[MOC] Attack on Weathertop

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Here is my MOC of the Tower of Amon Sûl! Set #9402 never quite cut it for me. While the set is nice  I feel the location demanded a larger parts budget than what was available. 

My MOC isn't minifigure scaled but rather scaled to look good with the minfigures included in the original set. The technique used for the rocks is the same I applied on my Rivendell MOC from 2014. With the idea it would help make the display look uniform.

I like it very much. Also has the right size on top of the "plate". Surely with more stones there would have been a little more "height". But as we all know, more is always possible. The colour palette is very harmonious and the construction of the stairs is magnificent. Terrific!

Thank you for the kind words. Its funny now you say it; it isn't particularly tall. Perhaps a future update will add som height, thanks for the suggestion!

Love the seamlessly angled joins between the walls. The floor and rockwork are also top notch. Yep, would be happy if this was next year's official LOTR set, great job! :thumbup:

I have the original set but I think it's much more blocky than this one which has great personality! :excited:
Excellent construction techniques! :thumbup:

Thank you for the kind words! I still really like the original set, it came with some great minifigures!

Really like your MOC, great rockwork and detail at a scale and style that fits with the official sets.

I built a MOC of Weathertop based on the Weta polystone statue but in my attempts to capture all the details it grew to an unwieldy size.

Thank you! Your MOC look fantastic. The size really allowed for plenty of details that I miss at my scale. The way the staircase is embedded in the wall and the much more rounded shape than mine are some of my favorite parts of your MOC.
