This is a rendition of the Cimmerian as King. I took the look from a combination of reference pics and inspiration from some of the McFarlane figures. I had created the Conan the barbarian custom and modified it to create the more formal version. I covered the hinges with a piece of cotton and covered them with apoxy. Since the figure is bulkier than any other 1:6 figure I had to do a lot of tayloring to fit the clothes. I cut to size and added velcro to the back of the chainmail shirt to fit the figure. The shoulder pieces are modified parts of an Ignite Roman cuirass, I combined the skirt and belt and turned it into one piece, I left a hint of the original loincloth to keep the barbarian spirit (he may be King but he remains a Cimmerian) the helmet was modified to add the horns from a spawn figure. The sword was cortesy of Aneses who has some of the best Conan customs out there thanks Hermano. The sccarab for the sword was made using cardboard glued at the bottom and wraped in arts & craft plastic string the tip was sculpted and the whole thing was attached to the belt with two rings.

This one would have to be my fav of your customs. The clothes look awesome and the fact that Conan is one of my fav right next to Thor. Again great job. Your use of real material looks awesome.

WOW WOW WOW
I love this custom. Love the body you used, the head, the details... It´s awesome. One of the best 1/6th scale Conan I´ve ever seen. Í´m wishing to see more of your customs.
Thanks for your mention.

This is a fine custom job, it almost looks like Conan could come to life. Working with fabric and material is pretty tricky (especially for us guys) you have done an excellent job of combining different elements to depict Conan in battle armour. I have not completed any customs in the 1/6 scale, but this piece certainly makes me want to. That would not make my wife very happy as my "shorties" already take up so much space. The helmet is a little out of scale, but I'm sure you will find a way to either alter it or replace it because this figure deserves that perfect finishing touch. I like the integration of the straps and the "medallion" things, it helps make this figure look authentic and historic. Great job!

Thanks for the praise I ordered the helmet online from Elite Brigade I guess their 1:6 scale have Big Heads I attached the horns later, I still have not found a helmet that fits perfectly maybe in the future when I get more confortable in customizing I'll modify this helmet.

Brilliant job on the clothes and armor, bro! The only flaw is the proportion of the helmet to his head imho. Keep the beautiful figs coming!
