A Song of Ice and Fire - commission

 I have a new commission on my painting table.

the box art

A fellow tabletop gamer, who has less time to paint than I, has commissioned me to paint this fantastic game set, based on the popular Song of Ice and Fire series, also known as Game of Thrones.

the whole grouping

the minis are molded in colored plastic

they are 'bendy' which will keep things
like the pikes and sword from breaking too often

details are well represented on the models

there were limited error or seams that needed
any green stuff for correction

The cleaning has been done, now mounting to the painting sticks.

They are excellent figures. Should be fun to paint.

They are certainly well detailed.

My main concern is with the 'flexible' parts ... while they will keep from breaking - I believe that paint will have a tendency to 'flake off' in the bendy parts.

Always a danger but I have had pretty good success over the years, in some cases decades including mistreatment. That's just doing the usual plastic thing, wash well, prime and paint with flexible acrylic paint and varnish well, brush on acrylic being toughest. There's lots of ways though.

Good luck!
