or a whole brotherhood / sisterhood of them.


I know this video game link only through Youtube YouTube link but the little I saw has gaming potential -even for the 18th C.

- The mission: to lift the curse changing periodically a lovely young woman into a murdering monster. Not an uncommon curse YouTube link -think also, without the murderous aspect, Ladyhawke and the old French tale YouTube link of the White Doe YouTube link If you don't want magic, for a 'Sci-Fi explanation' the 'curse' can be the long lasting effect of a Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde-type drug, triggering cataclysmic crises by night time.

- The character: in a Lacepulp alternate 18th C. where monsters exist -even if parents "My mommy always said there were no monsters no real ones but there are" and governments deny knowledge- a (secret) society of professional, alchemically-enhanced YouTube link monster hunters is almost compulsory.
Figurines-wise, a swashbuckler in 18th C. clothes: a 'leader' from a pirates range, a highwayman or more 'topically' a 'Gevaudan' type such as Fenryll chasseur de sorciere


link (also Brigade Games?)
Now in 'alternate' 18th C. not a few women take a 'manly' life and profession, so what about a sorceliere? The A Touch of Evil game link contains suitable (if not great) minis of both sexes
available separately but there is a rich choice of female fighting minis that could be simply converted -give them a basket-hilted broadsword and a crossbow slung across the back and a quiver of bolts (supposedly some silver-tipped, some of naked wood), accessories widely available in 'medieval' ranges -Freebooter & others also have pistols, to be hanging from the waistbelt or / and strapped to the thighs, blunderbusses, muskets link
If in suitable size, the 'NOT Anna Valerious"

'Lahmiane' link looks like a natural choice.

You had already linked a more fantastic (or "stupid", as some opinions went) potential member last week: TMP link

laugh yes, if given a tricorne grin
Indeed a touch of… lightness / fickleness -even of comical relief- would be welcome in the grim atmosphere surrounding such character.


Geralt of Rivia, the Witcher, already has 18th C. equivalent (shades of the Eternal Champion?) Vol de Galle the Marquis link


= link


Both are more and more eaten away by the observation that not a few humans, specially in the High Places, are worse than the monsters they fight. Thus, yes, a touch of… perhaps not too serious feminine tenderness wink would lighten the inherent gloominess of the character.

Not hard, with the hat she's already got on.
