CBC UB - The Battle of Mynydd Hyddgen

In 1401, the valley below Mynydd Hyddgen in Wales became the site of a failed attack that spurred on fifteen years of rebellion against the English rule.

An entry for the Ultimate Battle category in the running Castle Battle Contest over at FlickR.

Thanks for looking!

Superb landscaping, I especially like the path and stream. Great little hut in the front too, love the roof :)

Great job! I didn't notice before that the base was sloped, very cool. Love all the details and the action! :wink:

Excellent! As usual, great landscaping, I always like your messy style. Next time, if you incorporate a hill like you did here, make sure to take pictures so that the hill can be obviously seen. In the main picture here, it is not so obvious that half of the landscape is slanted.
You would rather be building right now.

Thanks for the comments, guys!

Yeah, I've never used this sloping technique on large scale before, so I only realised the effect was somewhat lost after uploading the pictures. I'll be sure to catch a better angle if I venture into these hills again :)

Very nice, I like the stream, the path, and the figure placement. Well done!
