"... a tall powerfully built youth, naked but for a loin-cloth, and sandals strapped high about his ankles. His skin was burned brown as by the suns of the wastelands and Arus glanced nervously at his broad shoulders, massive chest and heavy arms, A single look at the moody, broad-browed features told the watchman the man was no Nemedian. From under a mop of unruly black hair smoldered a pair of dangerous blue eyes. A long sword hung in a leather scabbard at his girdle." - Robert E. Howard , The God in the Bowl

wat did u use for the kilt ?
Purity - Wednesday, September 12, 2012
Very Nice! thanks! And what paint brands and colors did you use and in what order?
jessecuster - Wednesday, September 12, 2012
tamiya flat flesh. play around with the skin tone by slowly adding brown and a little red to get the base paint . I can go into detail in the custom forums. I have a WIP thread in workstation custom
forum. I'll post some pics as well

Really, REALLY awesome paint job! This is gonna be reference whenever I paint flesh tones! May I ask what paint styles/techniques you used to get it lookin so great?!?
jessecuster - Tuesday, September 11, 2012
wow Thanx! bronze-tan was so difficult to mix. and even trickier to highlight without making it look like an over painted figure. you should see my Hercules custom when I'm done

edit: woops I didn't answer your question. for years I've been using a technique that's the opposite of dry brushing. I'm not sure if there's a name for it but I think artists call it wet-on-wet. after applying the base coat, I paint the figure by sections. I blend lighter colors on top of darker colors while the paint is still wet, to make the highlights subtle. I still want to feature my sculpting skills so I wouldn't want to cover it up by making it look like I painted over canvass

many thanx again guys! I really wish they got BATISTA for the movie. he's just perfect for the role. He's got the perfect built for CONAN. plus he's agile enough for the action sequences!

I want! This is fantastic and a great piece of customising. This is what customising action figures is all about!

"Conan what is best in Life?"
This figure for one! Sweet custom, masterpiece.
fastfreddie - Sunday, April 1, 2012
a masterpiece by a master! Love it to the utmost degree! I think a long, black haired Batista would've made a fine movie Conan!
RedRebelCustoms - Sunday, April 1, 2012
How the heck did I miss this??? I want one! The musculature and the painting is absolutely PERFECT! Seruously, I want one! This is, I'm speechless!

Perfect Conan, not all that pretty boy crap in the movies. This is the Conan I remember from Howard's books.
Dr.Zom - Monday, March 5, 2012
Another absolutely sick and faithful Conan the Cimmerian, Bravo!
chaosemperor - Monday, March 5, 2012
Knowing there is a lot of incarnations of this character, books, movies, comic books, and animated. This custom brings out the best of all these incarnation in one truely jaw-dropping savage looking figure....BRAVO!!!
jessecuster - Tuesday, March 6, 2012
oh thanx man. batista for me,should've palyed conan. I"m not a batista fan but he fits in perfectly as to how is described in books. except maybe for the blue eyes.
ringomendoza - Monday, March 5, 2012
pffff! I am speechless. picking up my jaw from the floor.
jessecuster - Monday, March 5, 2012
you guys should read the ongoing CONAN series from dark horse comics. Its the perfect reinterpretation of our favorite cimmerian. I think its even better than the actual Robert E Howard stories since the current adaptation is linear.
xGARRIKx - Monday, March 5, 2012
This is, by far, the BEST Conan figure I've ever seen. Simply EXCELLENT!!! The Batista head fits and works PERFECT.
Spartacus - Monday, March 5, 2012

Excellent work! Love the paint job!
suprasizeme - Sunday, March 4, 2012
OMG it looks like a statue!! The craftmanship and paints are on another level..Nigh Omnipotent if you ask me.
jessecuster - Sunday, March 4, 2012
Thanks guys! I prefer to thank each one of you but I understand there's this new format where we can actually reply to individual comments? haven't posted in awhile so I'm not sure how things go around here anymore. this fig is fairly easy to make. all I sculpted was the boots, chin, and a few enhancements to anatomy, the rest are spare parts and paint apps.

The first conan I did was 90% sculpted over a base dremmeled down kevin nash. so that was 10 times more difficult to make. And it was practically a super-poseable resin statue. It was the first and last work I did for someone outside the country -fellow figurerealmer Aneses. Just wanted to make one for myself,,,,, one that I can play with.... I'll post my next fig in a couple of weeks. so you guys just stand by and I hope you'll like it too
Ole Jade Jaw - Sunday, March 4, 2012
