For a hot minute back in the 80's, TSR, the makers of the legendary Dungeons & Dragons game, released a small but impressive series of game modules based on the son of Cimmeria, probably hoping to cash in on the popularity of the movies. Each module had a picture of Arnold in all is oiled glory. A friend of mine, during a sleep over the Summer after 8th grade, had one of these modules and we were going to play it one night, but when I learned that I couldn't be Conan (this other kid had called dibs), we ended up playing the Barbarian video game all night on his Commadore 64, and there was much rejoicing.
Then my friend was moving away and he was getting rid of a bunch of stuff and in the pile were all of his Conan modules and a bunch of small lead Conan miniatures still in their boxes! I was on them like a drunken Turanian on a dancing harlot, but all of a sudden, my friend's older brother was all like, "Hey! Those are mine!" and it turns out that my friend had "appropriated" them from his older brother without asking and out of sheer spite he wanted them back. Crap!
So, I was so close to owning all of the Conan D&D stuff, only to have it ripped away from me along with a tiny piece of my heart. Hmmm, maybe I'm being a little overdramatic.
Anyway, trolling around eBay one day, I stumbled onto these classic Conan D&D miniatures from TSR and it took me back to those days. I had posted a few pics of this set a long time ago, but these are larger and you can see the minis a bit better. Hell, they're even partially painted, which implies that the person who owned these actually played a game with them! What adventures have these little lead warriors seen?
