They have one job, to guard the palace, and this is a job that they singularly fail to do in every episode where it us relevant, relying on He-Man and chums to actually deal with any threats to the royal family.
What's more, their captain, Teela, regularly abandons her post to nag off on adventures which usually involve getting herself captured.
Naturally, when the opportunity to get hold of some of these 'elites' came about, I jumped at it.
The Palace Guards are from the same source as the Horde Troopers, and as with them, I will probably pick up more when they become available again.
I've used the same colour scheme as I did for Man-At-Arms, and it was very straightforward to do. As with the Horde Troopers, Filmation did not waste animation detail on background characters and so there were no fiddly bits to paint.
In games of 7TV these guys are destined to be used as Native Guards (I think) from the 7TV: Pulp set. It's occurred to me that the Pulp profiles are more than suitable for Masters of the Universe as He-Man's adventures on Eternia bear more than a passing resemblance to Flash Gordon's escapades on Mongo, and John Carter's tribulations on Mars.
Another two added to the painted pot has that total creeping towards the magic 100 for the year.
