Battles of Westeros | Published 18 April 2011

...within the great round room called the Chamber of the Painted Table, they found Stannis Baratheon standing behind the artifact that gave the hall its name, a massive slab of wood carved and painted in the shape of Westeros as it had been in the time of Aegon the Conqueror. An iron brazier stood beside the king, its coals glowing a ruddy orange. Four tall pointed windows looked out to north, south, east, and west. Beyond was the night and the starry sky.
      - George R.R. Martin, a Storm of Swords

Just saw this and I was thinking of picking up the base set to give it a go.  This may push me to do it....about a week to paint 5 models isn't bad.

Damn... I'm afraid that my copy will not arrive on time to give me a chance to paint, take photos and sent them away... But best of luck to all participants :)

Cool contest. But those of us who would submit to paint...wouldn't we already have all the sets? I can't see a reason to have duplicate sets, unless to give it to friends?

Albeit, I haven't played the game much...can you use duplicate sets to do more epic battles? Maybe? I don't know.
