Seeing just how much work goes into making the show look as good as it does almost makes the ten month wait between seasons feel worthwhile.

VFX, animation and design studio Iloura's work on 'Game of Thrones' is mindboggling in its scope and scale, and seeing just how many elements are required to make something like this season's 'Battle of the Bastards' makes the end result even more impressive.

This breakdown of how the battle was stitched together may ruin the magic a little bit, but it also makes you want to buy the men and women who worked on it a pint for all their hard work.
