The Hound and the Little Bird by InfernalFinn The Hound and the Little Bird by InfernalFinn
Sandor Clegane, "The Hound" from George RR Martin's series A Song of Ice and Fire. This design is more than a little inspired by the wonderful costuming of the HBO show with some alterations - most notably the helmet. I'm more a fan of practical and utilitarian designs than the super ornate and sculptural helmet of the show.

I really hope one of the mod guys for  Skyrim or The Witcher create these in the games.

I would be honored if someone did that and I would love to download it as well, considering I am in the middle of playing both games haha.

Then again, the Hound's helmet is instantly recognisable in the books (after some outlaw steals Sandor's helmet, everyone takes him for the Hound). I love practical designs too, but I think GRRM did intend for this helmet to be a bit more grotesque.

Looks great man!
I totally agree, The Hound helmets in the show looks ridiculous... i hardly think he can move or see any good in that one.

I always wonder why they just didn't go with a Hound Bascinet and ornamented it or something to get the growling face.

It's funny, one thing GRRM dislikes about the show is that the characters rarely fight with their helmets on. Drama > Realism, which makes sense since we need to see a characters face to empathize, but I think Sandor has worn his helmet a grand total of twice during the three seasons of the show.

haha yeah but good that if you ask me, really ugly one..

yupp if u watch the commentary bu GRRM himself at the Blackwater episode, he's really nagging about the helmets, and i totally agree whit him! if i'm not mistaken Tyrion is the only one wearing his helmet in that battle( of the main actors ofc).
