You might think that being a ghoul queen means you are as awful-looking as a necropolis ghast. But as is often the rule with monster pairings, the male humanoids are ferociously muscled slavering monstrosities and the females look good in tight dresses. This ghoul queen fits the bill, with a plunging neckline and a wide range of bone-themed attire, from the massive blade she carries to her hairpiece.

Calling this figure a ghoul queen does her something of a disservice as she makes a compelling female necromancer. Also, the ghoul queen miniature in metal form originally came with servants -- you know, ghouls -- which is kind of important...after all, what's a queen without servants?

She'd make a great miniature to represent Rebma Rakoba (née Rebma Usher) from my book The Well of Stars:

A tall, thin figure glided out of the shadows. Rebma Rakoba was dressed in a long, tight-fitting dress of black velvet that flared at her wrists and ankles. She wore a leather bodice that was meant to raise her small breasts, but only succeeded in exaggerating her overly thin frame. A porcelain white mask in the shape of a smiling harlequin concealed Rebma's features and she wore long black gloves on her hands. Her hair was wound into an elaborate bun with a fan protruding from the back, which gave her the appearance of a macabre peacock.

You can purchase this miniature at Amazon.
