Studs: Sydney Adult Fans of LEGO®
Studs is the local LEGO® User's Group in Sydney, Australia,
and they don't do anything small. Their battles are vast
and wide-ranging, involving hundreds of minifigs on the field.
This epic scale is made possible by a refreshingly loose attitude
towards the rules, and there has occasionally been some argument
as to whether they are playing BrikWars or some other game entirely.
Who cares? The pictures are amazing, and that's all that

Block site, which in turn is hosted by OzBricks.com.
III: The Battle of Tank Stream
- June 3, 2000
The forces of James Bond
go up against the evil SHAG organization in a conflict

matters, the notorious space pirate Captain Ahab arrived
in his space galleon crashed the party and did a terrible
job of looting anything of value.
reigns in a battle of epic proportions.

The samurai James Bond-sai
and King Richard II lead opposing medieval armies that
seek to conquer the magnificent Castle Kevin and rescue
the fair princesses within. King Kevin, the current

XII: Piratical Seafaring BrikWars -
January 27, 2002
An enigmatic advertisement
from a resort island tourist board ("Free Treasure,
Come and Get it") attracts pirates and warships
from all over the Pacific. Four great ships, "Buffy
the Pirate Slayer," the "Ross Beard Runner,"
the Spanish Galleon "Insert Name Here," and
the pink-shielded longboat of the Viking Feminist Movement
each vied to gain the purported treasures for themselves.
Giant spiders, fighting monks, and a whaling detachment
from the Pequod also played a part.

lesson in Newtonian physics.
XIV: Way Too Much Carnage-
June 9, 2002
This battle was so large
that nobody seems to have any clear idea of what went
on, except that a good time was had by all. A
half-dozen or more spacefaring armies weighing in at
500CP apiece laid waste to one another in a small and
very unfortunate town.

stormtrooper into a cuddly yellow Belville teddy bear.
XV: Hijinks in the Highlands -
June 9, 2002
The Studs headed to Mittagong
and staged a "BrikWars of truly biblical proportions,"
with the intention of setting the world's record for
Biggest Medieval BrikWars Battle Ever Staged, despite
already holding all previous records in that category.
The game was in fact truly enormous, and we're eagerly
hoping for a write-up. In the meantime, however, there's
lots of pictures to gape at.

for the photos of the wildly-pooping dinosaurs.

to cull the herd with some well-placed ultraviolence.
XVII: Napoleanic Warfare is an Offense to God
- March 1, 2004
Studs crew stages a Napoleanic battle over a semi-fortified
medieval town. They find themselves roundly punished
for their errors when the fighting concludes in the
most unnatural and offensive possible result: a military
victory by the French!
