Siege of Harfleur
Siege creation showing breached wall and attacking forces
About this creation













France, in the year 1415, and the army of Henry V has surrounded the town of Harfleur. The garrison, commanded by the Sieur d'Estouteville and the Sieur de Gaucourt, refuse to surrender and so the English begin to bombard the walls with cannon and other artillery. A swift conclusion to the siege is necessary, as the town has plenty of provisions and the main French Army is expected at any time.

Eventually, the already damaged walls are undermined by sappers and a breach appears. English footmen and men at arms pour into the town under Henry’s rallying cry:

"Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let pry through the portage of the head
Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
As fearfully as doth a galled rock
O'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill'd with the wild and wasteful ocean."

(Henry V Act III, Scene 1)

The chunks in the wall are great, and the large falling piece aint bad either. Great work, solid 5, even from a non castle guy.

You did a great job! I especially like the part-destroyed house, and the gashes in the wall. Everything seems like its happening all at once, yet frozen in time.

Nice work. I like the broken wall. The houses look nice too. Congrats on getting posted on The Brothers Brick.
