50193: Thuggee Cultist and Swami


Rigel

Recommended Posts

And now a small vignette from the Gangetic plain! The Thuggee is one of the first minis I ever painted. Didn't have nearly as many paints at the time, and used a tiny bit of blue-black wash in his skin tone (he spends a lot of time outdoors in the sun). Need to touch up the hilt of his tulwar.

The Swami (Artizan Thrilling Tales again; the name is accurate) was much more recent. Like a dumb chump, I painted his mudra upside-down, but it came out well enough that I fear repainting it. :-)  He is here to find inner peace and chew betel leaf, and, brother, he is all out of betel leaf.

I'm not sure what exactly is going on in this sequence, but it will definitely be an instructional parable on the virtues of harmony and tranquility. 

The Buddha statue was from a "Wonders of the World" Toobz that was on clearance. (Also included a tiny Sphinx and some Easter Island moai; good stuff.)
