Also if Netflix releases a show about a town where one brave woman takes up the sheriff mantel against a group of bandits when the men are all to afraid, I wouldn't be surprised if the dressed her just like this.
Actually, they did, and she looked like this:

I don't have a problem with a mechanical reason for choosing Lawman for such a mini. Designers make little compromises like that all the time. But I do agree with Cap that she doesn't quite look the part.

This, to me, is the wrong reason to make her a Lawman and seems to me to be the biggest (only?) one to do so.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

With respect, caps - when I picked up the mini, it looked incredibly obviously (to me) like a western mini and very much a lawman. Maybe not the Sullivan sort of lawman, but a more chaotic good person as opposed to his lawful good. I’m not really sure how she could look more like one, given that she’s a woman and probably wouldn’t have been given a badge.

As a counterpoint I’d also present Murphy.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

I'm with PK here.
PK, stop worrying about getting past SoV. It's not worth it. Your custom is already good, and the class is important for theme and synergy. Personal bias gets in the way of 50% of potentially good SoV nominations, as far as I can see. It ain't worth it.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

James Murphy is Indiana Jones with a shotgun. He could pass for a cowboy, but nothing about him explicitly says "Lawman".

His character bio doesn't even say, or try to imply in anyway, that he's related to the law.
Quote:
James Murphy has left trouble in his wake since he left Five-Strings, Kansas at the age of 13. Living on and off the roailroads, using only his guile and his whip, James Murphy is his own boss, his own leader, and his own worst enemy. The only thing worse than a man with a whip is a mean man with a whip.
I'm with PK here.

Yeah... James is actually seeming more like an Outlaw there than this lady.

Any chance we could get some pics of the mini with the lawmen?

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Unfortunately I submitted her before I left on a big move, and my figures are at home with my brother.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion



Considering the figure is "Gunslinger", she reminds me of Sharon Stone in the Quick and the Dead. I wish she had a hat on, but oh well. With my VC vote, I would be fine with saying she is a lawmen.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Oh, Id prefer if she had a hat too.

Also I went through my phone and found a couple images of her from when I was testing Clayton. These arent ideal - ideally youd want like a front view shot of them together, but hopefully they help in some way.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

FWIW, ultimately I agree with Kinseth. If there's a mechanical or thematic reason for her to be a Lawman, I can buy it. The mini doesn't quite look like it, but it's not so far off that it's not acceptable.

With that said, for my part, I'll bow out and leave this thread to its purpose.
