MEMO Round 1: Balin's Tomb
As the Fellowship journeys through the Mines of Moria, they discover a room with a tomb. It is the tomb of Balin, son of Fundin...
About this creation
Hello again! This is my MEMO Round 1 entry, Balin's Tomb! This is my largest creation of 2014 at 36x52? studs. I tried to pack as much detail as I could, but toward the end I started to run out of bricks, that is why there is less detail towards the top. Now to the pictures, enjoy! :)



The main picture. The Fellowship prepares for an attack of goblins, and a cave troll!



Another view of the Fellowship! From this angle you are able to see a door in the back. It is not in the movie, but in the book there were two doors and they left one open to escape through.



Another angle...



The wall with the pillars...



Beside the doors...



The infamous well!



An overall shot at the whole MOC... is that Gollum?



My favorite picture! I did edit this picture to make it look more like the movie, so if that's a problem with the contest rules there are the other un-edited pictures :)

Thanks for viewing! It was a ton of fun to make this iconic scene from the Lord of the Rings trilogy! Advice and criticism is always appreciated! :)

God Bless!

Quoting Chris . Great entry! It caught me eye when I was looking around. Did you put LEGOO set in this build?
Thanks! No, I just used some pieces from the LEGO set. I made my own Balin's tomb, gate, etc.

Quoting Halhi 141 Oops - sorry, I got your entry mixed up with Elegost's and so my comment is completely backward. Terrific sense of mood and aesthetic. The lighting on the last pic is nice and the whole build has that "worried" vibe to it. However, technically it's a bit bland. This is still one of the highest scoring entries (for me, at least) but it could use seem better stonework and such to add more interest. The overall feel is fantastic though, good luck!
It's fine! :) Thanks, a lot of people have said I get a "feel" in my creations. Yeah I agree the stonework is lacking, I need to remember that if I move on. Thanks for the comment/s! :P
