Grant Davis vs. Matthew Oh
Category: The King of the Golden Hall
The kingdom of Rohan is deteriorating. With Saruman's pillaging, Wormtongue's poisonous words, and virtually a zombie on the throne, hope is all but gone. Use your bricks to show us the rustic beauty of Edoras and the events therein.
I had to quickly buy a bricklink order for the roof, but luckily it arrived in time. I had to order 345 tan slopes, and it wasn't enough!!!! Isn't that nuts! I have no clue what I am going to do with them after this round, whether I win or lose. I also heard that my opponent had to order too...this will be an interesting round.
My torch design that I came up with, and am very proud of.
I tried to create a horse, but as you can see, it didn't turn out so well....it also caved in many, many, many times, making me spend many long hours putting it back together! That was extremely annoying, and a waste of time. :D
Aragorn and Gimli PLACING their weapons against the wall, as described in the book.
A rather artistic shot.
The roof comes off for playability!
Some nobles watching in horror and confusion.
The right wall also opens up for even more playability!
Gimli standing over Wormtongue, making sure he doesn't move as Theoden changes. I used three capes for King Theoden, to make it look more robe-like. I think it turned out rather well! Something else for the judges to notice. :D He is not sitting on any of the capes, so they are perfectly fine! I would never intentionally ruin capes.
The main picture again.
Thanks for viewing, and good luck to you Grant!
Soli Deo Gloria!
