“Old men start it, young men fight it, nobody wins, everybody in the middle dies, and nobody tells the truth!”

I’m happy to finally add a mini of Sly Stallone to my collection: Of course it’s the legendary John Rambo. I think I saw Rambo II twice before I saw the first Rambo and I still like it more. When I saw that miniature by Rogue Miniatures, I just needed it. The mini didn’t have …

“You, my children, are the water that will wash away all that has gone before. “

Today I finished some soldiers of Thulsa Dooms forces. The miniatures are again from Forge of Doom Miniatures and sculpted by Boris Woloszyn. There is absolutely nothing to complain about them, the casting is flawless and despite their mono poses, their heads and arms are different enough to have an interesting look. I’m very happy …

“You killed my snake. Thorgrim is beside himself with grief! He raised that snake from the time it was born.”

Next miniature for the Conan project is Thorgrim, loyal soldier to Thulsa Doom. He is played by Sven-OleThorsen and I always felt like he couldn’t hide that he is a friend of Arnie’s in real life. He is one of those characters the sequel is lacking of although he doesn’t speak a word. The miniature …

“Two or three years ago it was just another snake cult, now… they’re everywhere! “

Today’s s post is a terrain piece for my Conan project. A statue for the snake cult that would fit very well in the temple of Tulsa Doom. It looks pretty much like Tulsa himself after his transformation – a perfect addition to my collection. The statue is a detailed resin piece from Forge of …

“Infidel Defilers! They shall all drown in lakes of blood!”

Thulsa Doom’s Temple Guard fights in Conan the Barbarian against Conan, but ist only Seen for a short time. Their armour ist black apart from the bright fabric and orange elements at the helmets. Usually I try to stick to the original design of the movie characters, but I didn’t want to paint them only …

“Now they will know why they are afraid of the dark. Now they learn why they fear the night.”

Continuing with my Saga “Conan” project I painted Thulsa Doom, evil wizard and lord of the snakes. In “Conan the Barbarian” Thulsa is portrayed by James Earl Jones. Although I loved Arnie in that movie, it was James Earl Jones’ performance that really sticked to my mind. The eyes, the voice, the sheer presence. You …

“Gaul is entirely occupied by the Romans. Well, not entirely…”

Just when my Saga project was about to begin I had to squeeze in another small painting project. Last week Albert Uderzo passed away, illustator and writer (after the late Ren√© Goscinny) of “Asterix & Obelix”. As those unbending Gauls were two of my childhood heroes (well, amongst many others) and with the passing away …
