I needed a break from painting the red brotherhood pirates ( I’ll post them soon ) so I decided to tackle some monsters
The first mini is from Alternative Armies japanese Sengoku range. It’s an oni a kind of japanese orc/ogre but when I saw it I immediately thought “Efreeti”
A bit of filework changed his sword to a big scimitar and softened down the hard edges of his trousers making him look a bit less samurai and a little more 1001 nights but don’t take my word for it here’s a pic
The other figures are a true Conan classic, “Grey Apes”
Also from Alternative Armies these just required a paintjob to take them from gorilla to their Hyborian counterparts.
Sadly there was only one pose so they all look more or less the same
That’s it for now, pirates to follow soon…
