Helm's Deep Story Tower . . My entry into The Contest Group's Post-MocAthalon Contest, and Lego Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Custom Minifigures and MOC's Battle of Helm's Deep Customization contest!
For the Contest Group:
You've been assigned to illustrate one of your favorite books, show us in the brick one of the illustrations. This should not be based on an existing picture, but your own interpretation of a scene. The more of an artistic flair you give your build, the higher your score will be.
Well, this was my first attempt at a story tower, and I must say, they are quite fun to build! Getting the techniques to make the tower look good and support the levels above it was a terrific challenge! :D Each level is one of my favorite scenes from the Battle of Helm's Deep.
The last three pictures were a bit rushed, as I forgot to include the characters.
Besides that, Enjoy!
The whole tower
The explosion! Kaboom! I DID NOT use photoshop for the red light. It is the red light brick that comes in the orc forge, a great set with some awesome pieces!
Legolas riding down the stairs on an Orc Shield, one of my favorite scenes!
The Gimli Toss!
The forced perspective build of Eomer getting ready to charge down the hill to save Helm's Deep!
The heroes, with their custom torso's as the contest rules stated, besides Gimli. Not the best job, but not the worst. :D
Rohan Soldiers, the one on the right has a custom made torso.
The Oh Family Orc collection!
Have a fantastic day!
Soli Deo Gloria!
