The armies were then trained separately to make them look ‘more competitive’ on-screen. The episode also featured 70 horses, 160 tons of gravel, 25 stuntmen, and four camera crews.

The show that normally takes just eight- twelve days to shoot an hour-long episode, but the battle for Winterfell was shot for over 25 days. The figures however do not include the battle at Meereen and the VFX for Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons.
