Orthanc Rising

Welcome back to another installment of, Building Orthanc. If you were wondering, this is where the construction crews have been instead of finishing lower whacker drive... This will be the final update before its premier unveiling at Adepticon, Friday April 20th.

 I give you the completed tower before it faces the paint brush. I can proudly say, not counting lego versions, that this will be the 4th built recreation of this movie icon according to a google search.

The balcony can fit a standard 25mm based model, perfect for over seeing an army before it marches to war. Thankfully the entire piece is big enough that the spikes, spires, and edges will not get in the way of players moving models or baggy sleeves.

This pinnacle of blue foam measures in at a final 42.5 inches tall with close to 1000 individual pieces cut and glued. At this point Plastruct should give me stock options...

" Together, my lord Sauron, we shall rule this Middle-earth. The old world will burn in the fires of industry. Forests will fall. A new order will rise. We will drive the machine of war with the sword and the spear and the iron fist of the orc." The Two Towers

 To complete the fire and ash of Isengard, here is a sneak peek at some additional terrain for the final tournament table. I cannot wait to see some games with this terrain; I think it will be a real treat for all fans.
