Pre-Order Sale: The Legion of the Sapphire Kirtle



Sculpted by John Winter

The Legion of the Sapphire Kirtle, 12th Imperial Light Infantry


Help! 


These gals have been Mastered - Ooer!  :-o! - but now I need to get the production molds and castings ordered. Only thing is I'm skint as usually seems to be the case these days. Too afraid to try Kickstarter...my solution: a "Pre-Order Sale"...


That is, 50% off for non-members, 60% for Molkar-level Tekumel Club Members and for Kerdu - "Call Me".  ;-)   (Well, email, actually...)



The sale will run until I have them in regular production. Pre-orders will ship once I have castings. Please add $5 postage in Canada, $10 to the USA and $15 elsewhere.


Here are the codes and normal non-member prices, in US dollars:


The Legion of the Sapphire Kirtle, 12th Imperial Light Infantry


AE-TS   238   Kérdu   $6

AE-TS   239   Warband (Javelins)   $50
AE-TS   240   Warband (Slings)   $50
AE-TS   241   Horde (Javelins)   $40
AE-TS   242   Horde (Slings)   $40

All prices in US dollars. PayPal preferred, but can take Money Orders and even Cheques, if in US Funds.


PayPal address: green27@sympatico.ca


A Warband consists of one each of the command figures (two officers, standard bearer and musician), plus 10 troopers. A Horde consists of 10 troopers. The Kerdu is sold as a single figure.


Thanks you for your interest. Please email me if there are any questions.


Best Regards,

Happy Seppuku!





Happy Seppuku is a new company (at least new to me!) that sells basing texture and detailing kits. Their molds allow you to make impressions of various textures in greenstuff and other similar putties which are used to finish off your bases. Those at the top are two of my favourites. In the past I've defaulted to outdoors sort of textures, but with priestly figures and the like I'm thinking that interior textures might be more appropriate. I especially like the Old World flagstone texture at the top, only I wouldn't paint it a solid colour. I remember seeing a tutorial on the Manorhouse website where he showed how he used a mix of colours to make a much more interesting look. 

For our up-coming Swamp Folk I think a ships decking would be perfect for their bases. Something like that shown below...

Upcoming Shén Shield Variants...




There are over a dozen Shén mercenary units serving in the armies of the Five Empires. While we cannot afford to do differing armour for each unit, we are trying to offer some variation in the shields. Shown above are some variants that Federico has done which will be moulded and made available before the summer is out.

B is for Bethorm: the Plane of Tekumel

Bethorm is a new Tekumel rpg designed by Jeff Dee and currently on Kickstarter. Even if you don't do rpg's this promises to be a useful resource as, at the very least, many of Tekumel's unique creatures will be illustrated for the first time. I believe there will also be useful scenarios and the stretch goals will example little known areas within the Empire, such as the Kurt Hills. That alone, is worth contributing to, IMO!
