My entry for the LOTR: The Fellowship of the Ring contest. My creation depicts Gandalf the Wizard fighting the evil Balrog on the Bridge of Khazad-dûm. Enjoy!
About this creation
"You shall not pass!"
The Balrog standing next a mini Gandalf. I moved the Balrog's wings into a more sinister position for this shot; the Balrog supports 9 points of articulation.
A shot showing how the Balrog's wings and tail just barely go beyond the base, which (to my knowledge) is allowed under the rules :)
The battle between Gandalf and the Balrog is one of the most iconic scenes in the book and the movie. I painstakingly researched the entire scene, using the movie, book, and expanded universe paintings as references. I also took some inspiration from the fantastic Mr. Nannan Z who, like Ferris Bueller, they say is " a righteous dood." :) As a side note, I will not be entering the other two contests, as my HS graduation is coming up and I really have no time on my hands. Still, I had a lot of fun with this contest; may the best MOC win!
Excellent micro-scale! The bridge: Well done! You found the perfect bricks for it!: (100/100). The Balrog: It's just awesome (although he may have less thin arms): (90/100). Gandalf: Clever ideas (the only thing missing is the hair (87/100) Your score: 92/100
This is really something else! I was planning on doing this scene, but on a big scale. Then I saw the overhang rule and (piff) that went out the door. So I am very glad someone did this in micro scale. This is one of the best micro scales submitted yet. You've got a good chance with this! The balrog is fantastic! 5/5!
