“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 René Goscinny) of “Asterix & Obelix”. As those unbending Gauls were two of my childhood heroes (well, amongst many others) and with the passing away …

Kurgan and Corona

It’s a bit quiet here because there were lots of things to do in the past weeks. Now we have this Corona-crisis going on and that changes day-to-day business immensely. In Germany we are (as in most european countries) forced to stay at home if we can work from home. On Facebook I can read, …

„Aren’t there any normal people left on Earth, or is everybody just back from hell?“

I was never a Spawn fan and wasn‘t even looking for a miniature, but when I saw this one, I had to buy it (next to some Masters of the Universe miniatures, but that‘s another story). I never really liked the 90‘s Spawn movie, but it was interesting enough to watch it a couple times. …
