whenever I see these things on the show i think okay robb is in a tent somewhere in the middle of the riverlands why do you have these? did you just have them at winterfell pre-made for the off chance that a huge war started and you’d need them to strategize? if not: you’re in the middle of the war, who has time to make these fancy little perfectly carved house pieces just for your big map?
Maybe every holdfast has, like, a “war kit” that gets brought out when necessary
now i’m just imagining robb, after he’s crowned as king in the north, like “wait, how do i do war” and then one of his banner men bringing out this dusty old box like “idk but i’m exited to whip out this war kit. look at these pieces, that’s craftsmanship right there”
this war kit obviously didn’t come with any strategy tips tho lbr
in House Lannister’s kit the lion is made of gold while all the other houses are, like, driftwood carved with really unflattering features
