Microscale LEGO Helms Deep, Minas Tirith and Bag End

I’m always impressed by people who can build LEGO struc­tures at microscale. You’ve got so few bricks to work with that you have to somehow strip out all the intri­cate details form an object and yet still get across what makes it distinctive.

Which is exactly what builder Barton Thinks has done with his microscale recre­ations of Helm’s Deep and Minas Tirith from The Lord of the Rings. If you’ve watched the movies, you can pretty much imme­di­ately recog­nize these castles. They are quite bril­liant in their simplicity. His (non-castle obvi­ously) microscale Bag End is equally impressive.

Barton Thinks has produced a lot of other microscale creations outside of Middle-Earth that are also worth a look.
