Little Metal Eddard

I found this kit, an Andrea Miniatures mini of Sir Lawrence Hastings, the Earl of Pembroke a while ago. It struck me how much it looked like Eddard "Nedd" Stark, standing with Ice, his Valyrian steel sword.

And if you don't know who or what that is - go you, and read "A Game of Thrones" by George R.R. Martin.

So, I did my best to paint him up like Nedd Stark. I'm not wholly pleased with it - my principle disappointment being that I couldn't free-hand paint a direwolf to save my life. Mostly it appears that Nedd has some sort of vicious marshmallow beast on his shield - obviously the herarldic charge of the Lord of S'mores...

But, whatever the case, I stayed up last night more or less finishing this, and I'm going to give the results to Mr. Martin at his signing tomorrow.

There's a couple more pictures on the flickr page, if you're curious. I used Pegaso paints, if that's of interest to anyone, too. Their colors and metallics are the best, though I will still stick with Games Workshop inks for washes, they're far and away the best for that.

No, since he looks fairly young, I'm imagining this was probably during the Greyjoy Rebellion. He'd have worn armor into battle, of course.
