We’ve featured Warhammer Total War 2 on the blog in the past. In fact, we featured a Dark Elf lady with a ridiculous hat in a bingo, and here is a… well, apparently, it’s a witch variant. According to the description of this piece, the developers can combine various heads, torsos, and legs together to create “hundreds of variants.” Look at this variation!

Much creative.

Sooo much diversity! Look at them go with all those infinite,
completely distinct
variations! 

It’s totally not like

when I first checked the source site for this

I was confused why exact same design was repeated over and over…

Warhammer Battle Bikini Brigade (and more)!

This was the first image in the rotating slides for the article about Warhammer: Total War.  It doesn’t get much better.  Later in the article we have these two Dark Elves.

Even his frickin’ FACE is covered, but for her?  Armor?  NOOOOoooooo. We get… whatever those things are on her boobs that are going to gut her like a fish if she bends over and can’t possibly stay on without glue or piercings.  I guess all her armor budget went into that hat.

OTOH, after showcasing the horrible, I wanted to showcase the one good female armor in there:

…but you have to scroll through tons of images (including more bikini armors) before you can find this one.  And I can’t tell for sure if it’s a trick of the light or if she actually has a bare middrift because reasons. [sigh]

Personally I think the greatest display of priorities in these designs is this piece of concept art which could almost be “spot the difference” game:

(And in case there is any doubt as to whether this is the artist or the studio/Games Workshop’s decision, I invite you to compare and contrast with the other works in Evgeniya Egorova’s Artstation gallery)

Yeah.

As is so often the case with Warhammer (and many other fantasy settings), there’s so many things to unpack in these: Bikini armorEvil is sexy, and of course: Nipple armor.

The worst part is that I can’t even bring myself to be surprised.

Warhammer Total War 2: Dark Elf Sorceress

thenightmarerider submitted (and Ozzie re-bingo’d):

I was watching the Dark Elves trailer for Warhammer Total War 2. I heard a fantastic feminine narration over the the dark elf on the right kicking ass. Then it zooms out and shows that the feminine voice was actually the dark elf on the left.

No bingo, but damn is it ever terrible! I can just think of the many excuses people would have for this as well. “It’s just like the tabletop game!” or “Dark Elves are Sadomasochists!”

Apparently only the female dark elves enjoy receiving and inflicting pain so much that they wear as little as possible? Yet another case where it would be more practical for a spellcaster to be naked.

https://youtu.be/zB6FaGBz0Lo Here’s the video link for the full trailer. It looked so amazing until the Sorceress came and spoiled it all!

It actually does get a bingo when treated with the most recent version of the game card! Let the dancing Vegeta commence!

Seeing this game’s penchant for big, silly headwear I wouldn’t be surprised if the defense for her armor was that the costume direction is “supposed” to be ridiculous… Amazing though how it always turns out to be the skimpy kind of ridiculous only for women.

Have you seen the heroes for Warhammer: Vermintide? It’s an upcoming Co-op Horde Mode type game similar to Left 4 Dead. The two lady characters are pretty fantastic. There is a middle-aged badass fire wizard and an elven archer who is covered head to toe.

Given Games Workshop’s usual design policies, which are less than optimal, I’m going to assume this is more Fatshark Games’ doing.  Thankfully it looks like they took a lot of inspiration from Left 4 Dead as well Warhammer.
