The Tekumel Club - Trial Membership offer: save 40%


In lieu of a Black Friday sale I have decided to offer trial one month Tekumel Club memberships: For the month of December 2019, anybody can purchase Tekumel Club products as if they were Tekumel Club members. This is a savings of 40% off the regular prices. Note that there are some items the discount does not apply to, most noticeably the DAD 3D printed stuff, which I have to import from the USA.

What is the Tekumel Club?

The membership costs $50 CAD and provides a 40% discount from the regular price of items, subject to the limitations noted above. The duration is indefinite: if I had a really large range I would make it one year, like the Old Glory Army Card, but my range isn't, and I want people to feel they have gotten their money's worth, so currently no expiry date. Many people renew anyway, every few years, because the Tekumel Project is the only source of Tekumel miniatures and joining the club helps there to be more.

Normally, the "break-even" point with the club is at $128 give or take. By that I mean that $128 worth of miniatures w/o the discount is approximately the same as $128 worth of miniatures, less 40%, plus the $50 cost of the membership.

So the offer is:

1) For the month of December 2019, you may trial the Tekumel Club membership for free;

2) You will get the 40% discount on any Tekumel Project miniatures on offer - per the restrictions noted above;

3) I reserve the right to cancel or limit quantities at any time;

4) If, by the end of the Month, you have purchased $128 or more miniatures you will be offered the opportunity to join the Tekumel Club for free;

5) As a reward for current members, I can offer an additional 10% off for the month. Recent purchasers will get a credit.

Hope this all seems reasonable and correct to you!

If you have any questions just ask: green27 -AT- sympatico -DOT- ca

Best Regards,

New Arrivals and a Price Increase - Oh No!


From the collection of Tony Yates

New arrivals to the Palace of Ever-Glorious War in the form of generic light infantry skirmisher girls. Khmer Amazons from my Garden of Kama range, now offered as a Horde pack for $40. Note that weapons and shields are not provided. I recommend wire javelins from North Star Miniatures. The figures have tabs but are NOT supplied with slotta bases.

And my generic shields have gone up a quarter to $1 each due to rising costs. :-(

The Exalted Forces of Tléku Miriyá


Excerpt from the Swords & Glory map.

The city of Tléku Miriyá is situated on the south-eastern border shared with Saá Allaqí, at the western end of the Jánnu Mountains, and overlooked by the mighty Borodún Head. (The maps on the Tekumel site erroneously show it as part of Saá Allaqí.)

Lord Zhú Kriyór, the clan leader of Tléku Miriyá, is an enthusiastic supporter of Baron Áld and has raised two guréks in support of his cause.

The Gurék of Tléku Miriyá I

Ochür: Lord Zhú Kriyór   (Ochür means General, in Yán Koryáni) 

5000 Heavy Infantry w. long spears and shields, swords;
3000 Medium Infantry w. throwing spears and shields, swords;
2500 Crossbows w. medium crossbows, swords and pavise shields. Famed for their accuracy.
125 Onagers   Artillerymen w. leather armour, short swords.

The Gurék of Tléku Miriyá II

Ochür: Lord Zhú Kriyór. Sub-general is his younger brother: Zhú Hésha (age: 15)

5000 Medium Infantry w. pikes and small shields, short swords;
4000 Crossbows w. medium crossbows, swords and pavise shields. Famed for their accuracy.
6000 Light Infantry w. no armour, slings, sticks and the occasional sword.
6000 Light Infantry w. no armour, bows, sticks and the occasional sword.

Dháru and Vánu in stock!


Excerpt from the Swords & Glory Map 2

Just a quick note to say that I have received stocks [again] of the new Dháru and Vánu figures mentioned in my last post. Tomorrow I will be sorting them into packs. About 800 figures into about 80 packs. These will be "horde" packs only as I am still sorting out the command; by "sorting out", in this case, I mean: "getting them sculpted and cast". The swordsman packs are also missing their shields, which are still in the moulding queue. I will send them on later to anyone who buys a pack.

The Gurék of the Clan of the Red and Green Banner of Dháru
AE-YK   35   Horde (MI Halberds)   $40 CAD
AE-YK   37   Horde (Crossbows)   $40 CAD


AE-YK 35 & 40 Halberds
 

AE-YK 37 Crossbows

The Gurék of the City of Vánu
AE-YK   40   Horde (HI Halberds)   $40 CAD
AE-YK   42   Horde (MI Sword and Javelin)   $40 CAD
AE-YK   44   Horde (Bows)   $40 CAD


AE-YK 42 Swords




AE-YK 44 Bows



Tekumel Club discounts apply, of course.

As always, a Horde will consist of a mix of 10 figures, either swordsmen, halberdiers, archers or with crossbows. Note that there are male and female poses. I usually do 2/3rds male, 1/3 female but can vary an order to suit.

NEW RELEASE PENDING: Dháru and Vánu Guréks for Yan Kor


Dharu and Vanu troopers (on left)

The figures shown above, representing male and female fighters from the cities of Dháru and Vánu in Northern Yan Kor have finally been moulded and are ready for production. Command are still being worked on, but the following are available to pre-order:

The Gurék of the Clan of the Red and Green Banner of Dháru
AE-YK   35   Horde (MI Halberds)   $40 CAD
AE-YK   37   Horde (Crossbows)   $40 CAD
The Gurék of the City of Vánu
AE-YK   40   Horde (HI Halberds)   $40 CAD
AE-YK   42   Horde (MI Sword and Javelin)   $40 CAD
AE-YK   44   Horde (Bows)   $40 CAD

Tekumel Club discounts apply, of course.

As always, a Horde will consist of a mix of 10 figures, either swordsmen, halberdiers, archers or with crossbows. Note that there are male and female poses. I usually do 2/3rds male, 1/3 female but can vary an order to suit.

I still have to pay for the moulding and casting - Master moulds and figures, Production moulds, inc. weapons, accessories (scabbards, quivers), and shields. And I have to pay for any castings ordered. The sculpting costs were paid long ago, thankfully.

An Appeal for Pre-Orders:

Please pre-order these now, or soon, if you are interested. 

I should have some castings on hand by the weekend and more coming by mail shortly thereafter. But I won't be able to order many castings without pre-orders, not right away at least.

Thank You!

One Hundred and Fifty First!



Next Sunday will be Canada's one hundred and fifty-first birthday and to celebrate the event I am making permanent a change I tried earlier this year. Namely, that the prices on Tekumel Project figures are now be stated in Canadian Dollars.

Note that the prices have not changed - just read CAD instead of USD.

And the prices for David Allan Designs will still be USD. This is because I have to import them.

Otherwise customers in countries with a good exchange rate will enjoy a nice savings, and my Canadian customers will finally stop being penalized.
