MELO R4: Martin Geistefeldt vs. Dodge: The Siege Of Gondor
About this creation
Bracket: Barad-dur
Opponent: Awesome Dodge and his creation
Category: The Siege Of Gondor

'The Siege Of Gondor'...a pretty challenging topic, isn't it? But an interesting and exciting one, too! Creating the 4th MOC for the Middle Earth Olympics was the greatest experience I've had with LEGO bricks so far, and I think the result of the work I put in this is quite impressive. You will see that I quartered the base plate: 4 parts, 4 scenes, 4 locations and 4 conflicts.
In this sense I want to say thank you to everyone who made this competition possible, judges as well as participants. This competition just gave so much to me. I learned many things about me and my skills, and I was challenged as I never was before.
So please enjoy this little diorama thematizing a small part of my most favourite mythology in the world!

1st part: The Recapture Of Osgiliath









2nd part: Ambush In Ithilien









(light-up brick bonfire)


3rd part: Attack From The River












4th part: The Battle Of The Pelennor Fields












Bird's eye view




Minifigures
All of them are actually 'customs', you won't find any of them in a set. For the Gondorian Soldiers, their shields and the Ithilien Rangers I used the decal designs from the websites of 999wodahsmuz, mattcorp and emperorkrulos for submission (special thanks for making these!).













Ok guys, that's it! Hope you like it, and good luck to my worthy opponent Dodge!

very well managed, as this scene is filled with stuff, and still manages to stay clean and clear!

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 you were able to smash so much detail into that single 32x32 base-plate...While Dodge had a masterful forced perspective and gems like magnificent micro scale oliphants, a curved wall, and a NPU trebuchet, I felt most of his techniques were 'brick-on-brick' so to speak. You wowed me with out of the box parts usage, rarely tried maneuvers like Light-Up-Bricks (TWO, I might add), a smooth color scheme and SNOT, wicked angles and unorthodox building styles at every turn. Even your minifigures were supremely detailed. At the end of the day, You showed your skill as a builder by moving out of the MOCcer's comfort zone (a standard dio) and displayed Gondor creatively and with fantastic details. (My list could go on to the inside of the boat, the fire, the trampled orc, and the microfigures as pillars.) These overwhelmed Dodge's 5 star dio and by the hair of your chinny chin chin, ;), you get my vote. Congratulations!

I have tried to get the third judge to decide, but he has not said anything yet. He technically has until the end of tomorrow though, so if there is nothing by then, let Ian know.

Well done to you both, Martin, your idea of combining several scenes into one build is a fantastic one, I love your figures, and everything is very detailed. In the end, my vote goes to you! Good luck with Chris!

Truly well done Martin! You've created a brilliant build and that four scenes are a great idea! Were I not against you, I would vote for you. However, if I fall to you then I will cheer for you! Good luck!

This is awesome! You've packed so much detail into such little space, it's a feast for my eyes! Very well done :)

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

Holy wow. That is an incredible useage space! You've really captured all the great scenes of Gondorian epicness from the trilogy. I love the action-packed feel in each scene. Excellent coloring, texture, and PU throughout. All in all, a fantastic entry! Good luck!
