Awesome work! Love this piece, still one of my favorites. I remember the horns were being done differently but there were last minute changes at the request of the Frazettas. There was an early picture shown on one of the forums of the reg head with metal horns. I always see different things when I look at the painting.

Went pokin around and found the original pics posted by Averone. I remember being confused at the time why they got switched. Also some were confused which was the EX head because they had been saying the EX came with bone horns lol. Oh well

1st Helmet looks good with bone or metal horns, the 2nd IMO doesn’t look good with bone horns, I am glad they went with metal horns for the 2nd exclusive helmet.

The first one looks like the original helmet on the Frazetta portraits but why they do not use it?

Put some bloodwork on Frazetta Conan sword, also added a thicker broadsword to changeout for a more aggressive over the top look.

I asked also at the time, they said the original painting has bone horns. I dont have a good print of the painting but from what I can tell online, it might be the case. The coloring is a bit different than the spike, but could be shadows I dont know. That was the explanation they gave so I guess it came down from Frank Jr. I always thought they were metal too.

I agree with warhead that head two looks much better with the metal horns.
