Well, it's about that time for an update of some sorts.
To begin, here's what the fortress looked like before.
The Stairs along the wall:
The wall for the stairs:
And now, what the fortress looks like recently:
The Gate: (It is incredibly difficult to cut smooth, straight lines or make corners.)
Outline of Gate:
To show scale of how big this is:
I still have to take pictures again as I've glued the cut out stairs, the wall, and the towers together.

In modeling news, I didn't make it very far on my scratch-built Sauron.
Here's the first layer that I put on to him:

My attempt at muscles. Since it's just going to get covered, I didn't finish them.

Another new project, Khandish Warriors:
weird is that the blister came with two weapon arms but was missing the
front leg. So now, I need to make it from scratch. Or attempt it
And so, again I'm sorry for such a long post with a lot of pictures.
Please comment. I want to know if my Helm's Deep looks any good. I like it but I like your opinions. 8)
Hopefully I can update sooner than before. We'll see.
Till next time!
