Can we get a frontal view of that bascinet? I really want to use a design like this but the placement of the ears is proving too much.

Hey, sorry for taking so long to respond - I have been really busy lately. I just started grad school, so a lot of my personal projects have been put on hold. I would love to do another rendition of the Stark bascinet for you, I just don't know when I'll have time. Perhaps once the semester is over in December. Thanks for your patience.

No problem, personal things come first. Really excited since I am trying to design something similar for anthropomorphic characters and your rendition is the closest thing to something realistig and beautiful. Its just really hard when it comes to noses and ears perking up XD

The scabbard is so impractical it hurts XD

Good job though

I've always been fascinated with knights in armour

GOD bless!

This is not Eddard, but the HOUND (Sandor Clegane) since he is wearing the Dog helmet AND the sigil of Lannister (Lion).

That's a dog-faced bascinet with some wolf-head details.

We never get to see Ned's armor and I doubt that Sandor has the only helmet in Westeros that looks like a dog (or in this case a wolf). There are numerous mentions in the books to other animal shaped helmets (bulls and whatnot) so I figured that the head of a major house might own such a helmet.

The coat of arms is actually a wolf as well, which I found in a book of heraldry. What's confusing is that numerous creatures look very similar in Medieval heraldry. But I assure you, this is Ned - just my take on his design.

I've got to say, very, very nice. Realistic looking, nice shape, excellent idea on the helmet. You turned the pigface helms into cool wolf-faces!

The sword puts me in mind of Ice, do you think Ned would have fought with that or was it purely ceremonial?

You can't beat Valyrian steel after all :p

Since it seems the appropriate size (around 1,7 meters) I think it's Ice ;)

The Northmen wouldn't wear a helmet with a figure. They prefer the simplicity of form, and maximum of function.
But the armour is nice.
InfernalFinn Featured By Owner May 8, 2011
It's interesting, because I wanted to make a helmet that was iconic, but still possible to make. I don't know if you've seen the show but their take on the Hound's helmet is a little fantastic for my liking. Anyway, in this series I've been doing, the other houses have armor more akin to 15th century plate, whereas the Starks have an older almost antique set of transitional plate. It may look flashier than you imagined, but the bascinet is still out of date and since there's nothing describing Ned's armor in the books and there's a slew of other animal inspired helmets out there, I figured 'why not' Glad you like the armor!

I don't understand this sword. Surely it would be too top heavy for him to lift with one hand, and it still wouldn't look very stable in two, unless its meant as a jabbing weapon, which wouldn't make much sense based on its shape. Bizarre sword, I give you that.

That sword is an actual sword. It is the Zweihander and was favored by the ritterbruter of the Teutonic order.
InfernalFinn Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2011
It's meant to be a two handed sword, which he is resting on the ground.
