Weathertop
Weathertop: The ancient fortress where Frodo meets the dark steel of the Nazgul.
About this creation
This is my entry for Christopher Baldacci's The Great Lord of the Rings Contest. It is a full 32x32 Weathertop, based off of a blend of the film version and my own imagination of the scene from The Fellowhip of the Ring.

Enjoy!



The cavern built into the side with Sam and his backpack. You can also see the doorway that leads onto the main fortress.


An arial view of the uppermost platform. Here the Nazgul have surrounded Frodo and in the corner you can see Aragorn charging to the rescue.


A side view.


Another photo of the top.


A view of the intricate rock work involved in the back.


A close up of Aragorn and his custom torch.


A close up of Frodo falling back against the statue as the Ringwraiths close in.


The leader of the Nazgul with his Morgul blade, preparing to strike.


Another closeup of Sam.


A close up of the action scene, with all the figs.


An artistically staged photo with only Frodo's chest and the Ringwraith's blade visible through the archway.


The Nazgul. From left to right: Inferno, The hooded menace, and finally, Pacifist.


Aragorn and Frodo. Go BRICKARMS!


And my first, artistic shot. The photoshop effects were done by a friend. Thank you!

Quoting Michael Kringe Accuracy: Actually all of the Hobbits are on the Weathertop, if your MOC goes with the movie 24/30 Minifigs: I don't like Sam, but the rest of the figs are great. Cool photoshop effects! 16/20 Originality: 6/10 Creativity: 25/35 Picture Quality: 3/5 Total 74/100
If it is the hair that is throwing you for Sam, don't worry, it was temporary for this scene.

Quoting Christopher Baldacci Awesome Nathan! Here's your score - (ACCURACY TO BOOK OR MOVIE) - Looks just like the movie on top, but I think you could've shrunk the cave just a wee bit: 27/30;(MINIFIGS) - Aragorn is awesome, and I love the torch, and you can't really go wrong with Nazgul. Sam's hair is an OK style but wrong color and Frodo's torso...you know...: 17/20;(ORIGINALITY) - Amazing idea, but you couldn't used more cheese slopes to make it appear like you had used less BURPs and LURPs: 8/10;(CREATIVITY/TECHNIQUE) - As I said above, you could've masked the BURPs and LURPs a bit better, but everything else is super!: 31/35;(PICTURE QUALITY) - Just beautiful...Tell your friend he did a good Photoshop job: 5/5; TOTAL: [88/100] Awesome, man!
I will ;P

Quoting Max Pointner Sorry I am so late in commenting. I love the cave that the hobbits hide in in the movie. Incredible work on the ruins. The rock work looks a bit choppy, but the minifigs (and the brickarms) pretty much makes up for it. Great work! When are you going to post the witch king?
As soon as I can get one more piece for his head.

Quoting Aidan Moon Accuracy: In the book Aragorn and the hobbits are not on top of the hill, but in a dell on the side, like where Sam is. But, it does not make do much of a difference in your score. 20/30 Minifigures:Frodo looks good, not the best torso, Sam is good, Aragorn is good although I am personally not a fan of that face. 18/20 Originality: 7/10 Creativity/Technique: Very good build, I like some of your techniques. The backpack particularly is fantastic, I'd like to see more of it in the pictures. 30/35 Picture quality:5/5 Total: 80/100
I agree, Frodo's torso could be better. I am going to have different one when I post my Fellowship. I like my Aragorn face, but I agree I could've used a different one for this scene.

Quoting Josh.O Shadeslayer accuracy 30/30 figs 18/20 (haryr potter hair would look better for frodo) orig 5/10 creativity/tech 30/35 pics 5/5 total 87/100
The hair on Frodo is Harry potter's

OK so Accuracy: Because you made this from the book it is hard to say how accurate it is so I will give you a standard: 20/30 Minifigs: Frodo's torso could be better but your Sam is perfect. The head on Aragorn needs to change as well: 10/20 Originality: You made this from the book so it is already original but this scene has been made by a whole lot of people: 5/10 Creativity: I love Sam's backpack and the way you built this was very impressive: 30/35 Pictures: 5/5 Total: 70/100
