Battle of the Hornburg

The Battle of the Hornburg is the real name of the commonly known Battle of Helm’s Deep, one of the great battles in the original Lord of The Rings Trilogy. This battle happened in the second movie of the Trilogy, The Two Towers, and opposes about 2000 Rohirrim defenders and Elfs to about 10000 Orcs and Uruk-hai warriors.

In 2012 LEGO, under the Lord of the Rings IP, launched a set to represent this battle. It was a small set of 1368 pieces that brought 8 minifigures: Aragon, Gimli, Haldir, King Théoden and 4 Uruk-Hai.

Notice that i said it was small set. This because the recreation that the 2 AFOLs Rich-K & Big J. did of this battle is EPIC!

150.000 LEGO parts and 1700 minifigures were used to recreate one of the greatest battles in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. The construction weights about 160 pounds (70kg) and mesures 9 by 5 feet (approximately 2.7 by 1.5 meters).

And this is the final result:

If found this flickr page that i assume it is from one of the creators and were you can find even more pictures.

This is probably one of the most Epic MOCs ever built and probably one of the most amazing MOC of Lord of the Rings out there. Do you agree?
