Have a little GOT project on the go: styled as per the TV series and not the books (which I haven't read  Wink).

Two of my favourite factions are the Boltons and the Wildings, and I plan 20 foot for each.

I've started with the Boltons and GoT-fandom has pretty much provided all the research I need, except for two things...... Any help would be greatly appreciated as I don't have the DVDs to look back.

1) an image of a good rear view of a foot soldier, showing the make-up of the leathers, etc, that are worn over the armour/mail



2) confirmation that for the pendants and flags, the area to the right of the sigil is plain red (ie, without imagery or text) ..... (In the preceding image I think that the black mark on the red of the pendant is maybe a tear)



Many thanks  Smiley

FYI, the Boltons will be conversions of Perry HYW metals using parts from their plastic WotR boxes and also from the plastic Conquest Normans. I'm expecting a fair amount of GSing to get the outer leathers right  Cheesy

Btw, one thing I'm not sold on is their portrayal as using recurve bows rather than longbows: given their lands are wooded, the recurves strike me as stylisation for TV (the Wildlings will be getting recurves instead).  Wink

If I see any pies, chips, gravy, whippets or flat caps in your figures I won't be happy  Evil

Whippets are the wrong side of the country but some bozo always mentions them  Roll Eyes

Oh, blimey!
You as well?

You really should not let the other boys talk you into things, ya know.

Seriously, though, I look forwrd to seeing your work on this as I know that you have plenty of raw material to work with on this one so I know it will be good.

Thank you Paul  Cheesy

No doubt the second option will prove better.

And it also sounds like your mojo is well and truly in the groove for this one.

Burn it? I have form on that!  Grin

Anyways, all this fantasising about whippet drawn pod racers with drivers wearing flat caps while eating pies dunked in gravy (with a side* of fat chips to upgrade it from 'tea' to 'supper') is fascinating but doesn't answer my most important question ......

...... What does one of Ramsay Bolton's leather-clad soldiers look like from behind? I've poured over soooooo many YouTube vids but can I find a clip? No!







*Side? Side! What am I talking about?! They'd just come in the same wrapper* as the pie






*And by wrapper I mean a sheet from yesterday's newspaper, probably the page with the whippet racing form/results

And back on topic  Wink

I managed to find the answer to the pendant/banner question.... The red section is actually toothed.

You forgot to mention black pudding...

Those have to be the silliest pseudo-medieval helmets I've ever seen in any TV series anywhere ever. Please don't do those Steve.

For what it's worth I think they've got the sigil wrong too. The flayed man is described as red on a pink field. I think the TV art director just made those banners up. Still, if it's the TV look you're after, fair enough  Wink

I think you're right about the longbow.

I've only done three Boltons so far, Roose, Ramsay and a mate. But I'm going to do some more soon...

I'm really looking forward to see what you come up with! I love GoT threads and really should go back to my own... Roll Eyes

I think if you'd sculpt some guys, you really should cast them and sell them in your store; no mattter what faction you'll be doing, I'll buy them anyways, as I love both your style and GoT mini's Smiley
