The BrikWiki: Like a Library of Death.
Brick Links - December 7, 2010

It has been around for a while, but it has never made it into the newsfeed. I’m talking about the BrikWiki — BrikWars’ wiki where you can learn about Triangleism, Orange Transparent, or the horrific events which took place at Hospital 555. Below I’ve linked some of the better-written pages. Go have a look:

Battle Reports - November 23, 2010

2010 has been a year of battle and conflict for space factions. The Immortals have prompted an arms race among many of the star empires and sparked huge clashes between them. Notably, the long awaited Round 2 of the Peach Massacre of G.R. 2010 is finally being uploaded to the forums, so check it out as 200+ minifigs from three different star empires face off in an epic free for all to the death.

Counterparts to the Deadly Spaceman: Spacefemme Fatales?
Brick Links - April 2, 2010

There are some truly epic battles going on in the forums right now, so rather than posting links to any of those, I’m going to leave it to you to find them and send you to go look at this other thing instead.

Swedish freelance artist and Diglett fan Niklas Jansson has posted a massive pile of concept sketches and thoughts to his Android Arts site about redesigning classic LEGO Space themes. There’s a whole lot of material to plow through, but look towards the bottom half of the page for highlights like a massive OTC tunneler for Ice Planet, some Zaku-styled Blacktrons, and of course the sexy Space Babes.

Battle Reports - December 21, 2009

Speaking of battle reports from 2009, Arkbrik’s taken the trouble to collect links to a couple dozen of them, and has posted them to the forum in one big Battle Report List.

Why was Copenhagen selected for a meeting of world leaders? Easy access to Billund, experts say
Battle Reports - December 17, 2009

There have been plenty of awesome battle reports coming in over the last couple of months that I’ve been too lazy to post, but there was no way I could let this one pass without comment. It’s the first one I’ve seen to put Obama and his well-known superpowers to use in combat, to truly stupendous effect. This is a moment that will shape history.

The pictures aren’t the best quality, but from start to epic conclusion this is truly a battle not to be missed.

"Engaging in imaginative play helps my development!"
Brick Links - March 27, 2009

As all experienced BrikWars players know, playing with Lego, combined with learning that rules are made to be changed, leads directly and inevitably to massive psychotic explosions of violence. Surprising no one, this is the combination of factors that lead SkyNet to destroy humanity, as shown on tonight’s episode of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

As much as I hate to promote anything on the Fox network, I felt that this one had to be shared.

On Death War Day 2, Natalya maneuvers her Assyrian cruiser to place the Czech fighter inside the barrel of the main cannon, right before hitting the fire button.
Battle Reports, Forum Battles - December 14, 2008

December seems to be the month for daily-update combat serials, starting with Reasonably Clever doing a QuikWars version of their annual LEGO Advent Calendar feature. It’s the Town Calendar versus the Castle Calendar, fighting to the death while both attempt to free the imprisoned Santa Claus from evil Martians.

Pesgores followed up a little bit later with “Superproject Codename: Persogoras,” a play-by-forum battle between the Rebels (played by Moronstudios), the Empire (OneEye589), the Pirates (Bonn-o-Tron), and the Droids (IVhorseman).

Last but not least, Natalya followed suit with the Death War Project, making up for its later start with some of the best BrikWars action photography to date. The combined-forces battle sets the Assyrian Star Empire (pesgores and Natalya), the Czech Republic (Moronstudios and AmmoMan), the Space Ninjas (Theblackdog), the Space Pirates (Rody), and the Gludavian Raiders (Niflheim) in deadly combat from clashing ground forces up to the mighty Assyrian space cruiser.

In space, no one can hear your squad get sucked out a hull breach.
Battle Reports - December 6, 2008

Mercenaries, Alliance, and Reavers, oh my! DaCheez spent more photos on his troops messing with the space station’s environmental controls than on what were reportedly some heavy firefights, but watching squads get crushed by artificial gravity and sucked out airlocks is pretty entertaining nonetheless.

Fox and the Daily Sun are against toy badguys.
Brick Links - December 4, 2008

BrickArms just got slammed with some sensationalist nonsense by the British tabloid The Daily Sun, and the story went on to get picked up by Fox News. Leaving aside the discussion about what it says about Fox News that they happily use the soaraway Sun as a reliable news source, this serves to remind me that I’m way behind in taking about new BrickArms products released in the last couple of months. Which is a shame, because they’re awesome.

(Before you read either article, if you’re not aware already, BrickArms doesn’t produce “al Qaeda terrorist” minifigs. Duh.)

Naturally, all this media attention has accomplished is flooding BrickArms with more orders than they can process. So feel free to run over there and check out the great new stuff, then weep in agony because you can’t order any of it anymore. Thanks a lot, Fox News!
