Who was Thrud?
Thrud the Barbarian is a comics character created by Carl Critchlow in 1981. Although Thrud himself is a parody of Conan the Barbarian, particularly as depicted in the Arnold Schwarzenegger films, inspiration for the character’s adventures and adversaries has been drawn from several fantasy sources. During the 1980s, a Thrud comic strip was a regular strip in White Dwarf.
This model was painted by me and was done in the 1980s using a blending style and minimal washes, with some dry brushing. The rocks on the base are milliput.
