Miss Fortune, the Bounty Hunter
Miss Fortune, the Bounty Hunter

Miss Fortune, the Bounty Hunter is a charismatic champion with quite a playful attitude. In spite of this, her skins are limited to different set of clothes and guns; sometimes also hair dyes. If you need to make advice rain to strut in a nice dress then take a shot at her skins’ review.

Cowgirl Miss Fortune

Category: Regular
Price: 750 RP
Concept: Miss Fortune suggestively dressed as a cowgirl and wielding huge revolvers.
Model: Major model changes for Miss Fortune and new model for her guns.
Particles: No new particles.
Animations: No new animations.
Sounds: No new sounds.
Splash Art: The fitting sunset that covers the whole piece is a good way of setting it apart with a unique identity. Neither background or foreground are impressive but they do their work well. The room seems like a mix between saloon and house: the door in a side of a the front and a portrait on a table are peculiar choices. Although, the sunrays passing though holes in the collapsing walls and the shadow of the batwing doors on the floor are good touches. Miss Fortune looks nice bathed in sunlight, which also highlight the folds and surfaces of her clothes and skin. Sadly, there are a few problems with conflicting perspectives, like the tables relative to the floor or Miss Fortune’s face with respect to her hat. In general, it’s a really good piece with a distinct feel despite its several perspective problems.

Conclusion: Cowgirl Miss Fortune is a skin with a very specific appeal, showing Miss Fortune’s lean figure. From the waist up there’s nothing new, even Classic Miss Fortune shows as much cleavage. However, the lower body presents us with a mix of chaps and trousers that stand out for their inadequacy to preserve the modesty of this bounty hunter. To be fair, the look isn’t unfitting for Miss Fortune’s playful and alluring personality. Still, it closely treads the line between excess and good taste. That aside, the cowgirl look is nice: the clothes are well designed with decorating fringes plus the revolvers and hat, though oversized, are nice. All things considered, Cowgirl Miss Fortune’s a good skin for fans of the Far West; as long as they are accepting of the revealing outfit.

Waterloo Miss Fortune

Category: Regular
Price: 520 RP
Concept: Miss Fortune wearing a stylized early 19th century French military uniform.
Model: Moderate model changes for Miss Fortune and new textures for her guns.
Particles: No new particles.
Animations: No new animations.
Sounds: No new sounds.
Splash Art: Plunder on a ship is the whole background offered here, which seems more fitting for a pirate than a French soldier. It could be said that Miss Fortune is a pirate hunter and that the French navy would hunt pirates at the time but it still gives a confusing first impression. At least the two-thirds of background visible are well drawn. Miss Fortune’s depiction is rather plain: she simply stands proud among the loot. The clothes are alright but the hair looks too solid. Moreover, the face appears a bit flat and the lack of light on her legs makes them unnecessarily drab. Overall, it’s a splash art that serves as a portrayal but doesn’t stand out in any way.

Conclusion: Waterloo Miss Fortune passes for a stylized version of a French soldier but the concept isn’t a good fit for Miss Fortune. There isn’t much connecting a bounty or pirate hunter with the early 19th century French army. Even if you consider privateers or corsairs, the golden age of piracy was long gone by the time. In spite of that, the appearance isn’t bad but it can escape the heavy adaptation to Miss Fortune’s personality. Therefore, Waterloo Miss Fortune is a good skin if taken for what it is because there’s little elaboration in both concept and execution.

Secret Agent Miss Fortune

Category: Regular
Price: 975 RP
Concept: Miss Fortune dressed as a seductive spy and wielding silenced guns.
Model: Major model changes for Miss Fortune and new model for her guns.
Particles: No new particles.
Animations: No new animations.
Sounds: No new sounds.
Splash Art: The mist covered background is suitable but disappointing. As a setting it’s quite good: dead enemies lay among shot tables at a pub as an unscathed Miss Fortune stands among the havoc. However, the depiction is subdued to the point of enervation: not a single element is clearly shown, everything is covered by a blurring fog; except Miss Fortune. She look quite nice but the portrayal, while adequate, isn’t fine. The dress’ colours and smoking guns are characteristics that stand out yet in general Miss Fortune doesn’t appear lean and agile. On the whole, it’s a passable portrayal with a good concept that is wasted by a sloppy execution.

Conclusion: Secret Agent Miss Fortune literally places her in the shoes of the archetypal femme fatale of spy films. It definitely suits Miss Fortune and works perfectly with her personality, manners and abilities. The dress has a elegant blue tone and fantastic pattern while the guns look sleek and lethal; all befitting for her. Unfortunately, the skin shows it’s age: the hair seems inflexible and the shoes’ textures make the laces and top-line look unaligned. All things considered, Secret Agent Miss Fortune is a classy skin and unless you can’t see Miss Fortune without a hat it’s a great choice.

Candy Cane Miss Fortune

Category: Legacy
Price: 975 RP
Concept: Miss Fortune wearing a Christmas-inspired clothing and wielding candy canes.
Model: Moderate model changes for Miss Fortune and new model for her guns.
Particles: No new particles.
Animations: No new animations.
Sounds: No new sounds.
Splash Art: Candy Cane Miss Fortune’s splash as is as unimpressive as it could be. The background is simply a house surrounded by snow with its door open. Fortunately, Miss Fortune is going in as she’s hardly dressed to fare weather conditions fitting for snow. The house presumably shows a Christmas tree, presents and associated decorations but it’s so unclear that more than anything it’s a guess. Miss Fortunes’s depiction isn’t convincing either: her visage lacks her usual playful mood and seems serious and annoyed. The dress is passable, like the boots and only the bottom of the left candy cane seems to be well drawn. Truth be told, it’s a splash art that doesn’t seem to try to fit Miss Fortune nor portray her in an attractive way; a complete letdown.

Conclusion: Candy Cane Miss Fortune is a simple and uninspired Christmas skin. The dress, hat and boots are as plain as they could be while the candy cane guns are just alright. In fact the skin seems to have been made with little effort. In spite of this, the overall aesthetic is attractive as few would look as good as Miss Fortune wearing a Christmas hat. In conclusion, it’s a skin with some value besides being a collector’s item for dedicated Miss Fortune fans but in the end not much would be missed.

Road Warrior Miss Fortune

Category: Regular
Price: 520 RP
Concept: Miss Fortune as a post-apocalyptic wasteland inhabitant wielding sawed-off shotguns.
Model: Major model changes for Miss Fortune and new model for her guns.
Particles: No new particles.
Animations: No new animations.
Sounds: No new sounds.
Splash Art: If there were a competition to determine the most unclear background this piece would be a top choice. Doing some guesswork it seems like a rocky wasteland with a city in the distance and a sand storm in full activity. Still, it could also be the dilapidated interior of a building. When the setting can’t be determined as being indoor or outdoors it’s a bad signal. Surprisingly, Miss Fortune’s portrayal is actually rather good. The clothes are well delineated as well as her shotguns. Her hair flows believably and her pose is suitable even though it feels a little forced. On the whole, it’s a disappointing splash art that places a good depiction of Miss Fortune over a grainy mess.

Conclusion: Road Warrior Miss Fortune is a demure looking skin that still manages to appeal with its interesting concept. The wasteland survivor appearance is accomplished but the limited colour palette is unusual considering that any piece of clothing would be suitable, regardless of colour, in a post-apocalyptic realm. Nonetheless, the pastiche of different clothes and elements work as an effective Mad Max reference. The sawed-off shotguns are an integral part of the look. They are well designed but appear too new and clean as well as similar to each other; the band on the left one is a good touch but insufficient. Furthermore, the barrels cross section is elliptical instead of round, a peculiar choice for a firearm, and they sound like guns. In the end, Road Warrior Miss Fortune looks too tidy and pristine for a wasteland inhabitant but makes up for it with a fine execution of a good concept at a low price.

Mafia Miss Fortune

Category: Regular
Price: 975 RP
Concept: Miss Fortune dressed as a member of the 1920′s Chicago Outfit wielding Thompson machine guns.
Model: Major model changes for Miss Fortune and new model for her guns.
Particles: No new particles.
Animations: No new animations.
Sounds: No new sounds.
Splash Art: The blur covering this alley seems to indicate a fast movement but Miss Fortune is standing static. Therefore, this is just another splash art with a fuzzy background. The alley or street is partially visible but it’s unnecessary to place the focus on Miss Fortune in such forceful way. Miss Fortune looks quite good: the clothes are cleanly delineated and even reflect the machine gun’s light; though rather unconvincingly. The Thompsons’ are well drawn like her hair and the stance is appropriate; even her face matches her activity. In conclusion, it’s a good splash art but due to some avoidable issues it isn’t as good as it could be.

Conclusion: Mafia Miss Fortune provides a refined Chicago style that is attractive yet suitably inhibited for a member of a crime syndicate. High boots, stockings, a mini skirt and matching jacket plus a, maybe too big, fedora hat join a pair of stock-less Thompson machine guns to provide an appealing and elegant style for Miss Fortune. Considering the accomplished aesthetic it’s surprising that the Tommy guns don’t sound like automatic firearms. Nevertheless, Mafia Miss Fortune is a great looking and designed skin that any fan of fair dressed ladies will enjoy.

Conclusion

Miss Fortune has quite an assortment of skins, as such she covers many concepts though it’s all limited to clothes and firearms. Mafia, Road Warrior and Secret Agent Miss Fortune are the recommended skins. They all have distinct and appealing looks and in the case of Road Warrior also a low price. It’s a pity that Mafia and Road Warrior Miss Fortune’s firearms don’t have a matching sound for her shots but that shouldn’t detract from their great looks.

Cowgirl Miss Fortune isn’t a bad choice, especially if you don’t mind revealing outfits, but due to that it may not appeal to everyone. Finally, Waterloo Miss Fortune may be a good skin for army or Napoleon Bonaparte fans but the concept is a bit of a stretch.

  1. Mafia Miss fortune has a different auto-attack sounds, just like Mafia Graves.

    • Maybe they’ve been added because we thoroughly checked how her Tommy guns still sounded like single shot pistols. We’ll give it another look, thanks for the notice.
