Weathertop Display

As stated yesterday, the second of my many planned displays for the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit ranges has been completed.

Weathertop, or Amon Sul, is featured in the early part of the book (or the first movie) as the place where the hobbits travel with Aragorn and Frodo will receive his stab wound from the Nazgul that will haunt him the rest of his life.

Located upon a rocky cliff in the middle of the grassy fields, the challenge was to build a decent cliff and then get the ruins attached on top of it.



I build it up like the set, with Aragorn duelling it out with the Witch King before a flabbergasted Frodo and Sam.


In the meantime, the other Nazgul approaches, while the Witch King`s horse was left at the foot of the hill.

Smaller then the Lake Town display I did earlier, as this is only a single set display, it none the less stands out in my cabinet due to it`s height versus the smaller base plate size.

And so concludes the second of the three display sets I really want to build this year, the third will be another equal size to this one, for the Rivendel set.  But with a lot of other projects that now REALLY need my attention, that one is for the longer road...
