Brother Vinni Provide You With a Damsel in Distress

November 13, 2013 by dracs

All the oldest stories have a hero rescuing a damsel in distress and there probably aren’t many who are more distressed than this new Female Prisoner from Brother Vinni.

Woman Prisoner

Now let’s just get this out of the way first, I am not happy to see women victimised in such a way. It is a genuine problem in modern gaming, especially as there aren’t nearly as many depictions of men in similar situations.

Speaking in purely gaming terms this model does make a good narrative objective marker. I could think up number of scenarios for Mordheim involving this miniature. Maybe she is a noblewoman who the Witch Hunters are planning to burn for witch craft, but a group of mercenaries have been hired to save.

What is your opinion of Brother Vinni’s latest sculpt?
