CCCXII - Prince Alfred

My first entry to the Custom Castle Figure category of the Colossal Castle Contest XII.

CCCXII - Prince Alfred by ~Erathor Pridenar~, on Flickr

Story:
Only when the fight is over is the real damage visible to all – hundreds of warriors, young and old, Viking and Saxon, lie slain on the trodden mud, eyes open but staring at nothing. In the midst of it all stands Alfred, head bowed, bloodied sword still unsheathed, but now a hero. Bagsecg is dead at his feet, and for now the Danish wave has been held back.

The photo quality isn't the best, but this is my first attempt at customising LEGO with paint, and I think it turned out quite well, though I promise this will only be used for custom fig contests. ;)
That story is an extract from a piece I wrote for my English coursework, that right now I have an A for! It's about the Battle of Ashdown and Prince Alfred's highly influential role in that fight. This figure was inspired by that work, and also by the fact that I have been studying the life of the great man himself in my history lectures.
