Boudicca by tamiart Boudicca by tamiart
Boudicca, Celtic warrior queen of the Iceni people of Eastern England. After the Romans took their land, stripped her, flogged her and raped her daughters, she led a rebellion against them, destroying several cities and armies in the process. Badass.

I will ignore the wrong time period for a kilt to exist for the fact that this picture is awesome, the colours are really nice and she doesn't look like some sort of half-naked greco-roman bimbo like people like to depict her.

It is said the very statues fell away from the gates, as though fleeing the enemy. It took not one, but several legions to finally slay the Iceni Queen. With but a handful of Celts, Boudicca made the mightiest empire of the age tremble.

And you captured the badassery well.

It's said "They that sow the wind, shall reap the whirlwind", Boudicca obviously wasn't thrilled at being oppressed and enslaved, having her lands stolen and watching her daughters be raped by the invaders, that fiery temper typical amongst Celtic folks came out in full swing as she paid the Roman invaders back for every transgression against her, her family and the Iceni, with interest!

A really fierce and brave Queen, no doubt here. Really love your work ^^ 
Your rendition of her is a blessing after the horrible, horrible "Fate/Grand Order" one (for your own sake, do not look at her). Many kudos!

And she pillaged three cities, killing, raping, and desecrating the bodies of 80,000 innocent civilians! Then she ordered her army of at least 100,000 to attack 10,000 Roman soldiers head on without any chance to flank. She even brought women and children to watch her attempted slaughter of the Romans. Of course, her entire army was routed and then annihilated because the spectators were blocking the path to retreat. Really badass!

Not a "all good" character and she lose, yeah, but a great one nonetheless. She gives Romans a taste of their own medicine, they were as brutal as she was.

She went on a literal bazerka. Destroying any chance of her tribe and family to pass on it's genes or it's culture. The Iceni made some of the best gold artefacts found in England and it's a shame it ended the way it did. The Romans weren't stopped, they went on to overlord the Iceni lands by giving them to their neighbouring tribes who had given in to the Roman jack boot.
