15mm Tupi -- special pre-release deals (AD)
« on: December 10, 2019, 04:18:56 PM »
We are very pleased to release a range of 15mm Tupi -- well, almost!  This is actually a PRE-RELEASE SPECIAL OFFER:
http://khurasanminiatures.tripod.com/15mm-tupi.html

The molds are being made and then we will get a production run of castings, but we wanted to do a special pre-release offer of some sets, including a DBA set and three different army deals for different rules sets, at a discount.  We anticipate that fulfillment will happen late December 2019 to early January 2020. Once we have the stock on hand, the price will revert to the normal retail price.

I'm extremely pleased with how the models came out!  Yes, these are 15mm.  There are club sets, longbow sets, command sets, and each of those is in two flavours: wearing feather headdress, or the "tonsured" hairstyle.  The archers come with separate warclubs you can put at their feet as they shoot away, and the command comes with a round feather backbanner.

Just a few samples:

Very nice indeed.  I think they would work for Manco Inca's Amazon Allies too.

Yes I think the feather guys would work for amazonian tribes as well.

Good, I just bought some of them for that very purpose.  TBH, I think youyou have just filled a gap in the market in terms of Manco's army.  The other current offerings in 15mm are pretty much featherless.

Even with the knowledge that it is historically correct, the Tupi shaved hair style always makes me think of a bunch of middle-aged men running about in their birthday suits. Try as I might I can't shake it!  ::)

Lovely figures all the same!  :)

Cool! Technically speaking, there may need to be more archers in the DBA army, to allow for the possibility of "fast" (3-figure) vs. "solid" (4-figure) archer elements, but I suppose that most people would go with the "fast" option, regardless.

Would it be possible to order DBA armies either entirely with tonsured figures or entirely with figures wearing feathered headdresses?

Chances are that each tribe differed slightly in its costume, and that they would have fought against one another, rather than as allies.

Also, if Ian Heath's suggestion is correct, there could even be a third variant with shaven heads apart from a tuft of hair at the crown of the head.

The individual packs are now available in case people want more figurines.
