BrikWars Inspiration


The internet is full of amazing resources for brick enthusiasts.  Here are some of our favorites.

Rising Concepts, LLC
The BrikWars Frappr!™ Map
If you're looking for in-depth resources and serious and reasoned discussions, keep scrolling down - there's some pretty amazing sites available to the brick connoisseur. The BrikWars Frappr! Map isn't one of them. The conversation level is juvenile, anonymous trolls run rampant in the chatroom, and thread topics are abused and ignored like a cellar full of Dimmies. It's a pretty fun place if you don't mind total chaos.

The important feature of a Frappr! map, of course, is that you can plunk down a map pin and see what other BrikWarriors are in your area - handy for organizing games (or, theoretically, for attracting internet pedophiles who don't realize the average BrikWars player is in his thirties). But it also has a pretty good support system of newsgroups, chatrooms, and social-networking functions as well, and of all the BrikWars forums for discussion it's always the most active.

LEGO® Resources

We understand that The LEGO® Company has some kind of websites of its own, but why bother with that corporate claptrap when all the good stuff is coming straight from the fans?

LUGNET™Todd Lehman and Suzanne Rich

This is the king of all brick enthusiast websites, the LEGO® Users' Group Network™.  Any LEGO®-related internet resource you could want is either available here or they can show you where to find it.

The most important part of the site (as far as we're concerned) are the extensive newsgroups, which BrikWars fans can use to organize games or discuss rules proposals.  You don't have to be a member to participate in the groups, although members do get to skip the email-verification step when posting messages.

BrickShelfBrickShelf L.L.C. and Kevin Loch

Another giant resource in the brick internet universe, BrickShelf allows brick enthusiasts free webspace for brick-related pictures.  The site also hosts Kevin Loch's instruction scans for just about every LEGO® set ever produced up until 1999.

There are literally gigabytes of images available to view in the BrickShelf galleries, and many of them are simply jaw-dropping.

The Peeron Inventory

This massive inventory is a catalogue of all LEGO® sets released, and the specific parts contained in each.  Or from another standpoint, it's a catalogue of all LEGO® parts released, and the specific sets in which they were contained.

Sadly, seems to have fallen by the wayside, overshadowed by the video-game-centric  But there's still plenty of wargaming resources available for those as are willing to google for them.  Here's some we enjoy.

Ståle Tevik

A valuable alternative to LUGNET's Gaming newsgroup, LEGO_Warfare is a Yahoo! Group started by Ståle Tevik for the purpose of discussing brick wargaming in general.


TROGDOR!Dave Eaton
BrikWars Troop Scorer

Dave Eaton put together a web-enabled BrikWars Troop Scoring utility using the BrikWars 2000 ruleset.  He also put together this fine Imperial ATAT, which is far more inspiring in its own way.  I mean, when was the last time you saw a troop scoring utility overrun the rebel base on Hoth.

BrikWars Inspiration

You'd be appalled to know what kind of sites we take inspiration from.  So we've listed a few of them here.

TROGDOR!Strong Bad

Trogdor was a man.  I mean, he was a dragon man.  Or maybe he was just a dragon.  But he was still TROGDOOOOORR!  TROGDOOOOORR!

Burninating the countryside, burninating the peasants.  Burninating all the people, in the thatched roof COTTAGEEEESSSSS!  Thatched roof COTTAGEEEEESSS!

And the Trogdor comes in the NIIIIIGHT!

Moses is one baaad motherf- shut yo' mouth!The Reverend Brendan Powell Smith
The Brick Testament

BrikWars is all about murder, mayhem, mindless destruction and vicious sadism.  But that's nothing compared to what you'll find in the average Bible.

The Tesla HowitzerTom Bearden
Scalar Wars

Nikola Tesla basically invented the 20th century, but all information on the man and his work was classified by the government after he made claims of having developed unstoppable superweapons.  As such, the credit for inventing the radio, the semiconductor, remote-controlled vehicles, and a host of other cool gadgets went to later engineers.

What were these superweapons?  Tom Bearden claims to know, and crackpots everywhere believe him and are freaking out.
