Narama, the Huntress of Men. During the ancient times of mankind, more than 5,000 years ago, the Undying ruled the world.

Among these demonic creatures bred by Arkhalla, the Undying Queen of Ur, there was one with no equal. One who became a legend across these bloodstained lands of Sumer. Narama, the queen’s most powerful weapon, was the strongest Undying ever created by Arkhalla. But deep in her heart, Narama concealed a dark secret she kept hidden for two hundred years. Her love for Bel, the Great Warlord of Ur… and her hatred for her Queen.

The box. It's thicker, so base included.

The front and the sides of the box.

First look at the contents. Secured packaging as usual. I must say, that there are not alot of accessories. However another archer is always welcome...

The contents. I like it that Phicen is letting collectors have more hands on interaction with the figure...that's the point right...

I checked some websites offering seperate items for sale, and i think the top can be taken off. However i couldn't really take it off...the button on the left shoulder doesn't seems to be the fastener for the top. Maybe have to remove by squeezing thru the body. The dress no issue. And if you must know, there is a sewn on black underwear.

The sickle sword is plastic. the arrows, are again, somewhat shorter than i preferred. The length of the arrows would not allow me to do better pose for the archer...

oh yes, when i accidentally dropped the arrows, one of the arrows' head fell off. I could put it back, but it seems to be loosen.

The main figure. The HS, well, another great design by Phicen. Didn't give me the feeling that she resembled any of the previous figure. Well done again in this department.

Well, putting on the accessories and armor onto the figure did not pose any difficulties. I just referred to the box for the pictures, and was able to dress her up in a breeze.

The base. No support stand to help me pose her. Nice to have though.

Nothing puzzling as to how to put on the quiver.

I like the hair fringe, allowing a different look when i put on her headscarf.

Thanks for the review. I have to say, I’m not feeling the pleather — looks way too stiff.

Thank you for the review and the informative images, some of which were also quite artistic in their dynamic poses (I love the last photos in particular). I actually liked the pleather in itself, although I think it looks far too neat (and, yes, stiff) to be realistic. It is sad that the arrows are too short for a more proper shooting pose, and the hood also doesn't seem to work very well (maybe they should have lined its edges with a wire). The sculpted sandals look rather masculine, but perhaps that is more appropriate for a female warrior character than the dainty versions we have seen before. Since I am not familiar with what (if any) art work TBLeague used to create the character, I suppose it is difficult to pass judgment. I did notice the reference to Arkhalla and the ARH logo on the box, so I imagine this is at least loosely derived from one of their characters, like so many similar products. As usual (with some exceptions), I'm not loving this enough to get it, but I like individual parts and aspects of it very much.
"Huntress of Men" made me think of "Maneater," and now I can't get that song out of my head...

The nonsense about Sumeria put me off. We know the names of hundreds of their gods and other supernatural characters and none of them are called Arkhalla. It wouldn't have taken much effort to base the background on real Sumeria. They had plenty of evil gods and demons such as Lamashtu, Pazuzu, Amashilama, Asag, and the galla demons (Pazuzu was the demon who possessed the girl in "The Exorcist").

I, too, get annoyed by all this pseudo-Mesopotamian nonsense, but consider this: wouldn't it be even more annoying if they took an actual character from Mesopotamian mythology and distorted that character's story by changing it with or interjecting all sorts of novel fantastical nonsense? So from that point of view I appreciate as much departure as possible from the distant historical "inspiration" -- it would have helped if they had also come up with a fictional city name and so on. One thing that helps (to some extent even here) is to set these things so far into the past that they are in the realm of prehistory, where there are no historical sources to be contradicted. I am reminded of the film 10,000 BC, which had plenty of issues but was ultimately a decent and spectacular (if unrealistic) adventure tale set in an unknown past, tapping into the (slightly-conspiracy) theories of alien gods, pre-historical civilization (in history, the Sphinx, in the movie, the pyramids -- which was arguably a violation of history), etc. But being so far removed from the beginning of verifiable history, even I didn't mind much.

That's what I greatly appreciate about the Conan stories by R.E. Howard -- "before" recorded history, and before the seas swallowed Atlantis. At that stage, you can do anything -- much like Tolkien's Middle-Earth.

I prefer Howard and Tolkien's approach as well. Create a new world and riff off historical cultures to flesh it out.

Not a bad looking figure, though, being a huntress, you do wonder how she has time to get to a dry cleaners and have her outfit looking so pristine all the time, LOL!

CHEERS!

Not loving the blue outfit or the feet much I'm afraid, but I do like the head, hands, arm and leg bands and armour, and of course the weaponry. One for a loose parts spree, for sure.

I've just bagged myself the head sculpt, in fact, which is why I'm posting (couldn't afford it, but it was the last one on ebay at anything approaching a reasonable price). The facial features remind me a little of the Sparta Warrior figure that changes hands for very silly money now, although the sculpt itself looks paler and the hair is shorter and a little less voluminous.

A nice companion piece for my Sparta Goddess Of War. Smile
