Interesting is that graphic with Conqueror dont have antyhing in prow resembling lanucher of great spears or antyhing like that ( graphic was creaed well before (it was in collected visions) Conqueror was shooting them - in novel Betrayer)
I alvays disliked female commanders of ships... how many female commanders are in current US navy for example (not menationing medieval / renessance age). Ship is no place for a woman. But i dont want to divulge into this topic
Not served myself so can't comment, friends have so will ask them
Its something that has happened from time to time in history - going back as far as Artemisia
Yes the one in the second 300 film - no she was nothing like she was depicted - she was very sane, advised against the whole battle, famously admired during the battle by the Persian King of Kings, managed to not only surivive but dispatch one of her rivals ships and came out of it smelling of roses.............married one of his sons
I like "women warriors" - I am a big BattleTech fan for instance - yeah its a fantasy and often not terribly realistic but then so is the whole of 40k
I like the very many women in 30 and 40k fiction and feel its a shame they are often ignored on the tabletop - hoping that this is different
On the Conqueror - yeah the ship does not have visible launchers but it does fil so well with the World Eater Primarch and how he wants to do battle.............
