Led by the football-obsessed Piltogg, the Minnesota Gamers Guild is making a name for itself for its genocidal crusades. Earlier struggles of ethnic cleansing against peach-colored minifigs are now being followed up with battles to wipe out the forces of Mega Bloks.

Be warned! Piltogg hasn’t yet perfected the art of the line break, so you’ll need to resize your browser window for some of the write-ups to line up correctly.

More battle reports are posting every month as the summer fighting season swings into full gear. This time around we’ve got dimension-hopping side quests, demon gates, assassins at McDonald’s, exploding horses, a soldier with a grenade for a head, a mech with its feet on backwards, and HOT MAGMA. Not to mention an accounting error that destroys the world.

Andrew Colunga’s ingeniously-named LEGO WAR GAME reminds me a lot of the Lego wargames I came up with as a kid, right down to the advanced graphite-on-paper publishing technology. The big difference is that his system resulted in several epic battles, while mine never got off the ground.

NELUG rings in again with another battle of amazing constructions and unnecessarily Byzantine rules as always – to the point that no one can sort out afterwards exactly what happened, but the photos are awesome nonetheless.

From Elroy’s description on the forum:

“I’d write up a battle report, but, honestly, parts of this battle were so complex as far as who was fighting who, that I’m not sure I’d get any of it right at this point.”

… “Add in a few spies and traitors on both sides and eventually no one knew who was on what side, so you basically shot at anyone who was shooting at you.

It was awesome.”

Deep in the ancient recesses of Portugal, the forces of Pesgores are battling away in a series of conflicts described only as Triangle Jobs. While the meaning of this phrase remains perpetually ambiguous, you can expect to see wildly malfunctioning rocket launchers, stormtroopers used as projectiles, and massive casualties from friendly fire.

After a seeming eternity away, word is filtering down across the AFOL forums that the Little Armory is coming back and bringing all its custom minifig weapons and equipment back to market. This is great news for anyone who missed them the first time around and whose minifigs are still looking for more ways to kill one another. Keep an eye on the Little Armory site for further bulletins as events warrant.

McDo and Cyborgorc Productions have put together a show-stopping stop-motion tribute to BrikWars. They present Once Upon a Stranded Toybox, in which the armies of Dark Owl and Indianapolis Jack brave blood, destruction, and musical numbers in “an epic battle for the universe, and one piece of pizza!”

No props; no backdrop; only two minifigs standing in the road. In a single arresting vignette, james+burgundy captures the very essence of BrikWars, and then splatters it all over the plastic asphalt.

Another summary post this month – February sees a bunch of folks playing their first battles, or at least posting pictures for the first time. My favorite line comes from spacetime_d20′s write-up for the Archipelago Gaming Guild’s game, describing Sandra’s retroactive base placement strategy:

“Sandra, in charge of Archaeologists Inc., went first. Her first move was to snag the nearest treasure chest. After being informed that she would come up half an inch short on the movement, she nudged her base that much to the left. Presto! Within range to loot the chest!

My response: ‘She’s got the hang of this already!’”
