Just got back into Lego building three months ago, and this is my first MOC. I've learned a lot the past few months from all of you so thank you for all of our contribution to this great website.
I was so excited when I first learned of the official Helm's Deep set, and knew I wanted to make it my first MOC. Did some research and found Eurolock's fantastic MOC Helm's Deep, and was inspired to do something similar. Did more research on Helm's Deep and came across Adam Middleton's excellent cross section art work of Helm's Deep (https://www.artstation.com/artwork/9gdly). The layout of my MOC for the most part follows Adam's cross section (see the link), while the actual Lego building was very much based on Eurolock's MOC. I had to limit the scope to just the main gate of the great hall due to space constraints, but the build is still plenty big.
Once inside the keep, a ramp to the left takes you to the main archway of the inner keep. On the other side, it leads down to the entrance of the stables, which is what Adam's cross section depict it to be.
From Adam's cross section, there is a basement underneath the entrance of the great hall, which I think is where the armory is supposed to be (watched the film over and over and no hint on the armory's location). The armory is accessed through an archway just inside the main archway to the inner keep, where there are stairs that leads down to the armory.
Above the entrance of the great hall on the second floor is supposed to be the living quarters. I made the area next to the windows a private dining area.
