Li Li's Great Entry

Category/Quote: “There was a white tree in a courtyard of stone. It was dead. The city was burning.”


Now when Pippin looked through the palantir he saw what Sauron wanted to happen not what would happen . This was the main thought behind my creation. My build shows the White Tree being assaulted by the hordes of darkness, with the faithful few Gondorian soldiers defending it until their last breath (maybe). Will Gondor succumb to Sauron's will, or will light RISE ABOVE? I incorporated a little FUNCTION which might tell....

A few notes: >Sorry about the "teaser" main pic. My real main photo's vertically oriented and Mocpages won't upload any vertical pics for me (I had to copy them from Flickr). :(
>I made my first Bricklink order for this! Now I have 8 of those black pirate sails!
> I know this isn't where the tree is in the movie, but since the tree is the symbol of Gondor, I felt that I could place it "lower" in the city amongst the houses and shops. I also wasn't sure if Sauron's forces ever got to the top of the city (where the tree is) before they were defeated.
>The buildings may seem a little simple, but they are almost exact replicas of buildings seen in the movie (look in the scene when Gandalf's first riding into Minas Tirith and he passes through all the levels on the way to the top).
>Make sure you catch all of the little details. :P

Underneath the battle (lower level interior of the building on the right), a man prepares to rise and fight for his family with his frying pan.... It IS a big frying pan though.

Note: The frying pan somehow got cut out of the picture. *facepalm*

While his build was insanely awesome, it was really quite simple. (Aside the rock-work) Not that it means much from me, but I just want to let you know I think you shoulda won. (I dunno if it's the same form you, but when I was told that it raised my spirits quite a bit) Great job again Elliot, and I wait for more builds from your ever-skilled hands. :)

The buildings are great. The smoke effect is a nice detail and your armored troll is very cool. The White Tree of Gondor is magnificent.

Top-tier work with architecture and creatures both. Best of luck in the MocAthalon Elliott, Jigsaw's going to do very well with you on the team.

I knew you will be a worthy opponent and your entry proved me right. I couldn't squeeze by with a quick build like previous rounds. Thanks for playing.

Wow! Not only did you have a portion of the wall, you've also added the fell beast and that troll! All of it is so well done! Fabulous work man!

Despite your brilliant Nazgűl design, that lovely tree, and some acute architectural details, your opponent's build takes the cake. Thanks for playing! You've shown your skill!

Wonderful entry, I love the creature designs. You almost got my vote, but Li Li's accurate and detailful microscale build convinced me slightly more!

In-credible! Looks so well put together from the buildings to the troll to the nazgul itself. Very nicely done!

This was, without doubt, one of the toughest rounds I've judged so far. Your brilliantly built Nazgul, cave troll, parts usage, and action scene had me really close to casting my vote for you, but in the end, I had to go with Li Li's microscale Minas Tirith partially because of his impressive techniques and partially because of his superb composition. That said, I wouldn't be at all surprised if you earn the votes of the other judges. Best of luck!
