About this creation
Barad Dur Bracket

My Rd4 talented competition: Martin Geistefeldt

The contest: MELO

The Rd4 Category: Siege of Gondor

Since the category for this round seemed a bit open (in terms that is could have been Osgiliath, Pelennor Fields, Minas Tirith, etc.) I chose to challenge myself and try out the circular form of the Minas Tirith wall. I'd always wanted to test the curve of the 1x2 brick, so it became a good opportunity to do so. Though the two levels are the primary model for this contest, the micro-scale battle was created to give the levels height and perspective.

Denethor: AAAAAHHHHH.....SPLORCH! great build, one of the best Seige of Gondor mocs, EVER. My litle brother likes that the man is hiding behind the boxes. Keep up good work, dodge,person,man.

Amazing MOC. The rounded walls are epic. Really like the size of the scene and the small quick images within (cowering people and troll at the gate). Great execution of a well thought out idea.

Thanks for putting on the contest. It was a lot of fun and a good testing of skills and abilities. I look forward to the challenge next year!

I'm sorry this took so long. I bet the wait has been agonizing. So now for the moment of truth. I must say this has been brutal trying to distinguish. Each round I find myself making harder and harder tie-breaking decisions. This one outdoes them all, and it will be sad to say good bye to either one of you. Martin, in the end, was able to smash so much detail into that single 32x32 base-plate...While you had a masterful forced perspective and gems like magnificent micro scale oliphants, a curved wall, and a NPU trebuchet, I felt most of your techniques were 'brick-on-brick' so to speak. Your smooth transition from the rock with the suicidal Denethor to the forced perspective ALMOST turned the tide...but it just couldn't conquer Martin's out-of-the-box parts usage, rarely tried maneuvers like Light-Up-Bricks , SNOT, wicked angles and unique minifigures. At the end of the day, these overwhelmed your 5 star dio by the absolute SLIMMEST of margins and he got my vote. Its been great having you in the 2013 MELO and I hope to see you challenge for the title in future years.

This was very well done, I enjoyed looking at most of this entry and it was close, but your opponent had much more detail and depth to his MOC, so my vote has gone to him.

I'll begin by saying that this took some thought. You both produced fantastic entries. Martin's build was packed full of delicious details, clever techniques, and interesting angles (overall, a slightly "cleaner" build). At the same time your entry also displays some lovely details/interesting angles, and you've presented some stunning forced perspective. When all is said and done, you've got my vote! If you hadn't included the forced perspective, it would have gone to Martin. This was a close call, good luck with your other judges!

WOW! That is an amazing build! Whole idea is great, and the forced perspective, just awesome! At first I wanted to make something similar, but I had some other ideas...looks like some really tough competition. Best of luck to you!

Very nice, but I think you should have made the forced perspective a more integral part of the moc, or at least made one of the fp shots the main pic, because that fp is plain awesome.

I am loving the miniscale Oliphaunts. Great work on all the small details that really make this build!
