The complete construction of a 28mm Minas Tirith

Sat Aug 24, 2013 7:35 pm

As I made Minas Tirith I photographed from start to finish. It took about 7 weeks or so. I did a lot of reading and learned some stuff for a few weeks before I started. It is made out of extruded foam and Styrofoam, except for the GamesWorkshop Minas Tirith walls I used ( gave me a reason to buy some sets). Anyways, it is very pic heavy, but I enjoy looking back at the work I had to do to make my dream come true of having the battle of Pelennor Fields with Minas Tirith in the game. Also I wanted to post the pics in the case of someone else wanting to try to make something out of extruded foam. When I was looking there was not too many sites offering help. Minas Tirith is large, so not many people have the space, which is understandable. I have a large garage for my gaming, and my weakness is siege warfare...so I have lots of castles and cities. Making things out of foam isn't as hard as it seems. Keep in mind, I consider myself a complete rookie, and think my stuff is ok. There are way too many more people that do it so much better than myself. But I am happy with my results.

Looks very good. I have learned a lot reviewing the blog. I need to finish up Moria so I can start on a Deeping Wall!

I love the fact that you have made multiple levels, enough space for Denethor to jump off to his flaming death!

That's really amazing. I have a lot of respect for anyone who can commit to a project that big. Also, I really like your other displays! Is that a scout trooper uniform I saw?
