A couple of close-ups. Unfortunately I didn't think to take pics of the town, or the forest. I was too preoccupied with the castle (and my brain was still on vacation!)
The top picture is of my Russian general with his bodyguard outside the castle wall. The bottom pic shows the town militia, again outside the main gate, with the general behind urging them on.
On the walls you can just see a couple of archers hiding behind the parapets, and of course, the local ruler and sergeant of the gate in the tower above the gate watching goings-on.
