Melo Round 1:Osgiliath . My entry for the first round of the middle earth lego olympics. This build took me approximately 6 days to build. After receiving the mines of moria set for christmas, I added many small details, and polished the whole build up somewhat. Anyways, enough of that small talk, lets get to the build. In the time before the Fellowship of the Ring, Gondor had half of Osgiliath under their control. After many small skirmishes and battles, the garrison in Osgiliath was thoroughly exhausted from the numerous attacks by the seemingly endless orc army. But then the brave captain of Gondor, Boromir, son of the Steward of Gondor, Denethor, came to the defense of Osgiliath. He fought back the fierce orc attacks, and eventually captured the other side of Osgiliath, on the opposite bank of the river Anduin. In this scene, Boromir, and a garrison of Gondorian archers and knights repel an orc attack on the Gondor controlled half of Osgiliath, before the Gondorian army had captured the opposite bank. I hope you enjoy, and as always, if you enjoy the build, please rate and comment. Wish me luck! ~RORY~ . The necessary link to the Middle earth olympics .
