Alkemy: Suleman Ghulam

Recommended Posts

One of my players is playing a Rakashan in my Savage Worlds game. They're basically a cat people race they tossed into the core rulebook so they wouldn't be stuck with just elves, dwarves, humans and half-orcs.

 

When I got a box for the Khaliman Republic faction in Alkemy, I had the perfect mini for his character. Meet Khaja.

The fur went from pure black to walnut brown to rainy gray. I think it helps break up the pure neutrals with a little warmth.

Basing was done with one of the Basius basing pads (Ruined Imperial Highway) with an etched brass vine added in from a GW basing kit.

You can see a bit of fingerprint there in the back. I should have let it cure completely before starting to mess with it, but hindsight is 20/20.

I painted most of the figure first, before attaching his sheathed dagger and tail. Otherwise, it would have been too much of a pain trying to get to the details under them.

Tried for a bit of a gem effect on the sword. Didn't turn out as well as I would have liked, but it's still better than a pure blue would've looked. Something to improve on.

Looks awesome! I would love to have more Rakshasa minis for my Eberron games (even if my players don't agree).

Looks like a good job to me. It's a shame the Alkemy line died out, I'll have to a look out for them.

      My partner this time around was Aard who, in the usual forum fashion, had very broad wishes that in the end was narrowed down to rangers w/cloaks.  So I ordered an assortment of rangers and started painting one.  Then I opened one of the potential gifts and painted it too, so one less gift one more painted mini.  The first ranger is very green, so we'll call her the spring ranger, while the other is dressed in the latest fall fashion - the autumn ranger.  Also, bonus panther animal companion.

      There's a French wargame called "Alkemy" which has a faction of pseudo-Egyptian cat-people called the Khaliman Republic (or République Khalimane in the original).  A few years back I snagged a starter set of 5 resin figures I found on clearance because, well, cat people.
       
      Currently I am involved in an elaborate and fascinating campaign combining White Wolf's World of Darkness (the one in Vampire the Masquerade second edition and Werewolf the Apocalypse) with its "Exalted" game, second edition (which was originally sold as the prehistory of the World of Darkness, although they backed away from that pretty fast).
       
      This character is a PC for that game.  The person is a lycanthrope, or rather a feline therianthrope.  He has a human form, but I painted up the cat man because it's more fun.
       
      This is the first small-scale non-terrain resin I've ever assembled or painted.  It was a little fiddly and I was worried about its fragility.  There are a few places with what is probably flash that I didn't have the courage to try to slice off.
       
      Comments welcome.
