I really should begin quoting the novel: 'Know, oh prince, that between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities...'
But this is about the movie, so let the silence be heard; the lone drum... and Mako's deep voice:
'Between the time when the oceans drank Atlantis, and the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of. And onto this, Conan, destined to wear the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow. It is I, his chronicler, who alone can tell thee of his saga. Let me tell you of these days of high adventure!'

I have to ask you to be indulgent with this model. I painted it loooong years ago (maybe about fifteen? Maybe even almost up to twenty; it should have been about the early-mid nineties, give or take). It was my first non-28mm., a 54mm. model by Andrea Miniatures.
This obviously needs being repainted, but I still wanted to show it to you, as I'm a huge fan of the character and the movie. I mean the only movie that has been shot. Nope, there has not been any sequel. Nor any reboot. Only one Conan movie was ever shot.
I have lots (tons!) of pending work on my queue, but I must find some room for this model again...
