I recognise a few of those. The photo shoot with the knight and the lady in the red dress must have been fun :)

That red Tudor dress again. Lint to GR, too hard to post image from Fire. Will do it then unless someone wants to jump in. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/222 ... earch=true

That looks like about the right time period.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

I do wonder if the generic half head has been photoshopped in and they've just hung on the dress on a shop dummy!
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

In this cover she does look like a shop dummy, but I think it's actually a real model, the same lady as here:

But the arms don't look right in the Captive Queen pose, I wonder if they're photoshopped?

I don't think the arms look right either, it almost looks as if they've been put on back to front!
