but muh art, but unironically
GW's official art has always depicted SoB as decent looking, and still visibly feminine at worst. They couldn't produce any kind of face when metal SoBs came out. People expected them to remedy that 20 years later, not intentionally sidegrade from man-jawed grannies to man-jawed trannies and gorillas.
Some of the OG metals even have good faces with a little cleanup.
