Even on vacation, Legos cannot avoid me, and I cannot avoid Legos.
About this creation
After not posting anything since Rip Van Winkle, this feels refreshing. This MOC is the result of summer vacation away from home, birthday presents including Shelob Attacks, The Mines of Moria, and a few small boxes of assorted dark gray slopes, and creativity that has been cooped up for a while.
Evil Prince Grathhem (above) and his armys have been hunting and silencing the outcries of the Wanderers: nomadic individuals protecting towns, villages, and oppressed lands from Grathhem's reckless reign. Redger, a leader of the Wanderers, has been traced to the small mountain fortress of Crajem, meaning "Refuge" in an ancient language, where it is besieged by Grathhem's enslaved forces.
As Grathhem's men scale the rocky cliff-side of the Crajem, Redger defends his fortress.
A strategic advantage of the Crajem is that it is filled with supplies. Behind it's walls, the fortress is stashed with dried food, weapons, and fresh water is available through a well.
The well's bucket moves up and down with only the turn of a crank!
Hear stands Redger, one of the Wanderer chiefs.
And here is Grathhem and one of his small forces.
NOTE: I am sorry if the pictures turned out bad. I used one clamp light and a mirror for all of the lighting that you see, and no photoshop was used. Thanks for viewing!
For just having a clamp light and a mirror, your pictures actually turned out great! I see that you were able to make good use of those Bley "profile" bricks. Wonderful vig and your minifigs are brilliant as always. Looking forward to more from you.
Hehe, even with limited pieces you still turn out some great builds! Well done Max. Many of those bricks looks vaguely familiar...the well tells me that Shelob is no more. Pity. I can't believe you didn't Photoshop any of these pics, they're perfection. You should do your pictures like this more often!
