New leaks from the set of “Game of Thrones” season 8 have surfaced online. The crew has reportedly built the largest set for the show yet. The following article contains spoilers.

The cast and crew recently filmed a big battle sequence at Moneyglass. Winterfell will have to face challenging days in the current war.

According to a report by Watchers on the Wall, they are currently filming the aftermath of a major battle near Winterfell. The set was reportedly filled with props of dead soldiers and horses.

The scene is reminiscent of the battles fought by Stannis (Stephen Dillane) and the Boltons. The report, however, doesn’t reveal who will be attacking the Stark stronghold next season. The two armies poised to attack are the Lannisters and the Army of the Dead.

There are reportedly two big battles on the way. They have reportedly been shooting the Winterfell sequence since January, and it is expected to continue until March, which is a good indication for the scale of the action scene. Filming of the second action sequence is said to pick up after the current one ends.

The other big news is that the production crew has built its largest set ever at the Magheramorne Quarry. The location was previously used to film scenes related to Castle Black, Blackwater and Hardhome. The report notes that the size of the set is a record for the show.

It is not clear how this massive set will be used for “Game of Thrones” season 8, but the report suggests that it is being used to film scenes that can’t be filmed at real locations.
