Samples; At Last!

Here are a few sample figures I've painted from my Eureka EPT (Armies and Enemies of the Petal Throne) line of soldiers. The Yán Kór will do double duty as Yán Kór obviously for Tékumel battles and they will also be the soldiers of the Mighty Helgraumite Empire in my world. I think it's only fitting that the soldiers of Toslyánu (EPT) become the soldiers of Tralyptia as this is the mortal enemy of Helgrau.

So without further ado here are sample soldiers of Yán Kór /Helgrau and Toslyánu /Tralyptia.

In the words of the Bangles; "We'll start with the Tra-lyp-tions!"

To begin with I have painted a few figures of The Legion of Sérqu; Sword of the Empire and a few of The Legion of Ever-Present Glory.

I have used Prof. Barkers (the creator of the world of Tékumel) paint schemes as guides only. I have a few prejudices that I wasn't able to shake; first heavy infantry should have metal on them. So my heavies have at the least bronze colored scales or plate covering their upper torso.

The Legion of Sérqu, Sword of the Empire, the 14th Imperial Heavy Infantry

The First Legion of Ever-Present Glory, 1st Imperial Heavy Infantry

The Second Gurék of Tléku Miriyá

The First Gurék of Tléku Miriyá


I have labeled the photos with their appropriate Tékumel unit names. I haven’t decided on the names I’ll give these units in my world. I’ll post in the links of this blog a number of resources for quality fantasy and ancient’s period miniatures; as well as, resources for the world of Tékumel.

Click on the photos for a larger version, there is more to come and please feel free to leave comments.

New Legions are very close!

I have begun work on the first four legions for this world. Two are from the Empire of Helgrau and the other two are from one of her enemies. Interestingly they look conspicously like Eureka's EPT (Armies and Enemies of the Empire of the Petal Throne) figures.

I have also started the first unit of Starpans! Starpa is an independant city state that is isolated by mountains and is considered too naturally fortified to be worth attacking. They train as warriors from the moment that they are able, and while the army is small they are fierce, professional and tough! The larger empires are capable of siezing Starpa, it just isn't considered worth the effort or cost.

So sample pictures are on the way for at least three of the nations this world.
