Glorfindel's Fall

MELO R4: The Fall of Gondolin
Glorfindel's Fall: Caleb Walker vs. John Snyder

The city of Gondolin or the "Hidden Kingdom", was home to the Noldor Elves. Located in the Hidden Vale of Tumladen, it was the perfect place to build an Elven city, due to its natural surroundings. The encircling mountains gave much protection and also concealed the city's location. The Great Eagles also destroyed any spies or servants of the dark lord, Morgoth. The city of Gondolin was built out of white stone and thrived for five centuries, until it was finally betrayed and its secret passages revealed to Morgoth. Who sent a huge army of Balrogs, Orcs, wolves, and Dragons to destroy its inhabitants. The Elves fought valiantly for their home, but the might of the enemy was too great, and the mighty city of Gondolin was sacked.
During this great battle against evil, the valiant elf-lord Glorfindel fought a mighty Balrog. Their encounter led them to a high pinnacle of rock where the fight ended when they fell over the edge and into the abyss. The Great Eagle Thorondor bore Glorfindel's body up from the depths and buried him in honor.

This was probably my most rushed entry yet! I feel bad because I absolutely love the city of Gondolin, and would've loved to build more of the city. But with a week of being a camp counselor, and then a week of vacation. There was little time for building. To be honest, about 90% of this was built in one night. And my desk is a total mess and I really need to sort and put old builds away. The Balrog needs some work, I just didn't have enough time to make him better. The rocks actually turned out very nice. Enjoy this incredibly rushed MOC!

Excellent work here Caleb, nothing like a Balrog to brighten my evening ;) Great job here, having just watched the LotR and the Hobbit trilogy, I'm looking forward to the Silmarillion series that's coming out in the near future :D Lovin' the rockwork and the simple, yet subtle architecture and the coolio tree. God bless and keep on brickin'! ~Promar~

While John's build is more impressive, I found you did a better job capturing the category. I figured you would build this scene and I'm glad you did. Well done!

Both these entries were really really good. I'm glad I wasn't the deciding vote or anything, because it would have been too much pressure. As it is, I think I'm giving my vote to you for your rockwork (plus you picked an awesome scene).

I really like how this came out, but the sheer size of your opponent's build means that he got my vote.

Hi there, Your opponent got my vote. I do like the rockwork and your take on the category, but your opponent's build is just so fantastic. Greetz, Elio

Excellent rockwork, and the balrog is quite recognizable despite its small scale. Nice touch with the archway in the back corner too :) @The Grey Man: Yes indeed, Glorfindel also does help at the crossing of the Ford. He was sent back to middle earth after his fall in this encounter, similar to how Gandalf was.

That's a fine and top-notch compact MOC, even the balrog isn't to recognize very well, Caleb! I also like the chosen story from the Simarillion of Glorfindels struggle with the balrog!

Very nice work! For a rushed build you've done very well. The rocks are fantastic. =)

But wait! Wasn't Glorfindel the elflord who assisted the hobbits at the fords? Or is my Tolkien awry?

Stuff like this makes things like the siege of Minas Tirith look like child's play. Nice Balrog and good luck!
