“Let me die, not in hunger, but in combat!”

I had a lot of fun painting Subotai, fellow of Conan. Right now I want to explore how to paint skin and faces. For that cause some barbarians from the world of Conan seem to be about right. The miniature is one of the old ones from Rogue Miniatures (now sold via Calliver Books). The sculpting is a bit rough and Subotai appears to be bulkier than Gerry Lopez really was, but that gave me the opportunity to paint some muscles.

Did you know that Gerry Lopez was dubbed in the movie because director John Milius was not pleased with his voice? Lopez was a professional surfer and not an actor, he wasn’t experienced in using his voice. How good that he didn’t have much text anyway!
