BRIKWARS is the plastic-brick wargaming system that throws the peaceful worlds of your favorite construction toys into wanton chaos and destruction!

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.

With the holidays upon us, the pace of battles is increasing. What is it about time spent home with the family that inspires so much violence?

Durandalski and his sister toss over a hundred troops at each other, in a semi-heated battle between the forces of Commander Roland of Morfair and Princess Liader of Brinstar. Each side rolled dice to determine their secret mission objective, and then sent their armies into a battle of cataclysmic… surrendering.

Fortunately some of the surrendering units turned out to be faking it.

Durandalski’s report includes the following passage, which is very satisfying:

“We estimated that over half of each of our forces, that’s nearly 60 minifigs, were killed in an area about 1 and a half feet square. The bodies were piled up on each other, and the living had to be propped up on top of the dead. I also sniped my own medic, after he failed six revival attempts.”

I came across a couple of BrikWars reviews today – the first is great for its use of the term “Brick nipples,” but the second is simply amazing. It may be the single best BrikWars review I’ve ever listened to. It’s only four episodes after the Dwarf Fortress review, and they only used the phrase “really retardedly broken” once.

The verdict: “This is a game where you can have dueling spider robots covered in ninjas crashing into each other under an airship exploding.”

August sees a healthy share of violence, with battles between Mohawk and Professor Ken, further battles between OneEye589 and ktBombshell, and a chariot battle by Shaeph.

Nice. But the name makes me wish their logo was an armchair in uniform.

Armchair General is putting up a pretty awesome series of articles – “Tactics 101,” in which they cover a specific tactical concept each month and describe how to use it in play. While most BrikWars games will never reach this level of seriousness, I still find myself wishing I’d discovered this series months ago.

Gladius posts to the forum with a full-fledged ruleset for microscale Lego spaceship combat, and cool microscale Lego spaceship photos to back it up.

Led by the football-obsessed Piltogg, the Minnesota Gamers Guild is making a name for itself for its genocidal crusades. Earlier struggles of ethnic cleansing against peach-colored minifigs are now being followed up with battles to wipe out the forces of Mega Bloks.

Be warned! Piltogg hasn’t yet perfected the art of the line break, so you’ll need to resize your browser window for some of the write-ups to line up correctly.

More battle reports are posting every month as the summer fighting season swings into full gear. This time around we’ve got dimension-hopping side quests, demon gates, assassins at McDonald’s, exploding horses, a soldier with a grenade for a head, a mech with its feet on backwards, and HOT MAGMA. Not to mention an accounting error that destroys the world.

Andrew Colunga’s ingeniously-named LEGO WAR GAME reminds me a lot of the Lego wargames I came up with as a kid, right down to the advanced graphite-on-paper publishing technology. The big difference is that his system resulted in several epic battles, while mine never got off the ground.
