That's a whole lotta Conan!

I wonder if bookshelves in the HeroQuest world look like that? "I'm searching for treasure." "You find a dog-eared copy of Planescape Monstrous Compendium III." "Woohoo!" :lol:

But the Witch Lord is giving me a stern glare... so to get back on topic, the next question is: if his backstory roughly fits someone from Warhammer, which miniature would best represent him? (And Skulmar and Kessandria?) I'm leaning toward a Wight from the classic Undead range.


I have all of the stories written by Robert E. Howard about Conan and a few of his other characters before his untimely death, and all of the Conan pastiche books written by others after him (some 150+ or so not counting comics and magazines of which I have many.) As far as I know I have a complete Conan the Barbarian book collection.

Think how valuable a monstrous compendium find would be to adventurers in-game. Thinking about the real world value of some of the items on my bookshelf and it would indeed be a treasure hoard for the lucky adventurer or for my descendants. I like to imagine I have a library of mystical and magical tomes of some great scholar or sage unrivaled by most in a fantasy world.
I've always found it odd that the bookcase, weapon rack, Alchemist's bench, and cupboard/cabinet cannot be searched themselves like a chest can and no treasure or items were ever developed specifically for them. Makes the furniture in HeroQuest seem more like obstacles than real items and far less interesting. For heaven sakes what is in the book on the sorcerer's table?! Even the tomb should be searchable for burial items in my opinion.

I have quite a few early GW/citadel/marauder wights and skeleton warrior figures, I will have to take a look. Early Warhammer Banshees could also work for Kessandria.
