Forget lead piles, it’s the plastic ones that are taking over: Conan the Board Game

I’ve enjoyed painting up quite a host of the ‘plastic playing pieces’ that I got with Zombicide Black Plague (see related posts). As I’ve mentioned on various posts the quality of the miniatures included with this type of board game has come on in leaps and bounds in the recent past and Conan the Board Game is no exception.

The KS pledge turned up last year but I’ve been a bit slower in tackling the miniatures (still working on the ZBP stuff too). But I thought I should at least paint up the main characters from the core box below. Far less cartoony than the ZBP counterparts, they will easily do double-duty in other Fantasy systems/settings.

  1. Very nice. It is pretty amazing the quality of the minis coming with board games these days. I missed the KS but was coveting the Thaug mini when I saw one painted up.
