“No man may have me, unless he’s beaten me in a fair fight.”

The last one of my Hyborean heroes is the fierce Red Sonja. This one is from Elladan and sculpted by Andy Peters, just like Conan himself. I love the pose and the sculpt, but of course you have to accept that it’s based on the comic books with corresponding proportions. Consequently I decided to go for a brighter skin and a strong red for her hair. I’m more satisfied with the hair this time, but as a matter of fact it’s not easy to highlight red, isn’t it? That’s what I like about painting so many completely different miniatures. You’re forced to use different techniques and to learn the characteristics and challanges of every single colour.


It was really fun painting a couple of barbarian typed miniatures. Now, I think, it’s time for something modern again.
