The King is dead! Long live the King!
The most patient person beyond the wall. Well, the Wall is no more… so just the most patient and determined one – full point. Night King would be an awesome scale modeller.
So deliberate at the Massacre of Hardhome; on his wrinkled face there was almost a hint of amusement as John Snow reduced one of his vassals to icicles. “So, the pretty one has a blade that can cut. Hmm, I guess I ought to collect that dragon after all…” Does he know it all, or he enjoys the trill of chance? Standing there on the icy shores of the Wildling village, with raised arms he commits all the slain to his cause. Amazing moment!
Speaking of that wrinkled face, after watching many a YouTube tutorials on skin-tone blending, highlights and shadows and realistic eye-ball painting, I was non the wiser. He doesn’t have whites of the eyes, his face structure doesn’t allow for any of the usual tricks with the brush to work and his cheeks wouldn’t blush even if Khaleesi dropped her robes in front of him.
So here’s my first 1:16 head, painted mostly in shades of grey. I will be more comfortable with his armour, where I can use some of the skills I already have…
Being an injection-plastic kit, there IS some assembly required. Apart from his scull being a three-piece joint, the fingers on both hands are cast separately and there is some work to be done before they are seamlessly blended with the rest of the arms.
Winter is coming!
