Even more pictures from Howard Days 2011

Here are some great shots of Amy and myself taken during the Conan movie panel at Robert E Howard Days 2011. The folks from Paradox Entertainment were kind enough to bring some of the actual props from the upcoming movie and let us get a hands on look at them.

Here is the sword wielded by the character Corin played by Ron Perlman:

Here I am with a preview copy of the upcoming Munchkin Conan expansion by Steve Jackson Games. I believe it is set to be released around the time of the movie and will be another 15-16 card “booster pack” style expansion similar to Fairy Dust and Munchkinomicon. I can’t wait.

Here is Amy trying on a set of finger claws worn by Rose McGowan’s character, Marique:

This is a shot of Khalar Zym’s double bladed sword. Zym is played by Stephen Lang.

And last but not least, here is a shot of me wielding Conan’s sword. At first I was kind of skeptical of Jason Momoa in the role, but after the panel I’m feeling a bit more confident.

Feel free to check out all of the other wonderful pictures we took during our trip. Hope you guys enjoy and perhaps you will make the trip to Cross Plains next year? :)

Pictures from Robert E Howard Days 2011

Amy had a great time taking pictures during our trip to and from Cross Plains for Howard Days. Here are some of my favorites.

This was the first Half-Price Books we stopped at on the way there. This is in Ft. Worth, TX.

This is a mural painted on the side of the Cross Plains Library. Amy took this from the back of a trailer while on the guided tour of Cross Plains Friday morning.

This is Rusty Burke, one of the founding members of Howard days and a leader in the REH fan community. This was taken during the same guided tour.

These are some quick shots of the front of the Howard House which is now been restored and is a museum run by volunteers from Project Pride.

This is a shot of me with Philip J Reed of Steve Jackson Games. I met Mr. Reed via Twitter and had the pleasure of being able to pick his brain a little over lunch at Jean’s Feed Barn in Cross Plains.

This is a shot of Amy and Rusty Burke. That is one tall guy. I had to back up quite a ways to be able to get at least this much of the two of them in the shot.

Just a few of the Howard books and magazines on display at the Cross Plains library. Would love to get a copy of that Weird Tales featuring Howard’s story “Red Nails”.

Here is a link to the full album with over 225 pictures. More will be added soon.
