It Is Time (or, a Knight and Lady Escape a Castle Siege)
The iron-fisted King has laid siege to the castle of Percival the noble. After many long months, the stronghold is finally falling. Percival entrusts his best young knight with one final task: to escort his young daughter to safety. To this the knight now employs himself.... Pretty much directly inspired by the medieval novels of G.A. Henty. See my Brickshelf folder here: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=441214
About this creation
Forced into rebellion by the King's overlording rule, Percival, a wise man from a respected noble lineage, has had his castle under siege for nearly a year. At dawn, on what would be his and his men's last day, the final attack begun. Dusk began to set in...when a breach was made.












A breach!












The death match begins....















Everyone fights.


















More weak points are exploited by the assaulting forces, resulting in multiple entry points (more breaches, scaled walls, etc.). The walls are becoming overrun.






























A dead archer is a useless archer....


















The king's long-time friend and aide rushes for the fray. He hasn't wielded a sword in battle for many years, but his ways are set, so he sets about to die like a warrior.



The young knight, clad in blackened armor for camouflage, runs with Percival's daughter.



Sir Percival sets aside his sword and helmet to say farewell to the most precious thing in the world to him. His wife long dead, and with no other living children, Percival has lost all. With one more pained look, he closes the secret entrance to the castle, picks up his tools of war, and prepares to die.



The knight, at first very reluctant to flee from battle, agreed to the wishes of his lord. It sickened him to his very core, to have to run, but he knew he was doing his master a greater service than staying would provide. So, he took this task as if it was his last and final fight to the death.












And here are he details of the secret passageway for those interested. (This, as well as the young knight and daughter rescue idea, both are inspirationally drawn from G.A. Henty's works.)

Great vignette/diorama, but choose 'Large pictures' next time so we won't have to click them every time.
