Conan the Warlord Deja Vu

Here's the last model I'm painting for my buddy. He was painted solo because I had already painted mine. I went for a more earthy, subdued color scheme with his model than the cartoonier scheme I used for mine. I actually think I like his more, so I hope he's pleased with it.

Conan: Natohk, the Veiled One

The next model I painted for my buddy (and myself) was Natohk from Black Colossus. Natohk is actually the resurrected form of the Stygian sorcerer Thugra Khotan, accidentally awakened by Shevatas. He's one of several evil wizards that your heroes can take on.

Conan: Constantius

This is the first model I'm painting for my friend, Constantius. He's the fairly despicable villain from A Witch Shall Be Born. My buddy wants to use the model to represent his D&D cleric. I figured I might as well paint my own Constantius at the same time. Mine is on the left while my friend's is on the right.

Back to Work

Wow, three weeks without any posts! I think that's the longest I've gone. I'm still pursuing my hobbies, but its taken a while to recover from having family visit for the holidays. In addition, I've been doing a bit more work on some scientific manuscripts so that's also been eating up some hobby time. As an aside, we've been introducing our son into our various geekdoms.

We've been making our own baby food, and you've got to freeze it somehow. Why use a boring ice cube tray when you can have a green pea Tardis?

Conan, King of Aquilonia

For my final model of 2016, I painted King Conan (who is called Amra the Lion in the game for some reason, even though that is Conan's pirate alias). I believe this model represents Conan from The Phoenix on the Sword, specifically when he's defending himself from the assassins and grabs an ancient axe from the wall of his bedchamber. To reference this, I painted the axe to look old but well-cared for, accentuating the cracks molded into the blade.

Conan: Khosatral Khel

Khosatral Khel is the evil sorcerer from The Devil in Iron, and as such is the first villain that I've painted. While I had intended to paint all of the heroes first, I couldn't resist painting Khel because he's so similar looking to Conan. I don't have any particular attachment to the character; it just seemed like the time to paint him.

Conan: Taurus of Nemedia, Prince of Thieves

Taurus is the thief Conan meets in Tower of the Elephant. Like Shevatas, he dies very soon after he's introduced, but he's a tremendously interesting and likeable character for those few pages. I would have preferred him to be the thief in the base box, but I can see why he isn't. While I applaud Monolith for sculpting Taurus with the belly that he has in the story, it's very different from the aesthetic of every other model in the game.
