Moddb.com I522.photobucket.com Those look much more like the movies. This one looks more like a generic Watchtower.

I like the movies and all. But we follow the books. Pluss, this is a crumbling tower that has been in ruins since the early third age. Time has worn away all ornamentel features and elegant form. Note how weathered the stone itself looks. The movies looks very "together" for a tower set on top of a hill like that, where it has no real shelter from the wind.

I know that you guys follow along the books, but the ornamental Features gave the movie version a special feel! It had a more Fantasy look to it as well! Not to mean any offense but like I said before this looks like it could be a watchtower from anywhere. There isn't much Arnorian look to it. I know it's the team's decision on what it's going to be but I must say, Amon Sul should still have an ornamental feel to it, not some random tower on top of a hill.

And Plus the tower was destroyed for only 1600 years! (Destroyed 1409 TA) A long time still but I don't think that the craftsmanship of the Numenoreans would let the tower to fall into that much of a ruin. Just look at Osgiliath. It has been in Ruin for many years but much of it still remains intact (Even if it wasn't on top of a hill.) My main point is that even if it is ancient and ruined it should still have a cultural look and feel, which IMO the movie version had.

While you have a point, keep in mind that Osgiliath wasn't attacked and destroyed, it was simply abandoned. Amon Sul was attacked and destroyed. But still I see your point.

I thought Osgiliath was attacked? Either way I still think the movie version was pretty well portrayed from the books.

But If you do use this model my suggestion would to be to add some statues or more heraldic symbols of the Seven Stars, White Tree and other Numenorean Symbols to give it a more cultural flavor.

There actually are statues; they aren't in this pic. But yeah, we actually were debating about how to approach Amon Sul. One idea was to simply eliminate the dome arches from the movie version and have only the crumbling wall and pilars with cracks added to the floor or something. This version is what we have for now though, but things could change in the future

Alright then. I guess I'll just have to see what happens!
