Helm's Deep (also known as the Deeping Coomb) was a large valley in the north-western Ered Nimrais (White Mountains). The valley was blocked over its entire width by the natural series of hills called Helm's Dike and behind that lay the fortress of Aglarond or the Hornburg, at the entrance to the Glittering Caves. A long causeway wound up to the great gate of the fortress itself. Inside the keep there were stables and an armoury, as well as a great hall in the rear which was dug out of the mountainside. There also was a great tower the top of which consisted of the great horn of Helm Hammerhand. The Deep which stood next to the fortress was barred by the long Deeping Wall, which consisted of solid rock except for a small culvert which allowed water from the Deeping Stream to enter; this rendered a fresh supply in sieges of great length, though this small weakness would eventually prove to be the wall's undoing. Access to the fortress from within the Deep was made possible by a long stair which led to the Hornburg's rear gate, where there was a massive system of caves behind the fortress.
About this creation
I always said:'' I am not able to make Helms Deep, it's just to big''. Well, that's true. I made 2 smaller versions of just the Horn Dike and the Gate, but never the whole thing, ( altought I did try to /failed/)
However, I really wanted to give it a try again. Since I have stoped buying Lego, I knew I wouldn't be able to make it on the scale I wanted to. Like this, it's way to small to make it look accurate (to the movie). Anyway, I tried, and really enjoyed it. It doesn't have all the details it should have, and not all part are how they are supposed to be, all because the lack of bricks I needed. But still, I myself quite like the results, even though it is so ''small''. Also, I don't have any of the sets, so I had to use custom figures.
