I remember finding that site through a EPT massage group. As simple (and slightly cartoony) as they are, they look better then most paper stand-ups I find online (most of which are poorly designed with art that was lifted off official artwork or HeroMachine, and dont print-out right).
I'm not above using paper minis - even alongside actual figurines. I dont play EPT, but I do like to liberally barrow this and that for my own games. I really like the sets. I find the Mihalli set (with the miscellaneous humans) to be the most useful because they have the most variety, and the humans can be used with non-EPT games. The blank templates from the Tsolyanu soldier set is also useful because you can draw you own figures. I hope Talzhemir adds more sets, as she dose a fantastic job at it.
Its good that this set exists because I can't find EPT miniatures anywhere else - I looked!
These are fantastic finds! Regarding miniatures, check out Eureka Miniatures website via the miniatures page. They're making sanctioned 28mm figs for Tekumel. So far they have the First Legion Of Ever Present Glory and the the Legion of Serqu for the Tsolyani, and the Yan Koryani Gureks of the Mighty of Yan Kor and Tleku Miriya.
Funny, I just noticed how cool and fantastic that last bit sounded. No wonder I loved EPT....

I love Eureka's figures, the trouble is that right now the life is limited and mainly to soldiers. I've been looking for proxies for other figures, mainly from Reaper. Properly painted, how do these look for...

re. "The Armies and Enemies of the Petal Throne" range manufactured by Eureka - There are two other Yan Koryani gureks not mentioned - the Valiant of Ke'er and the Turquoise Eye, which are also available.
Alan Marsh, the sculptor, is currently working on the Shen. He was just asking me today about how the berserker should look. Hlaka and Ahoggya are to follow.
