    MELO R3: Ithilien

    Hello! This is my entry for Round 3 of the Middle Earth Lego Olympics! My category was Ithilien, so I decided to build the fight between the oliphaunts and the rangers of Ithilien! Linky to MELO... :D So, onto the build: Again, no WIP pictures this time, as I just wanted to chug through this one without any advice... :D This build is roughly 70 x 60 at max with an irregular baseplate, the oliphaunts took around 5 days to build and the landscape took the other 3... (The first 2 days I was still scrambling for what to build...) So yeah, I really went out of my comfort zone for this one, I am not a pro at BBFs, but I really do like these, the heads are actually at a couple different angles off of each other, and the "nets" in the movie are out of lego capes... I hope the judges see that I went out of my comfort zone for this one... :D Anyways, I hope you enjoyed! This was a fun one! Good luck Classical! May the best Ithilien Ranger win! :D C&C Appreciated! To God be the glory!

    MELO R2: Minas Tirith

    Hi! This is my entry for Round 2 of the Middle Earth Lego Olympics! My category was Gondor, so I decided to build a wall section of Minas Tirith! Onto the build: No WIP pictures this time, as I just wanted to chug through this one without any advice... :D This build is roughly a cubic foot, it's length is a little longer, and it's height is a little short... Also, it is probably around 2200 pieces... So, Minas Tirith is a very monochromatic subject, as you can see, most of the build is in the greyscale. Which in my opinion makes the market scenery pop out, and really gives the action to the figs, what the scene is about... I hope you enjoyed! This was a fun one! Good luck Sean! May the best Gondorian win! :D C&C Appreciated! To God be the glory!

    [MOC] Over Hill and Under Hill...

    Hello! This is my fourth of 19 posts I will be doing, where I will be building my way through the Hobbit story, one chapter per post, I will do this over the course of the year... I built this back in May, for MELO, but it also worked out as my next build for my Hobbit Project, and I just haven't gotten around to posting it till now... Anyways, about the build, this is on a 50 x 30 ish base, and is about 1500 pieces, is super flimsy, and was a ton of fun to make! :D So, I hope you enjoy! :D Here are some more pics: And of course, some WIP pics: Again, this was built a while back, so you will probably recognize it from a previous post, still, please comment, like, and leave some constructive criticism! :D I hope you enjoyed! To God be the glory!

    MELO R2: Minas Tirith

    Thanks! That was a last minute decision because I didn't have the type of pieces I needed for a little bottom wall section of the lower wall... Thanks again for the feedback! :D Thanks! Yeah, it took around 20 minutes because most of the tiles were upside down and I had to flip them. But, I still left quite a few upside down... Thanks again! :D

    MELO R2: Minas Tirith

    Thanks! I wanted to keep the stone Minas Tirith feel, so I didn't go for the dk. blue, but that would have been my second choice... Also, pictures are pretty bad, the lighting was terrible that day, and I had to finish before the deadline...

    [MOC] A Short Rest...

    Hello! This is my third of 19 posts I will be doing, where I will be building my way through the Hobbit story, one chapter per post, I will do this over the course of the year... Anyways, about the builds, these are three builds, that I wanted to do, and I felt like they best fit into the Rivendell chapter best, so I decided to build three builds, and put them in one post... :D So, my first build is on an irregular baseplate, but it is roughly 36 x 52... Also, fun fact, of the colors that are showing minus the figs, there are only three colors total... :D Here is my main pic: Here are some pics of my first build: The ugly backside: Here is a pretty similar to the finished product WIP pic of my first build: So, my second build doesn't really have a baseplate, but it is roughly 39 x 16... Also, fun fact, of the colors that are showing minus the figs, there are only three colors total... :D Here are some pics of my second build: Here are some WIP pics of my second build: And finally, my third build, which also doesn't have a baseplate, and is about 30 bricks wide... Also, only three colors, if you don't include the texturing on the map... Here are some pics of my third build: Here are some WIP pics of my third build: I hope you enjoyed as much as I had fun building them!!!! My favorite is by far the second one, and I experimented with two different colors blended rockwork, all these have three different colors showing... :D C&C Appreciated! To God be the glory!

    [MOC] A Short Rest...

    Thanks Loreman!!!! My problems is I didn't take my chance that I had to get the Hobbit/LOTR sets, I only got bag end, so I only have these characters... Thanks for the suggestions though!! Very helpful! :D :D :D
  13. Hello everyone, there is a contest, that comes around annually, and never ceases to impress, both with the fun from the participants, the difficulty deciding for the judges, and even the amazement of the viewers, of the the Middle Earth builds posted in the 5th annual Middle Earth Lego Olympics on Mocpages. I had the honor of helping set up the contest this year, and I am very excited for what is ahead, since the Mocpages forum is dying off, and we still want to have a competition that is fun, and challenging, we are advertising this contest on all other sites so that it can meet the expectations of the moccers on Mocpages. There will be six rounds, of different Middle Earth related such as Poems/Songs in the books and/or movies. Round 1 will be a free for all, which will be judges by 6 judges on a 1-10 point scale where the top 32 contestants will move on to the next round, then, from rounds 2-6, the rounds will be a one-on-one moc-off, where contestants will face off, and the judges will choose whose build they think is better. Please check out the contest by clicking the link below the banner: Mocpages Group Link!!!!!! Thanks so much for viewing, I hope you choose to compete, view, or donate to this great contest, no matter what you do, I hope you come along for the ride to Mordor! To God be the Glory!!!

    [MOC] Roast Mutton...

    Hello! This is my second of 19 builds I will be doing, where I will be building my way through the Hobbit story, one chapter per build, I will do this over the course of the year... Anyways, about the build, this is one of the bigger Roast Mutton scenes I have seen, and is on a 52 x 53 quarter irregular base. Here are some more pics: Here are some WIP pics: And here is the main pic again: This project started out pretty quickly, then kinda slowed down... I also had to clean my lego room, which surprising or not, took me about a week and a half to do... Another issue I faced, is the trolls themselves, as you can see, I am pretty bad with making brick-built creatures... :P I really struggle with that, and these (Which isn't great...) are my best brick-built creatures yet, otherwise, this IMO is a pretty good, and detailed moc... C&C Appreciated! To God be the glory!

    AoM: Mill Phase II: Holt Windmill

    Awesome job Isaac! The colors are great, along with that awesome stonework, and the round roof, it looks wonderful! Keep it up man! :D
  22. Nice! The colors fit together really good, and of course, the flag works great for over the door, but the reddish brown studs on the side of the building are just a wonderful addition helping the scene look real! Keep it up! :D

    Awesome job Isaac! I love these great small buildings in market scenes. :D Colorwise, the blue door is definitely the best, but technique wise, that cobblestone is pretty awesome. Headlight bricks are just awesome! :D Keep it up Isaac! :D
