Wight (16203)

1:16 ICM via Hannants

This chap is described as a “Wight”, but one look at the box art makes it eminently clear that it’s one of the undead army from Game of Thrones.  If you ignore the last season especially, it was quite a show and there will still be lots of fans out there that thought (like me) that the last season was unfulfilling, but doesn’t detract from the earlier seasons.

 

We have had a few of these figures from ICM, the Great Other (White Walker – here, and the King of the Night (White King – here, all in 1:16 scale, and all with the same style of bases so you can build up a nice collection.  Arriving in a top-opening box with captive inner lid, with a sprue of grey styrene, another in black, plus a single oval base.  There is also a poster of the artwork that fits within the box for you to keep, plus a sheet of instructions that has a sprue diagram and paint code table in the rear.

The parts on the sprue are well-moulded and have various textures as appropriate for this rather stinky, rotten fellow.  He’s wearing the remains of some trousers with cloth shoes, and bits of armour on his shoulders, butt and one of his feet, with a patch of chain-mail on his groin, held up by an old belt.  The rest of his tunic is missing below his rib cage, and his chest is easily seen through the gaps and holes in his clothes, which is achieved by adding sections of the outer layer over the chest.  The arms are as thin and desiccated as the chest, and the head is equally thin, damaged and puckered, with lips shrunk back and teeth bared.  Altogether a scary visage, as you can see from the magnified part of the photo.  In his right hand he is carrying an old axe, which has his fingers separate in order to latch onto the axe.

The base is moulded in black, and has a top and bottom plate to close up the fluted sides, and if you elect to add some groundwork that should make for easier creation and allows you not to bother with masking during the process.

 

Conclusion

If you’re a Game of Thrones fan this is definitely one for you, but it’s generic enough to also have a number of alternative uses if you’re a general figure painter.

 

Highly recommended.
