MOC: Balin

 Premiere of The Hobbit is near and I built this bust of Balin, an old dwarf from Thorin Oakenshield's company. I got the idea to make that huge white beard and then the rest of the MOC built itself around it. I'm glad I bought lots of small tan plates from LEGO shop in Berlin few weeks ago.

Balin's design in the movies looks excellent and he was my favourite dwarf in the book (Though most of the dwarves are not really characters...). Dark red is also a beautiful colour and I hope I would have been able to do the whole dwarf, but my collection of that beloved color is rather limited. And I had no idea how to do the arms.

Nothing much more to say about this simple little MOC. It work now as a guardian (Balin was the everyday watchman if you remember) of my bookself of the most important books (Mostly Tolkien with Darwin's Origin of Species and some Alan Moore's comics).
