Re: [BB19] USA Augmented Soldier Frame

Thanks for the feedback, guys! I think that the light bley bits would look better in dark bley, sand green, or black. Overall pretty good but I'm not sure about the color blocking with the green and grey I really like the beefy look of this guy, although I also kind of agree on the color blocking. T...

[BB19] USA Augmented Soldier Frame

Here's an entry into the 2019 Blarney Build in the Brik by Brik category. It's the fourth in a series of iterations on what has turned out to be a very versatile frame. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7927/33635143058_54df14a608_z.jpg Introducing the new armoured, augmented, and impressively muscular...

[BB19] The Watchful Frog (Drunken Madness)

Here's my entry into the 2019 Blarney Build in the Drunken Madness category. It's a bipedal mech with spotlights on it. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7901/32569385687_fd312337e7_z.jpg Why are there four spotlights pointed in pretty much the same direction? Why do the mounts for the lights have turb...

Re: The 2,018 June July Jamboree

Yeah, surprising is definitely the word I would use. I'd be the first to tell you why anyone but me deserved to win, but I guess I won't argue. Congrats to everyone involved, I was really impressed with the entries in this contest. There was such a legitimate consistency of quality between all of th...

Re: Home Sweet Home [JJJ18]

Style: 8/10 The stuff with the crystal in it is properly surreal, and the interior of the ship's bridge is well done Substance: 6/10 The walls are very simple stacks of panels, but it's nothing particularly bad. The computers are cool, and the minifigs look quite good, though I can't really give any...

Re: [JJJ18] BROOOOOOOTAAAAAAAAALLS!

Style: 8/10 This really does feel like a Brootalz attack. Plus that armoured rancor is something to behold. Substance: 8/10 Again, the rancor. Those hardsuits are also great. Photography: 6/10 It never really feels like we get a feel for the entire scene. Which would be fine if it extended beyond th...

Re: [JJJ18] Solomun Islands, an Arhus War Story

Style: 7/10 The trees are all spaced nicely, close enough to feel like a dense forest, but far enough away to allow for the action to be seen. Substance: 6/10 There's not a whole lot to judge here, it's mostly just trees on baseplates (though I do like the use of the printed baseplate). The effects ...

Re: [JJJ18] Skion Battlefield

Style: 9/10 I love the overall look of this. The trenches, troops, bunker structure, barbed wire, and artillery all look great. The only thing I think might improve this is a few more Orks, and some slight colour variation in the landscaping wouldn't have hurt (though it's not hurting without it). S...

Re: [JJJ18] join the army they said...

Style: 7/10 The feel of sitting around and doing nothing really comes across, and it does feel like an outpost in the middle of nowhere. The troops are nice and uniform, as well. Substance: 6/10 I'm not entirely convinced by the walls, but I get that they're supposed to be ruins or ramshackle defens...

Re: [JJJ18] Unbearable Cold

Style: 9/10 The scene feels as quaint as you would think, and the lighting makes it feel like late evening with a low sun. The bits of snow on the roof really enhance the mood. Substance: 5/10 While the build comes together well as a whole, a lot of it could be built better. The cabin is main thing,...

Re: For the Triangle God [JJJ18]

Style: 8/10 Good colour choices, solid division of fore/mid/background, and really good posing of the minifigs. Substance: 8/10 The plate layering on the base is great, and I love the transition from a rough to smooth current on the little stream. Normally I'd say the rocks could be improved with a ...

Re: [JJJ18] Rage Itself

Style: 7/10 I mean he looks angry, that's for sure. Substance: 6/10 The flame arches are a nice idea, but it just feels like there's something missing. I'm also not the biggest fan of the parts used for the sword. The parts combo on the minifig is nice, though. Photography: 8/10 The minifig is well-...

Re: [JJJ18] Last Offensive on Bluvius Prime

Style: 8/10 Everything that's there is quite good, but it doesn't really seem like there's any threat to the Bluvians. It seems like they're just running out into an empty battlefield. I don't know if maybe the bushes are supposed to be explosions, but they just look like dead bushes to me. Some gun...
