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 really believed he could be the charismatic leader of a cult.
The miniature captures this brilliantly. Thulsa is sculpted by the talented hands of Boris Woloszyn and was released by Forge of Doom Miniatures. Unfortunately they had to stop the production due to copyright claims. Apparently they closed the doors completely in the meantime. I’m more than happy to own this magnificent model, by Crom!
