pan Bartek Drejewicz, Polish multi-talented and versatile illustrator and painter, has been creating colorful images of historical fighters with a twist (to my fellow American viewers: perhaps a PG-13 parental guidance rating :) ). The image above is a Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth Amazon - :)
In Bartek's interpretation these historical soldiers become female warriors, fighers and soldiers and the author took many liberties with their costumes and uniforms. They range from ancient warriors to the Wild West fighters. Bartek took more than some liberties with their historical appearance yet preserving their look quite nicely.
More imags can be seen on Bartek's Facebok page

These are some of the fighting 'amazonian' pin-upish soldiers - Napoleonic Era 'Amazons' mostly
and others eg:
I would like to stress that all these images are copyrighted and can be had at Bartek's websites in a fine printed version or as originals etc.
Fast forward 2 years, and there are the figurines https://www.facebook.com/valkiriapoland/?fref=nf
Sadly, there is some project that clearly draws on Bartek's ideas , even stealing the concept I would say - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1263001724/hot-and-dangerous
As I am reading the case is a bit more complicated https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=122746791639744&id=122724914975265
I hope they will reach some sort of equitable resolution, mutually beneficial to all
