Conan!

By Crom, it’s been a Hyborean Age since I’ve posted! Well, it hasn’t been for lack of productivity. A month of effort has produced this bust of Conan.

What a big effort for a mini, but a very satisfying project and full of enjoyment.

Technically this is Urhuk from Black Crow Miniatures. This classic model was sculpted by the great Raul Latorre. With Cormac first and now, er, Urhuk, Black Crow has quickly become one of my favorite producers of miniatures. I’ve seen nothing but clean casts, crisp details, and (most importantly) inspiring sculpts.

I had a blast painting all parts of Conan and I’m chuffed, as my British friends say, at the finished model. Why not enjoy some pictures?

Let me know what you think in the comments section. If you have questions or comments I’d love to hear from you!

  1. Sensational work! The skin tones on this guy might be your best yet. I like how they’re non-conventional and fit the coldness of this particular character at the same time. The eyes are also perfectly done. They look cold and calculating. I’ve never been much of a Conan fan but I can’t help but be impressed by your work here. I saw what you’re working on in the near future on IG and that will be really exciting being a big LOTR fan. Keep the awesome projects coming! 🙂

    1. Thanks Kuribo! Really appreciate your kind words and it’s always nice to hear from you. The ent will have to wait at least a little while, as I started another project a couple days before he showed up. I’m one of those ‘one project to completion’ type painters, unable to bounce between multiple jobs. Anyway, I’ll try not to keep the next one a secret for a whole month!

  2. Perfection. I especially like how you did the shield, and having looked at a bunch of good examples of this model on putty and paint I think yours ranks in the top 3, perhaps even the best.

    The only minor thing I’d mention is that perhaps the inner ear could’ve been painted as a (darker) skin tone rather than the stark black, it looks a tad bit unusual — but maybe it was just a factor in how the model was designed?
