From the Eastern swordmaster training scene, the poor guy who got kicked in the groin for smirking when Conan got slapped. Looks like he was Arnold's double for the movie as well.

Thanks! Is he the same fella that Arnold cuts down first in the swords against the cult sequence?

Dont know for sure, but being that that they recycled the warriors(Vanir/Doom warriors), sure its possible.

Hehe. Sure looks like the same guy as much as you can tell from the back, then the guy who tosses the blood over his shoulder later in the same scene looks like him again. I suppose it just makes good sense to recycle the extras and get your money's worth out of them.
Thanks again for the name.

According to this, Milius re-used him as different characters a few times in RED DAWN. So he surely does this kinda thing, sure its common practice besides.

^Seems also the name inspiration for "Rexor".

*One of my pet theories was that Arnold was re-dressed as a Vanir Raider for the raid on the Cimmerian village. Arnold remebered this scene on the DVD very vividly too which makes me think it was more than just small publicity photographs and a bit of footage for the Journey to the Mounds montage.
