Minas Morgul: Heroic Rendition

Postby LittleJohn » Fri Jul 28, 2017 8:54 pm

My build for the 6th and final round of the 2017 Middle Earth LEGO Olympics. The category was Switched Teams; so someone who was a villein would now be a good guy, and a place like Rivendell would be evil, etc. I decided to do Minas Morgul, which is the fortress of the Witch King in the Lord of the Rings, so in my version the Witch King is now a noble leader with a valiant force of warriors guarding the splendid fortress. In order to make it look less scary/bad guy-ish, I opted for a white/grey colorscheme and changed the architecture to be slightly less pointy (though I did keep the buttresses and battlements rather spiky), while still keeping the same general layout. I’m quite pleased with the result, and although I didn’t plan on it getting quite this big, it’s now my heaviest build to date, weighing a smashing 31.2 pounds!

There are also a few things you can try to find in this build, if you would like (though not many of them are very well hidden, I admit!):
4 frogs
1 bear
2 hedgehogs
1 bird in a birds nest
3 chickens
2 goats
