Yan Koryani Helmet Plumes...

Just counted out 672 Yan Koryani helmet plumes, 52 double helmet plumes, 24 large banner plumes, and 50 medium banner plumes. Received today along with a re-stock of figures. And Ahoggya halberd arms, which I frequently seem to run out of.

The mold for the plumes was shown in my last post. It has 27 helmet plumes and two each of the other types. So, assuming the mold was spun 26 times to get the 52 double helmet plumes, that means about half the large banner plumes had problems, and about 30 helmet plumes, but only 2 medium banner plumes.

Working it out in my head, this gives me enough for 24 Warbands (10 troopers plus command). This because I only have 24 large banner plumes and I will likely want one per banner (plus two medium plumes).

How many helmet plumes are required for those 24 Warbands is not as straight forward. The command figures are generic for many of the Yan Koryani gureks, all of those that wear the khil, in fact. One third of the khil-wearing figures have a crested version without a plume. For each pose type there are 9 figures, 6 male and 3 female. Of these, 1/3 have the tall plumed helmet, 1/3 have the shorter plumed helmet with the "beak", and the rest have crests. The 10 troopers in the warband or horde will be more or less randomly picked, 6 male and 4 female - though if a customer requests a specific mix I am happy to oblige. Some gureks might use more than one pose type. For example, spearmen might use the overhand and underarm poses, meaning there are 12 male figures to choose from to put in the packs, and 6 female.

There is additional variation in that the male figures have varying facial hair.

If the 24 Warbands assumed above use all plumed helmets (240 plumes), then that leaves me with 432 plumes, or a further 43 hordes - again, all wearing plumed helmets. So I guess what I have is really enough for about 60 hordes. The Warbands are constrained by the number of banner plumes.

That seems like a reasonable number, except that one must remember these plumes are used for many different units: Valiant of Ke'er, Turquoise Eye, Tleku Miriya I & II, Defense Against Evil, Rulla Gurek, some elements of Makhis Gurek, some of Silver Worm, and Black Bough.

So I think I need to go back to the caster and say: "Same Again, Please!" :-)
