First Look: The Qól

Qól Archers and Halberdiers

Finally - after a long summer of not having much to post - I can give you a look at the first of the Qól figures we have planned for release through the Tékumel Club.

The Qól are the in-human creations of the Temple of Ksárul and are used as guardians and servitors. The Temple of Sárku has also been known to make use of them as well.

This first batch comprise two archers, two halberdiers and a swordsman. Additional figures planned are more character types. If you have suggestions for poses we'd like to hear them - the release already has some 15-odd figures planned as it leads into the Temple of Ksárul.

Hope you like them!

In other news. Production delays have beset the Shén and, possibly, the Hláka. Similarly, the Hlutrgú have been delayed by vacations and other commitments meaning the masters have yet to be made. The up-side of this is the masters for the Qól and Hlutrgú should be able to get made at the same time.

Things are progressing, albiet slowly...

Thank you all for your patience!


  1. They look very good. The only thing I caution about is the thinness of the hand grip area of the bows. They look to have the same thinness as the EPG archers from Eureka. And I have a number of them arrive with broken bows. The Serqu archers have thicker hand grip areas.

  2. I don't think they are as thin as the EPGs which actually have an indent at the hand-grip. I think Alan was trying to delineate the hand grip more and didn't realize the problems this would create. After that I insisted that the Serqu have plain bows with no attempt to do anything fancy.

    Regarding the Qol, I haven't seen them in person but when I enlarge the picture the bow seems to go straight into the hand/tentacle without the indent that causes the problem with the EPGs.

  3. I do like the figures and will be buying some when they come out. I'm glad you're confident there will be no problems with the bows at the hand grip area.

  4. You've got to somehow market these guys to the non-Tekumel crowd; they're the best swords & sorcery snakemen miniatures I've ever seen!
