Burning the Jacales

Cycles render of burning jacales

On February 25, 1836, three Mexican companies and a battalion assaulted the south side of the Alamo compound through the Plaza de Valero.  Taking advantage of cover provided by the surrounding jacales, the battle raged for several hours.  When it was over, the Texians sallied from the fort and burned the huts nearest to the compound.  Accounts say this was done in the evening but the 2004 movie shows it in the afternoon.

This render is my first attempt at rendering fire and smoke using Blender Cycles.
