Anne's Epic Babe Challenge

I've had my eye on a figure for the last month, but have had no good reason to buy her.


Isn't she pretty? Well pretty won't cut it with The Hubby so I've had to create a reason to buy her. Hence my Epic Babe vs Babe Challenge.

As part of my story, "The Wyrm of Connemara" I've painted a babe for both Fran and Ray's characters. One is a pale beauty from Hasslefree Miniatures and the other a dark temptress from Hell Dorado. Both figures are very sexy. But you know those two. as soon as they see their babes, they'll start arguing about who's babe is the sexiest.  And none of us wants to put up with that now do we?

This Challenge is designed to prevent the inevitable bickering between those boys by allowing you and the guys at The Miniatures Page (yes, I've been moonlighting) to vote on which babe is the sexiest. And it allows me to buy the figure I want. "How is that?" you ask. Well this is how.

The new figure is a "bonus babe" If Ray's babe wins the contest, then I'll write an "encounter" between his character and the "bonus babe" into my story. And likewise for Fran's character if his babe should win. Either way, I win. And in the end that's all that really matters to me.

On Wednesday, November 7th, I'll be posting pictures of both babes and there will be a poll in my right sidebar to allow for voting. The polls will be open until Saturday, November 9th and the winner will be announced on Monday, November 12th.

I won't be posting anything between now and the 7th and I may not be in much as I've got new music that I have to learn.

Well folks it's Friday and it's been a heck of  a week for everyone around the globe. Now it's time to put the world and all it's problems on the top shelf and do something that really trips your trigger. I know I will.

  1. Genius! I do love a solution where everyone wins - ever considered a role in international politics? Have a great weekend Anne.

    1. Michael, it's all the energy I have to manipulate The Hubby, there's no way I could take on a country. And I'm too volatile-just ask Fran!

  2. I love this idea Anne and I really can't wait to find out who wins, hopefully you find a role for this wonderful lady because I've decided that I love her!

    1. I just couldn't get this sculpt out of my mind after I'd seen her. The lines are so nice. I'll find a role for her, now problems there!

      Elsie-hahahahaha

  4. Well I know who I'm voting for, lets just say he's not Irish!

    1. Ray, you're already doing it. We're voting for the babes, not you or Fran. I painted both figures so either way I come out on top! I will tell you this-the figure I got for you has a bit of a Zoey D. look about her.

      Elsie-see what I have to put up with!

    2. They are like little children, huh?

  6. "I've had my eye on a figure for the last month, but have had no good reason to buy her."

    Fantastic! I have this phrase ringing in my head most of the time and, strangely, the model in question tends to change on a monthly basis!

    1. I spend so much time cruising around looking at figures and when one grabs hold of me, I just have to have it. Need has nothing at all to do with it. After she comes in the post, there will be another sculpt I just have to have!

  7. Have you seen her boobs? Seriously , marvellous. My favourite detail is the bow, it just looks really dainty in comparison to the rest of her.

    ReplyDelete

    1. She's got an impressive rack I know. Fantastic. The bow is the main appeal to me on this figure. The lines on that are so graceful and the suggestion of movement is elegant. I also love the tattoo on her face.

      Delete
  8. Well I'm sure whoever wins both boys will be happy. I think that's pretty much a guarantee.

    1. They're good boys and really they have had to put up with me longer than anyone else on the blogosphere. Sometimes I don't know how they do it, so they deserve a bit of extra nice treatment from me.

  9. I will be voting for the babe that has the bigger boobs or is showing more skin!

    1. Such a dude! What about weapons??

      Delete
    2. I really am interested in seeing which figure carries the day because they are so very different in style. Some men like wicked sexy and some like gentle, demure sexy. Both are showing skin, they just do it differently. Big boobs may not carry the day here, there's elegance as well and some of these gamers will vote for that.

      Elsie-Rays babe has a wicked sword in her hand.

      Delete
    3. I'm all about the weapon, myself. Unless of course it's my figure - you made me some awesome ta ta's!!

      Delete
  10. I only have one question. Why are they ALL so buxom????

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. These figures are sculpted by men and mainly for men to play with in games. It's a simple matter of knowing your market and knowing what will sell. And it's also an idealized artistic expression of the female form.

  11. Getting all tricky at your sea, the cat likes that. Which ever one has to most fat to chew is the one that my vote will go for hahaha

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Gross! But, what can I expect from such a wretched beast as yourself?

      Delete
    2. There's no fat to chew on these babes. Like I told you though depending on who loses and on my mood at that time, the loser may get a fatty McDingDong as a consolation babe.

      Elsie-I did find a figure of a Viking woman by Hasslefree out there and she looks just like the Cats Viking woman. She's just so hideous that I can't bear to buy her. That feline offender should be bagged, tagged and dumped in the ocean.

      Delete
    3. Well then the biggest boobies will win, works for the cat too.

      LMAO that be funny as you'd cringe just trying to paint her, thinking of al the fat the cat has chewed.

      Delete
    4. Oh, Anne, you must buy her! It would just be to funny. Maybe you could have the cat get sick from chewing on the blubber? A sidebar of a story??

    5. One day I'll do, just for spite!

  12. I really like Hell Dorado miniatures and have several of these to paint...

    1. She has-oh God bless her. I will have to thank her for that. I desperately need to held a well painted figure in my hands and see how things are done. It will help me so much as a painter. I'll pop of an email to you this evening.

      Thank You!!!

    2. I have indeed Anne, and it's a pleasure to "spread the love" by having my prize sent to you instead. :) x

  14. Will the boys be offering any bribes along the way?

    I can't wait to see what we get to vote on, Anne. Have fun and enjoy your music! Hopefully, I'll be painting =)

    Replies
    1. I'll offer to give Ray a kick in the crackers?

      Delete
    2. Bribes will do no good on this one because both figures are mine!! These boys will have to marshal their own forces if they want the bonus babe. I'm painting three bodacious females for them, what more do they want from me?

      You can kick him in the crackers Fran, but do it for sport. I painted both mini's so this is about me dammit!!

      Delete
    3. awww, Anne, no bribes? Fine *sighing*

      It is Ray and Fran...they may want quite a bit from you, they are men =PP

      Delete
    4. No they don't owe me a thing. I owe them, they've been putting up with me for longer than anyone on blogger. And sometimes, I don't know how they do it!

  15. Lurk and Ray will be so happy about this :)
    Happy music sessions, Annzie!

    1. I hope they like their babes. Those two have put up with my volatile nature for a long time and they deserve some special treatment from me.

      There's a song I have to sing while I'm playing and I need to make sure I can hit those notes perfectly. The song is All Is Fair in Love a tune done by Stevie Wonder. I've been singing while I play since I was a kid and it's easy, but this song is a little tougher to nail.

      Delete
    2. you mean you're the lead vocal in that song when your band plays it?

      Delete
    3. Yes, I sing the lead vocal darling. Been singing whilst I play since I started playing.

    4. that's delightful, Annzie!

    1. I'm going to be sticking pretty closely to this color palette. She'll be a good figure to learn some technique on.

      Thank you Vincent.

  17. I can't wait to see the options.
    I can say one thing about babe figures: they sell really well.

  18. They do sell well, but hey they're nice sculpts. I love painting them, so much color and such nice curves!

  20. Voting on boobies to see more boobies? That's a great idea! :-D And have you seen on the figure above what a big ....... sword she has! ;-)

    That's a real nice mini, Anne, and I can understand that you want to have it.

    I hope everythings goes well with the song and I hope that you have a very nice weekend!

  22. Yay! Boobies and Chickfights! Everyone's a winner! :-D

    ReplyDelete
  23. I must admit I was a little confused at first - I was thinking that you were saying that the babes were Ray and Fran's characters. Hmmm, well in a magical world, maybe they could be? *wicked grin*

    1. Hahahaha. I don't think anyone would vote for that!

  24. This does sound like some fun. I'll have my voting clicker ready.

    ReplyDelete
  25. sounds fun, will look forward to it...
    ... hopefully it will get the image out of my head of Fran & Ray in lingerie fighting over which of them is the sexier babe ;)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think what we all learned here today is that as long as you win, everything is okay. :)

    I'll be voting.. maybe.. if I feel qualified.

    ReplyDelete
  27. you were right I am even more confused today. hehehe well I don't surpose for one moment that the vote will sort it out. they will find another thing to squabble over.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thats a great idea and better that making Fran and Ray fight it out, lol

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think I'm still confused as to how this nets you the Hubby's approval to purchase this figure. I'm sure you've worked out all the angles, though. Also, I look forward to the story.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Great idea!
    I'll try to not miss the vote!!!!!!!

  32. I wouldn't say she's so much "pretty" as "badass." Look at that sword. I sure wouldn't mess with her.

    Good luck with that new music!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Great idea! I do think this Hell Dorado babe is gorgeous and that sword is epic. I'd have her on my zombie fighting team any time. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Great idea. Just wanted to say how much I'm enjoying watching you improve week on week. Really fantastic progress.
