I’m far from an expert on Dungeons and Dragons, it’s one of the few geeky properties that I just never latched onto, but I’m certainly familiar with the nature of Orcs and mages and knights, etc.. Plus I just like awesome action figures and obviously these fit that mold as well.
The female Orc Conqueror had at one point been called the Warband Leader (if I remember correctly) but upon release she is simply the Orc Conqueror (like the first figure) but in the female gender. Ever since the release of the first series, with figures like Precurse Medusa and Eurayle I’ve really enjoyed the functionality of the female buck in the HACKS figure line. The narrower limbs retaining the same solidity and fluidity of movement is very impressive, and the rocker ankles work remarkably well. Unfortunately the peg holes on the feet continue to be an issue even with these new feet and it was a challenge getting my Orc Conquerors to stand on their stands.
As with any of the HACKS figures out there, these Orc Conquerors are sculpted and designed immaculately well. Great construction, near flawless articulation, and some excellent color choices combine to create yet another new addition to your Series 02 Vitruvian HACKS family and one that’s very much worth checking out.
Interestingly, they did make this version of the Orc a slightly different green skin color than her male counterpart, but she still blends with the rest of the clan really well. Like many of the figures being released these days, this female Orc comes with two terrific heads, one with a sculpted-on skull helmet/facemask and another without one. Both are fantastic sculpts full of character.
If I have any real complaints about the look of the figure, it’s that compared to the male version, the female version almost looks a little too polished. The male Orc has a much more “rugged” wilderness look, like it’s got battered, worn armor and the hide of fur covered animals as its clothes. Meanwhile, the female Orc has glossy, polished armor and a very decorative belt that makes it stand out somewhat with its broken down counterparts.
That being said, the figure still looks really great.
The female Orc Conqueror comes with two heads, an Orc shield, an Orc knife & club, a belt with two armored hip covers as well as the Medusa armor with a set of gauntlets for the other arm. I love the accessories here, though as I mentioned in the review, she does end up looking a little more advanced and regal compared to her male counterparts, but she’s written that way as well in the figure bio. The accessories are really good overall and add some nice spirit to the figure.
Another great figure from Boss Fight Studio. She uses mostly existing armor but manages to add so many new, interesting twists to them that the figure ends up looking and feeling very new. It helps that the new legs and heads are fantastic as well.
Really great end result.
