp is invariably fatal.

Couldn't you just do a head swap on a normal knight and assume that the
figure is female? It's not like anyone in armor would reveal hips or cleavage (not
that I'm an expert in realistic armor, realistic female figures, or realistic fully
armored female figures).







And the last one was a "duh" moment for me. Why not just buy Eowyn from
GW and paint her?

I considered that, sure. It's not only about the customer's figure, per se, as I'd like long flowing hair, and doing a head swap would mean that the hair won't lay across the body correctly, and my GS skills are average at best.

But it's not completely unrelated, either. These are the ones I liked the most:
