When this set was released it came along with a fully clothed (and slightly sour faced) authentic looking Saxon noblewoman miniature as well. I think the blurb said something about that being the "real" version of Godiva.

This model is clearly a late 20th century interpretation of an idealised female form, so I think she needs moving to the Conflicts that Came in From the Cold board.
Appropriately enough given her clothing choices.
I dunno, maybe 'big battalions' is more appropriate.

Having experienced Late 20th Century Coventry I would think Post-Apocalypse Adventures is way more apt.  ;)

Seriously though, right board imo.  :)

+1 for 'Right board IMO'
Family home, on my father's side is Coventry. I spent 37 years there & still have relatives & friends there.
If she was around today the ride would concern students, as (it seems that) just about all the building in Coventry
is for student accommodation.
It has been postulated (ooh errr Matron) that she rode stripped of rank, not clothes, but that doesn't make for as many tourists.
