Not only for Conan, they'll also make a nice Song of Blades & Heroes warband, or stand-in for Dungeons and Dragons. We have the Magister, flanked by a Hero and Champion looking pair:
(Crikey, photos are even worse than usual today, that's what I get for not finishing in time to use natural light). When I first pulled the central chap out of his ebay package, I thought about using him as some sort of town official, but it didn't take long before he'd been recast in my mind as some sort of evil magister. I mean, look how fancy his coat is!
Supporting them (and by supporting, I mean dying in droves under the onslaught of even the lowliest Hero type) we have a couple of henchmen:
I don't know why that guy even bothers with that shield, he's not even wearing a shirt!
Unsure of whether they're goodies or baddies, we have a pair of warrior princess types:
(pretend these photos are brighter)
Last but not least, we have the minis that shape the theme of the warband, dependant on their inclusion:
Zombies! With these, we have the entourage of an evil necromancer, without them, they're the bodyguards of an accountant...
Every miniature features a red sash or scarf, to tie them all together, but also to link them to the Snakeman I painted a while back, huzzah!
Actually finishing some miniatures brings the tally to:
27 vs 67 = -40 As soon as I can find a shade of pink I like for finishing off needlers, I'll have another dozen finished miniatures, but that still means I'll need another 28 to get back to zero - and Salute's in three weeks...
