Winter is Coming

I know, the title of this post may be misleading to say the least. Still, I cannot think of a more suitable one that I can think while writing about anything connected with R. R. Martin's "A Game of Thrones". Anyone who read it should agree.
I friend of mine has recently asked me to paint a couple of minis for him and his buddy. They turned out to be three models from Darksword's Masterworks - a range of minis inspired by Martin's work. I read the first tome about ten years ago. Now I felt more inspired to return to his work and immediately ordered first three books from the series. Needless to say, I'm having a blast reading them in the original language.
Now, as far as the minis are concerned, all I can say is wow. The overall quality of the sculpt is great and level of detail is simply amazing. I don't think I've ever seen faces that would be sculpted better than these ones, they're so full of character!



I will write more about the models with better pictures after the weekend. For now I'll leave you with this picture as a snek peek for the things to come.

  1. You've seen there's an HBO series coming this April too, right?

    Winter is indeed coming :)

  2. I know and this is also one of the reasons I'm reading the book right now - I want to finish it before watching the series. And knowing HBO, it should be a very good production (especially taking into account the fact that martin himself is working on the project).
