She'd probably work okay in a "western" culture, as would Tuilin. Too bad about the split skirt, but hey....

I *hate* figure creep! I want figures made nowadays to be usable with my 1970's era Ral Partha figs, but I've given up any hope that this will ever happen (probably some "15mm" figures are getting close...)

From what I can see from the picture, the legs certainly *look* like they are in tight-fitting trousers - otherwise, she's got some major cellulite going on! Spears with some sort of stop below the head are common - it ensurs that the spear doesn't get stuck in the target (a standard spearhead of 8 inches or so will kill a person just as much as shoving a 6 foot length of wood through their body...). Some Saxon spears have very definite "ears" as part of the spearhead, which were used in "fencing" with the spear, as well as stopping penetration

Of course, why a "hunter" has vambraces and greaves is another question...
