Painted by Kestral

Kestral was kind enough to send me some pics of two of our porters he just finished painting. I can't wait to see the whole group! :-)

I love it when people send me pics of their painted Tekumel Project figures. Mine are, sadly, mostly unpainted. Yes, I am that slow a painter! :-(

The porters were sculpted by Federico Genovese and can be found under the Palace of the Realm in the TTP Shop. There are two other poses, and several types of modular loads that are supplied more-or-less randomly.

Slave 1

Slave 1

One of a few new releases coming to the Tekumel Club shop sometime in the next few days, "Slave 1" is my token "May the 4th be with You!" effort. That and because I haven't worked out what else to call him. Sculpted by Al Maguire, this fine fellow is not your typical slave. A bit too well fed, methinks. Likely some official caught cooking the books; not too badly, mind you, or he would have been for the "high ride" as they call it in Tsolyanu. But enough to be sold into slavery and not get bailed out by his clan. 

When I get to it, you'll find him in the Palace of the Realm. I have a "to do" list as long as my arm, however, so he'll get there when he gets there. ;-)
