The first set pics from the Croatian set of Game of Thrones season three have just found their way online as filming began yesterday. And we've got some of your very own favorites, including a stunning Cersei (Lena Headey) in a WOW dress, Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) and a good look at Tyrion Lannister's (Peter Dinklage) fresh battle scar.

The filming took place at the fort of St. Lawrence in Dubrovnik which is where the Croatian press once again had a field day snapping pics of main stars Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Aidan Gillen (Petyr Baelish), Jerome Flynn (Bronn) and Daniel Portman (Podrick Payne).

The fort was used in season two for several scenes, including Joffrey's (Jack Gleeson) big name day celebration bash, the place where the nobles took refuge from the bread riots and of course, who can forget the scene between Cersei and Littlefinger's fascinating exchange about power.

As we've said above, we also have a nice look at Tyrion's facial scar incurred during the George R. R. Martin penned ''Blackwater'' episode from last season. It's certainly less gruesome than the book's (part of his nose was chopped off) and has healed rather nicely, don't you think? Considering, you know, that his face was almost chopped off by a sword.

But we have to point out here actress Lena Headey's absolutely STUNNING dress. Just WOW. Guess Cersei will be wearing those Lannister colors with pride.

Also: Video!

What do you think of Tyrion's scar? Should they have gone for more gruesome? Also, how about that awesome Cersei dress?

HBO's Game of Thrones season 3 will start airing March 31, 2013.
