I just spotted on The Brothers Brick that the Lego Military Annual Build Competition is back after a two-year hiatus. The categories for 2016 are Infantry Fighting Vehicles, 20th Century Battlefields, World of Tanks, Naval Aviation, and the Simpsons-themed Springfield’s Citizen Militia.

Brikwars on Delve
Can you believe there are people that don’t know about Brikwars? I recently appeared as a guest on the Mad Adventurers Society’s podcast Delve to talk about Brikwars and how it led me to design my own board game Mothership.

Brikwars is a great war-game in so many ways and I hope I represented our community well. To discuss any stuttering or factual errors I made, please visit this forum topic.

If you know me you know I generally love building a Brikwars battlefield more than actually playing on it. Just a few gems I found on Flickr that I would love tear apart in the course of a long battle.

The last photo though is proof that still, messy battlefields are just as good and funnier.

 

 

I’m loving all of Bluefog’s battles at the moment and all of you should check them out.

First one that caught my eye is his awesome “Battle of the Seven Seas”. The ships are fantastic as is that skull island.

Next is “Defend Women and Children” which features a great battlefield with…ROOMS! Yes that’s right, rooms. I love rooms and it really is a testimony to the amount of long 1 X whatever bricks are in Bluefog’s collection.

Last of all, and my favorite: Pinky Pie’s Revenge. With a map that is haphazardly thrown together and a giant , non-lego figure in the middle this battle really showcases what Brikwars is all about.

Tim Schwalfenberg has some put together some incredible scenes. The first two photos are of his amazing StarCraft diorama, and the third is titled ‘Cyber Slums’. Check out 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.
