A final pic i highlighted the skin a bit and thought id add the picture
The pallet views so far, I find it is easier to work once you have colours on the pallet and yes they varnish some times but easy to replace . the thinning of the paint is a good thing and being able to return very good and saves time. the over all thought I will use this and hopefully get a more easy painting time. I would suggest at least to any painter to give it a try. I have always used layers and perhaps block paint to my miniatures , this gives a flow and I would say saves on opening bottles and lids and paint in general.
As always my views only not wrote in stone. I will post pics of the rest when finished. thanks for looking at my blog as always .

Decided to play test my new game and on reading and watching videos I laid it out, and got into it!
The first scenarios is to rescue a princess from a Pict village I played this 3 times and won the last the other I ran out of time , after game turns I found the game play very easy and the combat has to be exact , the use of gems is so important and you do run out fast. Scenario one is not easy.
Dice rolls like this when you can leve makes short work of enemies.
That sorts out enemies also (holy hand grenade of Antioch?)
The last game Conan just cut a path through the mage character Hadrathus is very powerful on the heroes side.
Second Scenario is a trap to kill Belit on her ship the Tigress, is actually very well thought our involving jumping from one ship to another,. Monolith published the revised rules in English so after a read through I set about again in the days of high adventure.
The players screens are as all excellent quality
Conan and his friend Shevatas made short work of the pirates
the hand grenade again made great use
The pirate captain lasted a bit longer but Conan sent him to Crom, the allocation of gems makes you think about a killing blow and the dice some times don't roll but it is a great system
The Evil mage even transforming into a demon made no use as Belit was saved
Conclusion: Very enjoyable game loads of ideas and the game play work for me, I have been a Huge Conan fan since the 60s so I have scenarios in my head and other ideas for this game . If you are a Conan fan and gamer then this is a must.

As many know I have a vast collection of miniatures and wanted for a long time to use at least some that have never seen the table top. I have a huge Heroclix collection and file boxes full so ..
Time is with me I looked over the wonderful Dragon rampart and made up 2 forces from my Heroclix and Shadowking file boxes. basic fight scenario on a 3X3
Shadowkings(Elite foot) force himself, Ro-man (Greater war beast) Deadend (light shooters), Flashman(bellicose foot) and Sir Alec (heavy missiles)
The Heroclix, Bats (elite foot), Omac, (Elite foot),, Red hood (Light foot/ shoot), She hulk, and Black Swan (Bellacose)
The Clix easy move on the table
Sir Alecls group find there targets in the ruins
Flashes gang run to engage
"Fire at will" (why is it always poor Will) Alecs group spots she hulks group and fires
3 of she hulks gang are felled she rolls courage and this happens
Red hood tries to avenge and fails a shoot roll
Flashman charges in
he defeats the Red hood who after retreating fails miserabley his courage roll joining She hulk
Black Swans group must charge the might Ro-mans gang
they force them back slaying one of the monsters
Bats must act and he charges into Flashman
Wiping him out
Black Swan again attacks her group shoving Ro-man back again
Bats attempts to finish Ro-man but fails and is himself threw back
Wolff makes his move battering the Batman
he fails and is removed
Dead end fires at Omac's gang reducing them with very lucky shots
he falls back retreating and fails again
Ro-man chases off the last band, victory to the Shadowking.
Very enjoyable little book keeping and it was what i needed fun. more mad games to come.
