[ Description: A colour image of a barbarian woman with pale skin decorated with tattoos that match her long red hair. She wears only a pair of leather boots, armoured loincloth, a pair of bracers and a shoulder guard. She strides towards the viewer, a sword strapped on her back and a large axe in her hands. ]
[ A full length colour illustration of a pale skined woman with long auburn hair. She has a tall, lithe build that her chain mail armour doesn’t obscure; the way the mail hugs her figure, in conjuction with the design of her fur trimmed knee-length armoured boots creates the definite impression that she comes from the sort of advanced society that employs the retro-futuristic aesthetic so beloved of science fantasy writers. Heavy-duty shoulder guards overlap an armoured collar and chest plate that protects her breasts; steel grey and trimmed with gold, they are matched by her full-length bracers and complimented by her angled guilded belt from which an empty scabbard and a sea grey loincloth hang. She is striding towards the viewer, drawn sword already held in her left hand as her right hand moves towards to bottom half of the grip. ]

Bare legged with lace-up calf-high boots, she wears a leather bodice and mid-thigh skirt affair with ornate round breast cups, banded mail around the midsection and a poilcloth hanging from her belt. A scabbard sword and a quiver hang off the back of her belt, and a round shield is carried on her back. ]
