In celebration of passing the 2000 members milestone and becoming the largest group on MOCpages, the Fellowship of the Brick invites the entire MOCpages community to share in a fantastical undertaking! The objective is for the community to collaboratively produce an impressive archive of 2000 8x8 and/or 16x16 Middle Earth themed vignettes over the next year! Ridiculous? Yes. Unrealistic? Absolutely. But the same was said of Frodo's quest to destroy the Ring, so come and join the fun!
About this creation
Hey everyone,

Here is another vignette for the 2000 vignettes challenge over on the Fellowship of the Brick.

This one is a 16x16 micro-scale model of Barad-dur, Sauron's awesome looking yet very evil fortress. I'm very pleased with the final product.

I hope you enjoy!











I really like how the walls turned out. I fiddled around with a couple designs until I settled on this one. 1x1 cylinders are very useful.









The Eye is my favorite mini-fig head. Best one that Lego has made yet, in my opinion.




Thanks a lot for viewing! C&C are appreciated!

Have a good night.

~Mark

P.S. My good friend, Mariner 1000, just joined. Check him out! He's a fantastic builder.

Thanks a lot, guys! I really appreciate it! As for the rocks, I probably used to much cheese. I was trying for a "jagged" feel as the rocks around Barad-dur are rather sharp and angular.

This is really cool and detailed! I'd say that there are too many cheese slopes too, though. -Noel
