That looks awesome. Where do you store all your terrain? Between this and your scifi terrain I would imagine that a good portion of your garage or basement is filled. Well done I'm looking forward to seeing the game reports.

I'm lucky enough to not only have a lot of space where I live but also a gamer wife so I don't have to fight with her about the amount of space our hobby takes up.  I also try and keep it fairly organized.  This set fits in one moderately sized storage tub with some room to spare for more stuff later on. 

Thanks for the kind words everyone!  I've been digging through my miniature collection and pulling out the bits I want to use for this project.  I think the next terrain project will be an Aqualonian village/town.

Anyone have any suggestions for Hyborian style pirates?  I'm also looking for baboons.

Depends on what region of Hyboria you mean, for more southern like pirates i will use these from Perry Metall Crusades/Muslim Army:

For more northern like pirates i would use Ancient Germans from Wargames Factory or Celts from Warlord Games.

Obelisk Miniatrues had some fine baboons, but i don´t know if you can still get them.

I have a long game report up on my blog for our "Forgotten Islands" Hyborian Savage Worlds campaign.  It is an RPG report so it has quite a bit more "story" than a wargame battle report.  It is far too large to post here.

Steal away!  I would have never thought to make these buildings without your cork tutorials.

That was one epic AAR.

I just ordered a pack of those Perry minis and a pack of archers from the same line.  I think they are going to work quite nicely.

Just thought I would post some pics of some of my recent minis for the Conan Project.  Above are a batch of Reaper figs. 



These Slavers are "Servants of Set" from the Chaos in Cairo line by Westwind I think. 

Sorry about the kind of crappy pics.  I just handheld the shots with direct flash.  Ran out of time to set up better lighting so they look a bit shinier than in real life.

Great Thread love the terrain and miniatures. Probably to late now. My Conan knowledge is vague at best but what about those LOTR Corsairs of Umbar?
