I churn out a few amateur films every year, all of them with some kind of fantastic content. I never got into CGI, so I use a lot of homemade stop-motion effects to portray creatures and such. It's all pretty primitive, but I believe there's some charm to it as well.

Here's the trailer for my longest project so far. It's not Conan, but it's inspired by the films REH reportedly liked, and steals content from various ancient myths. You can find the whole film (25 minutes or so) on YouTube.
"The King Who Sought Immortality":

My favorite of those posted is The Goblin Wood.

Came across this great plastercine piece by a Spanish guy, I have asked him if there is an English version also.



This is pretty good considering the time the guy spent making this.

Excellant use of lighting in the cave.
"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

I liked that too, was wondering how hard that was to do considering the time lapsing involved etc? No reply from him as yet to the English version.
I like the breaking ice and climbing out of the water bit and the swinging of the chain at the wolves to keep at bay. :)

It speaks volumes to me about Hollywood's motives when some random Spanish guy can make the most Howardian movie I've ever seen with a few lumps of plasticene!
