When you think about it, the graphics for CK2 are minimal. It comes down to:
Costumes (troop markers on the field count here)
So, for Galle: What parts of that are important to all of these "come from the show" people? Honestly, I don't think they will care at all (hardly notice) if the armor is more correct to the books lively description, or the dresses for the ladies done This Way or That Way. Likewise, I (and some of the book crowd) don't really care if the portraits are based on the HBO casting, as much of it is really well done. However, I personally feel it would be more immersive to have the little details right, like Maester chains being tight about the neck instead of loose and jangling (otherwise Luwin is perfect casting).
That leaves Castles and Banners. I still think the HBO Eyrie is ridiculous, but Winterfell is fine, Harrenhall pretty much what I imagined. King's Landing should look slightly different, culturally, from the surrounding areas (conqueror's seat). I lyke Pyke. As for banners, the show has done a fairly good job. I wouldn't object to using the banners we have seen from the show.
But that's IT. What else is there?

It won't be a public vote, so the overall art design of the mod would be taken into consideration. The back and forth comes down to the whole lot of "because I said so" while not accomplishing anything.

Just to ensure this debate won't get dragged up again, there will be a graphical sub-mod for anything/everything HBO.
