Something about gaming in M. A. R. Barker's world of Tekumel, with miniatures and other sundry amusements, and all for the fun of it...

And Now, Something Nice...
This may be my last post on this blog; Google / Blogger is changing the interface format of the platform to better suit people who use their smart phones and similar devices to look at the Internet. I don;t have either; I use a desktop computer, and the new format simply does not work with it. I shall try the Windows 10 machine, to see if that helps, and we'll try to keep on posting as best we can.
In the meantime, let's have some good news:
From Murr dur Oboe, Homicidal Nylss Mercenary:
"I love my painting kit. Thank you so much for this. I’ve already painted
the two minis that you gave me."
One of the Shieldmaidens, who plays Murr in my Tekumel campaign, was a guest at our Anniversary event and mentioned that she was interested in getting to learn how to paint miniature figures. Well, nobody was there for me, fifty years back, so in consultation with Dr. Hannah, Ace Painter at The Source Comics & Games
I got Murr a little 'starter' kit with paint, brushes, palette, and brush cleaner - I also got a carry case to put it all in. Dr. Hannah also suggested a couple of miniatures to go with, as 'starter figures', and these wer packed in with the tools.
It worked. Murr is a great painter; her very first two miniatures are in the top two photos, and she enjoyed painting them so much she went and got herself a Reaper 'Bone Dragon' with the results you can see in the lower photos.
I love it when this happens. It's why I'm in this hobby. I got very lucky, and got to know some really amazing people back in the day, and I try to pass that good onward. We'll tally this one as a success... :)
(Edit: The 'preview' looks nothing like what appears on the blog. I'm working on it.)
