There has been a couple of propaints I have seen out there, John Allred showing us what’s possible with his paintup of your Barbarian, I have also seen Saul and Hannah doing incredible paintwork with their versions, that’s whyI will always be greatful that ARH produced these Frazetta pcs, I see their potential instead of the prepaint shortcomings.

I consider the Frazetta pieces part of the foundation of my collection. I have kept the following ARH pieces from ARH's peak.
Barbarian EX (Allred Paint)
Death Dealer (Cantu Paint)
Virgin of Mahars Dio Prototype
Arkhalla Seduction
Medusa Victorious EX
Virgin of Mahars
Sha-Ryn

Anyone have any idea of latest events with Arahom?
Had a look at the Facebook account and the last posts were from October 2021 - where he was selling off the very last remaining of his personal collection.

Arahom moved back to Brazil and he’s focused entirely on comic books and story telling at this point. I really enjoyed working with him for the couple years that I did. It was crazy. Often rocky. He and I butt heads more than once. He had was extremely passionate and had a temper. But honestly he is one of the best people I’ve come across in this industry. Did he make mistakes? Yup. Did he over reach and over overpromise? Yup. You guys think losing a couple grand in statues was bad? He was shorting my paycheck every month for over a year haha. But I hung in there. Even after Blizzard offered me a job I was hesitant becuse I honestly believed in what arahom and I were doing. Long story short- dude bit off more than he could chew. It’s practically a miracle he could keep things going as long as he did. I’ll always love and appprciate that guy. For his passion, his crazy ideas, his outsized personality… but in this industry it takes a some balance to make things work. And Arahom is a better artist than he is a business man. I really hope one day we get a Netflix Arkhalla series in the vein of Spartacus Blood and Sand. That’s his dream. I still believe in him … even if he is a crazy ----er.

Good to hear from you and some insight as well. Are you still working with Blizzard these days? What have been your most recent projects?

Wow thanks for the closure on ARH.
Weird to know they?re gone. I?ve still got my customised Tarzan Primal Rage as my center piece.
That and Conan Sacrifice are two giant dios that could have only been made by a crazy person.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
