Here's my first upload to MOCpages - the infamous Balrog from the Lord of the Rings! This fearsome, minifig-scaled model uses 264 bricks in its construction, with most of them being exisiting LEGO elements (for example, the trans-orange click hinges in the whip don't yet exist, but were needed for articulation). It is based on the video game version (credit to TT for another awesome design), but with some obvious changes (such as the fingers, whip, body and wings). However, I never use direct references from the in-game models, and attempt to remember any cool details whilst drafting others from my own concepts (as below). The Balrog is fully-poseable and ready to battle the Fellowship. "This model is beyond any of you - RUN!"
