Tim Schwalfenberg, the man with the silliest surname in the galaxy, has some put together some incredible scenes. First two photos is his amazing star craft diorama and the second is titled ‘Cyber Slums’. Checkout his full flickr gallery for the rest of his work.

Some apocalypse scenes for your Friday viewing pleasure. My favorite has to be Olivia’s house all boarded up and run down. Someone needs to make a Brikwars army full of those weird looking mini-dolls. They’d have great looking hair while being blown to smithereens.

Just a reminder that you can gain more Brikwars goodness from subscribing to the official subreddit or by following our pintrest feed curated by none other than Lord Rayhawk himself. That’s right, Mike takes time away from washing his yacht and gargling his prize winning greyhounds to bring you the best plastic construction toy violence the net has to offer.

Dork Tower by John Kovalic I mean Greg Hyland
Mike - November 5, 2014 - Brick Links

BrikWars got a mention in John Kovalic’s Dork Tower today, thanks to a guest strip from Greg Hyland.

Igor seems suspiciously defensive (spoiler alert) of his Friends affinity, but anyone who’s actually bought these sets know how great they are for miniatures wargaming, especially if you’re into painting and customizing figures.

Statcard Generator
aoffan23 - May 28, 2014 - Bonus Material, Brick Links

There was a time when few people made statcards for their units because it was a tedious process. Too many layers to work with, too much CP to calculate, and too much effort to put into something that could be easily written down on paper.

That time has ended.

Forum user WestNordOst has gone through the effort of creating a full-fledged statcard generator. Just enter the unit’s Structure, Propulsion, Weapons and other features, and watch as it instantly calculates the unit’s CP and adds the information to the card. Then, pimp out your statcards by changing the coulours and adding flavour text and a picture of your unit. Hit the Print button and BAM, you’ve got yourself a sweet statcard that took about five minutes to make.

Link is provided below, as well as the link to the thread so you can see any future updates.

Too often, Brikwarriors are separated from their bricks by the evils of real life and education. But LEGO® Digital Designer (LDD) has come to the rescue, allowing these poor souls to continue their campaigns of chaos and destruction. Featuring city-sized dreadnoughts, massive fleets, and Eldritch abominations ripped from pretentious anime, LDD microspace battles are what Star Wars and Warhammer 40k wished they could be. Also remember to check out some of the excellently designed ships from the expert builders fredde and dilanski.

It turns out there are lots of games you can play with bricks besides BrikWars. In honor of Hyperbole and a Half’s semi-triumphant return to updating, here’s their coverage of the state of the art in brick gaming circa 2010.

Hi everybody! Remember that video I was telling you about in the previous post? The “Lego Black Ops” one?

Within the same day, eBaum’s had already stolen it, slapped their logo on it, and started collecting ad revenue for it. Which is to be expected, that’s what they do. What pisses me off is that in the couple days since then, people have been sending me links to it as if it were the original content, which it isn’t, obviously.

I usually figure that that site has been around long enough that people know better than to pass around eBaum’s links, but some of you are pretty new to the internet and don’t know about those guys yet. So for those of you not clued in: DON’T USE EBAUM’S. Don’t visit it, don’t link to it, don’t put up with other people who do.

Their sole reason to exist is to steal original content from guys like me, pretend it’s theirs, and make money off it. Every time you visit a page on their site, and every time you send someone else there, you’re giving them ad revenue for their stolen work.

Just saw a stop-motion video by Keshen8 that’s not to be missed – it runs like a highlight reel for BrickArms weaponry (though I think I spot at least a couple of Brickforge pieces in there as well – am I wrong?).

I try to update the links every now and then with new custom-weapons shops that catch my eye, but I really only get a tiny fraction of what’s out there, and there are a couple of sites that are much more dedicated and do a much better job.

Most of the customs news I follow these days comes from the Ugly Duckling at Bricklink minifig news blog and the FireStar Toys reseller site. These will give you a much better idea of the full range of minifig options available, and I figure this is as good an excuse as any to pass along some links.

The BrikWiki: Like a Library of Death.
Natalya - December 7, 2010 - Brick Links

It has been around for a while, but it has never made it into the newsfeed. I’m talking about the BrikWiki — BrikWars’ wiki where you can learn about Triangleism, Orange Transparent, or the horrific events which took place at Hospital 555. Below I’ve linked some of the better-written pages. Go have a look:
