The diorama comes complete with the Barbarian, Princess, Priestess and the Altar itself which is just looking insane. It was sculpted by Joaquin Palacios and looks like it has been ripped right from the cover of one of the comics or books set in the world of Conan.
Black Sun do some great stuff with their smaller scale miniatures and manage to work in all manner of details to their figures, but with something at this scale they certainly open up the possibilities for them to explore their characters in more depth.
Now you just have to work out how you’re going to paint up this immense piece. I imagine working on each of the characters individually would be a good start and then working your way up through the different elements before assembling it.
You’re going to have a lot of skin tones to work with as well as bright colours for the Priestess. Maybe you could even consider looking at some object source lighting from those blazing torches?
What do you think of the diorama?
