This Tembo spent the last few years half-painted on my shelf of shame. Finally I took the time to finish it. Not my best work, but at least it's off my desk. I am not really happy with the heavy drybrushing. Also the base was supposed to be reddish brownish but turned out purple. At least the highlights are more or less where I wanted them to be. I really love this sculpt though. It is an old Ral Partha Mini by my favourite sculptor (sculptress?) Sandra Garrity and it stays very true to the original artwork in the monstrous compendium. According to Dark Sun lore a Tembo is something like a psychic dog that steals and eats children at night. The earrings are a mystery to me. How on earth (Athas?) does the Tembo get to wear earrings? Who helps the Tembo dress? The original artwork clearly shows the earrings as well but gives no explanation. I have wondered ever since I saw that picture... So here it is. Enjoy! C&C - as always - very welcome!
