I too want to see your vision of Gondolin
Please do share your model.
I know why you are
particulary interested in that one.
============= Tom Young
Looking at your pictures once again, I see your model of Minas Tirith is quite large, judging from the scale of the figurene book shelf beyond it. It has to be at least 12 feet wide
I saw your pictures before but am taking the time appreciate them more now.
Very cool room. Love the wall hangings as well.
I would love to see that room in real life.
I am imagining Gondolin within the encircling mountains on the field of Tumladen.
I so agree with Maeglin
, I really do want to see your vision of Gondilin . No pressure...well some. I really do want to see it.
The last glorious kingdom in The Silm. Mirroring Tirion. Thinking...I want to read The Silm...again.
Thank you. The mountain range is 12 feet long when put together. The back of MT is about 60 inches long roughly. The height of the most upper wall is 2 feet tall. The cliff with the citadel is 28 inches tall. The Mountain peak is at 34 inches tall.
The outer ring circle circumference...is about 10.5 feet. The radius of the outer most circle is close to 5 feet.
So it is a large model, however, it was made for gaming, not diorama. Keeping in mind I made it to be easily stored and being very modular. It basically can sit on a 12' x 6' table easily. You can place another 4 x 8 table infront of that for Pellennor fields. As I made the design for it, it just so happened accidently, that you can play every part of the castle, so it is easy to get to all of the model. The citadel is the only part that is hard to get to. My table is about 12' x 16'.
I also have Osgilith ruins and Helms Deep. Most of my LOTR minis are 28mm Harlequin minis that are Out of Production, with a mix of Mithril minis.
I have about
600 Gondor infantry/archers, 48 Cav (Harlequin)
200 Rohan infantry/arhcers, 120 cav (Harlequin)
100 Dol Amroth infantry/arhcers, 48 Knights on horseback or cav (Mithril)
300 High Elf army (Warhammer)
200 Dwarfs (Vendel)
So basically I have enough to game all the Middle Earth Ages, especially the 2nd age and 3rd age
In a way, the architecture of Gondolin is simular to Minas Tirith, but ofcourse not totally. Most of Tolkien's cities are circles, backing up to, or on top of mountains.
The cool thing, the mountains I made for Minas Tirith, I can use for my Helms Deep, and also for any castle I have, but can be used for the entrance into Moria, or even Erebor (especially).
I pretty much want to game all of Middle Earth, all periods...and I am almost there.
For now, I am going to be making a make shift Gondolin out of a few other castles I have (that I didnt make)....
but one day...I will make Gondolin....
Oh, and my game room is a two car garage, it has too many shelves in it. I have close to about 15,000 plus painted minis, that I have painted in the last 7 years, all in 28mm scale. I am into Warhammer, LOTR, Greek Myth, and (planet of the apes....)
I think I have listen to Lord of the Rings, the Similarion and Children of Hurin about 20-40 times varing while painting minatures over the years. And have hardly played, just paint, buy, build and collect everything for gaming, and have hardly gamed.
