Pin-Up of the East

This Orc woman's arms are manly? Not really. She's just athletic. Reminds me a bit of Julie Bell:

Or even Serena Williams:

The Furies, Succubi, Matriarchs, and Orc Shamans are all fighter units, and all have toned to athletic looks. It'd look silly otherwise, especially in the case of the orc. Besides, she has Succubus blood, and look at their bodies.

Orcs are supposed to be strong and ugly. The orc women should be strong and ugly too. This female IS strong and ugly. Period.

I don't disagree that she's ugly - just not on account of her physique. Logically she should be pretty though due to Succubus blood. :P

I don't think it makes her tough. I'd say it makes her smart enough to outwit a bunch of stupid men, like Godric, Finidan, Raelag, and the wizard.

Well, that's the point.
She has a very nice body. Well defined muscles, wiry, shapely, an athlet's body with very nice breasts (t*ts is a quote).
You know, I'm a pretty old fart. When I let my hair grow at the beginning of the 70s when I was in high school (or what would be high school), so many people made fun of me (and of course of everyone who was growing long hair). It looked "girlish". If you lived in an area with low density of people, i.e rural areas, it was infinitely worse. In the US it was probably STILL worse. Today, you can have your hair as long as you want, no one will call you "girl" because of long hair.
I'd thought the time had long gone that someone would call a woman "looking like a male" because the had some muscles and not really big breasts. Obviously I was wrong.

Well, I know the right answer myself, but I decided to stay diplomatic and do not write it.

So you would rather play a game filled with ugly crones and guys who look like clones of Quasimodo? In which case I guess get rid of all factions except Necropolis. :)

Please do share. I doubt it'll be the right answer, but go ahead.

i don't get it either but my point of view is to have everything as realistic according to histroy as possible. but let's say for instance just for argument sake that hell did exist as portrayed and myths and stuff did exist i really doubt that hell would have any female on their ranks it's just not right according to the bible angels were male i never heard of a female angel and a demon is just an angel gone wrong so how does it work now they somehow get a sex change in the process and become a female really the entire idea of a succubus and queen isabel going in to battle and woopin a dragon's ass alone is just so silly to me i am immideatly discrouaged if a game's main character is female i either don't play those game but in heroes's case i made an exception because of the other campaigns with the 1:5 ratio.

To cut your argument right off from the beginning, all I need say is that HoMM has its own universe, and thus need not adhere to canonical mythology. Succubi do arise in myths though, but I'm not sure whether they're in the Bible at all. As for Angels, are they not genderless? And btw who gives a damn if Isabel is a woman? This stuff is not based on history - it would be pretty dull if it were. It is fantasy - don't like it, don't play fantasy games.

listen superwoman who "cuts my argument right off from the beggining"i am well aware of the fact that its not based on history now if we were to open a poll on people's meanings on whether angels are male and female angels nothing in between i am pretty sure that male will win.but this is a place for leaving comments not to debate i play homm i can play quite good in fact any faction any series any time.i am always open for a quick hommV ubisoft.com duel.

btw the orc woman is good as a matter of fact i just loved them back in neverwinter nights hehe

ahem just to fend off the moderators i meant with superwoman "morgauth"" or whatever the name is got a little...confused jaar

did you also mean to post three times in 8 minutes or so? there is an edit button :)

Read your post again, that may help. You said the arms and the sixpack would make her look like a man and she had small t*ts. Now, obviously that means that for you a supposedly female being looks like a man with a sixpack and strong, wiry arms, even though those are no sexual characteristics - they are gender neutral. If they remind you of a male you are strongly biassed. Furthermore, you are constructing a link between t*t size and feminity - another dubious thing to do. Lastly, if your linebacker coach in highschool had t*ts, why does SHE look like him (a woman like a man), but HE like HER (a man like a woman)?


holy god. what is going on here? and believe me JJ I coulda quoted others before writing what I'm about to, but yours was more fun to do :)

can we all just think about what this has turned into? for christs sake, we're discussing a piece of artwork of an orc woman, wearing very little, and it's become about religion, sex, stereotypes and just about everything else .... sh!t

there have been personal opinions expressed on both sides and we're arguing here like a bunch of schoolgirls (another stereotype) if you don't agree - fine, don't get your panties in a twist ....

sheesh

Hein:

1) I'm not a woman.

2) I do not care what polls would reveal. Only accuracy.

3) Good for you.

I am still a bit puzzled why someone who is into accuracy would play a fantasy game to begin with.

Funny how some people react and have to reply whenever somebody believes in traditional things....I too see muscles as manly and don't want women to have that.

And what does sixpack mean here? Means six beers for me :p

And why are you calling it tits all the time? We can say breats or hooters instead.
