"This Atalanta was exposed by her father, because he desired male children; and a she-bear came often and gave her suck, till hunters found her and brought her up among themselves. Grown to womanhood, Atalanta kept herself a virgin, and hunting in the wilderness she remained always under arms."
Pseudo-Apollodorus, Bibliotheca 3. 9. 2
I thought I would use this figure for Atalanta, the Arkadian princess, huntress, and occasional Argonaught. Exposed by her father at birth, she was suckled by a she-bear before being found and raised by hunters. She sailed on the Argo with Jason, defeated Achilles' father in a wrestling match, was the first to wound the Kalydonian Boar, and only agreed to marry a man who could beat her in a race. All in all, a tough little cookie. I will use her as a Legend in Of Gods and Mortals:
Atalanta (90 points)
Forester, Free Disengage, Shooter (Long), Good Shot
As a huntress, I wanted to give her a pretty muted look, keeping the pallet restricted to browns, accentuated by white for her diadem and trappings. Not a bad wee figure, for all that she is a fairly simple sculpt. The painted up quite nicely and, if I do say so myself, the camera does not really do her much justice.
