So the links are rolling in from everywhere, thanks so much for all the great comments. Like I said, we had a blast building this, and all the feedback is really making us want to ramp up the production for next year (we now realize that there really is no such thing as TOO ambitious). I called up to my parents’ house to let ’em know that their bay window is now an Interweb celebrity, and for my brother to get on finding some city plans of Minas Tirith. It’s never too early.
So to answer a few questions:
Not in your life.
Now to answer some questions and include the actual question in question:
Are you the world’s biggest dork?
Damnit I hope so.
Why isn’t this model true to the book version of the battle?
Because besides being nerds we’re uber gay for Orlando Bloom, and elves in general, and if we’d left them out we’d have just been lying to ourselves.
What do you wish you could have changed about the finished product?
I wish they made gummi bears with sufficient, magnificent stubble, so Viggo could have really been portrayed.
What did you guys do with the model?
That’s long story. I left my parents house a couple hours after it was finished, satisfied. My brother and them took it to a New Year’s Day party where it entertained many children, dogs and cats. It was then purified by fire. Which I wish I had pictures of. 😦
So, wish I had more pictures, and someone had the brilliant idea of making a stop motion movie, so that might be something we pursue next year. But yeah, thanks again everyone.
EDIT: Also, my stats page now looks like the black tower of Sauron. Coincidence? I think not.
