I hope to build up small (50-60 figure) armies for each nation plus personalities and figures for mini-adventures, along with features such as Conan of the Month and Frazetta Friday.
So here goes, plunging into the fray with some Nemedians by Garrison Miniatures. Amazingly still available in the Summer months (Rob stops casting in the winter as his shed gets too cold), although I picked these up on ebay.
I don't think Howard describes how the Nemedian infantry look and Royal Armies of the Hyborean Age by Lin Carter suggests they wear drab homespun clothes, but I decided to paint them in Nemedian livery to match the Royal Nemedian banner of a gold dragon on scarlet. The Garrison range seem to have been designed to follow the descriptions given in the early rule set Royal Armies of the Hyborean Age (as were the Minifigs SS range I think) and the Nemedians have a Teutonic vibe about them (presumably because Nemedia roughly corresponds with Germany on the Hyborian map). I'm not sure this is how I imagine the Nemedians but they are nice figures so what the heck.
More of this army to follow soon....thanks for looking in.
