Strike Witches 1991 Character Thread

Post by Piero on Fri 2 Sep 2011 - 0:42

I figured since we now have an entire forum devoted to SW, I thought it might be nice to start a Strike Witches 1991 thread devoted exclusively to the characters (of which there are an awful lot). I intend to post future updates here as well as maintain alist of the characters on danbooru (aside from ones who have only appeared in things like the uniform charts thus far).

Witches with Action Shots on Danbooru:

Patty "Maverick" Mitchell and Nicole "Goose" Bradshaw (Liberion Navy, F-14A Tomcat)
Alyssa "Longbow" White Horse (Liberion Air Force, F-15E Strike Eagle)
Tabatha "Ice Lady" Kazanski and Rachel "Slider" Kerner (Liberion Navy, F/A-18A Hornet)
Theresa Powers (Liberion Air Force, SR-71 Blackbird)
Lilia A Starikov and Ludomira V Varnavskaya (Orussian Navy, Su-33D Flanker)
Dorothy "Ghost" Zelko (Liberion Air Force, F-117A Nighthawk)
Judith "Reaper" Rudel and Dominica "Tinklehog" Rand (Joint Karsland/Liberion unit, A-10A Warthog)
Mirabelle "Illusion" Callahan (Liberion Air Force, EF-111A Raven)
Ryuuzouji "Dragon" Shouko and Oomoto "Red Grass" Sayaka (Fuso, Mitsubishi F-1)
Rosalie G. Clostermann (Gallia, Rafale-A prototype)
Ulriche Frieda von Richthofen and Nina Georgine Marseille (Karsland, Mig-29G Fulcrum)
Samira and Raniya Ali (Kingdom of Jazeera, Mig-21 and 31)
Gabriella "Missile" Lucchini (Duchy of Romagna, F-104S)
Deena Danirovuna Denisova (Orussian Air Force, Su-27)
Wendy Maloney and Khadija Nasir (Brittanian/Jazeeran Joint Unit, Tornado GR.1)

Witchs without Action Shots on Danbooru:

Air Witches
Samantha "Merlin" Wells (Liberion Navy)
Holly MacLeod (Liberion Air Force)
Liselotte von Schlöndorff (Karlsand Navy)
Gretia Hartmann (Karsland Navy)
Franziska Hartmann (Karsland Navy)
Claire "Bloody" Bradshaw (Liberion Marines)
Mishizu "Principal" Hojo (Fuso Navy)
Yuki "Flag" Tokugawa (Fuso Navy)
Berta Von Milch (Karsland)
Evelyn "Pounder" O'Hare (Liberion Marines)
Yuko "Euclid" Nabeshima (Fuso)
Marami "Cracker" Kuroda (Fuso)

Ashirinoa "Shine-Ray" Kanazaki (Fuso Navy)
Mifiyu "Frozen" Amago (Fuso Navy)
Chinatsu "Wall" Kosukabe (Fuso Navy)
Princess Shino "Crescent" (Fuso Navy)

Ground Witches
Olivia Christina Rockfield (Liberion Army) -unsure if this translated right
Mary Jane Patterson (Liberion Army)
Danielle Rosales (Liberion Army)
Kyoko Mary Ohishi (Liberion Marines)
Elisa-Herluga Hessler (Karsland Afrika Korps)
Ria Carius (Karsland Bundesheer)
Paula Wittman (Karsland Bundesheer)

And this is the latest update. Five retakes on previously done witches. You can find the old profile pics using the "parent post" links above the pictures themselves (some of the original profile pics also have associated action shots).

Tabitha "Ice Lady" Kazanski
Rachel "Slider" Kerner
Samantha "Merlin" Wells
Lilya A. Starikova
Yudmila V. Varnavskya

Anyone else see a pretty considerable improvement between some of the old pics and the new ones?

Yea. His art is getting better and better. He is compiling alot of 1991 Witches, not that I have any complains. Hopefully someone can translate the artist's comments.

I remain amazed that these imageboard people haven't thought of retaining some bilingual members as regular translators, ready to perform their jobs at a moment's notice. For a bilingual person, deciphering the text should be chicken feed - it should take only as long as it requires to read the untranslated text.

Another four new profile pictures, one of them a re-imagining:

Kyoko Mary Ohishi (Liberion Marines)
Evelyn "Pounder" O'Hare (Liberion Marines)
Yuko "Euclid" Nabeshima (Fuso)
Marami "Cracker" Kuroda (Fuso)

I really dig Yuko. The bow is a bit odd, but a rought translation of her profile using google seems to indicate that it's quite effective when used in conjunction with her magic.

All the new and revised profiles Ogitsune is putting up make me a bit tempted to try to snag a translator and send him a few ideas I've had, particularly a Gallian Navy witch who might compliment Rosalie rather well when he redoes her profile.

Oh snap. This is the first time seeing him do Ground Witches and a good job too. And I gotta agree with you, piero, out of the four I like Yuko the most. And odd as the bow may be, it somehow seems logical in my opinion since the Japanese think of bowing more as an art than a sport. Yuko gives me a sorta noble look with the bow there.

One of the things I like about Strike Witches 1991 is that the vast majority of the characters are sixteen or older.

At any rate, I've let myself get a bit behind.

New Witch
Elisa-Herluga Hessler (Karsland Afrika Korps)

Newly Profiled Witches
Wendy Maloney(Britannian/Jazeeran Joint Unit)
Khadija Nasir (Britannian/Jazeeran Joint Unit)

Witches with Revised Profile Pictures

Samira bint Ibrahim al Jazeera (Kingdom of Jazeera)
Raniya Ali (Kingdom of Jazeera)
Dominica "Tinkle-hog" Rand (Liberion/Karsland Joint Unit)
Mirabelle "Illusion" Callahan (Liberion Air Force)
Judith "Reaper" Rudel (Liberion/Karsland Joint Unit)
Aliyssa "Longbow" Whitehorse (Liberion Air Force)

Holding off on a few others (including one where the artist took one of my suggestions cheers) until some translating gets done.

Here's that bit I was holding back until it could be translated.

Rosalie G. Cloistermann (New/Revised picture)
Nathalie Sagna (New Witch)

Nathalie is based on a suggestion I sent with the help of a translator. The artist drew her based on a preliminary "do you think you'd like to do this concept" description I sent before I had a chance to send a more detailed description of her, so I'm hoping to convince him to make a few changes to her description, namely expanding her history and personality and changing her Striker from a Super Etendard to a F-8 (I had a F-8 in mind when I suggested she use a heavy machine gun -the F8 was nicknamed "The Last Gunfighter" because it mounted four 20mm cannons at a time when fighter guns were seen as being on their way out).

As for Rosalie, she was around well before I started making suggestions to the artist, but she seems to look better every time he draws her. I actually rather like her despite the fact that I wasn't too fond of Perrine (its worth noting however that her description indicates she has a much nicer personality than Perrine did).

I got pretty behind on these. On the plus side, the delay meant they got translated before I put links to them here.

New Tank Witches

Ria Carius (Karsland Bundesheer)
Paula Wittman (Karsland Bundesheer)
Martina Meyer (Karsland Bundesheer)
Fatima Tahira (Kingdom of Jazeera Army)

New Air Witches

Alicia Eriksson (Baltland) -Another one based on one of my suggestions. Smile
Anna V Vashchenko (Orussian Air Force)
Annie "Gauntlet" Wrightman (Liberion Air Force)
Ashirinoa "Shine-Ray" Kanazaki (Fuso Navy)
Mifiyu "Frozen" Amago (Fuso Navy)
Chinatsu "Wall" Kosukabe (Fuso Navy)
Princess Shino "Crescent" (Fuso Navy)

(Note: Technically the SW 1991 stuff refers to the Fuso Navy as the Fuso Marine Self Defense Force.)

New Profile Picture

Teresa "Holus" Powers (Liberion Air Force) -Pretty sure this should have been "Horus"

Strike Witches 1991 seems to be largely a character/world building exercise, though the main artist (the one who started it and did all the images I've linked to in this thread) has done some rough black and white sketches of various scenes from the Gulf campaign. I haven't brought those over to Danbooru though.

If you're looking for something more story driven check out the lead artist's other project, the Strike Witches 1940: Battle of Britannia doujin.

New Witches:

Rana Yusef (Jaziran Navy)
Ernestine M Nungesser (Gallian Air Force)


Witches with New/Revised Profile Pictures:

Olivia C. Rockfield (Liberion Army)
Danielle Rosalez (Liberion Army)
Mary J Patterson (Liberion Army)

Anyone know Japanese? With the new format of including characters profiles in pictures I can't even copy and paste the character profiles into google translate for some of these.
