Meet Samantha Swords, winner of the Longsword Competition at a World Invitational Tournament. Dear Fantasy artists and Game Artists: THIS IS WHAT A WARRIOR OF THE FEMALE PERSUASION LOOKS LIKE. Note the total lack of stupidly huge bumpy metal bits on the front of her armor. There's a reason for that. You see, stupid boob plate armor would kill you. Anyway, I felt she needed her own post on Feminist Monday. She's my new hero. :) In addition, it turns out she's not the only bad ass woman that placed in the tournament. Have a look.
