Looming three-thousand feet over the parched plains of Mordor was the vast and terrible fortress of Barad-dûr, the home of the Dark Lord Sauron. Held aloft by the iron will of its master, the great tower was the ultimate testimony to the might of Sauron. From its black stone summit the Dark Lord would cast his malevolent gaze across the desolate stretch of Gorgoroth to the west, seeking the return of the Ring that held the key to his dominion of Middle-earth.

Torn down after his defeat at the Last Alliance of Men and Elves at the end of the Second Age, over centuries the Dark Tower was rebuilt even greater than it had been before, for while the Ring survived, the foundations of Sauron’s power would always remain intact and his power grow again.

A behemoth

Weta's most elaborate and intricate environment from The Lord of the Rings, Barad-dûr - Fortress of Sauron is the crowning glory in a line that contains such icons as Orthanc - Black Tower of Isengard, Bag End, The Argonath and of course the magnificent Rivendell.

Soaring from the base, the ominous dark tower reaches an impressive total height of more than 20 inches (530 mm) and weighs in at a staggering 22 lbs (10 kg).

The menace of the Dark Lord is perfectly captured in every detail, this piece is an EXACT model of the Shooting Miniature (or BIG-ature) used by director Peter Jackson in The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Every crag, buttress, rampart and pinnacle has been expertly reproduced by Weta Senior Model maker David Tremont and his team of model makers, mould makers, sculptors and painters.

Barad-dûr - Fortress of Sauron is different to other environments in that it will be made from a combination of polystone and polyurethane. Being such a complex structure, the use of polyurethane ensures the smallest and finest details can be accurately reproduced with reduced risk of breakages.

The terror

Barad-dûr - Fortress of Sauron has been a labour of love and terror for David Tremont, as you can read in a series of articles he has written for you on our website. Read them and get an idea of the effort involved in making this model. More than 1,500 hours of sculpting and modelmaking, moulding and painting.

And there are more articles to follow. Please subscribe to our newsletter and we will keep you informed of the process and of additional pieces in this range of environments.

The Eye of Sauron App

For those who want to add a bit of movie magic to their sculpture of Barad-dûr - Fortress of Sauron, we have created a FREE app for your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. You can download the Eye of Sauron App from the iTunes App Store, point it at the sculpture and get a feel for what it might be like to walk a mile in Frodo's shoes. Or Hobbit feet.
