Thanks for putting this thread together; I think I'm biting the bullet on my GOT project this year and tons of great inspiration here!

Not sure where this would sit, but I have been pondering a simple campaign mechanism for creating battles and scenarios for my Westerosi.
My basis is to develop a stylised route map with rivers and coastline included but I have hit a wall (not THE wall), but GRRM's refusal to quote distances. My other attempts at campaign maps have broken down the geography into days' marches between key points so you can recreate 'calling the banners' and mustering forces to get a simplified strategic understanding of moving forces around to recreate conflict between the factions and houses.
How do you guys do this? I've found the LR/DR scenarios are ok up to a point, but I kinda want to go a step further...
Warriors dreams, summer grasses, all that remains

Unfortunately, this wonderful compendium of creative interpretations of the world of A Song of Ice and Fire in miniature, has been adversely affected by the meltdown in Photobucket - a sweeping and indiscriminate act of grand commercial extortion and cultural vandalism worthy of the Iron Bank of Braavos  ;)

So some of the glorious threads referenced out from here, are now missing all their lovely eye candy inspiration  :'(

A plea therefore... If you still have your original pics that were formerly hosted on Photobucket, can you please repost them in the appropriate pages of your GoT thread either as direct downloads, or remotely hosted elsewhere.

You can use the LAF gallery facility to host images of your toys and models if you like - you don't need to be a supporting member to set up an LAF gallery these days.

I appreciate it's a tedious and time-consuming pain in the butt to have to go back, find, re-host and reload dozens of pictures. But without the eye candy, quite a lot of the value and inspiration in this whole endeavour is lost.

So please - if you can find a spare couple of hours. Why not dedicate them to rebuilding the imagery in your GoT threads, like restoring a beautiful picture  :)

Thanks.

As something of a technophobe  :?, I'd only just about grasped the image insertion-thingy before the PB/Iron Bank clampdown. Most of my images were less eye candy and more pretty dire w.i.p. shots.
I've been feeling the peer pressure too.
However, I will soldier on and try and finish off units/factions in the wake of a comprehensive reorganisation so I can post new images in due course. A recent advance in years celebration has left me with a fresh tide of plastic to convert into Westerosi, so I'm feeling the pressure to crack on again...

My wife just led her Stannis/Melisandra army to victory in our Knights and Knaves tournament (part of the Good the Bad and the Ugly world wide event).  Many players were playtesting new armies from the upcoming Olde World Edition but she was using an old Fire and Ice Edition army.

(Olde World covers Europe in roughly the Hundred Years War era and a Fantasy version based on the Olde World.  Fire and Ice covers the War of the Roses with a fantasy version).

Anyway - great to see GOT style armies sweeping all before them.  If I could figure out how to attach pictures on this forum I'd put in some shots from the event.

Are the mods aware that all these links are now broken as a result of the server move?

Don't bother doing mine again, there's nothing to see  ;)

I'll start a new one soon enough though.

Okay, I could go in and remake all the links manually, but it's an issue across the site where people have linked out to other LAF topics, so a more systematic fix will be looked for where the old .de links are given. Bear with us for a few days...  :)

I've updated the compendium index with a few of the more recently posted GOT / ASOIAF projects here on LAF.

If you have a miniatures project based on the works of GRR Martin which you are charting / sharing here on LAF, and you'd like it added to the compendium, please PM me to let me know. Otherwise I'll only get round to adding them once I spot them - which can sometimes take a few weeks or even months with the sheer volume of content that gets posted on LAF these days.
