Very nice!

But who's the Hightower infiltrating the Vale nobility?  ;)

The Knights of the Vale look pretty damn good!

Apologies for my ignorance, but is it a heraldic convention to have the Liege Lords sigil on the hind section of the mount, or your own idea?

Either way it looks very effective, and ties them together as a force.

A bit of both, really. It was partly to give it a unified look and something a little separate from the rest of the regions. There is historic precedent for this. In Spanish heraldry the confrere knights of the Military Orders had their personal heraldry combined with that of the order. In early heraldry a conroy often bore the same charges as the lord, even lesser knights owing service as well as men at arms. Others used the same colour combinations to show allegience to a particular faction. In instances where the sigil colours aren't specified I have used white and grey to signify allegience to the Starks, Blue and white for the Vale, Red and Yellow for the Lannisters and Yellow and Green for the Reach.
Warriors dreams, summer grasses, all that remains

Thanks for the explanation - it makes sense, AND looks really effective

Hmmm, appears I have Hightower and Grafton muddled up... I've taken a simpler approach to the sigil than the semi-canon source
Thanks for spotting the error Charlie! :)

Those elephants are lovely :)

I dont mean to add to your labour, but have you considered the faith militant?
The Warrior's Sons and the Poor Fellows could be a neutral force, willing to fight for any pious lord.

Thanks for reminding me. I have a party of armed peasants and I have a Warrior's Son figure to paint up to lead them. I plan to kitbash a unit of Poor Fellows and a Septon too in good time...
I'm currently concentrating on the better quality arrow fodder and very pleased I'm following the book cycle and not having to add a model of my own Drogon to the long to-do list... ;)

Nice work! I like the interpretation of having 'gold' cloth without it being like...literally metallic gold! Looks great!

And fresh off the drawing board - an afternoon's work and the outline heraldry for the Dornish infantry contingent begins to emerge. 8 of these are canon based on Tyrion's reception of the Dornish at King's Landing. I will tweak these further as I progress the figures. I had a variety of unused Gripping Beast Spanish mozarabs and chose to use those. The infantry are cast with kite shields but I figured that was better suited to foot fighters. The cavalry contingent will have the traditional round shields the Dornish are known to favour...
From L to R; Manwoody, Uller, Gargalen, Martell, Allyrion and Qorgyle
and 2nd row; Blackmont, Santagar, Wyl, Vaith, Jordayne and Toland

The first mass assembly of the Reach host now all the models are built and beginning to show the look I'm after. Still days of work ahead progressing each house to completion. 12 Houses represented
L Hand side column from top to bottom; Fossoway of Cider Hall, Leygood, Ashford, Fossoway of New barrel, Tyrell and Oakheart
R Hand column from top to bottom; Crane, Caswell, Rowan, Merryweather, Footly and Tarly.
Off the table are 12 mounted men at arms still to be armed and equipped which will bear sigils of lesser houses.
