Some More Cool Miniatures

Just because.

Here's another one from Jen Haley. This is the Night's Watch raven keeper figure from Dark Sword, but since I've already got several examples of him in NW black, I had her do this one as a Stark retainer. Not quite how I picture Maester Luwin, but maybe his predecessor.





And here is Jen's take on Loras Tyrell, the Knight of Flowers, one of Tom Meier's most spectacular sculpts.




Jen is not the only painter I use (I no longer seem to have the time or energy to paint myself, but even when I did, I was nowhere in the class of the "hired brushes" I employ).

Here's a piece by Matt Verzani, Dark Sword's official house painter. It's the archer figure from the Night's Watch, another great Tom Meier piece, but in this case we've painted him as Theon Greyjoy. (We have an actual Theon figure coming, sculpted by Jeff Grace, and greens can be seen on the Dark Sword website, but that one hasn't been released yet).




Next we have another Verzani, this one his paint of Rattleshirt, the Lord o' Bones. This time the sculpt is by Jeff Grace.


Another fine painter that I commission from time to time is Dave Gulczynski of WarPaint Miniatures. Here's his version of the lady of the court.


And finally this one, Dave's version of one of Jeff Grace's wildling figures, the spearwife with the sword.



There's lots more, but that should hold you for now. Enjoy.

Rattleshirt
I'd forgotten Rattle Shirt had that much pizazz. That hatchett he's carrying looks like it could give someone a serious headache.

The Knight of Flowers sure looks dandy.

As I remember Rattleskirt was described as a smaller man covered with bones and the use of a giants skull as a helm. Still a nice figure. Any chance of one made of Tywin or The Mountain?

Wow, nifty. I especially like that Theon one. Theon himself is a bit of a dick, but that's what makes him such a fun character.

Loras and Theon look great, but the decolletage on the "Lady of the Court" still makes me laugh.

You do have to wonder how her dress stays on. I'm going with super-glue...

Beautiful!

Loras looks particularly dashing. Though I HATE Theon, he looks great. :D

Ditto on turning the archer into Theon -- great idea, and ver well-executed. Love the cloak (and the kraken inspired by Rich Boyé's most excellent rendition).

The spearwife's cloak is *amazing*. *Wow*!

First time I ever see Loras look like what I imagined him to be!

Great quality stuff.
