Its time for another Conan miniature and this time its ‘The Captain’
this is another generic character that is almost an amalgamation of many figures that appear in the Novels, but Monolith are basing the model on a figure that appeared in one of the unpublished stories ‘The Black Stranger’ (unpublished in Howards lifetime that is)
I really enjoyed painting this model, there is a lot of detail in it and I love the concept art that Adrian Smith came up with. I decided to move away from a normal platemail colour and instead used a brass colour instead to match in with the brown theme I wanted to use.
anyway here’s the model before I started, NOTE, I had to take one picture after I primed it as the first image was blurry
and here it is afterwards
