Angband
Angband was the fortress of Melkor (Morgoth) in the First Age. It was located in the Iron Mountains (Ered Engrin), in northern Beleriand. Angband means "Hells of Iron" in Sindarin. This is my take on Melkor's Stronghold and the volcanic peaks of Thangorodrim. It is built at a much smaller scale than my other mini MOCs. Enough facts! Let's get on to the build!
About this creation

The main gate of Angband and the base of the tallest of the Thangorodrim.


Inside Melkor's Stronghold. Many towers and dark, intimidating buildings fill the area.


Another inside view. This time from the right. Keep in mind that this is a VERY small representation of Angband. Minifig scale would be HUGE! (I should try that one day...)


Looking down from the Iron Mountains (Ered Engrin).


The misty sands of Anfauglith lying before the mighty peaks of Thangorodrim.


Looking down on the whole Hells of Iron.


Looking (almost) up at the rearing peaks of Thangorodrim and the black towers of Angband.


A final comparison with Angband and my other Barad-dr. They are about the same height (I think Angband is a bit taller.) but in real life the Thangorodrim would be about 35,000ft high. So Angband is (again) built at a smaller scale than my other mini MOCs.

Anyways, thanks for viewing and leave a comment to tell me what you think.
Have a good day! :)

Quoting Stephen Boe Wow, very cool! I especially like the snotted walls. It's seems a bit messy though...
Yeah, I couldn't find any good pictures to determine the interior towers and whatnot, so I almost made a bit up as I went. Thanks, I value your opinion! :)
