Siege Of Gondor - 2012 MOCAthalon Entry . The White City Of Gondor . 2012 MocAthalon Group Team: The Ballistic Brickers! 5. Lord of the Rings LEGO is coming out with their own line of LOTR, here is your chance to show how YOU would design the sets. Build a MOC that depicts a scene from LOTR, and build it like you work for Lego. Therefore, playability is a major factor here as is great parts usage. When I set out to build in this category, I knew I had to build something good, so I though, "Gondor hasn't been done yet." So I built a set to fill that place, it the equivalent of the Uruk-hai Army set but for Gondor. The minifigures included would be a Troll, Faramir, Gothmog, Gondor Soldier, Orcs x2. Now all of the figures are preliminary, but Faramir is the one I'm most happy with. I thought the Orc with the skull was a good idea here. The catapult had the most time put into it as I had to make it sturdy and strong as well as use a few pieces as possible. While the wheel solution is simple, it feels like something LEGO would do. Using the rock piece as a counterweight just seemed right. The wall is the same height as the wall in Uruk-hai Army set. The soldiers need to have a way to get up on the wall to defend the city. They also need to be able to fight back, so they get their own catapult. Since a catapult is included, the wall has to be able to fall down when it's hit. And a video of the catapult launching. ---- This "set" has been sitting around since last Sunday as I built my other entries. I let my seven year old brother play with it as a sort of "test group", and it survived his beating. (Okay it didn't survive being chucked across the room but what set would?) The siege of Gondor has to be my favorite part in Return of the King so it seemed very fitting to build a set from it. Do keep in mind that I designed this like a LEGO set so it had to be simple and strong. Have I mentioned I don't like white-on-white editing? Built March 2012
