Carved into the living green stone of the Lonely Mountain’s flank, the grand front gate of Erebor stood like a monument, proclaiming the power and skill of the Dwarves.
Impenetrable and proud, the great wall of hewn stone made a fortress of the mountainside, protecting the prosperous Dwarven city and the vast treasure of King Thror that it held.

I have to say I was expecting something special when I bought this environment but when it arrived I was blown away with the detail and the size of it!
