Greetings Terrans, how goes it? As you can probably tell from the catchy title, it is yet another set of Conan characters this week – a pair of sorcerers, a witch and a wolf!
First up we have ‘Zelata’ and her wolf:
She’s understated, but a pretty decent mini for that & her wolf is pretty darn good too. Both were fun to paint using mostly contrasts, and a little bit of wet blending on wolfy.
Next we have ‘Pelias’:
Ok, so he’s an absolute cliché of a wizard mini – Hooded robes? Check. Long beard? – check. Glowing sorcerous fireball? – yup, check… Still, he’s fun, and I enjoyed playing around with OSL to elevate him a bit.
Finally, we have ‘Hadrathus’:
This guy is another cliché of the wizardy trope, but still manages to be quite charming, and again, I used OSL to help him to stand out. Somewhat frustratingly, this mini is slightly spoiled by only looking ok from 2 angles due to a horrible misalignment on the staff… you can see this most clearly from the top down:
Still, not a bad mini in a fairly decent trio – here’s a final group shot:
And that’s it for another week – next time, prepare to be asked the riddle of steel and meet various incarnations of that most famousest of barbarians – By Crom, it’s Conan!!
