Greetings Terrans, it’s another shorty today – I have not one Bêlit, but two versions of her! First up, the main version that came with the game:
Next, we have the ‘savage’ version of her (a stretch goal IIRC):
Both were painted in my now-usual method of Contrast base coat followed by some careful highlighting. The models themselves are nice enough – ‘regular Bêlit’ is a bit soft, and has a shonky spear & a lean that no amount of steam could correct, but ‘savage’ Bêlit is a pretty decent mini. That said, they both obviously suffer from a very limited wardrobe situation, but as mentioned before, the models are guided by the original writing, so it is what it is.
Here’s the pair of them together:
And that’s me until next time!
Great job on both minis, once again your skin tones are superb. And well done on all those fiddly straps and brass details! That’s the sort of thing that usually makes me go, “Nah, this one can wait in storage another year” :-)
Cheers mate, and yeah, all those straps and fiddly bits were a pain… didn’t help that the definition is so gash in places! Still, job done, onwards and upwards 😊

Great work on both Alex, the skin tones look great, and great work on the detail. I think in the realm of Conan, there must be very limited shops, which is why the ladies all have minimal clothing ! LOL
Cheers Dave, yup, it’s ridiculous. I’m actually re-reading the books as part of this project & they are good fun, but really bloody daft in places 😂

Very nice- oddly Conan stuff is the only bit of fantasy that I really engage with so it has been nice seeing all of these bits that you have been doing.
Cheers mate, I’m enjoying re-reading all the Conan stuff while I work through these – they’re a bit daft in places, but good fun for all that. Lots of panting & steely thews!
Nicely done Alex. Looks to me like you’ve got those skin tones down to a fine art. 🙂
Cheers mate, these scantily clad barbarian types are great for the practice 😂
As everyone else has said beautiful work on the flesh (just as well as there’s quite a lot of it!), and the details are top notch too. Though both fig’s are nice I much prefer the “savage” version!
Cheers mate, good practice eh? 😁
Very well done. The skin tone is spot on
Cheers dude, I’m having fun with these Contrast paints 😊
I still haven’t explored the range too much. I’ve only really used them as a glaze
Excellent as ever mate. Seeing all the stuff you’ve been doing lately has me wanting to read a bit more Conan, I’ll have to grab the unfinished anthology I left behind at my parent’s house next time I see them.
Crom! Steely Thews! Eyes burning with blue balefire! (etc. etc.)
Conan was similarly attired, so I guess people liked to run around in little as possible. 😉
In a way it shows what a badass they are, because you usually want to go into battler as well protected as possible!
Nice work on these, and I have to agree on the Savage one being quite nice.
True enough – must’ve been toasty-warm in the Hyborian Age! 😂
Top painting again, I really enjoy reading your excellent blog. Bêlit is clearly another one who doesn’t have to spend long ironing her shirts before another day at work.
Cheers mate, true enough 😊
Well done again mate, great figures!
