Same; it's very rare that I see a depiction of Balrogs (official or otherwise) that even comes close to capturing what I envision when I read the description of it in Fellowship. Thanks for sharing the link to this one! :)

I too like that depiction of the balrog!

I've built my Rivendell. I'm not mad keen on Barad-dûr but it looked better in the shop than the pictures online.

I would prefer Minas Tirith or Meduseld.
