Dark Sword Does Jon & Arya

Here's a great new 54mm release from my friends at Dark Sword Miniatures: a Winterfell set with Jon Snow and Arya Starrk, before time and chance sent them on their separate paths.





The sculpts are from the incomparable Tom Meier.

For more shots of this set, and a lot of other great miniatures in the Ice & Fire range (not to mention the ranges based on the art of Jim Elmore, Keith Parkinson, etc), visit Dark Sword's own website at http://darkswordminiatures.com/

These look great!

Although I do find it ironic that you misspelled Stark, seeing as you've probably written that word more than pretty much any one else. ;-)

Wow, these are very impressive for such a small size! And his version Jon is the closest to how I imagine him.

They both have the faces I imagined when reading your descriptions. You can see the family resemblance.

Gorgeous! This makes me want to start painting minis!

It's a shame that the beautiful Dark Sword sculpts have such an akward scale...

Only true if you're trying to make them fit in with your wargaming armies. Which would be a waste of the incredible detail on Dark Sword's "usual" scale Ice & Fire minis anyhow, since it would be impossible to notice in the midst of an army IMO; they're primarily meant for collectors and display painters, not gamers (though some gamers aren't that fussy about that sort of thing, and I'd argue they'd be excellent for RPG use). Nobody else is selling truly realistically proportioned minis (that I am aware of), and Dark Sword isn't big enough to really compete against GW and the other massive players in the wargaming minis biz. So to me, making these so unique to appeal to collectors (and fans of the books of course) was a brilliant move on Dark Sword's part. Pretty sure they have won multiple awards for this line of minis too.

Besides, these particular guys are in 54mm scale anyhow, much bigger than most armies and most of the rest of Dark Sword's GRRM line, which is somewhere in the 28-32mm scale range. I never heard of anyone wargaming with 54mm minis; these are even more clearly designed with the collector in mind than the normal scale Dark Sword Ice & Fire line.

That piece looks incredible, as do other sets on the site you provided. I would be in heaven if they re-created the Stephen Youll Jon Snow image.

Doesn´t Arya look too old?

Aged Stark Children
Both the Jon and Arya sculpts look too old, very adult.
