The Plundering of Airlie by Nimbus2005 The Plundering of Airlie by Nimbus2005
The Plundering of Airlie — The Wrath of Argyll
This piece illustrates the English Folk song "The Bonnie House of Airlie". The song follows Lady Margaret, whose castle is plundered by the Scottish Lord Argyll and his army. Argyll takes Lady Margaret to the top of the town and forces her to watch the plundering of Airlie. For the full story, I recommend Kate Rusby's rendition of the song.

Very nice! I really like the way you did the ground that Argyll and Lady Margaret are standing on. I also really like the way you did the background, with all it's details.
