If anyone is doing Conan - they did a big board game (and a 2nd version already I believe), so a lot of Conan specific miniatures are out there on eBay etc.  Thak, etc. A lot of the main characters from the books.

Thank you all for the kind words. 
@Elbows: I agree, I have some monsters on their way to me right now  :)

Now on the the good stuff!  I have finished some Temple Guards for the heroes to knock around, or be potential allies.  They are made up of parts from Victrix's Republican Roman, Italian Allies, Samnites, and Numidian heads. 







Just saw that the leader has a spot on his nose that needs touching up  >:(

I also finished two companions for Conan, a native guide and a bronze armored warrior.

Now that is a great start and introduction to the time of high adventure. I remember every single line from those movies, endless hours of reading the books and countless attempts to copy the art of John Buscema's graphic novels. Thank you for rekindling sweet memories of my youth... :) :)

Thanks everyone.  This helps me stay motivated
@Michi: I know what you mean. The old Conan movies, the new one, and Red Sonya have been playing on constant loop next to me while I'm painting. 
@Arundel: I have an evil sorcerer and some henchmen on the painting table right now.  Up next I might paint up some giant snakes/apes/animals.
@barbaric splendor: thanks for saying so.  I feel that metallics are my weak spot. I can never get them the way I want them to look in my head.  I just paint a dark metallic color, then a wash, and then highlight with a lighter metallic...then some more washes and highlights.

Justin
