The Siege of Pyddle Down manor



A recent game between Phil and me to celebrate the publication of my new ECW rules, A Crowning Mercy, available from Caliver Books, a siege game from our ongoing campaign in Staffordshire, the Great Siege of Pyddle Down Manor.

A General View of the Hasty Defences of the Manor



 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The enemy gather for the assault

A mortar shell sets the Manor roof ablaze
A Council of War considers the defence of the Manor





A mine explodes under the corner of the outer defences
 
The defenders are forced back and the outer defences breached



Royalist Foote storm into the outer defences

The Manor ablaze Obadiah Bykleigh must seek the mercy of his enemy





 Sorry about the layout and caption mess, Blogger seems to back to its stupid tricks!
