Female Stormcast models

Recommended Posts

My daughter (aged 7) has expressed an interest in AOS, and she likes Stormcast, but I don't know that much about the range.

I'd love to show her some female representation on the tabletop, so my question is, please can you point me towards which kits have female models?

Neave Blacktalon is one that I'm aware of, and one of the original Shadespire warbands was a woman too (I have that model because I played a fair bit of Shadespire).

Are there any others, particularly as options within regular troops kits?

Thanks for your help!

PS I know that anyone with a helmet "could" be a woman, and I'm sure that a lot of my daughter's will be, but it would be nice to have some explicitly female representation too.

There's also one in one of the other Underworld sets; the Cursebreakers, two or three in Sequitors, Evocators have two, etb castigators has one, etb sequitors, etb ballista, naeve, and I think that's it. The rest I think are not diverse.

Forgeworld makes some alternate stormcast resin heads - of which one set is alternate female heads

Considering that real armour tends to totally obliterate most gender identifiable traits this means any stormcast could be female with the right head attached.

There's a named hero called astria solbright which is an easy to build kit

Quite a few of the limited edition models are female though they'll be hard to get your hands on: larissa shadowstalker, lena stormspire.

The newer storm cast models seem to include more female representation overall

Real armour does not hide human form entirely if it is fitted right (but SC armour isn't fitted right anyway), because it needs to be as slim as possible in the waist, and there are female Stormcast that look different (their armour, though boobplated, looks more sensible than strapping on a metal barrel).

FW has female heads, but at over a euro per head, I'd find others. If you can live with somewhat smaller heads, the Frostgrave Wizards 2 set has 40 heads, 8 bodies, a cat, rat and owl and a ton of arms for less than that price. I have fitted a Frostgrave head to my female Cursebreaker and it doesn't seem worse proportioned than the others.

Thanks @zilberfrid - and of those, do you know which ones have female heads (without a helmet) please?

I do not, but a quick look at GW's website could tell you. At least the etb sequitors and one evocator. But even their golem head differs from a male one.

Pretty much any of the units from the Sacrosanct Chamber are going to have female models mixed in there, and several of those (Sequitors in particular as I recall) have female heads available.

Yes everything released after AoS 2.0 has female versions, so basically anything from the sacrosanct chamber. I expect it will be more common going forward.

Heroes are

neave blacktalon (helmet or no helmet) 

Astreia Solbright (really cool kit) 

Knight incantor (both Soukstrike and mortal realms figs are female, no helmet) 

Units:

Sequitors (helmetless options, unit leader is female in standard box) 

Etb sequitors (female leader, helmet less option) 

Sequitors from soulstrike (only 1 female fig, monopose, helmet only) 

Castigators (1 female fig, helmet) 

Soukstrike castigators (female leader, monopose, helmet only) 

Evocators (2 of 5 female, leader can be female, one of the coolest female  figs in the game, helmetless options) 

Evocators on dracoline (female leader option, 1 of 3 female, helmetless option) 

Ballista (no helmet on female fig) 

 

Think that's all the options, good luck

Also if you want some female heads you can take a  look at adepta sororitas, if you have a friend who plays this army he's probably have tons of naked heads with badass features and variety of haircuts and expressions (bald head, square cut, hooded head...etc).

That's what i did to create some home made custom heroes and it's something i recommand.
Also you can probably find some of those on Ebay at a pretty low price, look at plastic kit such as seraphim for example, they have great heads and there's not a lot of futuristic elements on them.

They scale okay, they're small but not too much so.

yeah it creates a silhouette kinda clunky but it is more or less invisible if you pick a hooded head for example.
Also haircuts are you're best firneds i guess, a little bit of sculpting work over a bald head can help to create a very nice braids or half shaved cut

thanks to @Mattrulesok for saving me the trouble of digging through my comments for the list I typed out a long while ago.

the only additions are the Liberator warband (female sword/hammer liberator) and Stormsire warband (female evocator)
