Remember These?

Dháru and Vánu troops

Clan of the Silver Worm 

Mákhis Longbowmen

All sculpted by Allan Marsh

These are all greens that Allan did for us some time ago. The topmost figures are blanks; they have long since been put together. There are four with halberds, four with swords, four archers and four with crossbows; two males and two females of each. All that is missing are command figures. I had been holding off waiting for the command to get done, but now I am thinking to go ahead and get the basic troopers molded anyhow. 

There was also a delay because the metal forming the masters was of the same type as has been giving us so much grief with the Ahoggyá and the Shén. Now that we seem to have got that monkey off our back the road is open for a huge backlog of stuff to be released!

The Clan of the Sliver Worm skirmisher girls are meant to go along with Silver Worm troops which are basic Yán Kóryani. Unfortunately the basic troops are stalled, being part in Australia and part over here. I was waiting to bring these out but again have had another change of heart and decided to go for it. 

The Mákhis longbowmen were also intended to be accompanied by regular Yán Kór troops. Same story as above.  

So a little later this summer these will be going off to get mastered and cast. Not sure when they will be available. The intent is to provide them as singles, or as Warbands and Hordes per our usual practice.

I have been working out pricing for these and other human troops and I think it will be as follows:

Character figures - ie. Lady Mríssa - $6.00;
Singles - troopers, command - $5.00;
Warband, consisting of 10 troopers plus 3 or 4 command - $50.00;
Horde, consisting of 10 troopers - $40.00.

Tekumel Club members would, of course, get their usual discounts (40-50% off.)

This pricing will apply to the forthcoming Lady Mríssa figures. Non-humans or figures that are over-sized or have lots of extra parts might be priced differently but for basic human types this will be our goal for pricing.

Let me know if you have questions, comments or suggestions. All the above, and the Aridáni Legion of Lady Mríssa are all available for pre-order if you wish to do so.
