Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash: Pick Two

Little Metal Eddard

Originally uploaded by aghrivaine.
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.
