Conan has stepped out onto the battlefield alongside a whole bunch of additional heroes and monsters as the campaign on Kickstarter bursts through the $2 million mark. There’s a neat interview with Adrian Smith above too!
Here’s a look at some of the new add-ons that are coming your way for the world of Conan. Not only is the King coming (a closer look at him below) but there’s big monstrous creatures like Thaug and even a Camel to punch (remember that scene in the film?)!
King Conan himself is going to be based on a number of different pieces of artwork with the first one, which is a free upgrade for those who pledge as a King, by Gary Gianni. I think it’s a very commanding piece although I don’t like that Conan has developed foot-on-rock syndrome. I like the aged and tired look to him though as he’s grown more noble.
The other artwork has been done by Xavier Collette and looks awesome once again as an alternative take on the pair that is Conan and Belit. At this point you’ve got about three or four versions of the pair! Once again a noble looking Conan and a lithe and deadly looking Belit who seems intent to steal everything you own.
Last but not least you might have spied another expansion for the game! The Nordheim expansion takes Conan into the frozen North and has you fighting against the deadly Vanir and more. You can see some of the artwork and the miniature for these fiery bearded individuals. I think this might end up being my favourite expansion although I do like the Stygian one too.
There’s also some important but less ‘cool’ information in the form of some costs for shipping if you’re interested!
Which King Conan do you prefer?
