Speaking of Tolkien, It is my dream to make helms deep out of legos so i was wondering if you guys think I should use light or dark grey(both are bluish vareties) I am only 15 so this is like a life long project but my concerns are the dark grey blending in with the rocks and the cost of getting all the dark grey when i am also getting light grey for normal castles. Thanks.
I do believe that any color will suffice, and dark and light grey will not blend together
but my advice is to try to build NOW, this moment, if not whole Helm's Deep, then just entrance, or the wall
In any colors that you have
you will see, experience that you will get with building it will benefit you greatly when you build it later on, in years to come, when your Lego collection get bigger and the joy you will feel planning and building will be reword for itself
Do not have enough grey bricks? Use red. Or yellow (or blue, but you could keep blue just for that little stream that was doom of Helm's Deep
. Improvise, and put wings on your imagination - i.e. it does not have to be the same as in the movie (book), you can add something, or remove some part
Here are examples of Lego built Helm's Deep: link
And here's example of the smaller one: link
And, at the end, here's one blue one: link
There, building will give you so much joy, even if you do not finish it, because shortage of bricks or time.
