The things you didn't know was a thing until somebody mentions it and then... Well I don't know what then but I mean French Battlemaids?!? Really!?!

(Not quite how I pictured them, but, okay)


I posted on April first what do you think?


I think there's enough manga images to shows its an actual thing.

Yeah, but are you going to buy a box of them? and if so why? :lol: ... No, seriously why? :?:

While both battle maids and there male counter parts have shown up in Anime, Manga, Western animation, Comic book, and even some live action shows hundreds of times there just isn't a real big presence in strategy games. There might be a market among table top RPG players, particularly the BESM crowd, but I think making a box them is bad marketing move at this point without some strategy game that makes buying two or three boxes of thirty figures a good idea, which I think should be our procedure for future set proposals.

I wouldn't. I wouldn't watch a cartoon of them either.

I might be persuaded to look at a few pictures of maids in French uniforms fighting each each other... but that's a topic best left for another forum.

But be careful of asking too many why questions here when it comes to miniatures... Or I'm never going to get my rum and pirate space monkeys minis.

actually, I thought they would make excellent foes for the "Hordelings of Horror and Chaos " set proposal if done.

You know, after thinking about and remembering all the far out in the left field proposals I saw on the old forums my "Combat Butlers & Battle Maids" is not that bad of an idea.

Gardeners to my mind would be more inclined to close combat. They're used to handling big sharp cutting things.

Porters and footmen seem more likely as heavy weapons guys. Just saying.

I'm thinking Gardners as heavy weapons and demolitions would work best, think about it, they can work with heavy equipment and fertilizer , wheel around a wheelbarrow with a rocket launcher in it, carrying around pots with grenades in them and so on.
