"Let this be the hour when we draw swords together. Fell deeds awake. Now for wrath, now for ruin, and the red dawn!"
I like my opponent didn't want to build "Another Helms Deep" Moc, I chose to still keep with the origin of the quote, and go with a Helms Deep, but I choose to make it a cutaway in an attempt to be a bit different.
Edit: Well the next round is here and I need pieces from this to build my entry, instead of just taking pieces like a normal person... I SMASHED IT
Built this in 10 days, I feel stupid for making my entry so big. But I am pretty happy with the result. Best of luck Jonas! Thanks to the judges! And God bless!
Outstanding, Grant. Yes, there have been many Helm's Deep MOCs, but it can be done incorrectly. In this case, you nailed it. I like the action that you included in the build, and yes the cutaway feature is very appealing. Super work.
While my vote no longer holds any sway, I'll still share my thoughts. Both you and your opponent performed masterfully and super impressively. The builds are quite equal in my eyes and both worthy of victory. That said, I have to be nit-picky to decide. While your build is mind-blowing Grant, I think your opponent slightly outdid you in terms of organization and composition. He gets my vote.
