What will you do? Surround him with heaps and piles of broken, bloody bodies?
"Did you deem yourself strong, because you were able to twist the heads off civilized folk, poor weaklings with muscles like rotten string? Hell! Break the neck of a wild Cimmerian bull before you call yourself strong. I did that, before I was a full-grown man...!" - Conan, in "Shadows in Zamboula", by Robert E. Howard
"... you speak of Venarium familiarly. Perhaps you were there?"
"I was," grunted [Conan]. "I was one of the horde that swarmed over the hills. I hadn't yet seen fifteen snows, but already my name was repeated about the council fires." - "Beyond the Black River", by Robert E. Howard

David at Bronze Age Miniatures has just released a new barbarian that would make a great Conan:

That looks pretty nice. I'm forced to admit that I'm not real keen on the helemt, but I like the pose and I'd like to see a nicely painted version so I could see all the detail brought out...

Looks good, but I'm not sure about Bronze Age mini's. Sculpts look a little crude although a good paint job might prove me wrong. How to they compare with say Reaper or Tre Manor sculpts?

I'll get pictures of the Bronze Age miniature posted when I have him finished; I think most of David's sculpts look even better painted.

Also, some new sculpts that a bit larger scale but awesome Conan style sculpts from Heavy Metal Minis:

Barbarian 2

Barbarian 1

The Heavy Metal figs are very cool. What scale are they? They are like a stylized version of Conan but that appeals to me.

They are about 50mm; larger than I work with usually but I had to get them.

I got this several years ago from a company that is no longer around, but she was obviously meant to be Teegra from "Fire And Ice", so that's how I tried to paint her:

Does anyone remember a Julie Guthrie Personality from about 20 years ago that was Arnold with the film sword in mail? Unfortunately I lost the figure while living in Alaska aboard my sloop, but that was always my favourite Conan figure. (Not that Arnold is my idea of Conan, mind you. But I did, do and always will LOVE the Atlantean sword....sigh)

I went through an old Grenadier catalog and I couldn't find anything that fits that description - the only old miniature I can think of that fits is an old Ral Partha miniature called "The Cimmerian" that had the movie sword but not mail. I'll keep my eyes open though!

Well, I couldn't find this guy in the catalogs I looked at, but he is being produced by the current owner of the old Julie Guthrie Fantasy Personalities - is this the miniature you are talking about?

Great paint work on this mini, Primeval! You've highlighted her nipples perfectly too :)

Thanks for the kind words guys - I enjoyed painting her. I am working on a Vanir warband at the moment for a contest - I'll make sure to show them when I can!

This is the shamaness for the Vanir warband I mentioned; I didn't get the warriors finished yet but will post them when they are done. This is Yrsa The Accursed from Red Box Games - I picture her as the child of a mother who was a shamaness that sought power through congress with demons.

This would make a great Conan or Kull seizing the crown! I ordered 2 - the kit has several options for weapons.

Here's a young Conan that I converted from various Wargames Factory miniatures.

Yep, REH based the cimmerians around Dark Age Irish/Scots culture, so I wanted the figure to mirror that. I actually used the body of a Numidian, with the head and arms of an ancient German figure and then used sculpting putty to do the hair and the cloak.
