Jaime Lannister WIP

I've started painting up my version of Jaime Lannister. He's only about half finished, but I thought I'd post him up anyway.

He's been a really fun model to work on. I think I've captured his character quite well, drawing on both his description in the book and his depiction in the TV series. The trick was balancing the two depictions, especially in regard of his armour. In the books it's described as being bright gold, which I thought would look too tacky, whereas in the series, his armour's in Lannister crimson (clearly the producers took the same opinion as me on the matter). I liked both versions, so I settled on a compromise by giving him golden plate and red cloth to offset the brightness. Even so, I think I might brighten the gold a shade or two before I finish him up.
I'll post more when he's done.


  1. Great choice for Jaime! I've got a couple of suitable bodies lying round, but just can't seem to find the right head for Jaime...

  2. Amon Hen Aragorn was the source for this particular head :) I got two of them from Ebay, one for Tyrion, with a mangled nose, the other for Jaime. I felt it was only fitting, as they're brothers :)
