Conan the Barbarian

I painted a barbarian figure a few weeks ago, patterning it after a scene from the 1982 classic, Conan the Barbarian. Conan and his companions use white and black warpaint which is surprisingly effective at camouflaging them as they climb a rocky hillside into a secret entrance for Thulsa Doom's liar.

I figured that the same camo pattern would work with the snow, so went with a winter base option, similar to the Elsa and Anna figures I painted earlier.  I used Blood for the Blood God Citadel Technical paint from for the blood.

The figure is Traeg the Barbarian from Reaper Miniatures.

Star Wars Armada - MC-80 vs. ISDs

A few weeks ago, Strom and Juice came over early for a gamenight to get a game of Star Wars Armada in beforehand. I have purchased the starter set, but haven't yet broke it open.  This was just the third or so game played, and it was interesting to see the bigger capital ships going head to head.  We haven't played with the objective cards yet and I understand that they add much of the strategy to the game.  I'm mainly waiting for a 3rd faction - i.e. Scum & Villainy, before I jump fully into the game and break open my starter set.
