Greetings Terrans, I hope you are all having a good week. I have another wee jaunt along the Conan Character trail for you, with a trio of minis for your viewing pleasure.
First up we have ‘Taurus, Prince of Thieves’:
So apart from him nicking Robin Hood’s nom de guerre, there isn’t much to say about Taurus – painting was a straight forward rinse and repeat of earlier minis, and he wasn’t a bad thing to paint.
Next we have another thief – this time it’s Shevatas:
I really like this mini – in fact, he’s one of the best in the whole set if you ask me & a joy to paint. I went for a darker skin tone to suit the mini & I’m really pleased with how he turned out.
Finally, we have ‘Princess/Thalis’ (sic):
No, I don’t know why Monolith are using both names either, but it is what it is. She’s a tidy little model & was nice to paint – that robe was a bit boring I suppose, but a good opportunity to practice some wet blending. I’m pleased with the purple/gold colour scheme.
Here’s a final shot of the three together for scale:
And that’s it for another week chaps and chapettes – stay safe out there & I’ll catch you next time.

Great work on all three Alex, I particularly look the skin tone on the second one and the robe on the third
Cheers mate, the purple was fun – not a colour I dabble with often!
The skin tones on all these are just excellent and as usual the colours you’ve used on their clothing work really well.
Cheers dude, slowly getting there 😊
Very nice! :-) Skin tones do look good! I’m enjoying following your progress with Conan figures – always been a Conan fan!
Thanks mate, me too! It has been a fun project in that sense
Nicely done indeed Alex and once again you’ve smashed it with the flesh tones. Like you I think Shevatas is nicely composed and SWMBO says his physique reminds her of me. I might have misheard though! 😉
Three rather nice figures there, well two and a really lovely one, the skin tones are excellent and the “princess is gorgeous both the fig and the wall you’ve painted her!
Cheers mate, the minis are a bit ‘soft’ in places, but I’m pleased with how they worked out

Superb work Alex.
Lovely painting. Your skin tones are very realistic; I suppose that you are getting plenty of practice working on this range.
Indeed I am! Cheers mate 😊
Lovely stuff all round. :-)
Cheers mate 😊
Another great group of figures mate! you are the master of painting skin tones!
