Forget mecha that can flip you the bird, build ones that can dab. We truly are evolving as a Lego tabletop wargaming community.  :tiger:  :sparta:

This is probably done for now, especially if RedRover gives it the thumbs-up. Hoping to get it into a forum battle by December!

I got a ton of arctic sets last year and have been trying to figure out how to make space stuff from them. I thought of this space tow truck for my Space Repair Garage:

Here was my first pass blocking out the shape in bricks:

I added ugly striping to make it ugly but interesting

And then most recently I did reworking to make it more greebly:

In case you're wondering, yes there will be a gun emplacement on top for Brikwars.

Did a quick Nausicaa of the Valley of the Winds build.

That is just a warm-up to make vehicles and more troops for these this blue/brown faction.  They were already a little dieselpunk but I'll push them all the way to ghibli-punk.

Image

The Space Repair Garage Truck is quite far along as well.  Thanks to a lot of helpful feedback, I've been pushed to really work on the shaping and greebling.  Working on the interior right now.

Sabertooth cavalry! Wow!
Also, the repair garage ship looks very interesting and in character.

Took a couple days off to avoid losing them and worked on a new shelf for my Lego bins.  Been planning it for a while, and finally got it done.  It gives me a little extra storage and build space, and helps keep the bricks off the floor.
