I’m such a sucker for George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series, and I am definitely one of those waiting eagerly for the April debut of HBO’s TV series based on the book. Normally, I have misgivings about my favorite books being turned into TV series and movies, but with Martin himself being very active in the production, the series should live up to many a fan’s expectations. He’s also been active in promoting derivative works related to his series, including figures from Dark Sword Miniatures. ((Dark Sword Miniatures))
Earlier today, George R.R. Martin published a note on Facebook, leaking images of the newest batch of miniatures from the series. I think it’s perfect timing, with a lot of people getting excited about the HBO series. Here’s a sneak peek.
Maester Luwin, who is one of the cornerstones of Winterfell. Martin gives this design a thumbs up and tells us to take a close look at the maester’s chain that he is wearing: “Purists should take special note of the maester’s chain about Luwin’s neck. Tom’s is the most accurate visualization of the chain-of-many-metals I have seen to date. This is how I have always pictured these chains, and how I described them in my books. (though I should mention that Pycelle’s chain is much grander, larger, and more ostentatious, him being the GRAND Maester and all).”
Obviously, the figures are not completed yet, but if these images are anything to go by, they should be as awesome as the older figures I wrote about last year: Song of Ice and Fire Miniatures by Dark Sword.
