Guard of Winterfell
, on FlickrA guard of the city of Winterfell, the capital of the Northern portion of Westeros. One of the Seven Kingdoms united by Aegon I under the Iron Throne, the North is primarily ruled from Winterfell by House Stark, who's sigil is a gray direwolf on a field of white.
For those unaware, Westeros is the continent primarily featured in George R.R. Martin's series of novels entitled A Song Of Ice And Fire
(the basis for the HBO series Game of Thrones
). The shield was made by modifying one of the many designs featured on the CC tutorials, printing it out on copy paper, taping over it with packaging tape, cutting it out and gluing it to the shield. Inspiration for the creation of the shield (and method) is attributed to mpoh98 and his Oakleaf Knights
C&C welcome. I had a lot of fun with this creation, and I plan to make some more guards from the tens of houses featured in the novels. On the radar currently: House Blackfyre & House Mormont!
