"Upon great pedestals founded in deep waters stood two great kings of stone. The left hand of each was raised palm outwards in a gesture of warning... the silent wardens of a long-vanished kingdom."
-the Fellowship of the Ring
The first in a (long) list of Lord of the Rings MOCs- the Argonath, giant statues of Isildur and Anarion, guarding the Great River on the borders of Gondor. The Fellowship pass under the gates of Argonath on their Quest.
The heads caused me some trouble. I'm quite chuffed with the 'crest' on Anarion's crown - actually a helmet kindly donated by Viceroy Gunray.
The Fellowship themselves - L-R Pippin, Legolas, Sam, Aragorn, Gimli, Gandalf, Frodo, Boromir and Merry.
Rate and comment guys!

Very accurate to how I imagine it! Love the boats and the way you used both gray and blay for the statues. I also love the fact that you use yellow skin for the fellowship. It is a dying tradition.
Thank you! I admit though, I only used both shades of grey because I didn't have enough of one colour. And I think I'll start a group - yellow skin for ever!
