About this creation

Continuing my series of Lord of the Rings micro-builds, I humbly offer my interpretation of Minas Tirith, the seven tiered city overlooking the Pelennor Fields and the banks of the the Anduin.



The model is 32 studs square and about the same length in height if you count the very tip of the tower. It's something of a mega-micro-build in that it's made from a very large number of very small parts for it's size



As this is relatively small model of an entire city, I tried to give it as much depth of detail as I could (unlike some of my other, more Architecture-like abstractions).



I was shooting for something with a distinctly recognizable shape that would catch your eye from across the room and reward those who bothered to take a closer look with tiny archways, causeways and spires that make the a city feel more organic and alive than any single structure within it.



This model has been taunting me for about ten years now (ever since I got a little Weta Workshop model with a boxed set of the movie. Creating seven tiers with concentric radii and just the right level of detail in a package that could still sit comfortably on a desk was a bit of a pain. One of my early attempts looked like a grey wedding cake with a cleaver sticking out of it. In the end though, I like how it finally came out. I hope you do too.



If you like the look of this and would like TLG to make a kit so you can have one for yourself, please check out my Cuusoo page, I'd appreciate any support you can render.

Thanks for stopping by.

Very good creation, smart idea making it micro rather than mini fig sized plus you can get more details of the rest of the castle, love it.

I've always thought that lego should cross the architecture/LOTR themes to build micro towers, cities, etc. This proves that it should and can be done!

And hey, you got all 7 levels in! Ours only had 5 but when you're working at minifig scale... well, 5 is more than enough. Great work on all this stuff and keep on sharing! ~ Chris.

But does it not look more greebly than architectural? Details are a good idea, but there are different types, and you made a science fiction detail work here. Work on it, the shaping is great and it really cought my eye though.
