Fortress Of Sauron
About this creation
I'm a better builder than I am a photographer, but here are some of my preliminary shots of my latest LOTR creation



I haven't come up with a brick-built Eye of Sauron that I'm happy with yet, so for the time being, I think it looks better without one than with an ugly looking one.



This guy is fairly large (taller than I am when it's up on a table for display) and pretty heavy. I don't have an accurate piece count but it's made from a ridiculous number of very small parts. Seven K-Boxes of small plates, slopes and bricks, two official copies of the Tower or Orthanc, five copies of the Black Gate set and a couple grand worth of Bricklink orders went into it and still made a major dent in my parts collection.



If I had to guess, I'd put the parts count in the 75-100 K range, but that's pure speculation on my part; after the first few cases of parts, I didn't bother keeping track of things anymore.



















I'll try to post more of a narrative (and better photos) when I have a bit more time. Thanks for visiting.

Amazing. Epic build. For what it's worth I find that the larger the model, the harder it is to photograph.

We are unworthy xD All kidding aside, I think this is one of the best Barad Dur interpretations ever. It is packed full of detail, I applaud you sir.

That is.... Stunning. Amazing work, truly wonderful building all around. Great, great job. As for the eye, why not something like this; https://m.flickr.com/#/photos/houndknight/4777834209/in/search_QM_q_IS_lego+sauron_AND_mt_IS_all_AND_w_IS_all Or this; https://m.flickr.com/#/photos/76272331@N05/9172072217/in/search_QM_q_IS_lego+sauron_AND_mt_IS_all_AND_w_IS_all Even without it though, this is really awesome. Truly amazing work.

It's kinda small.....kidding aside, this is a superb piece. Keep a high level of detail at this scale should always be applauded. Not all great MOCs at cons get official postings from their creators, so I am glad to not miss out on this one. Thanks for sharing your amazing effort.

Quoting Tim S Absolutely amazing job sir! I've seen quite a few models of Bara-Dur and this is one of the best! Now the question: is it transportable?
Thanks, That's quite a compliment. With respect to transportability: Yes, it was designed to come apart into four major sections and stacks like the world's most evil wedding cake. I did my best to hide and break up the seams so there weren't any distinct horizontal lines to give away the break points. To date, this has only had one outing. It managed an hour and half drive to BrickFair New England 2014 where it took the Public Fan Favorite Brickee award.
