Painted Ahoggyá

Ahoggyá, painted by Akársh

Akársh posted these up on the Tékumel wargaming yahoo group: Tekumel-Minis-War. He has painted them in colours appropriate for those serving as mercenaries in the armies of Yán Kór, hence the green lacquered weapons and armour.

Lorún - WIP sculpts

Size comparison - EPG trooper with Lorún

Lorún Ritual Dancers

Here are some WIP sculpts of Lorún Ritual Set along with a Lorún Princess from the Tribal Command Set. Sculpted by David Soderquist of Bronze Age Miniatures. The Princess is based upon original art by MAR Barker. The Ritual Set comprises a Shamaness (Hag), a girl sacrificing a Hmá (a sheep-like animal), a totem bearer (holding a Sérudla skull - the Sérudla is a vaguely dragon-like creature), a male drummer and three skyclad ritual dancers. The Lorún are a tall race, as shown by the size comparison with our trooper from the Legion of Ever-Present Glory. All are "28mm scale" - that is 28mm from bottom of foot to eye being taken to represent the height of the average Tsolyáni male, or 5'10" tall. N'lüss giant men are taller still, reaching heights of 7'6", which is about 42mm (to top of head) in scale with the rest of our figures.
