Brickforge is great for MOCing Elves. The Silmarillion is my favorite Tolkien book and the Noldor fascinate with their innate ability to create through stone, metal, and jewels. They are also some of the best soldiers in Middle Earth history and their members include(d) Feanor, Fingolfin, Ecthelion, Glorfindel, Galadriel, Elrond, Gil-Galad, Turgon and Finrod Felagund.

My first order at brickforge included Spartan Helmets and some elvish looking weapons.

The first Minifig I made was Ecthelion who happens to be my favorite Elf of them all for having slayed Gothmog, lord of Balrogs and being the owner of the legendary sword Orcrist. I used the battle armor with segmented pauldrons and the elven helmet with a modified ninjago blade to act as his famous spike on his helm. Orcrist itself is a tactical kukri.

Also I created Prologue Elves from the Last Alliance which are basically Noldor Elves using the Spartan helmet since I felt the Elven helmet didn't look right:

More Noldor in a Elven fortress in Forlindon where Gil-Galad reigns as High-king of the Noldor:

Finally I have the Necromancer who is using the neck armor and round pauldrons plus the bonus mask/helmet which came with my order!

Wow!!
You've got some great looking minfigs and an awesome castle/fortress. Very nice!

And yes, Bf is amazing with the Elven accessories.

Question, the Eldrond Lego #5000202 comes with that Elvish armor torso with pendant, but where did you find the other elves with the movie elf armor? Looks great by the way!

Nice idea to turn the Pauldrons upside down!

Nice job! Good idea to put the Elrond torso on backwards.

That's a mighty fine army you've got there. :)

Off the top of my head, I would say that a bit less blue on the first few elves might be good, they feel too much like Númenóreans to me. but other than that, you're golden, no pun intended. Now where'd we put that Silmarill, Melkor?
