Legion of Ever Present Glory, part 15

It has been a long time; here is a finished result:

Three elements of finished troops!  That is not quite right... For the time being, these three elements will represent three cohorts, three separate units, of Tsolyáni heavy infantry, as my table space is limited.  In the future, I hope to have more room for a larger table, and then these three will be equal to one unit in a game.

Any way, these three are done.  More views:

And, a couple of pics on the future playing surface:

I am not sure why, but the color of the felt is grey in pics.  It definitely is not grey in person, but more of a light tan.  The felt and the base edges are much closer in color than it appears above.  The bases might have come out with a little too much green flock on them, and the mix might change for the following elements.

This marks a turning point in this project.  For so long, I was not certain of the basing scheme, but I have settled on one I like (those are 60mm squares), and everything will be based around that idea.  Also, these were the easy ones.  The only work for these elements involved re-basing painted miniatures.  The rest of the troops are not finished, and progress is going to slow down.  More miniatures are waiting for completion:  three more elements of Ever Present Glory troops - archers; three elements from the Legion of Sérqu - more heavy troops; and three elements of Ahoggyá.

Then, of course, I will need some opposing forces...



  1. They look great - no familiar with the troops, but at first they reminded me of Chinese - the shields, etc. Dean

  2. Great unit well finished.
    Keep up the good work.

  3. These look great

    You really make them pop


  4. Thank you, gentlemen!

    Dean, Tékumel is based heavily on South Asian, SE Asian, and Central American mythology.

  5. Very impressed! The groundwork looks impressive - I can easily imagine the brightly colored troops marching across the parched grassland....

  6. Looking very nice, the blue colors are really good!

  7. First time I've seen Tukamel troops painted up in 30 years. And very nice they are too. Nice to see some more of this.
