"There stands aloft a great hall of men, and it seems to my eyes that it is thatched with gold." - Legolas, The Two Towers
About this creation
Finally, a Two Towers MOC! I fancied a change from making castles and so on, and the new Pirates sets very kindly supplied me with a lot of brown elements, so I thought well, why not...
It was actually trickier than I thought! But it turned out ok, and after stealing from Isla de Muerta, I managed to get the Rohan 'sun' emblem over the doors.
Naturally, the set makes use of my favourite 'two walls and a roof' method to display the insides, where Theoden, Wormtongue whispering in his ear, waits to hear Eomer's report on the invasion of Rohan.
The SNOTed chandelier. Gives it a cast-iron-y sort of look.
No custom figures in this one I'm afraid, and I can't even boast about being 'purist', as I used a Brickforge helmet for Eomer. Can't win them all.
Bird's eye view, to show the construction of the interior.
So there we go... more from The Two Towers coming soon... or maybe just after exam period...
Whoa Brickpop... never heard of it! But great anyway! I was quite enjoying my new fame then I saw the frankly wonderful medieval castle two panes below... own up, whoever it was. By the way, thanks for all the comments dudes!

Nice MOC; the top of the roof looks pretty cool with the cup in the middle. The minifigures could do some work however.
