Review Winter Lord by Nocturna

    Hi Everyone,
    Some time ago, Nocturna Models released the Winter Lord mini bust. The bust has a very close resemblance to Eddard 'Ned' Stark from HBO's Game of Thrones television series. Game of Thrones has become a popular subject for fantasy miniatures (e.g., Dark Sword Miniatures, Nuts Planet). I am a fan of the television series and decided to pick up the bust to paint while I listen to the audiobooks.

    Reference: WW01 Winter Lord

    Scale: 1:18 (45 mm)

    Material: Gray resin

    Number of pieces: 2

    The miniature comes in a sturdy plastic box with a painted reference on the front.

    Parts come in a plastic bag.

    Parts consist of main torso with head and hands holding swords.

    There is minimal cleanup and filling in the main body (mold line on back and some pin holes) and two small plugs to remove from the hands. The resin has a nice hard feel without being brittle. The detail in the face and hands is excellent.

    Final thoughts: Finely detailed bust with excellent cast quality. Highly recommended for expanding a Game of Thrones miniature collection, or for the fantasy painter who wants to paint a smaller scale bust. I look forward to painting it up!

    Thanks for reading,
