|Post subject:||Hlutrgu and Qol - release pending|
Details of the Hlutrgu and Qol release, as posted to the Tekumel yahoo group:
"I don't know how many are interested in figures anymore, but we are on the verge of releasing the Hlutrgu and Qol - 28mm wargames figures.
I haven't been able to finalize prices due to communication "issues", rising metal prices and "inconvenient" weddings! I am hopeful that this will be resolved by Tuesday of next week.
Our blog has some related threads:
The Hlutrgu - "Swamp Frogs"
The release will consist of two coracles, one with three beasties, the other five; the figures for the boats will consist of left and right paddlers, two different Hlutrgu with javelins and a leader/shaman type. These are separate torsos that fit on two different lower bodies: kneeling or cross-legged.
For foot figures there will be a Leader/shaman, a drummer, a Hlutrgu w. severed head, a Hlutrgu w. captive and two with javelins.
They will be available singly; as a Warband with all four command figures and 10 with javelins; and as a Horde Builder set of 10 with javelins.
The Qol are the first release of a wider range. These figures are basically the rank-and-file "grunts". Currently the plans are for:
1) command/character types;
2) a palanquin borne by 8 Qol (with human priest/priestess of Ksarul for a rider); and
3) a selection of Ksarul priests and priestesses (inc. warrior priests.)
The Qol are man-sized. Our figures are 28mm - I don't know if you've seen any but I think Allan (Marsh) has done a good job on the proportions - that is they are more slender than many ranges, though perhaps not like Tom Meier's stuff.
The Qol and the Hlutrgu are by Rod Campbell - Comparing the Qol with one of our human figures I'd say they are about the same size.
The Hlutrgu are shorter. The fluff states a height range and I picked a value within the range that put them about shoulder height to one of our human figures (which are scaled to the average height stated for Tsolyani.) The finished Hlutrgu stand 24-25mm to top of head.
All measurments are from bottom of feet. Some poses may vary the heights. The figures have small, thin integral bases rather than tabs.
Please do not hesitate to drop me a line if you have any questions.
