hiya hiya hiya


I may have been guilty of premature froggery in the "Hiya, Kids" post below.

Second season casting is in full swing, yes.

And we're close on a few roles. Choices made, that is to say, but now we wait on HBO approval, and then of course we have to make a deal. Not all deals close, much as you would like them to. There's budget to consider, scheduling, all sorts of things.

On other roles, well, we've seen a lot of readings, but we're not in love yet. So the auditions continue. In Ireland, in London, even in LA.

Bottom line: no one has been cast yet, so stop holding your breath.

When we do sign some new cast, Froggy will give you the hints.

(Unless someone else breaks the news first).

((Or unless it's after June 13. That's the day I leave for Poland. I'll be out of the loop while overseas, so after that date, the announcements are more like to come from elsewhere)).

Painted Miniatures

Dark Sword Miniatures has posted lovely pictures of some painted versions of their latest crop of Ice & Fire miniatures over to their website. Gorgeous stuff. I thought I'd share them.

Here's Varys the Spider, painted by the amazing Jen Haley.

And here's Bronn, son of no one in particular, again by Jen Haley.

And this one is Benjen Stark, First Ranger of the Night's Watch, painted by Marike Reimer.

These figures, and the rest of the range, are all available (unpainted) from the Dark Sword website at Lots more pictures there as well... including the two latest additions to the range, sculpted by the incomparable Tom Meier -- King Robert I Baratheon, and Lord Tywin Lannister.
