CCCX Clattenburg Castle

Postby peggyjdb » Sun Dec 30, 2012 11:29 am

"Clattenburg Castle has been under siege for the entire winter. The siege has been laid by Baron Abramoviscky of the Kingdom of Chelscky, an ally of the King of France.

Mid spring sees the Kings of England’s reinforcements arrive on the main land, the army being led by The Earl of Léonas. Once the The Earl of Léonas has rendezvoused with the King of England a small force is sent to relieve Clattenburg Castle.

News of the reinforcements arrival spreads across Normandy and the siege is lifted by Baron Abramoviscky who returns to join the King of Frances main army in central France.

The archers and knights at Clattenburg Castle rejoice to see the Earl of Léonas, accompanied by Baron Falcon and four of the Kings knights. The small force brings much needed supplies to the sick and longsuffering troops, who now have jaundice, turning their skin to a sickly yellow. Amongst the supplies are some of the arrows made back in Tigelfáh and a new catapult."

For those outside of the UK you may not fully appreciate the names, which relate to a recent sporting fiasco in the Premier League (football, aka soccer!)

This brings my submissions to end, but not the end of the story of Tigelfáh, more to come in 2013. STEAM (A UK LUG attended exhibition) will see the completion of the build.

Hope you've enjoyed looking at them as much as I have building them.

Higher and cleaner pictures of Clattenburg Castle to come in the new year (I need to get back to my office where I can use photoshop!)

This is awesome, especially the combination of both square and round sections.

I think it's really cool that the castle along with the landscape is shifting to a bit of an angle. Looks amazing, love the colors and especially the green mound on the side. :)
