The Hornburg in Helm's Deep

I built this model as a promotional display for a store in Oslo. If you live nearby or visit Oslo you should check it out! The store is called outland and is located next to the main street of Oslo.
This is also probably the last MOC you'll see from me the coming months. I will have little time to build and no access to my bricks.

Please excuse me while I recollect the pieces of my jaw. It shattered when it hit the floor.

This is amazing work! :woo: Great job DNL!

Amazing. This is easily the best Helm's Deep build I've seen. I wish I could pull off rocks even half as good. Fantastic work!

Is the curve of the stairs achieved with 1x2 bricks?

Holy moly! Now that is awesome. The detailing is amazing! I love the rockwork, and the smoothness of the walls, but without making it look boring. Excellent work!
You would rather be building right now.

Oh wow. Now I wish I lived in Oslo. This is spectacular. The craggy rocks and the dark tan in the valley are great. Amazing job on such a challenging project.

WOW. I only wish I could have the amount of bricks, time, and skill that thing took to build. Maybe in 30 years. :D Top notch work! Really huge top notch work, actually. :lol:
