It's Friday — which means it's time to party, sword and sandal-style. To help you get into the right mindset for a properly barbaric weekend, we've painstakingly assembled some of the most glorious barbarian art on the internet. Including lots of Conan and Red Sonja, but also tons of other great sword-wielding heroes.
