MELO Round 1: You Shall Not Pass!
This is my contest entry for the Middle Earth Lego Olympics. I wanted to do something unique, so I decided to do Micro-building!
About this creation
Here is the link to the MELO group, Middle Earth Lego Olympics


Here is an overhead view of the whole scene. We have the Balrog with his whip, Gandalf, and the rest of the fellowship behind Gandalf.



A close-up view of the Balrog on the scene. This guy was fun to make! I had to attach all of the fire elements to him, and then make the fiery whip. It took a while to figure out how and where to add the elements.



For the cliff walls, I used snot building to make it look more realistic for the scale size. The studs sticking out make it look more rough. I have some smooth elements leading up to the bridge. I also made the wall bow out more towards the bridge to make it look the rocks are part of the bridge. Not just a bridge flat on top of the rocks.




Here is where the bridge breaks. Here you can also see how I made the bridge come out from the rocks, not just perpendicular to the rocks. You can also see how the bridge is curved.



Here is part of the bridge and the side opposite the Balrog without the mini minifigures.

Below are some other close-ups of the Balrog.












Thanks judges in advance for allowing me to be part of this contest! Please rate and comment, Good luck to all the other contestants! God Bless!

Quoting Builder Allan Very well done! Lots of brilliant little ideas and details. I agree, that balrog is quite originally done :-)

Quoting Beardless Dwarf Wow! I'm not a fan of microscale building but this is awesome! I like the Balrog especialy.
That is my favorite part too! I thought it would be cool to do this scene micro-scale.

Quoting Everett Many Great job, I really like it: but I do agree work on the fellowship a little more :)

Quoting Rory Simpson I really like the Balrog, but I feel that you could have put some more time and effort into the other figures, such as Gandalf and his eight companions, but over all, its a good build! ~RORY~
If I did any more with the figures, they'd be too big compared to the Balrog. Thanks!

I really like the Balrog, but I feel that you could have put some more time and effort into the other figures, such as Gandalf and his eight companions, and maybe finish of the landscape a little more (tileing the floor, maybe adding some pillars) but over all, its a good build! ~RORY~

Quoting A M Excellent job! The micro-Balrog is quite clever, and I love that you used the clip piece for Gandalf, since his arms are raised in that scene. Good luck!
