The Night’s King — the supernatural entity who commands the White Walkers — has for the most part been a behind-the-scenes threat so far in Game of Thrones. Starting in season 6, however, it looks like this villain is going to come more to the forefront as a major antagonist in the show. HBO on Tuesday posted a new video that gives us an early closeup look at the Night’s King by highlighting the work done by Game of Thrones’ prosthetics department.

This looks like the mold for one of his undead minions who would fit right in an episode of The Walking Dead:

Here’s an early look at what looks like a different creature than any we’ve seen before:
