MELO R3: Ithilien

Postby TheLordOfBricks » Tue Jun 27, 2017 5:32 pm

Hello! This is my entry for Round 3 of the Middle Earth Lego Olympics! My category was Ithilien, so I decided to build the fight between the oliphaunts and the rangers of Ithilien!

Linky to MELO: http://www.moc-pages.com/group.php/25974

So, onto the build:

Again, no WIP pictures this time, as I just wanted to chug through this one without any advice... :D

This build is roughly 70 x 60 at max with an irregular baseplate, the oliphaunts took around 5 days to build and the landscape took the other 3... (The first 2 days I was still scrambling for what to build...) So yeah, I really went out of my comfort zone for this one, I am not a pro at BBFs, but I really do like these, the heads are actually at a couple different angles off of each other, and the "nets" in the movie are out of lego capes... I hope the judges see that I went out of my comfort zone for this one... :D Anyways, I hope you enjoyed! This was a fun one!

Good luck Classical! May the best Ithilien Ranger win! :D

C&C Appreciated!

To God be the glory!

Nice build! The rockwork is pretty neat, as is the landscape that grows over top of it. I wish there was a full shot of the build, complete with those neat brick-built oliphaunts (some more shots of those would have been nice as well). Without a full, complete shot of the build, it is hard to picture the build in all its glory ;)

Thanks Andrew! I actually like all of this build except the oliphaunts (minus the heads which I actually like...), the oliphaunts are unfortunately 1 sided (though), so you would see the inside... :/ Thanks again! :D
