Yes MABO, indeed I had actually seen your creations long ago , which were surely an inspiration for me also at the beggining, as well as other forum members ideas (I also found the same Jon Snow and Jaime lAnnister which I used!)

I just checked those older Game of Thrones entries and I funnily realize that I took the same Redbox medieval irish and Caesar poses for several Stark troop types as you!!! You should reactivate the projecto some day :)

Answering to your question:

1)Many are indeed conversions as all the following:
JAIME LANNISTER: Caesar adventurer (a little taller after increasing legs)
JON SNOW: Caesar adventurer (a little taller after increasing legs)
YGRITTE: ELF ARCHER figure from Boardgame "wAR OF THE rING", ears cut and some fur added
ARYA: body from revell normal + head from fantasy 15mm demonworld range
HODOR (body made from Games workshop mordor orcs parts + head from Zvezda mediaval peasant)
BRAN: Body is bad copy from Airfix french cuiassiers+head from Hat andalusian archer)
BRIENNE: Body from Miniart italian knight + italeri young gaul head (didn choose the available mounted version form Italeri Jean dArc :))
LITTLEFINGER. Converted from an strelets streltsi+norman head
VARYS: adapted Body from Linear A people of judah + strelets fat saxon head
OSHA: Body from redbox russian fighting monk + again head from young italeri gaul (quite good for androgine men-women types as you see..)
GREATJON UMBER: Body form a 28mm viking+head form an orion slav+paper tissue cloak
TYWIN LANNISTER: mounted body dfrom Henry V Italeri knights + head from zvezda peasant
NIGHT KING: Body from Orion byzantine general + very handcrafted head orignally from a 15mm Goblin

2) Not conversions (or just very small adptations) :
THE HOUND, CERSEI LANNISTER, TYRION LANNISTER, NED STARK, ROBB STARK
All original figure form Caesar Minknight "game of thrones" set, not a bad set at all in my opinion although they looked a little odd ath the begginng ...Some of them ressemble much the TV actors after painting
CATELYN STARK. metal 25mm fig form "Mega Miniatures /turnkey miniatures"
SANSA STARK: metal 25mm fig form "Thunderbolt mountain miniatures2 (sadly discontinued production klas year)
MELISSANDRE: Caesar female Vampire with appropiate "red" painting
WOLVES SUMMER, GHOST AND GREYWID. original Ral Partha 28mm different wolves still available at their online shop


Troops:
STARK SWORDSMEN: Some Caesar foot XIII c knights and foot crusaders, and also some italeri crusaders and norman to make the numbers
UMBER BERSERKERS: some strelets vikings, and orion slavs with some conversion here and there
STARK HORSEMEN: direclty taken from REDBOX Scurrers and Scottish light Cav (perfect for the job!)
STARK BOWMEN: CAesar foot XIII soldiers+ Redbox scottish

SOME CHARAHCTERS, STANDARD BEARER AND STARK GREAT AXES: Redbox irish

LANNISTER SWORDSMEN: Caesar foot XIIII soldiers+ XIII foot knights+ XV c knights +redbox menatarms and retinue, plus revell knights to make the numbers
LANNISTER HELBARDIERS: Redbox Men At arms and retinue
LANNISTER CROSSBOWMEN: Redbox, Miniart and Zvezda different medieval sets
LANNISTER KNIGHTS: SOME REDBOX MOUNTED MEN AT ARMS AND SCOTTISH HEAVY, plus revell knights to make the numbers

WHITE WALKERS: Alliance elves

Still also collecting suitable figurtes for NIGHT WATCH and WILDLINGS.. I will inform soon :)
And after that: Unsullied, Maybe some Bolton, Men of Iron, HOuse baratheon (stannis)..House Tyrell.. Lets see..

Thank you for this bunch of informations. And thank you as well for the kind words about my work. I hope to continue some day, but I think you know the problem of many ideas and many different figures on the table.

I will keep you informed about any progress, of course.

Btw: Do you already know this range?

Heje , yes I know that range, they are around 40mm , very beautiful and extremely expensive..

Actually I am adapting this interesting and easy ruleset to play with my own 1/72 "production" ; it is some kind of "light"warhammer with inclusion of "non combat units" or chRschters which are very relevant in Game of Thrones universe

I found this game casually in November while I was searching inspiration pictures for my work!! It was a nice discovery!!

I saw the figures at the Crisis last November. They are really nice but in a box there are not so many different poses.

As said before, I prefer your version of this! Much better than George RR Martin's! I know that he is a collector of toy soldiers too (knights in some bigger scale I think). Two questions: who is the akward guy in the background?:

Image

And is that Pippi Longstocking in the background???:

I think you mean the red figure..

It comes from a boardgame named DESCENT
Some painted closeups of that model here (not mu work) the y aré scale 25mm, good as half trolls or whatever

The armies are building up nicely with some cracking figure choices, and I really like the pyromancers.

The personalities Are excellent as usual. Ramsay and Reek are very convincing. In fact Ramsay looks just like him, I hope the dogs are hungry.

As the final Season is going on and approaching to end, I had to actualize some items in my project..

Hope you like my Targaryen forces as well as the 2 showed grown up Daenery´s Dragons: black Drogon and green Rhaegal (many of you surely guess why also Jon Snow is there..)

The unsullied spearmen are made in a easy low-risk way, taking Nexus greek hoplites as base figures and making small converison and painting job on them.. I think it works

Like your work more than the books (haven't watched the TV-series), but most of all I totally love your hobby-corner!
