This looks really great, I hope that the day you post the sign ups for the forum battle won't be one of those days that I decide to take a break from the forum.

Is this just a cool moc or is it hinting at a battle to come?

It's for a forum battle.  I haven't figured everything out yet, like factions and what-all.

But I did spend $40 on BrickLink on parts for it last week.  I got them in the mail today and immediately went to work.

The BL order's main stuff was grey for the rock wall, but I also got some green plates and other miscellaneous stuff.  I used almost half of the grey bricks I ordered, meaning I'll need to get more before I'm able to complete baseplate #4 which hasn't even been started yet.  Fortunately I think I have enough green plates for now.

Looking good, as the French would say: "Croissants n'est pas rein"

As a new battlefield is constructed, the last remains of an old one are slowly dismantled to have their briks recycled.

The first 4 sections are now complete.  I posed some guys for fun.

I haven't been this excited about Lego in years.   :studgod:

Looks absolutely fantastic! Just the size of a build like that makes it look good, and you have pulled off some excellent shaping on top of that. I'm in awe. I have to put together a seal of approval.  :boss:

It's not big enough.  I need to add more baseplates.

Those are some beautiful IM troops. Also, magic peaches, every Assyrian on the planet must be having an aneurysm.

Today I built more IM soldiers.  First I worked on the Artifact Recovery and Acquisitions (ARA) team.   I built 5 more guys, two of them got the shotguns, one of them got some kind of size 2 shard gun, and then I gave two of them size-3 shard cannons.  Those guys obviously are compensating, but the IM is going to need heavy weapons in this battle.


Image

I made two more of these heavy sniper guys, and I modded their guns.  These snipers are size 2.  You'll notice on their backpacks each of these guys has one stick grenade.  They can use those if enemy close-combat troops try to get too close.


Image

And I built some more of the regulars.  I haven't been able to source the special visors RedRover uses, so they've just got normal ones.  I gave three of these guys the Zaffre-6 sniper rifles, which I think are supposed to be reserved for sniper teams, but I don't have the parts to build their regular shard rifles.  :(

I now have 27 IM dudes.  I'll probably stop at 40 and see about using other factions as allies.  I have like 100 ASE guys, who will be the primary opponent of the IM, so I've gotta bulk up the IM team with more dudes and hopefully mechs or vehicles.
