My second micro Lord of the Rings creation, after Edoras. Andrew JN suggested that I build Rivendell, and I was skeptical about being able to pull it off in micro-scale at first. The main build process took a little over 2 weeks, and then I needed to wait a bit longer for parts to arrive to finish the model. It was primarily based off of these two images: picture 1, picture 2. The model is view-able from all sides, and while one of my most complex micro creations, it was an extremely rewarding build.

Rivendell, also known as Imladris, was an Elven town and the house of Elrond located in Middle-earth. It is described as “The Last Homely House East of the Sea”, referencing towards Valinor, which is west of the Great Sea in Aman.


  1. Awesome job Isaac! This one is really cool! The vast variety of colors looks great here! The architecture is great, with my favorite part being the stairs on the left! Keep it up! 😀

  2. Wonderful! Definitely fits the mood and beauty of Rivendell, Probably my favorite micro from you ever. I love the use of orange hair pieces! I’m not really feeling the waterfalls, but at this scale those would be understandably difficult :)

  3. Thanks guys!
    @Hildigrim: I think the waterfalls look better in real life, without the glare reflecting off of them.
