The Amazons of Attlemont

The Amazons of the Attlemont Hills are a warlike people whose warrior women can take on the barbarian men of the neighboring Blainware Plateau in every regard. Their ferocity in melee and their ruthlessness and accuracy with the bow has made them terrible foes, indeed. Drawing from their shared history with the barbarians of Blainware, they kept the tradition of the “Queens” battle.  The strongest amazon reigns as queen.  She can be challenged by anyone but only once every three years. However, in the amazons’ case, the battle for the crown was not only comprised of a duel in close combat but also an archery contest. For the past eleven years, Targah Bloodhair reigns over her people.

The amazons have learned to draw power from the light of Delaura thanks to a sacred source within the Spirergrove. They possess magical electric powers, which they are adept at using for healing as well as Attack.

The Stages of Life for the Amazon People

The lives of amazons are divided into discrete, named phases.  Each phase is structured to provide progressive instruction for the skills amazons must master.  At the age of four, amazons have commenced the phase of Children during which time they will learn the use of the sling.  Concurrently, the search begins for the gifted ones. These amazons possess the gift of communication with Delaura. Any who appear to possess this magical talent are called talented one and are assigned a gifted one as a mentor.

At the age of six, the Children progress to the amazonian phase of Girl .  They are instructed to master the bow, dagger, spear, and short sword.  Lessons in horseback riding and mounted combat also occur at this time for all amazon girls. Lastly, the first lesson in the huntresses begins, which includes everything that is implied: tracking, hunting, orientation to the wilderness, forecasting weather conditions, and much more. 

At the age of twelve, amazons in the phase of Women are divided into three groups according to their aptitude. The Women particularly skilled in the use of the sling and bow become markswomen.  Women who excel in hand-to-hand combat become fighters. Those who posses superior skills maneuvering in nature become huntresses.  Upon reaching the phase of Woman, the talented ones have emerged from the trials of the Spiregrove and become sorceresses or shamans.

At the age of sixteen, amazons reach the Amazon phase and are considered fully trained.

The Queen – Targah Bloodhair

Targah Bloodhair is the 44th queen of the amazons, and she has been on the throne for many years. Like many queens before her, she is one of the garghain, an elite-markswoman among the amazons. She is tall in stature and has worked extensively to cultivate remarkable skills with numerous ranged weapons, which she has had since she was very young.  By the time she reached the Amazon phase, Targah excelled far beyond her peers in her mastery of the bow.  She quickly entered the prestigious Circle of the Garghain, which is comprised of superlative markswomen who are proficient in firing two arrows simultaneously.  As a Garghain, she had served as a bodyguard to the reigning queen, Hella Eyestrike, for several years. However, Hella quickly realized that Targah posed a threat to her regarding strength and skill. Hella feared she would lose her crown and plotted to assassinate Targah.  

At the queen’s behest, Targah was lured into an ambush, but Targah managed to defeat the four herghain by firing three arrows at once.  Three of the herghain assassins were hit by an arrow and dropped dead to the floor with a single shot. Before besting the fourth in one-on-one combat, Targah was able to determine the name of the one who had ordered the attack. Targah soaked her hair in the blood of the slain herghain, and resembling a blood demon, marched towards the gathering place of the amazons, where she challenged Hella to a duel. 

It was Hella who was quelled in this “unofficial” Queens battle.  Thus, Targah Bloodhair, as she was named from that point forward, was crowned the 44th Queen of the Amazons.  Queen Targah's first act was to offer FREE Shipping to most subjects and less than $15.00 to everyone else worldwide.

"I absolutely love the quality of Tomb Guardians Miniatures. The sculpts are top notch from some of the worlds best sculptors, good quality materials are used, the casts come out beautiful!” (Lyn Stahl, Metalhead Minis)

"I received my Tomb Guardian Dwarves and they are truly the best miniature molds I have ever seen. The detail is exceptional. I'm looking forward to further factions." (Scott H. in Marion, OH)

"I have bought miniatures from several different manufactures, plastic and metal. I personally like metal models the best. I was blown away with the detail and quality of the tombs guardians models. There was virtually zero prep work required prior to priming! The level of detail and crispness throughout the model is unmatched. These will be a staple in my collection moving forward." (The Redbeard Painter)

"I purchased the Tomb Guardians Dwarven Miniatures set during their Kickstarter campaign.  These arrived last week, and they are excellent. Well sculpted, well proportioned. The Paladin and Swordsman appear a second away from dealing some serious damage, and the female Warriors are outstanding! My favorite of the group is Thrarbuk Deepmore, the Dwarven King, in his Dragon Scale Cloak. A great line of figures. I am getting my palette ready now..." (Barry in Vancouver) 

Based on our experience with Fortress Minis, while making our current miniatures, this is how the production process for 'Female Amazons' should proceed:

  •   November, 2019: Tomb Guardians receives money from Kickstarter
  •  November - January, 2019: Fortress Minis makes masters and molds
  •  January - February, 2020: Production
  •  March, 2020: Delivery

There are two amounts listed for each line item. The first is the total shipping cost. The second, in parentheses, is the estimated effective cost per miniature, when you divide the pledge amount + shipping costs by the number of miniatures ordered.

Risks and challenges

At Tomb Guardians, we have experience in designing, production and distribution of our miniatures.
We are fortunate that our design portion of the project has been completed and master of each miniature have been created. However the production molds, production and distribution portion of this project has not.
We are confident about the delivery of these miniatures and see no risk in that area - we have accumulated vast experience working on other miniatures. The only risk factor, which can always happen, is a delay in delivery due to unforeseen circumstances.
