    It’s not the “City of Kings,” it’s Minas Tirith. Minas Tirith doesn’t even MEAN city of kings, it means Tower of the Guard after it overtook Osgiliath (Fortress under the Stars) in defense capability. It wasn’t ever called city of kings in the novel. There was no king, just a Steward of the throne (Denethor II) for many, many years. Yes, a king (Anarion) built it, but he originally named it Minas Anor(Tower of the Sun).

    @Skulltimo: If it was supposed to be made out of high-quality modeling material, then it wouldn’t be as good as it could, but this is fucking made of matchsticks. I can’t make a stick out of matchsticks. Can you make non-linear buildings out of matchsticks?

    I wonder if Minas Tirith is rent controlled. It’s a populous city with little room and no expansion outside it’s walls.
