Conan The Barbarian.

What is best in life?

"To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women. "

So says Conan!

I've been into all things Conan for the past month or so, reading some of the old stories, and rewatching the 1982 classic.  When I looked to extend that into my miniature world, I wanted a 'movie' Conan as opposed to the more common Frazetta-esque one.  I found the basis over at Hasslefree.  Their Wolf character (which I find out now was heavily inspired by Arnie) worked perfect.  I had to add some long hair, a headband, filed the sword, added some wrist bands, and viola instant Conan!

I've also gotten a few more Savage Sword of Conan inspired minis that I'll be working on in the near future.

This is the first 'fantasy' miniature I've worked on in ages....most of my interest has all been Sci-Fi or Modernish stuff.

Anyhow, hope you like it!
