Ultimate Helm’s Deep MOC

I first ran across this back when it was posted on TheOneRing.net over two weeks ago but finally getting around to posting it now. There isn’t much I can say about this that wouldn’t be a cliché. Massive, mind-blowing, overwhelming, all appropriate and somewhat trite at this point. What can you say about huge MOCs of this caliber that hasn’t been said before? Maybe… expensive? That’s an adjective. I don’t even want to think about the financial investment. 150,000 bricks and 1,700 mini-figures ain’t cheap. Check out Goel Kim’s flickr stream for way more pics.

This, OneLUG’s Tower of Orthanc, now we just need a proper Minas Tirith.

Steve Poulsen’s Helm’s Deep Display

Full-View-Helm's-Deep2

Steve Poulsen built this massive version of the fortress at Helm’s Deep for ULUG’s presentation at the Great Basin Train Club when they decided to add some LotR scenes to their layout. He says it took him around 100 hours and lists not only building stats, but future upgrades he plans to make because he’s not satisfied yet. I don’t even care if the rockwall make it more of a Helm’s Shallow because it looks impressive and the desire to frame it off from the surrounding displays not only makes sense, but makes for better pictures.

The Battle Of Helm’s Deep Is Over…

The Hornburg at Helm's Deep

…The MOC’s are just getting started. The latest in builds grand enough to dare to capture the books/films epic scale is this massive version of Helm’s Deep. With talk of OneLug’s “Last March of the Ents” and Nick’s review of the official set today, I figured this would be a good time to bring Daniel Z “DNL”‘s version of the fortress to the attention of anyone who may have missed it. As Nick mentioned in his review, the causeway to the gate needs to be high enough that it would be doubtful you’d survive the fall and this pulls that off well. Add to that the height of the walls and the fantastic rock work and this makes for a keep that will never fall as long as men defend it, or until Daniel decides to build something else.
