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.
There's not much to say about the paint job; he basically uses all of the techniques I use on Conan. The most interesting part of the paint job was the sandals, which required very careful painting and highlighting of the skin between the many straps. It was tedious but I think it looks really good. It's one of those little details that makes a model really stand out. Also, he's just an imposing model, standing head and shoulders above Conan.
