Show just keeps getting more and more awesome characters, hard to keep up with all of them when most get little screentime and have unconventional names to remember. That guy with a bow was badass.

The Wildings with their giants

The slave army got reallhy hyped in the 1st episode as some unstoppable force of emotionless warriors, but the Wildings seems to be durable hardcore vikings, and those giant/giants just add more power.
1A- Khal Drogo and his Dothraki
1B- Daenerys' The Unsullied (that is if you got enough of them)
2- House Tyrell's entire army and sworn banner men
3- The Westerlands and the North are pretty close while Casterly Rock has the numbers and the better cavalry and Winterfell the better foot soldiers and commanders.
The Wilding army comes a far last because they are not an army, comparing them to armies is like comparing elite street baller teams to NBA teams. Although they are ferocious fighters they lack discipline and good gear.

And the Dothraki don't lack gear lol? The Wildings have giants man! That right there is a huge advantage in an open field.

Are Dothraki really that amazing? Thought the Unsullied held off 50k of them with only 3k in the past.

How much do the Dragon's add to the army? Are they powerful enough to cover 1000 soldiers?

Fully grown dragons? Well the book already has that answer, you don't need an army if you have dragons.
The Unsullied are the best army warriors but there is so much you can do with foot soldiers. Still the Unsullied could beat any army as long as they are not greatly outnumbered.
PS: All my rankings are based on fighting on open battlefield.

The Dothraki are pretty much the Mongols. Virtually unbeatable by medieval style armies. If we draw parallels to real history the Dothraki would thoroughly massacre any of the other armies.

Of course though, this universe adds all kinds of supernatural elements to the mix.

My biggest regret is that Daenarys let the hobag witch curse Khal Drogo and kill him. He was the biggest badass on the show. That cut would have healed up fine on its own. I wanted to see him land in Kings Landing and kick the shit out of everybody.

King David targharean and I name syrio forrl as my kings guard commander. Coz everyone else on that list is a lil bitch or ovverated. You do not become first sword of bravos by being a decent or excellent swordsman. In that case,, jaqen hara was a decent or excellent assassin, but not the best. Not like these men from bravos are special or anything. Nah they just mediocre.
