Hey Everyone! Here is my latest creation, it took about two and a half weeks to build. As the title says this is based off of Menegroth (in Middle Earth). I'm really happy with how this creation turned out. I also liked being able to pull out some of my (and one of my brother's) sand blue collection.
And if anyone is wondering why I put Mirkwood elves in the build, I just wanted to put some minifigures on and I thought they looked cool. So I kept them there (even though they didn't live in Menegroth)
Also, I got some inspiration for the tree from John and Jaap
"Most impressive..." - Darth Vader, The Empire Strikes Back. Well. Done. Excellent work here, Carter, you've definitely outdone yourself with this build. Congrats on Explore Page and Across MOCpages, you absolutely earned it. Love the arched form of the entryway and the use of cheese slopes and that super cool blue color. Love the landscape colors and the band of rockwork that you've masterfully draped across the entry. Again, well done. God bless and keep right on brickin'! ~Promar~
Great job on the forms here. I particularly like the handling of the tree trunk, which given the scale you're working in, can often end up being a bit clunky. Not yours - has a very nice textural and organic quality to it. Nice work!
