Orthanc bracket of round three of the Middle Earth LEGO Olympics pits me against talented builder Toa Infernum in the category of "Wraiths on Wings" with the task of building a Nazgūl Fell Beast.
I've always wanted to build a dragon, so this contest was a great excuse. The wings were inspired by Deus. (Rhyme not intended...)
A shot of the whole thing. It really is tougher to photograph black MOCs. The wingspan is nearly two feet, and tail to head is about the same. I used a marionette type set-up to support the wings and body and to allow dynamic posing.
I built the head first, using a couple of foot covers from technic Star Wars figures as jaws.
Heroic Nazgūl shot, Fell Beast bursting through the clouds to liberate orcs everywhere.
Wow, this was a very close decision! You both did your job perfectly. If it was only the Fellbeast's body, I wouldn't know who to give my vote, but your amazing wings design made the important difference. You have my vote! Good luck with the other judges.
Well, the judges have their work cut out for them. Both of the entries are so magnificent, and both are worthy of fourth place. The wings are incredible!! Great work, and good luck Luke, I can see this going either way.
